Does anybody have or has used one of these Gunslinger climbers? For the last 11 years I used the Treelounges.The new version really soured me. I read on another site about the Gunslingers. All I heard was how good they are.Last year I bought one. I tried it on my property.I was very impressed. Before hunting season I bought a second one.With the Gunslinger you face the tree. At first I was leary of that.I want to say the Gunslingers are a great stand. Very easy to climb with.Easy coming down.You aren't jammed up against the tree. You can use the tree as a rest or stand and turn around using the rail on the seat for a rest.The tree gives you good cover.It's quiet and very comfortable. They have two weight capacities. They have 250# model or the 350# model.They also have another model where you face away from the tree which is call the Combow. They are allot cheaper then your basic Treelounge and to me a much better climber.It does take a few times getting use to putting in on the tree. Once you get the hang of it It's happy climbing.Anybody interested I'll post their name ,phone number and address.

Glad you asked BigTyme, I have never read an actual test reports on the Gunslinger.I saw one at a hardware store in Ga that caught my eye.I asked questions on another hunting site where most of the guys are from Georgia.Almost everyone praised them.I asked enough qustions believe me. I contacted JRH Sport Industries,Inc. 6550 S.R 16 St. Augustine Florida 32092 (904) 940-3381. I do know they go to hunting shows. I saw them at Buck-a-rama in Perry Ga last year.Last time I talked to them at B-A-Rama they didn't have a website yet. If they do now I don't know.I have a bad hip from a motorcycle accident 30+ years ago. I used the Treelounges with no problem. The Gunslinger to me is allot easier and safer to use. No turning around.Like I mentioned before you face the tree. You're not right on the tree so you still have a good view.It does take a little practice putting it on the tree. I used both of mine last year. Never the slightest slip. I was in heavy rain and it gripped the tree well.They do offer an off season special. It starts Jan 1 and ends April 30th.They have two different weight capacity models 250# 350#. I bought the 350 # model . I didn't want to press my luck LOL.Give them a call and they'll send you a brochure.Since I got these Gunslingers I don't use the TL's near as much.In fact very seldom anymore.If I can answer any questions let me know. No I don't work for them or anyway affiliated with them. If I like something I let it be known. If I don't like something I let it be known also.

Just wondering if anyone else has tried one of these Gunslingers yet?Now that the season is over the Gunslingers proved themselves again.They are a great climber.Nows the time to contact JRH Sports.Their off season sale should be going on.Believe me if I didn't think they were a great climber I'd let it be known.
