    i'm looking for a shotgun sling with swivels included that have ammo loops on the sling. I know that Butler Creek has one but it doesn't come with swivels its a loop system. any other ideas? Thanks.

    It's the only sling I use for my rifles and shotgun.

    I have one for my 590 that I got from Blackhawk. Nice sling, but I pretty much hate it. Makes the shotgun front heavy and too unwieldy.

    I thought about posting this but, didn't want to rain on Glock's idea. Since you have, I will wholly agree.

    Early in, I too tried this to up my shell count. Post quickly learning that carrying the rounds forward was a problem, I turned the sling and carried them aft. Having the rounds swinging at the butt helped. However, the problem remained, a weight / pendulum issue.

    B Coyote recommends the mini sneaky. I went this route several years ago for rife mag and shell carry... goes well in the trunk, grab and get. I've never looked back.

    I'll join the parade. Unless there is some unusual situation, putting the ammo on the sling is just not a very good idea with a shotgun.

    Thanks for all the responses. i never really thought about the 4 extra shells throwing off the weight of the gun/making it front heavy. I think i will just stick with a basic sling. Thanks again.

    This isn't a good idea.

    If you're running, the sling will be swinging side to side and the extra weight will throw you off and/or the sling may hit you. It's easier to carry extra shells on the belt than on the gun. Arms tire.
