    I had one of the slings that hold 20 rounds of ammo, but that just unbalanced everything. I do still have it as it makes a grab and go accessory.

    I'm looking for a good pouch. I've been using SAW pouches and they seem to work OK, but there's got to be a better way of attaching a large number of easily accessible 12g shells to ones body. I don't like the molle issued ones.

    I haven't tried the bandolier, yet.

    Thanks for all the replies.

    Bandoliers are an interesting way to go... It's so easy to load......til you have to use the one ones on your back.

    6 on the receiver, 5 more on the stock, and another 4 on the sling. If I need more than that, it's handy that I wear cargo pants, so I can just shove backup rounds in my pockets without adding any extra bulk to my belt.

    +1 for the Mesa Tactical side saddle.

    Just make sure to put some Loctite on the screws and it'll serve you well.

    I use a dump pouch hanging off my belt. Its a small dump pouch, and still I think I loaded it with like 30 or 40 shells the other day in a dry run. Its still not as fast as that pinwheel thing--I kinda like that.

    These things are amazing. Bit pricey, though. Youtube them for a better description on how they work. The wording makes it seem complicated, but it couldn't be easier.

    Is this 870 a 12 gauge? I want to get a Mesa 4 shot for my 20 gauge. If you could do me a favor I would really appreciate it. Could you measure the hole centers on the trigger housing pin holes? Thanks in advance.


    Just found out they make these in 20 gauge too. So, never mind.

    This.

    I have 6 round on my 870 Serbu Super Shorty that gives me two full reloads, a 6 round on my 14 inch 870 Police for one full reload and an 8 rounder on my Winchester SX2 which gives me one full tube reload (holds 8+1).

    I love the fact that the holders can be removed and replaced as fast as you can pull velcro and you don't run the risk of jacking up your receiver with a hard saddle.

    I just installed a VangComp DSAC unit on my 870. Over all of the other "side saddle"-type units I've checked out, this seems to offer the advantage that no threadlocker is required to keep the unit from falling apart. I also like the idea that the replacement trigger group pins are captured in the same manner that the factory pins are, and that you can't bind the receiver by overtightening the pins/screws. Also a plus - the stainless trigger group pins match the silver-colored bolt assembly (it's a blued Police Magnum w/ wood furniture). Another plus - the removable shell carrier can be quickly replaced with another fully-loaded carrier.

    I haven't been to the range with the gun yet, but really like what I see so far. I'll certainly report back after doing a few qual courses with it.

    i just keep one of those generic 5 round elastic slip ons on the stock. i like the ability to quickly roll it over to the other side of the stock if i have to switch shoulders for whatever reason.

    awhile back i saw a video where a guy carried a mag full of rounds as a speed loader for his revolver. it was pretty fast compared to doing it 1 at a time. i wonder if the same concept would work for pump shotguns now that 12g mags are available.
