    I like the idea but it just adds so much weight & Bulk!

    My 509 wears a FOUR round side saddle. That way i have SOME on board and not as heavy as six...

    I use Esstac shotcards and velcro.

    https://www.skdtac.com/Esstac-Shotgun-Card-p/ess.106.htm

    Going on 6 years now. Zero issues. 3M industrial is the stickiest velcro but Walmart brand is ok. Just degrease well either way. I use grain alcohol.

    No closet hanger guns either. Ive stood in beaver ponds all day. Saltmarshes. Woods swamps. Done 3gun with em.

    Plus they make a 20ga too! But none for any smaller:(

    I'll 2nd EssTac velcro side saddle. Mine resides on a Mossy 590A1. The weight and bulk is there no matter what system you use. Shotgun shells are heavy. I've never used the 'hard' side saddles. I like the idea of being able to remove and replace with a fresh 7 round bandolier. Although, if I've gone through 7 rounds and have to reload, I'm in some serious trouble. But, I guess it's why we buy insurance? Just in case.
