Are those elastic buttstock shotshell holders any good? Don't want a sling type, and not sure about others that mount on the receiver, etc. Looking for something for my Mossy 590.

this is a home-made jobber but works great. It's separate from the sling. Most of the commercial ones I see are junk quality.

the sidesaddle is pretty handy, throws off the balance but overall I like mine; 6 extra rounds right there quick.

oh yeah, one thing you might like Gunny is to spray the grip and pump with some truck bedliner stuff; you can buy the DIY stuff in aeresol cans for about $10-15. I did this to mine and it looks great (hardly tell) but adds a lot of grip for ya.

This is my tac-light also, I clamped it to the tube and put a remote cord on it, glued velcro to the pump to mount the switch, I love this setup better than anything else I've tried; the surefire builit in ones are too pricey for me.

quite helpfull indeed. if I am hunting ducks and a flock of geese come in I can quickly dump and reload with 3 1/2" in no time flat.

I use the cheap stretchy ones that fit over the butt stock

i have one of the butstock elastic ones on my single shot 12g gun.. it's ok.

I don't care for the reciever holder style.. not sure why.. just don't. :)

I have a belt pouch that rides the side of the leg that flips open and holds like 24 shells. now that I like.. :)

I like them, but some are better than others cause they won't move while shooting.

I've not had good luck with the elastic ones, they stretch out, and won't hold the shells. I perfer the shotgun bandoleer belt. This is just an example of the leather belts that are out there. $75 Grab the shotgun, and the belt. Put the belt on when you have the time.

mine is from Allen and has survived a whole goose/duck season with out a problem. at a mere $6 I can afford to replace it if it gets sloppy
