This is a discussion on Shotgun Gear Practicality: Side Saddle versus Shot Shell Caddy within the Defensive Carry & Tactical Training forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; ...
The side saddle IMO is the way to go for HD and training. Why confuse the issue with a caddy in training if your not going to apply it in the real world..Train like you will fight....Again, nice video...
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means, that you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you......
I have a side saddle on my 870 tac.........but I also have a home defense chest rig that has shotgun ammo, rifle and pistol mags at the ready that I can wear with underwear and only takes a few seconds to drop onto my shoulders.Obviously the rig cannot be used for every situation but for some it can.Seeing me in my skivvies with my chest rig on may even give a home invader cause for pause.
The easy way is always mined.
i found a deal on the keltec ksg shotgun, that holds 14+1, if you are using 2" mini shells capacity can go up to 24+1 !! i I laugh at the photos on various forums of ksg's w/ a dang shell caddie on the gun for even more ammo! LOL.
I have the side saddle on my 1100. No complaints.
Well I just throw on my matching bandoliers and kick the door out and that usually scares the crap out of them.
No sidesaddle here. Wife is a righty and I'm a lefty.

Good videos and they make good points.
My shotgun is a bit more simplistic and I do not run tactical courses with it like I did with my 870 when I was on the job.
I figure if someone tries to break into my house while I am home and they get past the doberman and the pit bull my Stoeger double and a Glock 23 backup should handle the job if I do my part.
I know butt cuffs are a bit "old school" however so am I.

I've seen too many side saddles fail during training classes to put much trust in them. I know thay have gotten better over the years but I'll still prefer my spare ammo on the belt or in a carry pouch of some kind.
