One trick I have found to be very helpful is a little two-round holder from Safariland http://www.safariland.com/DutyGear/p...spx?pid=080-12 that clips on the belt. I put a velco piece on it and my stock so the holder stays with the gun while in storage, but when I grab the shotgun I can easily grab the holder and slip it on the belt. This gives me two quick rounds for reload if needed, or as I use it I keep two slugs in to facilitate a select slug drill instead of having to dig in the pouch.
>>That's interesting. I'll have to acquire one and work it into my practice routine.

BTW--Your blog is excellent. I've read a few things there and will read a few more when I go back to work tonight.
