Esstac Shotgun Card
Loop Velcro not included.
Esstac Shotgun card - Simple and fast. My jedi master showed me the true benefit of this simple shotgun reload. Slap some velcro on your shotgun's left side. Load a few shotgun cards, and place one on the gun. You can fit the spares (back to back if it's a bigger pouch) in a single mag pouch. As you reload the shotgun, tear off the empty shotgun card, pull out a new one and slap it on. You're ready to slay even more zombies. Super easy, cheap when compared to other side saddles, and very, very fast. View More SKD Staff Picks
7 rounds of 12 gauge ammunition can be carried on the Esstac Shotgun Card, which is backed with hook velcro. Put two of these back to back, and you have a 14-round bundle that fills up a double M4 magazine pouch. Line the side of your receiver with loop velcro, and you have an ammo "side-saddle" system that you can replace in an instant- perfect for Law Enforcement use, whether it is for breaching or less-lethal rounds. The versatility of these Shotgun Cards will prove themselves many times over the more you use them!
Note from Stu @ Esstac about the elastic loop longevity:
"Shotty cards, treat them like a magazine. They will wear more quickly with use rather then just sitting loaded, they will lose some tension over time but that is normal for elastic, I have a couple ammo cans full of loaded shotgun cards and they are still GTG several years later."
Each card takes the same space as a 30rd AR mag. Makes packing slugs and buckshot in a chest rig simple. Quality of the materials and stitching is excellent.
Very good quality! Pretty quick delivery! Will purchase again through time and use!
Shot card so good. Hold too many shot. You shoot all day long, then you remove and replace because Velcro. You love. I promise.
Got these to quickly plus up ammo ready for reloads on the go, and it was important that they hold up well without giving in to the weight of a full load of buckshot. This is why I went with SKD instead of a cheaper competitor’s offering that was more flexible. They are exactly what I expected, and stay on the Velcro loop tape very securely no matter how much I’m moving. Recommend these for anyone needing more than one cradle load of shells ready to go and speed is an issue.
Man this thing is tough!!! Very rigid and strong!! Absolute quality and very impressed with the stitching!! Ain't gonna lie it was hard to get them in at 1st, but I'm sure in time it will adjust, does not affect how fast I can pull them out and load the tube! Great product and will definitely get more, would love to see more colors, different camo, od green, red, orange long as the quality continues I'll be buying! Thank you SKD tactical!!
Thus far, I have been very impressed with the quality and construction of the Esstac shotgun cards. When using industrial strength Velcro on the receiver, it is strong enough that you can hold the card by itself and the Velcro will support the weight of the shotgun. I have been in law enforcement for over 25 years and I have used different types of side saddles over the years but they have always ended up failing from hard use or not meeting expectations. However, sometimes the most simple solution is the best solution. Being able to change my load out from buckshot to slugs and vice versa by just ripping off one card and replacing it with another is very handy. Another nice feature is that 2 of the 7 round cards fit into double M4 magazine pouch like a glove. The Esstac shotgun cards are a good piece of kit to have and you won’t be disappointed.
Excellent product, fast shipping. Will recommend to all.
These are well made and a step above most of the competition.. shells are held firm in place yet are smooth to extract .. I got the seven round strips even though mine only holds 5+1... I put one one the receiver and one on the stock giving me almost 3 full top offs on the shotgun with two more in the back pocket well you get the idea ... The only thing I don't like is that the shell loops are made from a elastic material and will dry out one day but at only $15 each it's not really going to break the bank to replace one hear and there.. stitching is done well and the Paracord loops helps to quickly remove empty ones ....
