Esstac Shotgun Card

by Sean
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."

    ESSTAC Shotgun Card

    When I received these and installed on my Mossberg 590 pump..... I really felt this was a quality made product, very tough material and more importantly very strong elastic. Looks like a great product from my initial experience.

    Solid Option

    Posted by Bob Smith on 25th Jul 2022

    I bought these for use with a Beretta 1301 in a 2 day shotgun course. They worked quite well. I bought some Velcro backing off Amazon for the shotgun receiver and was able to switch these on and off easily enough. When these are new the elastic is very stiff and getting shells loaded in them is difficult, I'd suggest loading the shells into the card off of the shotgun if possible. I think that's one fair complaint, is that compared to a rigid side saddle it is not as easy to get shells into and out of these shotgun cards. To that end buy enough of these so that you can just swap out the cards. I think my bigger complaint is the cost, and that's why I knocked off one star. For what these are they seem expensive, but it's made in the US and you want them to work well. An instructor I had said to think of them as a magazine, and in that context they're not so expensive. My only point there is these will wear out in time. At least with a magazine you can replace springs, followers, etc.

    Well made

    Good stitching, quality product, on par with quality you would expect from Esstac. Shotgun cards themselves are just a good option as it is, if you are looking to try them out you would do well to spend a little extra and get some of the best ones out there, which are these, otherwise you simply can't pass judgement on the concept and whether it works for you or not.

    Prompt delivery - Product Awesome!

    My home feels that much safer with two 7 round cards to keep my hungry Maverick 88 sated. The product is inexpensive, delivered fast, would definitely purchase again. Also, SDK Tactical stickers... Who doesn't love those, right?

    A high quality product, fits/functions/looks great. Side saddles are a thing of the past. I would recommend to anyone looking for a versatile loading solution for a shotgun.
