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!

Dimensions: 2" x 7 3/8"
Loop Velcro not included.

Note from Stu @ Esstac about the elastic loop longevity:
"Shoty cards, treat them like a magazine. They will wear more quickly with use rather then just sitting loaded, they will loose 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."

A great accesory January 18, 2015
Reviewer: Shane Lanphear from Hudson, WI United States  
This is a great product, it holds shells perfectly and is easy to quick change if you have multiple instead of refilling the loops.

Good. Just shy of perfect January 18, 2015
Reviewer: GONZ9731 from NY United States  
Elastic is strong. Very. Hard to insert/reinsert shells in the elastic if that is your intent.
The paracord loop on the black model is OD green.
IMHO it should be black. It surprised me that it wasn't. Minor complaint still 100% functional I just expected better from ESSTAC. For uniform duty use its awkward.
ESSTAC doesn't bind tape their edges. The nylon web/elastic just terminates and is heat sealed. I'm sure ESSTAC has enough feedback that it's not a problem doing it this way or knowing ESSTAC they'd change the design. Again, It's just not what I've experienced or am used to.
Would I buy these again? Absolutely. For the money and for what I need them to do they're cheap enough to buy a few load them and have thm easily accessible in various bags and  pouches. If they last me a few years they did their job.

Good quality but long January 12, 2015
Reviewer: Jack Bones from Northern VA. United States  
Really nice quality but it is a little too long.  I wanted to see how it would work on my 590A1 and it's a little too long.  I'll keep it as a spare though.

Great side saddle option January 12, 2015
Reviewer: Josh V from Boston, MA United States  
After looking around for a way to both increase carrying capacity on the gun, along with having a way of carrying extra shells I stumbled upon a YouTube video where the guy used a carrier of this type with velco on the receiver and I knew I had my answer. These cards are very well built for the cost and hold very secure on a patch of industrial Velcro mounted to my receiver.  I now have 7 instead of 6 on the side, but also the ability to quickly remove the extra shells and either use the gun without it, or quickly replace an empty card with a full one.  They fit perfect loaded back to back in an ar magazine pouch. Easy to grab, easy to carry, a great option to a fixed side saddle.

Great tool January 12, 2015
Reviewer: Heather S. from New Jersey  
The shotgun card is an incredibly useful little shotgun accessory, makes it very easy to carry shells in a standard magazine pouch or on your gear. The velcro on the back can get annoying, but overall great quality little tool.
