Shotgun Bandoleer

Recommended Posts

What would be the legality of the use of a non secured bandoleer that holds the shells in vertically staged pockets such as a SG belt would have instead of the standard horizontally staged configuration? I'm wanting to get such an animal custom made but wanted to see if anyone could find a rule that would prevent it from being legal.

Checkout the Tupelo Bando from Tombstone Leather, it might be what you’re looking for.

Think Smokestack in CA uses one.

 

If you can get ahold of him. Be willing to bet he has worked all the bugs out of making one work.

Mind if I ask why you want that configuration? 

 

Reloading both SxS and pump shotguns at high speed requires pulling multiple fresh shells simultaneously. The only way to do that effectively is to have the case heads aligned with each other. If my mental picture of your proposed design is correct you’re intentionally setting the case heads offset from each other.

Bottom line: It is NOT LEGAL.

You need to post a sketch or picture of a mock-up.

This is the basic concept upon which the ROC made the "NOT LEGAL" ruling.

(the question was asked & answered in the linked thread referenced above):
