pistol/rifle loops on Shotgun ammo slide

Rifle/Revolver loops cannot be affixed to shotgun loops.    Per ammo carrying section of rule book.   Have seen slides containing both shotshell and pistol cartridge loops.   Just saw a slide having 8 shotshell loops and 6 pistol loops in front of the middle shotshell loops.    Would that be legal?   Please pardon.   Been around awhile but just started shooting.

If the pistol loops are attached to the SG loops, that would not be legal. Next to, would be. To the best of my knowledge.

 

If you have a picture, that would be helpful.

ROC RULING re affixing R/P AMMO LOOPS ON SG LOOPS (Dec 2016)

AMMO LOOPS As.jpg  AMMO LOOPS Bs.jpg 

NOT "TRADITIONAL DESIGN" 

NOT ON THE LIST OF APPROVED "METHODS OF CARRY" (SHB p. 3) = NOT LEGAL.

Applicable rule = “P” + misses for "Use of illegally acquired ammo"

 

ADDENDUM:

The ROC has previously clarified (and recently codified) that carrying ammunition in an illegal/unapproved manner is a "NO CALL" unless that ammo is actually USED for stage reloads (e.g. in a secured bandolier, hatband loops, buttstock loops, suspender loops, etc.):

Note: Any ammo carried to the firing line in an illegal/unapproved manner that is actually used for stage reloads falls under the “Use of illegally acquired ammunition” penalties. 

SHB p.3

 

Further clarification:

The entire slide itself is ILLEGAL with the R/P ammo loops (loaded or not) affixed to the SG loops

- Rifle/Revolver loops cannot be affixed to shotgun loops. 

SHB p.3

...therefore ANY ammunition (including shotgun shells) used from that illegal equipment falls under the prohibition & penalties.
