Ok So this thread is going to be dedicated to the idea of "use what you got and make it work". those that know me at the range know i take some unconventional (read that "cheap ass") equipment and run it fairly ok. and I may post examples of that equipment later because, today I took it to an extreme...

Ive been shopping around for some quad load shotgun caddies as that is the method i am pursuing to master. Problem is I cant find exactly what i want for a reasonable amount. $90-$200 is NOT a reasonable amount to my cheap ass. so I thought about getting out the ole dremel and making my own. As bonus,I wanted to make em with a budget of exactly $0.00 dollars...and thats exactly what I did.

Using commen household items. An old lid for a plastic box, some binder clips iused to hold targets up, some rivets and some 550 cord i proceded to make gold!

24 rd. Quad load vest!

Posted Image

I cut clips in thirds and sanded down the jagged edges and burs and bent them enough to retain the shells during running and recoil yet be easy to extract. a tough balance..I cut a 10"x7" rectangle out of the lid and riveted the clips to the plastic.

Ive only had a few hours to play with the vest but so far my fastest time is just a hair over 4 seconds for 8 shells! Still fighting fumbles. but compared to 6 seconds for load 2 and and a whopping 10 seconds for 8 rounds weakhand, I say Ill stick to the quad load method..

The vest will take from 2 3/4" up to 3 1/2" shells.

Aim small. Miss small.

Nice job!
How stiff is the plastic lid? like cardboard? or 1/4" plywood?
Does it bend at all ?
If it bends, does that cause problems with stability of the shells in the clips?

Nice! I was thinking of doing kind of the same thing but spending a little more. I thought about using EMT pipe straps insted of binder clips. The're about $.50ea so about $8 for 16 shells plus something to mouunt them on.

Ever since those came out, I've thought they looked like fuse holders out of electrical disconnect boxes.

And Now, feast your eyes on version 2.0

 

 

Based on trials with my homemade piece of crap aka 1.0, I made some modifications. I used plexiglass, cut it in half and sanded down the corners. then i screwed 3 Taccom quadloads to it and a stretchy belt. (They were out of black so one is brown. who cares) letting the user have comfort and retention. having it in two separate pieces allows the user full range of motion. Also allows the user to separate buckshot/slugs from bird shot, or if a stage requires the user to go prone, the bottom one can be removed before the stage starts.

 

 

First field test comes tomorrow during USSA Pro-am. Wish me luck!

I can get you a lot of those metal mineral ach straps, and electric fuse holders will work also! Hit me up if you need any parts.

I like it!  

 

Is that the little shotgun that could, AKA the CZ 712 Utility?  If so, how do you like it?

Ouch!  

 

You should think about stippling your CZ.  I did mine and man oh man does it stick in your hands!

awesome video! Do you have the end cap off the tube so the rounds slide out  for practice? If so isn't the resistance different without the spring + follower?
