The USMC Full Spectrum Battle Equipment System was designed to meet the needs of America's Marine Corps who is first to be sent to the most dangerous conflicts in the world. With an emphasis on meeting the unique needs of USMC Force Recon this gear needs to be high performance, maneuverable, and able to withstand the rigorous demands of combat. This shotgun shell pouch is an essential component of this system and is not just a mere molle equipped shotgun shell pouch.

I bought two of these. First time I saw them they sold out. So I bought two when they came back. I used one on the Italian gun rig belt I also bought on ks. I went hiking on my ranch to track down some cattle from a neighbor that got on my land. I always take a rifle or shotgun with me on hikes out there. This pouch I filled up to the max. I didn't even notice it while hiking. It is a bit tough to get type last shells in as the space expands. While the price isn't too bad, you just need to buy one because these keep selling out. I also bought a 50 shell bandoleer from ks. This lets me carry nearly 100 shells with type two shotgun shell pouches if need be. The bandoleer is a rather secure hold, and no shells have slipped out yet.
This is one of the better pouches that I have seen and purchased. These are definitely high quality military issue. All the loops are elastic and high quality to tightly fit 12 GA 2-3/4' to 3" shells. The pouch adequately expands and has four Molle straps with snaps to secure it to your vest or to a waist belt. Well worth the $14.95 cost.
I bought two of these and will grab a couple more before they are gone. Holds 24 rounds of shotgun shells, four rows of six. Each round is held by an elastic loop. Great design as they don't roll around in the pouch or rattle against each other and you know exactly how many round remaining. The rear of the pouch has four molle straps that can be attached to a vest, operators gun belt or you can loop a standard belt through the molle straps. Thanks KS!
