Picked up a Condor Outdoor 25 shell reload pouch this afternoon...

Image

Image

Image

Shotgun Reload Pouch

Specs:

- Fits 25 shells
- Hook & Loop plus snap closure
- Size : 8" H x 4" W x 1 1/2" D
- Available Colors : O.D., Black, Tan, ACU

... and A-TACS...

Image

The pouch is MOLLE compatable and can be easily attached to a tactical vest or drop-leg platform. It's very well made and fells like it'll be able to take some abuse. I've seen these on-line from $25-$30, but I picked this one up locally for $15.99. I'll post up some actual pics when I get a chance.

Picked up a Condor drop-leg platform for use with the reload pouch. Also picked up one of their Sidekick MOLLE pouches and a hydration pack with a 2.5 liter bladder. The hydration pack is MOLLE compatable but also has a set of straps so it can be worn by itself.

Ordered a Condor Cross-draw Tac vest with the works. It'll hold a pistol and five mags, three AR mags, and has an additional pouch for whatever else I need to carry. Once it arrives, I'll attach the hydration pack to the back. The vest comes with an attached belt for use with my drop-leg rigs. It's gonna be a nice set-up. I'll be sure to post up pics once everything arrives and I get it all put together....

I posted this one up in the Magnum Research thread a couple weeks ago. Picked up this drop-leg rig for my Desert Eagle MK VII. Cost me $25 and easily fits the enourmous MK VII and oversized mags...

It's fully adjustable and will fit nearly any mid to full-sized handgun even with a light attached...

My Condor Cross-Draw Vest arrived this week!

Image

Image

This thing is SOLID. It's got a ton of adjustment for a fully customizeable fit. Cinched up a few straps and it fits like it was made for me. I loaded it up with three full AR mags, six full pistol mags, a 1911, and the hydration pack + tool pouch. Even with all the added weight it was still very comfortable. I doubt I'll be running any marathons in it, but it doesn't limit my range of motion at all. I'm still waiting on a few more pieces to complete the rig and I'll get some pics up when I get it all put together.

Picked up a couple more MOLLE pouches today. One was a second 25rd reload pouch for the drop-leg rig and the other was this 12rd Shotshell Pouch I got for $9.95...

Image

The internal elastic webbing holds a dozen shells firmly in place and ready for a quick reload...

Image

The pouch can be easily attached to MOLLE webbing or to a belt...

Image

Shotgun Ammo Pouch

With this new 12rd pouch riding on my belt, plus the two 25rd reload pouches, I'll be able to carry up to 62 extra shells at the ready.

Also replaced the holster on the vest. I wasn't happy with the plastic clasp retention on the that came with it. The clasp was hard to open and the strap was always in the way, making the draw very slow and awkward. Swapped it out for the 1911 Ambidextrous model that I picked up today for $19.95...

Image

Image

1911 Ambidextrous Holster

Description :

- Modular design for left or right hand.
- Retention system with secondary elastic cord to secure weapon.
- One single pistol mag pouch included
- Three different models for 1911, Beretta, Glock or similar pistols.
- Each holster comes with two removable MOLLE straps.

The single snap closure on this one is perfect and the straps stay clear of the pistol making the draw super smoothe. I like it a LOT better than the one that came on the vest.
