Is there anything one can use besides a vest that will provide
a little shoulder joint padding and keep the stock from grabbing
when you mount the gun?

Can anyone recommend a shell bag - the kind that snap around
the waist and hang off the hip- that is big enough to hold a competition's worth of shells but no more?

I'm afraid the grocery bags I've been using are beginning
to make people uncomftorable. :wink: :lol:

Two Browning products:

Their Reactor pad, which fits inside some of their clothes and vests. Costs about $15.

I use this Browning shell pouch and belt:

If you want to spend more money and get something that will last a long time, these are nice too:

Take a look at these links to MPC sports, a sponsor of this site.

Some people say the reactor pad does help, I've never tried one though.

You need to work on your pad to stop it from grabbing, if the heel isn't tapered off you can do that. There are products made to slick them up, slickeez is a product made by kickeez that is a lacquer/nail polish stuff that you put on. Some use electrical tape as well.

As far as carrying that many shells on your hip, believe me that is not what you want to do. In fact, I now use only a box container clip on for competition, but with just enough shells to shoot the station and put in what I need for the next station when I get there. I may only have 10-12 shells on me when shooting. Carrying all that adds to fatigue, lessen it as much as possible.

Get a range bag, or, I don't have any problem with you using a grocery bag to carry shells around the course. But I'm not one that cares how you are dressed or equipped, impress me with your score and enjoyment of the game----that's what matters.

Trash? Have you ever personally examined a Lonesome Charlie product? Have you ever experienced the level of customer support provide by Charlie and his family?

If you had, you would not use the word "trash" to describe his products.

In Charlie's case, you get what you pay for.

I agree completely with Scott (gasp), unless you have done business with Lonesome, and don't have any of his products you wouldn't make that statement. LC's stuff is quite often given as prizes and are always well sought after.

LC is also a contributor to youth shooting, leagues, and sponsors many shoots. I have two of his bags hanging in the trophy case, and they are worthy of the space taken up.

I also have a trap doubles bag that I won in the early 90's, I use it for 5 stand and doubles, but it gets used every time I shoot (once or twice a week) and it is as good today as it was when I first used it, absolute premium products!

Thanks for the links guys, I appreciate that :)

I've worn things on my hip before for long periods of time. I prefer it over anything hanging over my shoulders because
I'm more conscious of the restriction. It's just a personal
preference, I'm not saying it's better or anything. For all I know,
the preference could change in three months.
