I don't know what works for 3 gun games and competition, but for general quick reloading, as a right hander, the side saddle on the left of the reciever is the best spot since your left hand is right down there to reload shells from the underside already.

I didn't like the stock mounted shell holder location as much, but it is a reasonably convienient place to keep 6 more. you just can't get them out and reloaded as quickly.

The fully tactical aspect of this hobby ( and I mean hobby since even swat teams make do with less than some of what I see here) interests me less and I prefer a straight plain jane stock and such, but the velcro 6-pack reciever strips are something I might look into. this could even be a viable hunting gizmo, but usually one already has some kind of vest or pouch belt for ammo.

you can rip off an empty strip and slap another 6 pack right on the reciever since , short of speed loader tubes, the reciever side is the best spot IMO.

looking at the link pics:

That is not as tactically sound as it could be. he should not load with his trigger hand. the bag of shells is ok, but he should put it on his left leg.

I guess it depends on how long and heavy your gun is.

come to think of it, may as well buy a $20 trap shooters bag and rip off the top of a box of shells and let it sit in the pocket. I bet you could strap on one of those full of ammo in the middle of the night faster than you could get the other gear together.

you can slam in a shell into the ejection port with your left hand from underneath cupping your palm so you don't drop it. basically slap the reciever with your fingers cupped around it and guide it in. sometimes it just flies right in. you need the short non-sporterized forgrip because wingmaster full forestock makes this harder. after the slap, your left is right at the front of the SG ready 2 pump.

if you put your right forearm over the stock (yes stock, pistol grippers) and keep your right hand near the trigger (sort of holding near the reciever or just the normal grip with finger near trigger), you can hold the weight. no way to do this with a pistol grip. the flip over loading would be best in that situation. even so, a right hader ought to load lefty so you have the stock end in your right hand at all times.

the foregrip is just inches away for the left hand to transition from shell loading to foregrip hold. I saw a demonstration of a shot while reloading. the inertia forced the shell in right away and bumped the left hand pretty much on the forestock pump for the next shot.

that is the way I was recently instructed... gun games may indeed have better methods since cardboard wont grab your gun away from you.

sorry no videos..

Cool, where did you learn it?

I'm still trying to grasp the concept. I am really having a hard time trying to picture right forearm over the stock.

Thanks for the info.
do you have a gun to practice with?

1) hold SG with left hand horizontally
2) grab stock (non pistol grip style) in the normal spot with right hand, but do not let stock sit between body and forearm as normally it would.
3) twist wrist a bit and put forearm on top of stock creating a leverage which will hold the gun up easily. remove left arm as SG is now easily supported at arms length if needed.

holding with the wrist only is too hard unless your SG is sawed off.
