Thats very impressive. Most people take a lot longer to master that. I usually wind up with at least one shell up my left nostril when it slips :)

Thanks, the only draw back is i have to buy new carriers yet again. ive gone from practicing weakhand load 3s, to strong hand deuces, and now quad loads in 2 months lol

Well done!
Personally I struggle with grabbing them properly in the first place; I highly suggest borrowing a belt setup to try out. Doubles I can do on the clock no problem, I definitely need more practice before trying quads at a match. It sure is slick when it works though!

i just tried grabbing them while horizontal from my buddies ap quad 8 today, and its a nice set up i might get one. Its got alot of room to get my mits in there and grab them. i have a taccom load 6 for deuces that i was practicing on my belt just before trying the quad, i tried to put 4 in my hands last year and thought i would never be able to, but i decided to just ram them in there lol. My thumb is sore today after doing about 100 of them, i actually got faster :) once i get my own load 4 carriers ill try practicing with them on the move, forwards, backwards, and side to side.

Hey - i invested a pretty reasonable amount of money on scotch to specifically forget that part! (gotta back that follower spring off a little on the weatherby - thing shoot's 'em back like an RPG if you slip...)

I give up what are you actually trying to do. I am thinking your trying to load 4 shells at a time. When a shotgun hold 3 at most beats me .

Wut?

virtually all pumps are capable of a minimum of 4 (except for super shortys) some are plugged for hunting but it's 2 seconds to pop the plug out.

did you think that all shotguns are plugged permanently? :)

I love my AP Custom, holds the shells even when I scramble around in 3gun, but I will say that the screws started to rust after shooting in the rain. I assumed a fancy black coating on them for the price. G96 seems to have cured that, but just an FYI.

kool, looks dont bother me too much. i rather look like crap and shoot good then look good and shoot like crap. However looking good and shooting good would be nice.

What would you hunt with it once you took the plug out is my question. I have several pumps and by law they have to be plugged for 3 shots to hunt with except for one which is made to hold only 2 shots in the mag and one in the chamber. I would hate to be caught with a unplugged shotgun.

Who said anything about hunting?

As long as you are not hunting the 3-round max does not matter as that is a conservation law not a firearms law. Manual shotguns (pumps) can hold as many as you like and semi-autos are limited to 5 of the largest shell the gun is made to hold. So if it is a 3 1/5" semi you can have it fit 7 X 2 3/4" shells and 6 X 2 3/4" in a 3" gun as long as you cannot fit the 6th 3.5 or 3".

You woulnd't hunt with it. you'd use it for fun and 3-gun matches and the zombie apocalypse. And no - they absoutely DO NOT have to be plugged by law. The only time they have to be plugged is if you're hunting, and not ALL hunting - you can hunt with an unplugged shotgun in BC if you're using slugs for big game for example.

LOL - yes, yes you can. And in your case, it's probably cheaper than regular therapy :) :)

Tho it also does show how pointless 'mag cap' laws are.

if you used 000 buck 2 3/4 shells, thats 8 .38 caliber balls per shell times 9 is 63 .38 caliber projectiles coming out in a couple seconds for the zombies and such :)

My shotgun holds 11 in the magazine and 1 in the chamber. Party on!
