There isn’t much to say about a simple pouch that also holds four shotgun shells. If you are a breacher, or work with breachers then you know how difficult it is to have enough shotgun rounds for clearing a large structure. I usually maintained three in the weapon, 8 on my kit, and would still have to get rounds from other guys on my cell as we cleared through. I was always in search of different ways to carry more rounds that still fit with my kit. Most shell holders take up a large stretch of webbing and take away from your valuable kit space, the Single Mag Shotgun Pouch from United States Tactical decided to fix that issue. Their cost is a very reasonable $16.99.
Using 4” elastic webbing for the mag pouch my PMAG was held secure even while sprinting, climbing, and one instance of falling. The four shells are held in place by 1” webbing loops that are perfect for an assortment of other gear as well.I loaned this pouch to an old 18B (weapons sergeant) of mine during a sniper competition and he used the pouch for his quick mag as well as using the 1” loops to hold his camo sticks. If you mount two of these pouches next to each other, you can hold two magazines and run chem lights between them. This all-purpose pouch is only limited by your imagination.
This pouch fits securely to any MOLLE webbing and uses a shaped MOLLE clip, which kept the pouch from moving or sliding. The elastic, during our short testing, held its elasticity but I cannot vouch for the long-term use of it. At this price point if I was able to get a full deployment out of the pouch I would be happy. The stitching is solid without fraying appearing during testing and the pouch securely held a PMAG though inserting the PMAG took a little effort.
I was able to fit (jam) a Harris 152A radio into the pouch but with the long whip it did not feel secured enough to run with. A smaller push to talk radio or scanner would be able to be securely held in this pouch without an issue.
After doing a short review, I would recommend this pouch to anyone looking for an all-purpose pouch that can hold four additional shells or an assortment of things. The quality of construction, the price point, and the versatility of this pouch makes it something to have because you will find a use or it one way or another.
