A short video I did last night out of boredom. Constructive criticism and advice welcomed!

Good job on the video. You look well practice and the one round into the chamber looked real smooth.

If you were to have two rounds in your gun shoot one round then load four and then shoot 1 how long does that take you?

If you were to do the same drill but this time loading 8 how long would it take?

Thanks

Just curious, do most of you guys keep the shells in your side saddle with the brass up or down?

I obviously keep it brass down. I think that's the general consensus here too by the looks of that thread.

Great job Cable!

Dude, that Moss looks heavy on you. Does it seem so?

originally it was light. then came the knoxx stock, side saddle and forend, which doubled the weight. its a bit heavy holding it with one hand braced on my shoulder, but nothing practice wont fix.

Not a bad technique. I would say look at using a shell carrier though too.

Nice job! My shotgun is the same setup, minus the sidesaddle (didn't really want the excess weight) and plus a tac light w/pressure switch, but may get one just to try your technique. Looks very effective.

Wait until you have to poke the gun through a shooting port.
I know that probably does not happen at the square range you shoot at though. ;)

Then practice on shoot one, load four, shoot one.
That will be the most useful if you only hold 5.
