I keep going back and forth on the pros/cons of velcro side saddle systems vs. more permanent fixed side saddles. Help me think through this and evaluate my thought process: 1. Permanent side saddles are fixed, solid, permanent. And they look good. 2. They require you to remove pins and so forth to use use them, thus they must be removed each time you strip the shotgun for cleaning (detailed). 3. They do only offer you an extra 6 -8 or so rounds, then they too must be reloaded. They seem therefore to limit your options. 1. Velcro systems permit you to affix the adhesive velcro in such a way that you can have full access to the take down pins, so that is not an issue. 2. They allow you to have as many rounds at the ready as you have holders for the shells, slap on a new one and go. 3. It would appear to be a more convenient way to have shells at the ready in any situation: from range use to real-world applications. If I go velcro, I'm going Esstac. In fact I have it all here, I finally got my shotgun in and am now just verifying my thinking before I install and apply. I'm going to do it very methodically, very careful degrease with a solution, followed by alcohol, before I put the velcro strip on. Thoughts?
