I also don't see the need for side saddle. I prefer a bandalere full of rounds that I can throw over my shoulder or clip around my waist, belt style. I do run a flash light/laser combo. I do this because I run red/green dot on my built 500. If I can't get the gun to my eye, I have a backup. I like a fore grip for added recoil control and help on the pump. Honestly I set up my 500 and my 30-30 spx exactly the same way for familiarity. But in argument for less is better, I also have a plain Jane 500. Just regular hardware from the factory. No sling. It's the sit in the corner of the closet special. Nothing like a plain, lightweight shottie for quick movement.
