Looking to put a 5 or 6 round carrier on my old 37....is the butt stock the best place or should I go with one of the newer wazoo tactical jobbies that go over the reciever? Also, do some of these mess up the finish? I saw some on line that screw into the buttstock...not up for that...maybe just a good elastic sleeve will do the trick...but who makes a nice fitting one? Thanks

I've got 5 buckshot shells in one I bought at Academy. I think it's Koplin brand. It's held up in the field and in the house for a while with no noticeable loss of security - either around the buttstock or the shells.

If it is twelve guage I usally use a five gallon bucket. On a 410 I find that one of the large ice cream buckets work well.

What I'd like to find for the 37 is dual sidesaddles; the bottom eject leaves plenty of room, and this would allow me to keep different types of ammo separate in addition to the added capacity.

I have a side saddle on the receiver. Yes, it will scratch up your Gauge is you aren't careful, but my gauge is a working gun so I don't care if it's pretty, just functional and accurate. Mine hold 6 rounds.

For HD I use an elastic slip on, In the field I use a good quality vest so it doesnt add weight to the gun and in the duck blind I use skeet shooting waist pouch with a velcro flap.
