I use a half-belt holding 12 rounds in addition to some loops on the front plaquette (a double chape style like the Mexican one in Packing Iron) of my gunbelt. The loop portion can be run around to the back if you just want spares "because". But then again, I am no longer a gamer, even if I never was!

I usually wear one of my 25 rd Mills belts along with my web pistol belt. I move the sg shells to the front as they are used. However if I wear my forager belt as a holster belt that holds both sg and rifle rds I will use the 8 sg /3 pistol rd rig that I had made. As I've said before, a web belt is more comfortable than leather, it moves, bends and stretches with you. IMHO

Obviously very kind and thoughtful suggestions.   Kiss

There is however, one salient point.

One must remember to TAKE IT WITH YOU!!    Roll Eyes 

Arriving at the match and realizing the shotgun belt is hanging on a chair, 150 miles away .......................   Shocked

Not conducive to a Harmonious experience.    Tongue

Good thing I had a vest with POCKETS   Cool

Taking your pistol belt and holsters is also handy to do.

In a hopefully more helpful serious vein, I always lay out my kit on the kitchen table the night before. Holsters, hat, ammo, boots, firearms, coat, belts etc with a double check on the calibers of my guns and the correct ammo and anything else that I'm going to show or shoot during our lunch break. I've caught myself a couple of times with the wrong ammunition for the revolver that I'd chosen. I do color code my ammo boxes as best I can. Its been a very very long time since I forgot my rifle ammo.

If I could remember the checklist I wouldn't need it.
Several years ago I went to a two day match about forty miles from my home. I made a checklist so I wouldn't forget anything. On Saturday I looked at the checklist and brought everything I needed. On Sunday I forgot to look at the checklist. I'm almost there on Sunday and my cell phone rang. My wife asked if I needed those Saddle Bags packed with ammo and my Holster rig. She met me and I was able to shoot the Sunday match. Now I put my stuff out the night before. I still occasionally forget something.

By the way, attached is the Shotgun Belt I've been using for several years. Also attached are pictures of a Shotgun Belt I recently made for a fellow Shooter.

Coffinmaker,  I suggest you make a duplicate copy of your check list and give it to Dawg and have him call you the morning of the
match and have him go over it with you.  Have him call you so you don't forget  Roll Eyes

Forgot my leather at a couple of club matches.  Just a couple of weeks ago at EOT my buddy and I unloaded our stuff and were pushing our carts toward the stages to shoot a practice match.  We got a few yards from the truck and I said "something seems to be missing."  Ahh, it was my leather.  After being laughed at and rebuked by my pardner he realized he had also forgotten his leather!  Luckily our leather was in our RVs a few miles from EOT rather than back in Phoenix.  We had an early dinner and made sure to bring our leather the next day for a different warm-up.

Sooner or later you are going to forget something for a match. I finally did it-- and it was my hat!! Trouble was that it was sunny and 96 degrees and the top of my head lost its "covering" a long time ago. Roll Eyes Oh well, the match must go on!

Our local annual CAS match was about a month ago.  On Saturday morning, getting dressed to start, I found I didn't have my gun belt or my shotgun belt.  So I drove home - about a 1/2 hr. drive, to retrieve them.  I searched everywhere but to no avail...I could not find them.  So I went back to the match, used my pant's belt for a gunbelt for my .51 Navies, and put my shotgun shells in my vest pockets.  On one stage, I forgot to replenish the shot shells and lost a few seconds for that mistake.
Ater the match, and back in the shop, I found both belts hanging on the hook inside of my gun room door...right where I'd left them of course.  I made do at the match, but the panic of being without them put me way down the success list.
