OT - I have shot with them at a monthly match and the VA 2 day match in Raphine VA.

They get great style points!!  They are actually pretty easy to use - just keep the loops a little loose - so you can angle the shells out as you pull them out and most important - remeber to open the mckeever before you get to firing line - doing them one handed when they are new is next to impossile!!

Great comments from pards and pardettes while I was using them!

Pony Racer,

Were you able to get them top and bottom or just top?  Or did you need to alternate them to be able to close the box to work?

Just the top - if you did both top and bottom - you would need more leather to close the box.

I may cut a little leather away to make it easier to get shells out - but with loops being a little loose it is not to bad to angle them out.

Pony Racer,

What about putting a piece of leather behind them so it keeps the angle out better.

Old Top I have considered that.

I may see if my local shop has some throw away thick strips and try some new leather adhesive that a friend of mine swears by - just can't think of name of glueyt substance right now.

Not really needed - but will make pulling them out a TAD bit easier.

The biggest trick to them is remembering to open the latch before getting to stage.  On one stage I forgot and had to put shotgun back down on prop to open the McKeever up.  I am sure it will get smoother in time - but easier if you open before shooting.
