What I Like About This Product:

I have been in the market for some type of Side Saddle for my Mossberg 500 Shotgun.  There are many different manufacturers that make them but one thing they all have in common, is they are very thick.  For that reason, I decided to try shotgun cards.

Here are my PROS for these ESSTAC shotgun cards: 

  1. These cards are much thinner then a traditional side saddle. 
  2. You do not have to modify the bolts on the shotgun’s receiver to hold them on. 
  3. They are held on using Velcro. 
  4. They come in 4, 5, 6, and 7 shotgun shell sizes. 
  5. They are easy to install. 
  6. They do not cover the serial number of my Mossberg 500 like the regular side saddles do.
  7. It is possible to remove an empty shotgun card and replace it with another full one.
  8. It is easy to preload the shotgun cards and have them in a bag or a pouch ready for use.
  9. If you decide you would rather not have the side saddle on your shotgun just peel it off and its gone.

What I Would Change About This Product:

I really like these shotgun cards and I have not found anything to change.

Final Remarks:

The ESSTAC Shotgun Card is an excellent product.  There are other places to order them from but I like going directly to the manufacturer.  Their customer service is excellent and they are great to deal with. The product is easy to install, and of the highest quality and the workmanship is great, it works great! I have a small messenger bag that contains 4 shotgun cards as my reserve ammo. I highly recommend this product!
