Here is review of the New Voodoo Tactical Shotgun Case from Chief Brody from Remington 870 Forum:

Hey guys, I wanted to show you a new soft case I just got from Midway. This is the Voodoo Tactical Enlarged Shotgun Case (Item no. 15-0083). After sitting on the fence for a while about ordering one, I am very impressed with the case. It is very sturdily built with 900D poly, large heavy duty zippers, lots of MOLLE, four shell pouches, another larger zippered pocket, more shell storage inside…Lots of well-thought out and nicely-executed features.

You will find some basic drills which you can do with your shotgun and timer to measure your progress.

All drills can be done from several load conditions:

1 – Chamber loaded, magazine loaded, safety on.

2 – Chamber empty, magazine loaded, safety off.

3 – Chamber empty, magazine empty, safety off.

Time of the first shot – shooting timer shows how fast you make first shot. It is very important to shoot fast and accurately. Start with your shotgun at a waist level. Try to shoot as fast as possible.

Load four shells and make a first shot –  this way you will see how fast you load 4 shells into your shotgun.

Load eight shells and make a first shot – shooting timer will show how fast you load eight shells.

Make two shots – shooting timer has special “split” time which shows how fast you do follow up shots.

Always keep record of your results, this will help you to see your progress.
