I am happy to win one new important practical shotgun competition – Ukraine Shotgun Open. 12 stages (2 slug stages, 1 buckshot and 9 birdshot), 147 shots in total. My Remington 870 modified for Dynamic Shooting Sport worked perfectly!
There were several articles about special rigs for Load-2 and Load-4 loading:
And now I am happy to review one more rig for Load-2 and Load-4, this time from Magload. This company has a lot of interesting and high-quality products.
For more than 3 months, I have tested this rig during cold and rainy weather conditions and it has worked great! I have tested it for both strong and weak hand loading. It holds shotshells reliably, but you can easily grab them too. There are also interesting add-ons available, such as double magnet GRIP tops and spring spacers which are used for adding more spring tension. The rig still works perfectly fine without these add-ons, but it is good to know that you can make a custom order for additional features if you want them.
When you are using a shotgun in IPSC or 3-Gun competitions, you’ll only have a matter of seconds to grab more shotshells and load them into the magazine of your shotgun. I even remember old times when we were using caddies to do that. Fast time for loading 8 rounds and making first shot was about 6.5 seconds. Now good time is less than 3 seconds.
Now you may have an old rig but these typically hold shotshells in plastic holders and have to be adjusted to different length shotshells. Fortunately, IPSC shotgun is developing fast and we see new and new products each year. This review is about new EZLOAD NXTGEN Rig.

As you know, I have a new Remington 870 Combo and fired about 11000 rounds through it during this year. I use it for practical shooting (IPSC) which means that I need extremely reliable and fast shotgun. Each tenth of a second means a lot!
So, let me start my story about the Remington 870 “Practical”.
Remington 870 is a very reliable and flexible shotgun. This year I am using it in practical shooting competitions. Here is video with 10 stages from recent IPSC competition.
Here are some awesome pictures of me and my new Remington 870. Thanks to Anzhe Veter for them.
My name is Norbert, I am a French IPSC handgun shooter but beginner in the practical shotgun area.
As a newbie, I was obviously looking for some equipment…
This is the first article about load-4 belts for Practical Shooting (IPSC, 3-Gun, USPSA). It is going to be interesting for competitive shooters.
I asked owners or people close to the companies to tell about their products. Let’s start with 3 popular belts: King Competition Products, EZload and Z-Gun. I have sent requests to Invictus and Safariland, waiting for their answers.

Practical shotgun shooting is a very interesting sport. There are many types of the competitions you can take part in. Some shooters prefer to use Remington 870. First of all, they need to make Remington 870 Modification for More Reliable Fast Shooting. This modification enables you to shoot as fast as possible.
Then you need to polish and modify loading port.
