Stock class players: Who uses a shotgun belt?

As I (once again) convert back to stock class, I am looking at different tube-carrying options. I have always seen the simple shotgun shell belts, but never gave it much thought. I love to keep things simple, so I am now considering it.

So does anyone primarily use one of these belts? Pros? Cons?

Belts are good. Simple and cheap! Holds tubes well. I still have my first belt from 1994 or so? Big con for me was the tubes become a huge hard point to get shot on. Also the ones on your side can chafe when crouching and crawling.

I have one that I was considering using for paintball. I was thinking it would flap around too much when I run.

My main concern was the digging/chaffing. I may just go bandoleer with it!

shotgun belt is all I've ever had (so nothing to compare it to). holds the tubes well, keeps the tubes at the right level to grab and it keeps my 5.11 cargo pants up too. No real complaints about it. A more advanced belt/pack system may offer more cushioning and protection for the tubes and for myself from hits, at the cost of added weight and layers (a negative in triple digit tx heat).

I use the SG belt from time to time. I like pouches and use the APP cigar pouch. Carries 6-8 10rd tubes.

fit totally depends on body shape.

mine annoyed me for the mentioned reasons.
the waist models suck to use as a bandolier and the real ones move too much for me.

>thigh rig is the way to go!

I do.
No problem with chafing or flapping around.
Outstanding value considering you can buy 5 Allen shotgun belts for the price of one Ronin capless harness.

I used to use one, but recently switched to the PB Mafia capless wrist harness and just keeping 12 grams in my hip pocket because it's easier to crawl with without tearing the tops off tubes.
