Methods of carrying first strikes Breech Loading

For those that breech load, either the SR1 or Trracer how do you carry the first strikes for easy reloading? I know the SR1 has the shells but ill be using the trracer. I saw one guy using a small pouch that he attached to his scope and so far that seems like a good option. I was thinking of using a shotgun shell holder but im concerned that the first strikes will either be too hard to get out or fall out if i need to run. Is there anything on the market that works well? My only other idea is to carry a small case that I could mount to the gun some how that can flip open easily to allow first strike retrieval and then close easy/securly for when i need to bug out.

Let me know how you all have been doing it and what works for you.

Ten round tubes hold 13 First Strikes rather nicely. A simple stock class setup is perfect for this.

Difficult question. If the pouch is half as youve been taking shots from it. Running around may causr the rounds to bang amongst eachother chipping the fins potentially. This is why i dont single shot any more. But if i did
Id use something like a 40mm grenade pouch. And than something like a orbitz gum car cup with the lid unscrewed
And i would line the inside of the cop with foam or some other padding

Yeah that will likely be my fall back plan. I just am looking for something faster that wont require flipping a lid off each time and or dropping FS's on the ground. Ive been toying with the idea of a first strike shaped vertical tube that has a small catch on the bottom that will release one first strike into my hand when i trip the mechanism. Kinda like how the mag fed markers have that little bar on the magazine tops that keep them in place when out of the marker. I could probabaly make it about 5 or 6 rounds high and mounted near the breech. Ever since I got into paintball ive been dreaming of having my own machine shop just so I can make all the **** I want.

The orbitz cup may work...ill foam up what ever im using to protect the rounds. I have access to some wood working tools so i may try to make a first strike tube like pez dispenser thing and see if it works. A TPX first strike modded mag may work also...just mount it to the side of the gun and flick the lever over to pop out a round.

I have always loved a vest because of the torso support. I'm getting older by the day and need all the support I can get



Although breech loading with a locked shell is much quicker my goal is to become extremely proficient with the shells. I just can't get over how much fun they are to use. I'm using DBD 10 rd tube patches for shells and 12 grams. On the right side I have a dump pouch for the shells. Because of the way I have it set up I can fluidly swap shells with my right hand while holding the SR-1 with the left.
