I believe that specific belt came from Europe. Cold can tell you- since he was the one wearing and demonstrating it!

Carbon Arms also makes something similiar. http://www.carbonarms.us/TWinS-Shotgun-Loading-Systems

^^^ Played with the system this weekend and I'm plus and minus about it. It's easier than learning to load one at a time, but loading weak hand/strong hand with 3-4 rounds, to me, is faster and more versatile. That said, for a match like the Ironman, I'd definitely use the TWINS system.

I think Patrick Kelley said it best- "It's nice if you're the kind of guy that wears vests; which I'm not."

I can see benefits, but I've put too much time in weak hand loading to start something new. And I can do it blindfolded.

Hey there, I only wear that vest for dedicated shotgun matches, (IPSC Shotgun) and even then some stages I use caddies still. Here is the guys info where I got the belt from used in Season two episode one.

For multi gun its easy to learn to load with the load two. Matt Burkett shot tac optics at the IRONMAN this year using a system akin to the load two belt I use and had never loaded a shotgun (weak or strong hand) before. Its a simple system to pick up if your not interested in learning the weak hand reload, for example.

Good luck!
It starts with your head, then use your hands, if you try it in reverse, you don't even have a chance.

When there's lead in the air... there's hope in the heart.

That looks interesting, to put it mildly. Are there any instructions or video of how it works?

Cold did a demonstration on episode 1 of 3GN season 2 IIRC.

Here it is at speed being used in a match:

I'm hoping to try one out at the Montana Multigun at the end of the month.

The Carbon Arms vest is dirt simple to use.
I am not known for my fast loading ability but within 35 minutes (yes I timed it) of opening the package
I was loading 8 shells in under 6 seconds consistently. It is my fault for not practicing my shotgun loading
but the best I could manage loading weak hand (my normal method) was 6.5 seconds.

I have recently switched to grabbing only 3 shells at a time (weak hand) and my fumble factor as improved.

Like Cold, I may include using the vest for shotgun only events >>>( 2012 World Practical Shotgun Championship.)

While the vest system ain't cheap it will (IT WILL) put you on par with many of the better shotgun loaders with less
effort.

IPSC have just banned the use of any "chest rig" ................. seems its an image issue along with any Open detatchable mag over 10 rounds

Your still allowed a double stack "belt" like the CZ one .................. just make sure id does not ride up or your be DQ'd

You Americans are lucky you don have to put up with this nonsense & can shoot 3 gun matches .

So any of you looking to take part in the 2012 World Shoot ,read the new rules or just give it a miss like a lot of European shooters are.
