PLEASE HELP! I'm trying to make a pointman for a LRRP team i'm working on. I have a Nam-Era pump 12 gauge, and i'm trying to think of a creative yet unique way to have the figure carry his shells. I have about 25 red and green shells, so yea, any ideas on custom work or part thats out there i could use would be greatly appreciated...

also any ideas on sidearms...i was thinking maybe an m3 greasegun or Ak folding stock, but unsure. maybe jsut a .45 colt automatic?

Possibly a private-purchase bandoleer, tho the Christmas colors would draw the eye of observers. Pockets and/or M1956 mag pouches would keep the shells in ready reach, w/o showing the bright colors.
There used to be a crusty shotshell holder sold back then, basically a black stretch tube that pulled over the buttstock, with loops on it.
The less on the outside to glint, rattle and catch on foilage, the better.

A 1911A1 or a private purchase revolver or automatic possibly, depending on the user's taste.

Something like what's in this? (2:45) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snkbewlsUVk

I'm thinking the shells in a bandoleer might stand out too much in the 'J' .. there were issued shotgun shell pouches but other references say that shotgunners would use whatever large capacity pouch was available eg. empty Claymore satchel or Universal Ammo pouch (such at that which came with the TS SEAL (Lazycat Exclusive))

You're welcome Irishjoe ..

The father of Alice-in-chain's lead guitarist, Jerry Cantrell, served with the 101st Airborne Division in Vietnam - the indigenous population referred to them as 'Rooster' men on account of their shoulder sleeve insignia. Strangely enough, the clip re-enacts troops from the 1st Cavalry Division!
