For what kind of use? Hunting, hiking, tactical classes or competition, skeet, end of the world?

It makes a difference on what I would recommend.

I have a shell holder on my shoulder sling. It's the one that Blackhawk produces. It holds 15 shells but can be heavy especially if you have a heavy shotgun.

There are slings made that holds shells.

If I ever felt the need for more than the 7 rounds I carry in the weapon, I think i'd get a bandoleer.
I didn't fight to defend your freedom so you could vote to take away mine.

I think the bandoleer would be the way to go if your wanting bookoo shells with you. Ive always been a country boy, i just stick 5 or 6 in my front pocket :-)

The slings that hold shells are a very bad idea -- they are impractical to use with only two hands and act as a pendulum as well as take the gun off balance making it both harder to aim and maneuver.

If you want ammo WITH the gun, a shotgun pouch you can put on your belt with it might be OK. A Poncho Villa bandolier you wear left-to-right might be OK if you don't have too run around. But I prefer to keep basic spare ammo on board, depending. A SpeedFeed +4 stock is great. Even a side-saddle might be the way to go. I have guns with both of the latter but they are more "defensive" in nature...

The best thing is a pair of pants or shorts with cargo pockets. A pair of army surplus bdu pants can hold a whole box of shells in the cargo pockets. I also have a 5 shell holder on my top folder but the best way to go is the cargo pockets.
