PS: Merry Christmas. I hope you're safe and warm, but spend a few moments thinking and praying for the men and women who are cold and a long way from home so you can have a good holiday!
You need to reload, you’re in the open and you need to cover some distance. The coast is, for the moment, clear but you need that gun at full capacity.
Me, I demount the gun, rotate it inward so the carrier is visible and place the butt stock upside down under my armpit and support the shotgun with the trigger hand. This is when you start stuffing shells in one at a time with your less dexterous fore-arm hand.
|It's a secure grip and i can see where I'm reloading as well as the ground i walking over and have the potential to scan for danger.|
The two point hold, hand and armpit, makes the shotgun more stable while I move. This orientation also points the muzzle downward. This works for both semi-auto and manual pump shotguns.
Remember, someone wants you DRT!
