Blackhawk! Pro Shooter’s Forearm Sleeve

Blackhawk ShooterSleeve

Blakchawk! is making a forearm sleeve for shotgunners that puts extra shells closer to the receiver. Blackhawk! claims this sleeve is “…designed for quick and efficient shotgun reloads.”

The sleeves hold up to eight shells in 1″ elastic loops and can be had is black or coyote tan.  The sleeve is held to the shooter’s forearm by the use of three Velcro-like
elastic straps that are adjustable to fit different size arms.  Without any shells, the forearm sleeve weighs four ounces.

This sleeve is an alternative, or could be a supplement, to other styles of carrying extra shotgun ammo.  Many people have an elastic buttstock sleeve or receiver-mounted carrier that will hold five or six additional shells.

MSRP is $24.99.

    Took somebody long enough to capitalize this idea

  • High speed low drag

    I’m sure 3-Gun shooters have been using these for a long time in the US too, right? I bough my first one in 2008, it was made by a Russian company.

    Why do they have it on the wrong arm?

  • 2Wheels

    There was a similar product meant to hold 12g CO2 cartridges for stock class paintballers back in the days that I played. For those unfamiliar with SC paintball, I’m not explaining it for you when you have google…

    Anyways, I didn’t like it. It just bothered me. Too loose and it’s sliding around, too tight and it’s uncomfortable. The weight was a little annoying. I prefer to keep my reloads (whether paintball or real guns) on a chest rig or belt.

    I’ve had a black one of these (Blackhawk brand) for about 5 years, they’re not new. Use it in 3-gun. For a while it was a primary method of loading, then I learned faster methods (weak hand) and now it’s just for those occasions when I may need more than I can carry in belt caddies. Summary: works very well, easy for beginers, but you’re not going to win any major matches with it. Oh, and it’s not on the wrong arm. Top picture is exactly how I use it. Inside weak hand forearm, primers facing down.

    A pait of these, Ithaca 37 and ambidextriosity and you would have something cool(when left sleeve is empty change to left handed grip and continue shooting/reloading.

    Joe Biden’s wife might need this after she goes through her first two warning shots.

    Glad they made this. I used to use my buttstock shell holder which actually worked okay but I constantly had to readjust.
