AmmoPal Shotshell Dispenser Now Shipping

AmmoPal, formerly known as the AmmoBoss, has announced it is now shipping its first units. The system is basically a MOLLE compatible polymer shell designed to hold up to 10 12 gauge shells for easy reloading.

The AmmPAL is manufactured from “Geon PVC” a durable “UV-resistance, oil resistance, flame resistant…” material. MOLLE adapters are likewise manufactured from the same material and easily mounted on any common PALS / MOLLE ladder system. The MOLLE mounts can be removed for storage or to use the system as a general ammo storage device.

The material is offered in three colors currently: tan, black, and OD. The spring is the same proven material as USGI magazines. AmmoPAL will hold the shells in any angle, including upside down. The thumb-sweep area is designed for gloved operation. Base plate features a drain hole and is easily removed for cleaning.

Sadly, the AmmoPAL is only for 2-3/4″ shells. (I’d like to see one for 3″, even if it means the shells rattle around a bit).

The AmmoPAL is made in the USA. They are available now for $39.95 direct from AmmoPAL. It comes with a 60 day money back guarantee.

CHAMPLIN, MINNESOTA, April 10, 2016 – The team at AmmoPal is thrilled to announce the official launch of their versatile shotgun shell dispensers. The first production run is in hand and pre-orders started shipping in April 7th 2016.

AmmoPal’s crowd funding contributors have already received their innovative shotgun shell dispensers and AmmoPals are now available for general purchase. AmmoPal is a unique shotgun shell dispenser that offers a viable solution for all shotgun owners, making it convenient and easy for shotgun owners to access 10 extra rounds via the durable dispenser.

With built-in retention fingers, shotgun owners can rest assured that their shells are secure even when upside-down. A wide thumb sweep area accommodates gloved use, and the AmmoPal shotgun shell dispenser is designed for either right or left-handed operation.

AmmoPal is a versatile shell carry solution that can be used by hunters, sport shooters, and tactical shooters, as well as by those who need a self-defense solution for easy, fast access to ammunition.

    This is.. okay I guess? But you’re still grabbing and loading one shell at a time, which is excruciatingly slow, and really not much of a progression from the nylon loops that have been used for a hundred years already.

    I would be much more interested if someone could make a more durable, protective version of the 3-gun type spring-loaded 3x and 4x loader caddies. Grabbing and loading 3 or 4 shells at a time is much faster and a clear improvement on old forms of shell carrying.

      unless its clay shooting the problem with shotgun comps is it’s really not about the shooting its all about reloading and when you start using things like speed loaders you really dull down the sport.

      • wartzilla

        I’m not even talking about speedloaders, I’m talking about grabbing four shells as a handful in your hand and loading them one at a time, using your thumb, not a speedloader.

  • Gregor

    Is there a video that shows an actual reload using the AmmoPal? It somehow doesnt look like it works fast – but maybe thats not what the AmmoPal was designed for in the first way.

    • Sianmink

      Doesn’t seem meant for 3-gun reloads and such, but it’s a lot better than a bunch of loose shells in your pouch or a box jammed into your vest for walking-around shooting and hunting.

      • RoyB

        Is it a lot better? a loose shells in a vest won’t rattle or eject all of you shells like a can of snake peanut brittle when those retention tabs snap off.

  • I have something like this for my rifle, except that I can actually PUT IT IN THE RIFLE and have it feed directly from it. Awesome, right?

    I was reading The World’s Fighting Shotguns by Swarengen last month, and this guy, back in like 1982, is describing the magical future where shotgun manufacturers will have figured out that detachable mags are the way to go for combat shotguns, and that someone will have solved the double stack mag problem, and we’ll all be rocking out high-cap shotgun magazines. Meanwhile, 30 years later, the only people giving us mag-fed shotguns are the Russians, Turks, and Chinese. The US military has still not adopted a mag-fed shotgun!

    I feel bad for the author. He had some good ideas, but few of them came to pass.

    • Jack Griffin

      We figured out the combat shotgun problem: it’s called a carbine.

      Shotguns are niche tools at best and mostly video game fantasy.

      • iksnilol

        To be fair though, a doublestack shotgun mag is possible (Look at PMR-30 magazine). Barring that, going for a belt fed would make the ammo much more compact than a drum magazine.

      • SF

        The US military has adopted and issued mag fed shotguns. they are under barrel mountable and straight pull actions. but their limited to being used as door breachers and un-officially PDWs. And the reason we haven’t issued more of them, is because its just a shotgun, not a very combat capable weapon. they are actual pretty lousy weapons to begin with, but much more useful as a “tool”
        If the US military wanted more mag fed shotguns, they would get them, but there isn’t really a point.

    • Southpaw89

      Not everything has to be tactical or designed for military use, as a hunter I can see the appeal of this. It holds rounds more securely than an elastic belt or a cardboard box, is more accessible than most pockets, and if its less than the pockets aren’t going to hold the rounds securely. Combine that with the fact that most hunting shotguns are tube fed or break action single of double barrels makes this potentially very useful. The only problem I really see is that I hunt almost exclusively with 3″ shells, so until that option comes out I wont likely be buying one.

      • iksnilol

        Why not just buy a Saiga 5 round mag or something? Would do the same thing.

        • gusto

          you can’y frekkin hunt with a saiga, yeah sure you could but should you?

          can we have a little bit of class?

          • iksnilol

            You don’t understand. You can use a Saiga mag as a shell holder whilst hunting with your “classy” shotgun instead of using the AmmoPal.

          • Shocked_and_Amazed✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            A little class please

  • ozzallos .

    So it’s a mag… For your hands.

  • Dr. Longfellow Buchenrad

    I wouldnt mind a slightly shorter 7 or 8 round version that you can attach to the side of the stock (or maybe even integrated in). Reaching to the exact same place to grab your shell each time makes you slightly faster.

  • SLi-Fox

    The weight of the device is probably equal or more than the total number of rounds it carries. A pouch large enough with some sort of quick secure opening to shove a hand in could carry many more times than this.

  • Gorilla Biscuit

    I invented an ON BODY TACTICAL SHOT SHELL HOLDER (OBTSSH). Just waiting for the patent to be finalized.

  • Anomanom

    Well, its better than a bunch of little elastic loops that are never quite elastic enough. And price is comparable to or better than Uncle Mikes 1×4 caddy.

  • Shocked_and_Amazed✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Nice idea. Never seen anything like this before.
