Gunner’s Mate 12-Gauge Shotgun Shell Dispenser on IndieGoGo

    A nifty shotgun shell dispenser in the same vein as the F.A.S.T. magazine system is looking for funding on IndieGoGo. The Gunner’s Mate is designed by Todd Luebke, a veteran of the U.S. Army and owner of Strike Hard Gear, which focuses on Com-Bloc weaponry.

    The AmmoBoss Gunner’s Mate is a polymer spring-powered 12-guage shell dispenser that holds reloads in the same position relative to the hand. The polymer pack is a double-stack design that holds 8, 2 3/4″ shells.

    The Gunner’s Mate promises to ease retention and reloading. The video shows the concept in operation and details the steps the inventor has made to bring it to its current point. Based on the video, it looks like the design is complete and partners are lined-up for production.


    What do you think of the concept? Worth an estimated $50 price at retail if it goes into production?
