The TactaLoad™ stock is hands down the fastest
practical reloading application available!
With 24 years of Law Enforcement experience, 12 of those as a firearms instructor, I was frustrated with what was available for the pump shotguns we carried. The reloading systems we used were cumbersome, unreliable, difficult to teach, and even harder for my shooters to master. I needed a way for shooters to reload a shotgun without removing it from a shooting position, or without losing their sight picture. It also had to be based on gross motor movements that wouldn't get lost under stress. It needed to be ambidextrous for my left handed shooters, and easy enough to use for every size of shooter.
After years of prototyping, testing, testing and more testing with shooters from all different backgrounds and disciplines, such as active and separated military personnel, active and separated law enforcement personnel, competition shooters, hunters, recreational shooters, and even some non-shooters, the TactaLoad™ stock was born!
Knowing this stock will likely be in the hands of our nation's finest men and women, my requirements were that it be completely reliable, safe, and, of course, fast. We hit our mark perfectly! The TactaLoad™ stock is made from the latest cutting edge composite material to withstand the rigors of daily abuse, and the internal springs are rated for hundreds of thousands of cycles. The design is such that it capitalizes on the body's natural movements, and the safety retainer ensures that ammunition is always protected.
To retrieve ammunition from the TactaLoad™ stock, you merely pull the round out and push it into either the chamber or the magazine. Because you're grabbing the round by the brass end, you can't accidentally load it backwards into the shotgun. Also, because you're grabbing it by the brass lip, wearing gloves is no longer a hindrance to reloading; it works perfectly with or without gloves on.
Another issue I had with what was available to the pump shotgun market was practicality. Before I invented the TactaLoad™ stock, I was forever knocking shells off of my shotgun when placing it into a case or other storage device. Plus, the rounds over time would get dirty or wet. With the TactaLoad™ stock, the shells are safely protected inside the stock, cannot fall out under recoil or get accidently bumped off. When designing the stock, we chose the traditional style because it fit seamlessly into existing shotgun storage devices. The recoil pad on the TactaLoad™ stock is the same size as the industry standard size recoil pads found on shotguns today. The comb on the TactaLoad™ stock is specifically designed to fit your cheek better to minimize the common cheek slap experienced with most of today's gunstocks. During testing, I'd often get a comment from a shooter that my stock doesn't leave them with a bruised cheek, even after 100 rounds fired.
From Home Defense, to Law Enforcement, Military and the Sportsmen
I didn't want this gunstock to be exclusively for any particular shooting discipline, so I ensured that it would accept even the largest 12 gauge shells. There's a shell spacer inside the TactaLoad™ magazine that you remove if you're shooting the 3 ½ inch shells. Yes hunters, I'm talking to you! I'm also an avid bird hunter and often utilize the big shells for larger birds. The TactaLoad™ stock is perfect for bird hunters because we're often restricted by law to only three rounds inside the shotgun. I don't know about you, but when I'm hunting, three rounds go quickly when birds are in the air! With the TactaLoad™ stock, you can get a few more shots off before the birds are gone. Plus, with the TactaLoad™ stock, you don't have to remove your gloves in a freezing cold blind just to reload your shotgun. Your extra ammo will stay dry and clean inside the stock, no matter the weather conditions.
So whatever your shooting discipline is, if you want more performance out of your shotgun and need to reload fast, The Tactaload™ stock was made just for you!

Frequently Asked Questions
1. What's the Length of Pull on this stock and can it be adjusted?
The TactaLoad™ gunstock is the standard 13 ½ inch LOP, but we do have future plans to offer spacers to increase the LOP, as well as a flat composite butt plate for shooters who don't require a recoil pad due to wearing thick gear. This butt plate makes the LOP 12 ½ inches.
2. Will this stock fit my 20g Remington or Mossberg shotgun?
The TactaLoad™ gunstock is specifically designed for the 12g model shotgun. However, we did successfully attach it to a 20g Mossberg 600. The 20g Mossberg receiver was slightly narrower than the 12g so the stock is wider than the receiver (but yes, it did bolt on AND fit a total of six 20g shells inside the magazine). The new Remington 20g 870's have a different mounting design so the TactaLoad™ stock will not fit them (we've heard rumors that the old version Remington 20g 870's will fit but we have not verified that).
3. I have a different shotgun model than the Mossberg 500 or Remington 800 series', will you be making a TactaLoad™ stock for mine as well?
At this time, we do not have any plans to expand into additional shotgun models unless we receive enough inquiries concerning a particular model of interest to justify the significant investment in equipment to produce the stock for another model shotgun.
4. Can I use the TactaLoad stock on a semi-automatic shotgun?
No, due to the action spring normally located inside a semi-auto shotgun's gunstock, the TactaLoad stock cannot be used.
5. How much faster is the TactaLoad stock compared to side saddles and other gun mounted shell carriers?
In our research and development stage, we had numerous shooters from all different shooting disciplines shoot five rounds from the reloading platform of their choice and then shoot five rounds from the TactaLoad™ stock. Generally, we found our stock was 30% faster while reloading - and that was with limited practice using the TactaLoad™ stock. Once a shooter becomes more familiar with the stock, the speed continues to increase.
