gear up

In an extreme survival situation where the appropriate amount of ammunition for the type of firearm you’re carrying can’t necessarily be guaranteed, what would you do? Carry multiple types of firearms to increase your chances of coming across ammo you can use? You could do that, or you could have an adapter system that comes in a handy pouch that allows one 12-gauge shotgun to take 11 different types of ammunition.

The creator of Gear Up’s X Caliber Shotgun Gauge Adapter System, Tim Ralston, told TheBlaze it’s like carrying 11 guns in one.

“It’s my version of the ultimate survival rifle,” Ralston said, pointing out how useful an adapter system that couples with a single shot, break action shotgun would be as ammunition might become harder to purchase or in a desperate situation.

The X Caliber adapter system was recently unveiled in late November 2012 and the first shipment of pre-orders is coming in now, Ralston said. Showing it off as a drawing at a show, Ralston said he got 300 pre-orders just from there.

“I said, ‘I don’t even know how much it costs yet’ and they said ‘I don’t care,’” Ralston recounted to us. “With this system, you can pick the right ammo for the right time.”

It is composed of eight adapters that allow the 12-gauge to shoot 11 different caliber rounds. The adapters are each 7-inches long and made from chromoly steel.
