well, it takes a while to put my pods back in my pouches after i reload.
reason i put them back- 6 dye locklids. they aren't cheap and i don't want to loose them or someone take them.
what should i do with them? all i can think of is putting them back, but when it takes too long. i could miss a good kill or something. what should i do?

In speedball you can just drop them and pick them up later, but in scenario/woods they are pretty much gone if you drop them (unless it is a private field that you think would be easy to find your pod in).

Scribing your name on a Pod would actually be much better, because no one can never deny that the Pods are yours, since your name has been scribed onto them.

Problem is you have to go FIND the person who took the pod, and if they dropped it in a gear bag already its gone...

That's what I do when I need to get them back in and I don't want to miss a shot. It's really only necessary to try to get them back in if you're playing scenario/woodsball on a public course. In speedball and outlaw it's usually not hard to just toss them and then grab them after the game.

Never liked locklids...

I had a pack back when I played semi that I could stick pods back into easily. It just wasn't tight on the pods.

If you have an opportunity, drop the pod take the shot and then put the pod back after. I use lid locks and have enver been shot nputting one back..

yeah I think your biggest problem is that you're using Lock Lids. Don't get me wrong, I love those pods, but many packs (mine included) aren't designed for Lock Lids, which are just big enough to make re-harnessing your pods a pain in the butt. I would suggest either using a different type of pod, getting a new pack, or like others have said, PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE.

I usually just put them back and shoot 1 handed. But on a speedball field I just toss them. I have experiance with locklids and regular pods. I dont mind eather each have their pros. With the locklids I can just get them in the pack and they will stay there since they are alittle wider than regular pods. Regular pods are easier to slip in and I just have to strap them back in so they stay put.
