Convenient shell holders stay attached to gun which is a must in case of emergency. You don't need these in separate places when emergencies arise!

      Safety is not an option. Do purchase what is needed. Do get the best, it actually costs less in the long run.

                Comments about Orion 12-Gauge High-Performance Alerter Basic 4-Signal Kit:

                This is one of those items you carry and hope you never have to use! While I was preparing my boat for launch a few weeks ago, I did a complete safety check (USCG Checklist). I noticed my flares were going to expire this fall. I did not want to take a chance so I purchased this particular flare gun as a backup and to ensure compliance/dependability. I am extremely safety oriented and this gave me peace of mind.
