I did something similar, with Velcro.  I already have a couple of the old "Mad Dog Labs" 2 round kydex belt shell holders, that have come in handy primarily for teaching, with dummy rounds. 

On my recent build of a 14" 870, I was trying to keep bulk and extras to a minimum, and I had previously ordered about half a dozen 7 round Velcro "shell cards" from Midway, with elastic loops.  (about 9 bucks apiece)   Like the similar SOE shell cards, and some others, they have the prickly half of the Velcro on the back.  I sacrificed one, and cut it, losing one of the loops in the process, and after trimming now have a 2 round and a 4 round set of loops, primarily for slugs, that I can slap onto a Velcro patch on the right side of the stock,  when required, in addition to the shells on the left side of the receiver.   With the 14" police barrel I got from JD, and Federal "Flite Control" buckshot, I have extended my use of buckshot out to about 30 yds or more (amazingly tight patterns) so I don't anticipate needing slugs much anymore.  (I still train LE people on occasion, but since I'm now retired from that job, my use will now be mostly home defense.)   

My other frequent-use shotguns now also wear a simple Velcro patch on left receiver and right stock, and a simple short Magpul rail section bolted to the left side of the fore ends at about 10 o'clock for interchangeable attachment of shell holders and and inforce light between guns.   I don't like the Magpul  fore ends, so I just bolted their 5 slot rail to the standard factory police composite fore ends.  Much less bulk and much cleaner looking.   Just drill two 1/8 " holes at 10 o'clock and the rail mounts with two sturdy screws that bite into the plastic and hold well.  I found that the Inforce light at that position is also out of the way, non-bulky, and right in line with your left thumb on the fore end.   I'll send photos when I finally figure out how to send them from my phone to this page!  :-)  By the way I'm also thinking about changing back to wooden furniture.  I just like the looks.    (any advice on the photo transfer is welcome, as I can do photos from my computer, but not from my phone yet. Ha!)

A couple of pictures in natural light, to show the truer colors of the wood furniture.

This is the Beartooth Sideshell holder. One extra round and a light, or two extra rounds. Velcro’s on and off. No permanent alterations.

Option 2. I’ll have to time from pick up to first shot at home with dummy rounds and at the range live. I’d like to know how the weight and balance affects speed and accuracy of the critical first shot. Hope I’m not overthinking this. 🤓

Let us know how they perform. I like the sock on the buttstock myself.  I poke a hole and let the sling swivel stud hold it on.
