These are over a period of eight years and three police agencies with different equipment requirements, in my defense.

The stuff that matters never moves. Pistol, reloads, and radio remain in the same locations. Support stuff has moved around but its been an evolution of efficiency, weight savings and weight distribution.

I was in a fight a while back and reached for handcuffs on my kidney and realized they weren't there anymore. A quick flash in my brain said hey up front and I found them. Cost me a half second, but I guess its happened. In this instance though there was simply nothing there.
Someone brought that up at a shooting I was involved in. I said he should have stopped. They said "what about Garner v. Tennessee."? I told them, " his name ain't Garner and we ain't in Tennessee!"
