We are mandated to carry plain black leather or leather style.

Top, set up for a Sig 220RDAK, which is my main carry. Holster is 070 / SSIII which is a personal choice. Issue is a Top Gun / 200.

Bottom, set up for a Glock 19, which is generally my backup gun, but which I carry as a primary to court and to special details.

Of note (maybe, if anyone cares):

Both belts are set up with the same gear in the same places, same holster for the same draw so there is no confusion with the muscle memory.

I try to keep my gear as streamlined and minimal as possible, only the stuff I need out there so as to save on weight and size. Weight is the reason I deleted a cuff case from the Glock's belt, since that belt is used when I am on my feet a lot (special details). I also like the appearance of a well sorted out and minimal belt.

We may not carry Tasers.

I recently deleted my ASP since I rarely use it, and I always carry an aluminum Streamlight which serves as an impact weapon if need be.

I carry my keys in my pocket to save on belt space and prevent jingling.

I've only seen a few coppers that carry open top mag cases, and never anyone that carries it where I do, but I like it there (over left hip). Fastest reload there is, and I carry my off duty mag there, too, so again the muscle memory is the same.

Good idea with the similar setups, but why the disparate weapons then? A Sig is still not going to feel the same as a Glock even if it is the DAK version. Why not go with the G17 for the work rig and G19 for your "court" or special appearances where you think you won't need it. The capacity of the Sig in any event does not exceed that of the G19.

I don't get it... it's kinda like having a HK USP DAO Compact rig with your G19 rig, but maybe that's just me.

Cause I like them both so much I just can't choose...

I used to carry the 17 for duty, went to the Sig because it just handles and shoots so well, and with the punch of the .45. They are similar, grip angle is about the only tactile difference. For normal duty work the Sig is in the duty holser, Glock is on the ankle.

As far as capacity, I also carry 6 more mags in a active shooter kit, but only for the Sig.

Thank you sir.

Bought a new stand last week.

Why do you need a stand for that bike? You can hold it up with 2 fingers, eh?

Get a Pitbull stand if you're gonna get a stand!

Did you put pipes on that bad boy? I heard one the other day, not sure of the brand but man it sounded good. Almost as good as my Ducati... well... not really, but pretty good for a Japanese small twin.

Wow, quite a bit more open top mag carriers than I expected. Maybe it's just a SoCal thing but all of our mag carriers are closed. Haven't seen any open ones for duty belts here.

Is it your policy?

When I was coming through the academy, I asked about carrying open top and was shot down.

To be honest, there is no policy on mag carriers currently but I don't think anyone here even carries it in any of the stores that I have seen. I know most departments do have policies on what type of mag carrier is allowed. In the academy, the gear was specific though and it did say snap type mag carrier.

There might be some departments that allow it but I haven't seen it.

Velcro is a bit better. If you wear nylon you can carefully apply some heat and bend the lip of the flap up. Carefully is key, b/c I melted one set of pouches. Once the lip is bent you can catch it with the back/base of the thumb on the way up, allowing you to draw with one motion.

Never did like Velcro, wears out a lot faster than snaps. I pretty much have snaps on everything I carry, except for the holster. The snap also is more positive on release since I have had a few times where I release the velcro and it falls back and engages again. Not a big problem, just a bit annoying.

Hey eh... Lenny, keep your home business to yourself...

I found a high rate of failure with the flashlight holders and other more mundane items which were velcro'ed. I'd rather just have them all snaps instead so I have them all in common.

Pitbull... $179

This stand... $110 with spools.

I have an Area P header, HR1 can, K&N, Fender Eliminator Kit, HIDs and some other doodads waiting to go on. Its 29 degrees here and I had 33 accident calls at work in two hours last night.

It can wait.

I think it was Area P... don't they also make cans? Man it sounded nice.

As for 29F last night there? Pshhhh... that's nothing, try 45F here! I think there was also at least 1 accident... okay fine... I spent part of the night rearranging my tie collection.

Did you get a front stand yet?

They do make cans, but I opted for a lower mounted one in black. The HR1 is also much louder.

No front stand yet. It's on the list, along with one of these...

Oh man, I am so getting me one of those 360 rotators for my garage. With as many bikes as I got in there, I need one to help me move all of them around. I was really toying with the idea of having a big lazy susan cut into the middle of it so I can just rotate them around and deploy them 1 at a time instead of having them all parked in a linear fashion which is a pain to deploy.

What are you doing up? Shouldn't you be resting from last night?
