How's it working out for you? The key for me was finding the perfect mounting spot for the alligator clip so that it kept proper tension on the coiled tube. You don't want it too tight or too loose. I wound up clipping it to the rear portion of my left vest shoulder strap (the elastic part that goes between the front and rear panels) and running the tube up my shoulder blade, up the back of my neck, and to my ear. That way I can move the clip up and down on the strap to adjust the tension as needed prior to putting on my vest. If that makes sense.

Pretty neat but they don't have anything compatible with the APX6000 yet.

Could not agree more. I good fitting earlpiece is well worth the $75 I paid for mine. I went to a local hearing aid place (then it was called Martin Audiology, now it's been bought out twice) and they sprayed some foam in my ear. Sent it off and a week later I had a custom molded clear earpiece. Wear it on 12's and I forget its there. I have some decent high frequency hearing loss from unprotected shooting and have trouble hearing a speaker mic, the earpiece is a Godsend.

If that triple mag holder comes in a covered flap version, I'd get it.

Ask and you shall receive. Safariland and Bianchi both sell it (all owned by BAE anyways).

I had never seen the Accumold version before. Too bad they don't appear to do an open top triple in the Accumold.

I think that aside from the advantage of the third magazine, I actually prefer the orientation with the toe "out". It still gives a good positive grasp, and is completely ambidextrous.

FWIW, the best price I have found on the STX open top triples is from Brownell's if you have their law enforcement discount and the 1911 triple is actually narrower than my Uncle Mike's quad.

Try GTDistributors here in Austin. Paid $21.95 for mine and Brownells has them for >$25. Thought it was odd too that Bianchi only offers them with flaps. Maybe give them a little time since it's still relatively new on the market. I find it very interesting how much of the LEO market BAE Systems sells to: Safariland, Bianchi, ABA...that about covers most officers' uniforms. Plus they build bombs

Brownell's with LE price is $20-$22 depending on the specific fit. Limited selection, though: 1911, Glock 17/22, Glock 20/21, and a couple of others in Fine-Tac. The doubles run about $18 from them.

Did you ever get your swivel stuff? I'm tempted...give me a reason to spend the feria on this piece of coolness and not on a birthday gift for my wife.

I haven't gotten around to the 6365 setup because I am not sure they have it for my gun combo yet. Last I checked, it was a long wait for it.

I have my old school swivel setup for the basketweave belt with my vintage Colt revolver though. That thing looks so cool.

For those of you who use the new Safariland mag pouches that orient the magazines with the rounds pointed out, what kind of grip do you use when reloading? This pouch doesn't really lend itself to the standard method of aligning your index finger along the front of the magazine.

I initially practiced doing it by aligning my index finger along the side of the magazine, and that worked OK. But I have since gone back to my old open top mag pouch (made by Don Hume) which orients the mags bullets-forward. In my opinion, having your index finger aligned along the side of the magazine makes for a very sloppy blind reload. If the finger is along the front of the mag, you can feel your way into the magwell much faster and easier, especially on a GLOCK which has a notch in the front.

To each his own though. I love the new pouches but if I can't get the reload down perfectly every time, I'm going to go back to the tried and true method (and have). It's just not worth it for 0.5" of saved belt space.

I actually prefer the orientation of the slim-lines...I basically turn my regular grip 90 degrees to put my index finger down the front strap. What I like about the change is that it works the same way with both hands.

I see you just have your hand with your palm facing inward so your index finger is pointed down like how a baseball catcher does his secret signals to the pitcher. Then you can just grab your mags with your index finger right on the outside aligned with the front of the magazine.

Maybe you guys are built differently than me but I doubt it. It is impossible for me to contort the wrist into this position and still effectively grab the magazine...especially under stress. I'd shoot video if I could. With the mag pouch mounted at about 9:30, it cannot be done. With it mounted further forward on the waist (closer to 12:00), it cannot be done.

Basically, you cannot get a proper index along the front of the magazine (bullet side). In my opinion, in order to remove the mag in the most effective manner for this pouch that will set you up for success, placing the mag deep within your palm, you must index along the side of the mag, squeeze around the front and back of the mag, and rip it out. Trying to do it the traditional way does not work because the magazines are simply too close together in the pouch to allow you to get a firm squeeze on the sides of the mag.

Again, these are just my observations from actually working with the pouch on my duty belt for a few months. If it works for you then great. But I would definitely encourage everyone to work with this pouch extensively before adopting it. It could represent a significant change in a critical component of what we do. Again, it may work well for you and it might even work well for me someday. I just haven't figured out how to properly fit it into my manual of arms yet. I want gear that speeds me up, not gear that slows me down.
