No problems here. 1911 though, not glock. I have hundreds of draw strokes for reloads and the learning curve was short, for me. Good on you though for not just going with popular opinion.

The PD is buying, so I'll take the MOTO. In the event I just need a 3.5mm listen only, I have a nice Surefire EP series in my locker. Hawks not bad either but I prefer Tactical Ear Gadgets.

Lucky! haha. I'm pretty sure tactical ear gadgets just distributes Hawk. At least on my earpiece it has Tactical ear gadgets printed on the PTT button. I like being able to get warrant returns or whatever right in front of people, you do get some strange looks in restaurants though when you laugh at the dispatcher or whoever and they don't realize you have an earpiece

sorry for all the clutter
Cop Talk

I'm 5'10" and pushin' just over 150 and no I do not carry everything pictured everyday.
Leather belt gets used the most, my "Tac" belt more for those cruddy nights and outdoor range training. I know it's missing a holster lol that's because I let my friend borrow it for a little, it's a Safariland Level III, as for my main duty holster standard Safari II.

The brown holster I just picked up from the "outfitter" a town over, he had is taylor make it for me from Taylor, Michigan, I loved it once broken in and molded to my gun. That drop leg bag is full of Door wedges for building clearing, my duty and CC weapon is the Glock 22 .40 cal.

I thought I'd throw my rig up here...it's not done yet, I'm waiting for my baton to come in (which will be behind my sidearm, between the holster and the cuffs).

Left to right:
01. Buckle
02. Bianchi key silencer (I think?)
03. Safariland handcuff case
04. Keeper
05. Blackhawk! SERPA Taser X26 Holster
06. Keeper
07. Stinger LED in a Stallion Leather holder
08. Motorola XTS2500 in a Boston Leather holder (earpiece not shown)
09. Peerless Blued Chain cuffs in a Stallion Leather case
10. Keeper
11. Glock 22 with TLR-1LED in a Safariland holster
12. Keeper
13. Safariland magazine pouch



I'm 6'1 200lbs, and running out of room. I have elected not to carry OC for 2 reasons...1) I hate the stuff and don't want to be cross-contaminated (I carry a can in my squad though) and 2) I have no room for it. I hate the buckle but our agency requires it for all employees...they say it's a southern thing and being as I work in "the south"....they want us to use buckles

The extra leather tucks nicely under my magazine pouch and is hidden out of the way, it also gives it more security in my opinion.

Looking through here I have seen several people using carabiners as key clips on their duty belt. I just started using one. Brilliant!

I've seen that too a lot lately. I've been using the Zak tool key ring for years and have never had a problem with them. Extreemly strong and if my keys are in there, I don't have to worry about loosing them. After using these, I could never go back to those "silent key holders" lol.

I was using one like what you pictured, I like it a lot... but... the carabiner takes up less vertical real estate and does not jab me in the top of the thigh when I sit. Also, because the carabiner has a larger loop, I can snap a pair or two of spare cuffs on there if I am in a hurry.

I have recently stopped using an external mic for my radio...my duty belt deconstruction is almost complete. Next is to lose the double cuff case and replace it with a single. Light and fast.

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.
I don't get this either. The alignment of the mags that you're having so much trouble with is about as natural a grab as it can be. If you can't make your wrist get in that position, how do you zip your pants up? Surely there's just a miscommunication somewhere here.

It's a carabiner on the belt. As in, the belt is threaded through the carabiner. In other words, the belt goes into the hole in the middle of the carabiner.

I work in section 8 apartments in South Dallas, so it's nice to have options

Made some updates. New is the baton...no more wood

Also new is the mag pouch...our UOF guy approved me ditching the flaps! Back to my Safariland 79 open-top Slimline.

Cop Talk


We're getting a new chief soon...here's to hoping he opens up our sidearm policy (rumor has it...) and that we will have a choice to carry our own pistols if we so choose. Not that there is anything wrong with the issued XD40, but I'd rather tote my G21SF or a G17.

From left to right:

double mag pouch, Surefire G2X Pro, radio pouch, VTAC AR pouch, Benchmade Rescue Tool, Leatherman Wave, Monadnock, SIG 226R DAK, Sabre Red OC spray, double handcuff case.

I wear an external vest over the suspenders and a tac vest over that if I need it. My tac vest and helmet finally arrived last week.

The suspenders and Monadnock pouch are made by Calde Ridge.

I was just issued the Surefire G2X Pro. We'll see if I like it better than my issued G2 (with different end cap).
