Nope.

Went back to the 6280. I tried to like the ALS button but my years of 6280 use brought me back. I sent the 6320 to Indigent along with my Hoffners quad holder and some 47Ds and CMCs for the academy he is starting on Monday.

He got himself a MC Operator and he's wrong handed like me.

Gotcha...I've become the opposite - I'm so accustomed to the ALS that when I use the 6280 (have a couple of them still) I look for that ALS lever. I also swipe the safety off on every auto I own, even those that don't have one.

And the MC Operator is one of Springfield's best kept secrets...it's a really solid gun for the money.

I got into a critical incident three nights ago and noticed a couple seconds after I drew that I neglected to wipe the safe off. Admittedly, I had a ****load going on but that is an unacceptable mistake. I'm hitting the range for another 500 draws. Don't want that to ever happen again.

Yeah, I like the MCO a lot. I missed a deal on one on the forums a few weeks ago. It had an S&A MW, black gunkote and tan Gunners with a flat 10-8 trigger. I went to buy it and someone had snatched it up for 1k.

Glad you caught your slip and everything was ok!

I'm curious about when you disengage your thumb safety? Some folks train to only disengage it just before firing. Personally, I think its a recipe for disaster and disengage as part of my draw stroke and train my trigger finger to stay indexed until on target and ready to fire. Not faulting your training, sir, just curious.

Thanks.

The little Sig is in my back pocket. The other gun is an X26 TASER and is in my cargo pocket.

I see that it is a taser now that I view it on the computer. I am used to seeing the yellow taser around these parts. I would like to try the taser in a cargo pocket but I don't want my pants weighed down that much.

Our dog catchers have yellow X26s. Sworn folks get black.

It ain't heavy at all. Much better than on the belt.

I think I'd like to try one of those...it looks like it holds the radio up nice and high.

Jesus, your ACOs get TASERs?? The majority of our COPS don't even have TASERs, much less the ACOs.

Much better than the alternatives.

Everone gets a TASER, except those who don't want one. Most of the admin types forgo the X26 for an asp or OC.

We have only 2 tasers and they are swapped out between the on duty officers. Of course we usually only have a max of 2 officers working at a time

They are standard issue for the North Carolina Highway Patrol. They look good, taste great, and are less filling.

Some of the deputies have bought them as well and love them. They are especially handy for the skinny guys when belt space is at a premium (a problem which I am beginning to experience as I lose yet more lard).

I was going to buy one but I don't think they make it for Glock 21 mags. Plus that would be awfully bulky and out-sticking.

General consensus from previous threads was that it stuck out too far.

Our troopers are all 5'10 and 165 pounds (every one of them) and they don't wear trouser belts...the duty belt goes through the belt loops on the pants...so for them, it sticks out as little as humanly possible! lol

Wish they made one with open top mag holders that held a pair of ASP cuffs. Safariland has yet to officially address the ASP cuffs, though their formed open top HINGED cuff pouch holds a pair of chained ASP cuffs nicely. The new dual mag pouch that orients the mags with the bullets facing out is nice and cuts about 0.75"-1" off the width of your mag pouch. It is available in a closed or open top version.

New additions are the Safariland mag holder and the TASER holster.

Both are awesome. The three mag holder is a smaller footprint and a bit lighter than my 4 mag Hoffner's pouch, although that one is very nice as well. I wanted to lighten the load a little bit. I also moved the X26 into a Serpa and it rides in my offhand cargo pocket. Nice and secure and the draw is good. I got rid of my spare mag for the AR. It sits next to me in a holder on my duty bag. I can grab it and throw it in my other cargo pocket if I deploy my rifle.

BUG is in my back pocket, off hand side.

This appears to be a winning combination.
Is your new magazine holder in plain leather finish or STX plain finish or in STX tac finish?

Cripes, 3 guns (yes, one's a taser), 3 cuffs, 3 mags, 3 bucks in your wallet, I'm sensing a trend.
