I'm thinking about going to two of the GLOCK 22-round .40 S&W mags in one of these pouches. Takes up less belt space than any other mag pouch and will give me a total of 60 rounds, not counting a backup piece. IDK...might be overkill, what do y'all think?

Hmm...not a bad idea really. My only reservation might be comfort.

As far as overkill...here's some food for thought. If one mag won't stop the fight you might be in one big enough to require several more mags to finish...

I would take the 22 round magazines and put them in your active shooter bag. Keep the standard magazines on your belt....22 round ones going to be too big and cumbersome. Bending over, getting into fights, retention, etc...

That's a good point. But on the flipside, that particular mag pouch has adjustable retention and I wear my mags on the left side of my body, at about 9:00. These things are only about 2.5" longer than the standard mags. They aren't nearly as long as the 33-round 9mm GLOCK 18 mags, if you've seen those.

It's good, here is my soon to be change in duty carry. G19 and extended G17 mags with a grip extension to fit my 19. Includes a G17/22 Safariland 79 mag pouch and a 6320 holster.

I like those Arredondo extended floorplates. Don't like the fact that they cost as much or more than the magazines themselves but they're worth it. Use them on my plainclothes G19 setup. Can't beat 41 rounds of 9mm. Not too crazy about the extended lip things you've got though. If I was gonna run 17 mags in a 19, I'd just run a 17. If it works for you though, go with it.

Only carrying 60 rounds? You must work in one of those nice rich suburbs where nothing happens!

How do you like that holster? I have the off duty version minus the tac light and have thought about a duty one but never seen one before.

Its an ALS holster, just like the 6360, but without a hood.

It is a level one, or a L2 with the sentry boomerang thingy bolted on.

I had it for my 1911 for a weekend. I couldn't get used to the button release. I spent an afternoon practicing a single action draw from this rig. Gave me a massive blister. There is also a slight propensity for it to provide some wear marks near the ejection port where the ALS bites. It wasn't bad on my 1911, but most of our guys are switching to the 6320 for a G22 and M&P. You can see it a bit after 500 or so draws.

Another 6320 complaint for Glocks is rattling with a TLR-1.

FWIW. I went back to a 6280.

The ALS provides retention. Some believe that the ALS is prone to wear and therefore not a good idea. My off duty holster is a few years old and the ALS lock inside still looks new and I've tried to pull my weapon out but it still holds strong.

Did you leave that big shroud around the lever on? Completely unusable, IMO, with that thing as there was not nearly enough room to reliably punch the button. I dremeled mine off.

The 6320 offers no shroud to have to dremel off. Just the bolt on sentry or whatever its called. Comes off with an allen wrench.

I'm sold on the 6280. Been just fine for me since 2004.

I've got two 1911 6360s and a 6378 (no SLS concealment version) and all of them have had a big plastic shroud over the ALS that is actually part of the holster mold. My suspicion is that it is there to protect the safety from being disengaged in the holster or some other such nonsense.

I may have to get a hold of a 6320 just to see how they mold it.

Interesting... the local copshop does not have the 6320 in stock... and they don't even really have too many 6360's. Seems like the SoCal standard for uniform is really the 6280 in one shape or another unless they go to another model like the Bianchi Grabber which is also quite popular. I don't hardly see the Uncle Mike's Pro-3 or variants and never the SERPA duty holsters.

Since I started the thread, I suppose I should update it:

Cop Talk

Base belt is an Uncle Mike's Ultra with velcro lining. I swapped the buckle for a Safariland buckle that I had laying around as I like the locking mechanism on it better.

From left to right:
-Uncle Mike's Quad Magazine Pouch.
-Streamlight Polytac LED in Surefire V70
-Belt Keeper
-Safariland 774 AR Magazine Pouch with 20 round PMAG
-PortaClip with Harris P7270 Portable and speaker microphone.
-DefTec MK-III OC in Bianchi Pouch
-Belt Keeper
-26" ASP in ASP Sidebreak Scabbard
-Springfield Professional PC9111LR with X300 in Safariland 6360
-Belt Keeper
-Peerless hinged and chained cuffs in Bianchi Double Case.
-Belt Keeper

I've moved the Taser to the cargo pocket after seeing Cochese's post previously. I think that the jury is still out on the Taser in the cargo pocket as it takes up a lot of room, but I have to admit that it's more comfortable than I expected and surprisingly easy to draw and reholster. Have not been wearing the Orca's lately as my shoulder was bugging me more than my back and hips. I go about two weeks with them and two weeks without them.

I really need to get an open top mag pouch, but I haven't decided whether to go all out and get the insanely cool, but expensive open top quad from Dave Lauck or try something else. I don't think that I have the width for the Safariland triple without moving stuff farther back around my left side, and I really don't want to do that as it makes sitting in the car less comfortable.

Are Orcas still being made? I would like to pick up a set or the leather suspenders by Boston Leather
