    Haven't posted my setup yet...

    so I guess I will.

    Leather belt- Safariland 94V buckleless

    Starting from my left:
    Open top MKIII OC holder
    Keeper
    Safariland 6280 for 4" Springfield XD .40
    Keeper
    Single handcuff case with Peerless Chain cuffs
    Glove Pouch
    keeper
    Surefire G2 in open top holder
    Radio holder
    ASP 26" baton in open top holder (this keeps it right under my reaction side armpit and it gets canted forward a little for a quick draw)
    keeper
    Dual Mag Pouch
    Key holder

    I'm a walking Safariland prop, actually its the only type of gear I will buy (I have a few UM and Bianchi holders but I'm always on the Ebay hunt for more safariland stuff), I started out with cheaper stuff and it wore down way to quickly so I'm very picky about what kind of gear I get.

    Nylon gear (using for my academy class right now)

    Safariland belt with Kydex belt buckle cover

    Left to right

    Closed top MK III oc holder
    Keeper
    6280 with hood guard (kydex for my SA XD and Nylok for G22 while in the academy)
    keeper
    Single cuff case
    glove pouch
    surefire V70 holster for my G2
    Radio holder
    Baton
    Tape recorder holder
    Mag pouch
    silent key holder

        This is more for the new people to the job security or law enforcement in my case cause it's what I see a problem with. Make sure after you set up your belt you know where your stuff is! If you need your spray and you cant remeber where you put it, you have a problem.

        On another issue I cant believe that they would let some of you carry a gun but they wont let you carry spray! How does that make sense, I believe they should give you tazers also. As long as you have the proper training for fire arms and the rest why not give you more tools.

          Liability, and the fact that the contract requires a firearm, but nothing more.

          It sounds harsh, but here's the thought process:

          You have an account which demands an armed guard. Your company provides a guard to use lethal force to protect the patrons against a... robbery, but is mainly there to observe and report.

          The contract, sometimes by law, requires a firearm with bullets in it. The guard is trained to a city or state requirement to carry a gun.

          So, you issue a gun, and nothing else. The guard is there to observe and report, and if required, use lethal force. They are not there to do anything else, so why would they need extra ammo (lol wackenhut) or intermediate weapons, because the guard is only there to observe, report, and if required kill.

          Other jurisdictions just ban pepper spray for citizens, and only authorize it for law enforcement officers. No one bitched loud enough to the government to allow guards to use pepper spray.

          Same with tasers, its illegal in my state for anyone but a public law enforcement officer to possess one.

          A lot of times, the only reason we can carry anything other than a gun is because there is no law against citizen possession of that item.

            In all the years I worked, I always carried 2 sets of cuffs, but have never had to use them both at the same time. I always carried my trusty S & W'ssince Day One, and also carried a pair of Peerless hinged cuffs, in case I had to handcuff some big goon, both for if he has large wrists, and is strong enough to break a set of chain cuffs.

            Carrying more that that is the sign of some rookie who has never seen any real action, and more folks than you think will pick up on that. I remember this one loon I worked with at this casino. He was one of those type who thought that after just a short time in the business, he knew it all, and thought he was going to take charge. Anyway, one night this yo-yo was running around wearing three sets of cuffs on one handcuff strap. I asked him first of all, what in the hell did he think he was going to do with three sets of cuffs, with all the other officers on duty wearing cuffs too, there really was no need for someone to wear more than one set. Secondly, wearing so much gear like that could look offensive to casino patrons, resulting in a complaint which would cost him a job before the casino would lose business, and above all, I told him to, under quick real time speed, take out a set of cuffs to use them. At first he gave me an indignant look, then went for the cuffs. As he took out one set, the other two hit the floor. Lot of good they would have done him then.

            I prefer to keep each set of cuffs in it's own seperate case. Double cuff cases are nice, but knowing my luck, it'd be snagging on something all the time, or digging in all the time. I wear cuff cases about above the hip pockets, away from the small of the back, yet I can get to a set of cuffs with either hand(those who have been in a scuffle or two know what I mean).

                    Wackenhut Hickey,

                    I was wondering if you have the same problem with the Surefire holster that I do? If I don't totally unscrew the end of my G2 down to the last few threads, the batteries will drain.

                      ... Do either of you have stairs in your house, or are members of the beige carpet army?

                      Or is beige carpet + gun just that universal?

                          Yes as a matter of fact I do. So far I have been able to catch it before the batteries fully drain but it is a problem though.
                          I'm glad I'm not the only one though

                            Yeah, I've popped my G2 out many times to find that the batteries were completely drained, even after I thought I had unscrewed the back enough so it wouldn't drain. Funny story though, the other day I was wearing my leather gear and sat down in the office for a minute (or 10) to work on some contracts and reports, about 5 minutes or so into a contract addendum, I start to feel a warm spot on my lower back on the right side. All of the sudden the warm spot turned into a burning sensation. I jumped up and grabbed the hot spot only to end up grabbing the head of my G2, which was hot enough that my first reaction was to swear and drop the light. It seems the way I was sitting (ok, I was slouched, hey it was 3AM) had activated the light and it had been on long enough to cause my backside a little discomfort.

                              I had this happen with my Stinger once, popped it in its (closed flap) case and promptly forgot about it. By the time it warmed up, the first gen stinger let you know by the heat.

                                That happened to my G6 one night, it was hot enough to burn a hole in the nylon carry case.
