    South Aussie, is the same as New Zealand - CIT are allowed to carry .......... NOTHING perhaps a 3D Maglite. Even their police unless in special duties do not carry more than a pen and notebook and a set of cuffs.

      No lol I as a CIT officer and I carry a Glock 17i.

      I was just saying that I have never seen CIT guards carry a gun but only on a duty belt

      Our police carry "guns" but they explode when they shoot them

      Joys of using a necked down 357 round in a 38 I guess.

        I can't stand a bunch of crap clanging around my waist (in and out of a SUV many many times every day/night), so I keep gear on the duty belt to a minimum and utilize cargo pouches and pockets as much as possible.

        Anyways, from right front clockwise to left front.

        Flex cuff channel mouth
        OC
        keeper
        .45
        hanger for drop leg M18 holster
        keeper
        2 keepers across my lower back
        *
        *
        radio
        keeper
        flashlight ring
        keeper
        ASP baton
        mag/mag
        flex cuff channel mouth

        keycards always in my top right shirt pocket (or around my neck)
        remote vehicle starter/opener always in my left front trouser pocket (or around my neck with the card keys)
        key ring always in my right front trouser pocket
        cellphone always in my left trouser cargo pocket
        smokes/lighter/ID always in my top left shirt pocket (ID sometimes around the neck as well)

        tip for keeping stuff from spilling out of BDU trouser cargo pockets when sitting down, especially driving/riding: right pocket button right-side, left pocket button left-side. Likewise for the shirts: right side pocket, right side button, left side pocket, left side button. Keeps stuff from coming out when you bend down, wrestle, crawl.

        I keep the flex cuff cutter in the truck.

          Not usually, but it depends what I am doing. I am a part time police officer, and when I am doing certain events I will wear it (like crowd control). The city I work in is a mid size suburb of a large city, and we get quite a bit of the negative element from the city.

          That was also why I carried all my gear at the armored car place

            2:00Metal key clip
            keeper

            Keeper
            5:30 Double cuff case
            keeper in middle of back
            6:30 Flashlight holder (S&W Three light thing {wal-mart})
            Keeper

                On occasion we use Freeze+P, and we have wooden Riot Batons, but when on Patrol or Transportation runs, we don't carry them.

                  pager pouch
                  belt keeper
                  holster
                  belt keeper
                  double glove pouch

                  back is bare for patrol/stationary duty comfort

                  cuff case
                  key keeper
                  Stinger LED in light pouch
                  radio pouch attachment point
                  double mag pouch.



                  I might end up scooting the radio pouch to the back somewhere, I only wear it when I dismount the truck...

                        Looks like two OC cases pushed together.

                        One for OC, one for DyeWitness?

                            Not sure about Maelstrom's state's laws but OC is not permitted in my state and our laws are verysimilar. Perhaps a Lighter and something some Life Savers ? LOL - could be dye marker which is legal in his state.

                            This reminds me of a fellow site manager who when working special events and sharing the ops work, would always come to work prepared with his duty belt loaded with up snacks (as no cuffs allowed and leather pouches are a pain to remove his cuff case and others were loaded up.). He always had Lifesavers, Jelly Beans, Starbursts and other things hidden away to munch on to keep and to keep us going on those lunch to dawn shifts, whilst another friend always had a small knife pouch on his duty belt for a spare lighter or 2 after I stopped smoking.

                              What brand belt is that, out of curiosity? I'm not familiar with that particular style... From the pic, it looks as if the pointed end overlaps a bit, placing your cuffs at about 10 or 11 oclock next to the taser?
