    I only use to carry keys and some pepper spray, and I would only use that if I had to fight for my life. The best equipment and the most useful thing I bought was a good pair of shoes.

    I use to see some guys walk around with so much crap they sounded like Jacob Marley visiting Scrooge. I never understood needing batons, cuffs and all that crap. Most of the people I worked with I wouldn't trust to carry keys, let alone a baton that could crack someone's skull open. Try using that baton and make sure you hire a good lawyer.

    If I were a guard today, I would carry a phone to call for help, a good pair a shoes for walking my rounds and for running away from danger, and I would make sure (already am) to stay in good shape.

    I was always against it but after being forced to wear one I kinda liked it. Some companies and agencies (Security &Police still mandate these.)

    Similar to what the LAPD considered the "Triangle of Death", meaning the white T shirt triangle visible on the open collar of officers, lending to a point of reference for gang members to aim for whilst trying to shoot a cop...

    11:00 - Double mag pouch

    All this with a size 28" waist

    When I shifted the heavy gear towards the from and evenly distributed the weight, my back stopped hurting within less than a week. All the gear is accessible from both hands, and quicker to get to get to. I've also noticed that it's a lot easier to control a suspect before handcuffing them since the handcuffs are in the front, and I don't have to shift my weight and hide my hand behind my back. I'll see if I can snap a picture tomorrow night of my gear.
    Aren't u right handed (based on fact that firearm is on your right side)?? If so why is the baton on the left side??????

    Nope, I don't care how old the thread is...things change. Why have 1000 threads on the same topic? I commented the point of a forum. (That is all)

    I know...They had one too many text addicts or someone that spent 7:45 talking on their cell phone during an 8 hour shift.

    If you work 50+ miles out in BFE, yeah perhaps. Because it's obvious your going to be on your own for a V E R Y long time till a Deputy or Trooper show up. But, being in or near practically any sized community? No. I am pretty sure that regardless of the agency if any cop hears of an active shooter situation involving a s/o vs. bad guy(s), they will be on scene in record time.

    Besides, I don't think you'll ever need that 11th round, or even the 76th, if you get out and go to the range and practice often.

    Thanks

    You're absolutely correct more keepers are worthwhile as would be an inner belt (I'll be purchasing those shortly), the only addition I can envisage would be an OC pouch (for the DYEwitness) likely to end up @ 10:00 next to the ASP (I'm left handed)
