    Garrity flashlight 5:00
    Handcuffs 7:00

    600,000 volt stun gun 9:00
    OC spray 10:00
    cell phone 11:00

    I have keepers between the double mag pouch and gun, right next to the flashlight, right next to the handcuffs, and another one between the cell phone and OC spray.]

    Once you have placed your equipment where you want them, you should keep them there. If you keep changing positions on your belt, you'll forget where the item your looking for really is. Remember, muscle memory is key. My firearm is on my left side, slightly forward of my hip. It never moves. My OC is forward of my weapon, that too never moves. Same thing with my magazines! Leave them there.....If you waste just one second trying to think of where you moved your tool of choice, it can be a disaster.

    Be Safe,

    Actually, every time I change my duty belt setup, I DO practice reaching for the various items on it in order to develop my muscle memory. Doing so has never been a problem. I don't think that changing the setup is such a bad thing as long as you practice and readjust your muscle memory whenever you do it.

    BTW, I'm considering adding a flashlight pouch to my vest carrier. The Pouch on my belt fits much too loosely.

    OK, what am I missing here? Why would someone have a policy against wearing cellphones on your belt? I keep my cell in a Uncle Mikes nylon holder on my left side next to wear I clip our radio.

Holster is standard none security issue that would be better off on a kid playing cops and robbers. The manager when he issued it to me; told him the gun would not fit. He took the revolver, shoved it into the holster and banged the end on the floor to make it fit.
    If it's that tight to get it in how fast can you draw it? Is it level 20 retention where the the suspect hold the bottom of the holster and bends down? You pull the weapon while place foot on should of the suspect and push off?

    So you're like a sub-contractor then? do you have to supply your own public liability insurance in addition to your self funded superannuation?

    That seems to be the chosen path of many... good luck with that
