    Contract as in I work for other security companies when they need me and im not on there books I just invoice them for my hours. I also work for small businesses that only need one person to do their cash transit or patrolling, and again I just invoice them my hours.
    I had the impression you needed more than a Security License to operate as a Security Company (one man albeit)?

      To operate a company you do need to get a Security Providers license which costs about $1000AUD but considering Im only contracting as a sole provider I am not deemed a company so I am no different to a Security Officer that is an employee. Except I pay my own tax and superannuation (or lack thereof )

          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?

            It isn't policy but we've been told by are Sargents and Captian not to wear them on the belt. They also said that we have to wear earpieces or they would suspend us for 3 days. My earhugger quit on me 3 months ago... haven't missed a day

              Lets see. Ten year old revolver (retired PD issue). A very heavy Taurus .38 Spl. Cuffs are along the same age. I think my grand mother could brake out of them for they look more like dime store toys. Straight baton that belongs in a land fill. 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?

                  You don't draw the weapon. Its there for visual intimidation purposes.

                      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.

                        I've changed my setup yet again. Here it is:

                        Double mag pouch, now worn horizontally instead of vertically, 1:00
                        gun 3:00
                        21" ASP 4:00
                        Garrity flashlight 5:00
                        Handcuffs 7:00
                        pocketknife 8:00
                        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.

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

                          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.

                            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.

                              My duty belt configuration was in it's organisational stage last time I posted anything here, thanks to some valuable input from other members this is the layout I've settled on... and it seems to work a treat for me

                              From left-to-right...

                              11:00 Multi tool
                              09:00 21" ASP
                              06:00 Latex glove pouch
                              04:00 Maglite torch/ring
                              03:00 Double Mag' pouch holding mobile phone & backup LED torch

                                Nice clean rig there I see. As I mentioned before, I always carried 2 x extra belt keepers to ensure that nothing moved and for the extra $12.00 US it was worth it (plus 1 of them has the S/W key keeper inside).
