I was in a large city end of last week and going through the drive through when a I saw a armored truck parking. Guy gets out to go inside and I stop to let him go in fornt of me. He has on a very, very nice leather belt and holster rig with a 4" Revolver with Hogue grips (I am assuming a Smith or Ruger revolver couldn't really tell, may have been a old Colt) but on his belt he had a ammo loops with ammo. I haven't seen a rig like that since I was a kid, it was really nice, not sure I would want to reload in a hurry from loops but it was definitely a pleasant sight and it seems it is a company or individual who cares for his equipment.

Bottom feeders don't work well in the slits in armored truck.
Most truck employees carry revolvers and/or shotguns.
I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.
I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

How long ago since you were a "kid"? That is kind of interesting. I don't know much about the Armored car guys, or the carriers, but I've observed many carrying the cash bags in and out of the stores and such. I'm almost sure they are underpaid for the risks they face on the job. I'm sure many of them have to supply their own gear and weapon(s). Revolvers are not really something we should be surprised at being carried by professionals or those enlisted in services requiring tactical response. After all, a lot of revolvers require the long pull of the trigger in double action. Your views about this individual somewhat dictate that they are rather serious in their demeanor, and chose their tools for good reasons. I'll bet is was a Colt or Ruger. Nothing wrong with a six-shooter on the hip. It does however take some of us back to the day. Refreshing I would guess. Not to contemplate the reasons behind their choice of weapons nor to criticize them in any way.

Not many years ago I think it was policy to have revolvor in hand, When carring Money Bag (Brinks) I think ; )

RAMROD is right when he says under paid. 10 dollars a hour to protect a couple hundred thousand to a couple million dollars in the middle of Miami! We have worked with the Brinks guys before with my security company and we both had Smith & Wessons on our hips. Im a younger guy so no nostalgia here.
