    Get a cuff holder that holds two sets.

    For one thing, you cant imagine how often that comes in handy.

    For another, fat guys and woman, with short arms wont pull around far enough to cuff in the back cause they are too fat. Using two pair of cuffs, one hooked to the other, takes care of that.

    I just had a guy who took three sets; and he still had on his EMU from prison.

    You could put a knife in the underbelt. Ka-Bar TDI is what I'd use.

    I'd go with the G3 if its going to be worn on your belt and you have a full size rechargeable. The light on your belt is a backup, but you will use it almost daily and the batteries get spendy.

    Don't forget your radio holder and an OC holder.
    Good Luck to you! The reserves are a great way to help out in your community.

    I use a 1/2 size pepper spray, as it makes it easier to sit in your car. MK-3, 1.47 ounce. I'd stay away from the Fox spray in the green can, its pretty hot stuff. Rule of thumb --- you WILL get sprayed by yourself and your partner, so if you don't mind it in your grill, go ahead and get it.

    I don't like hinged cuffs, because they only flex in one axis. They are more difficult to apply rapidly. I think they're gimmicky.

    Ditto on getting the nickel plated and the Peerless. Durable and time tested.

    Also, get yourself an UnderArmor t-shirt, it wicks the moisture away from your body and makes it a little more comfortable under the vest.

    Thats exactly why I do like them, like anything else, you just have to learn how to use them.

    Thats the reason I carry a set of hinged is so the suspect can not move his/her hands when in custody or sitting in the back of the crusier. But look into S&W or peerless but the Mil uses S&W so thats why I carry them. And trust me get a set of both they come in handy in different situations of the job. They serve me well on my duty tours daily.

    Don't forget a good handcuff key. The one that comes with the cuffs is dinky and hard to work with, especially at night. You want a bigger one that is easier to manipulate in the dark. Streamlight makes a nice one that glows with a small LED light when you squeeze it together.

    My duty belt goes like this, from my left to my right from center:, gerber/leatherman, oc, cuff strap(asp chain), main flashlight pouch, radio holder, keeper to hold occasional 3rd set of cuffs(s&w chain), (glove case, asp holder, cuff strap(asp hinged), duty holster, silent key keeper, mag pouch with my secondary light attached.

I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt
