    How come you're buying it?

    And if it's because you're going to be a Reserve or something you should talk to your supervisor.

    Every department is different. In my area they carry vertical mag pouches, where my brother works they carry horizontal.... things like that could trip you up.

    It's for sheriff's reserve.

    Ask them what they require you carry, and what's allowed above and beyond that. That should help get you in the ball park.

    I will ask around but I just wanted to get a ballpark.

    I do know I need a full sized Glock in .40 or .45.

    I currently have a 23 but looks like I need to swap that for a 22.

    I have a wilderness tactical instructor belt. I don't know if that will suffice as a duty belt.

    I have a surefire g2..probably need to replace that with a fuller sized light.

    I have a galco brown leather mag holster that will look pretty out of place so I guess I'll replace that.

    You'll probably need a double mag case, and I'd get one of the small pouches for latex gloves and puncture resistant gloves.

    No, the wilderness belt won't cut it, it wont support the weight.

    Cuff case, Taser, Radio, OC, spare light, glove pouch, Holster/firearm, Asp, Key holder and magazines.

    Sounds like a lot of stuff, but all that fits on a 34" waist with nothing positioned on my back.

    Word of advice, get the Bianchi Accumold nylon stuff if you get a choice.

    I love leather, but nylon is easier to take care of, easier to clean and last longer.

    S&W or Peerless are the only ones I'd buy, I prefer the hinged. Don't buy the blue ones, make darn sure you get stainless.

    I only trust SW and I carry a set of each chain and hinged. Get the nickel finish not the blued.

    Try do carry as little as possible. Otherwise you can strain your back. And you don't want to carry anything extra while chasing someone.
    You will need everything on your list. And probably pepperspray. Some people carry a leatherman or similar.

    Still not that cheap though!

    I priced some stuff on galls and then I just returned from Sportsman's Warehouse. They didn't have too much at Sportsmans. Mag pouch and a few random pieces.

    I'll supplement...I'm also not opposed to going used (lightly).
