new use for Smart Carry holster
Our department is in the middle of fall qualifications (do 2 a year) and we got to use our brand new sims shoothouse for scenario training. It was my day yesterday.
It was awesome and I'm glad to say I got no paint on me and shot the bad guys successfully, including a off-duty cop scenario....properly recognized and didn't shoot the cop.
Anyway, I was preparing for this sims, packing gear night before etc, and I remembered in the academy when we did sims training and what we had to wear for protection. Part of this was a towel either draped over the belt or tucked in front of the pants to protect things that you really didn't want to be hit by a sims round :nutkick:
There is protective gear available but I don't want to purchase it for just once a year, so as I was packing my gear I was getting mag pouches, etc and my smart carry was in the storage box (I don't wear it very often, but on occasion). So it him me....why not try this? I got one of my socks, folded it in half and stuffed it in the side where the pistol goes. I got one of my son's socks and put it in the side where the spare mag goes....oila! Instant family jewel protector.
I wore it a little lower than normal and it worked like a champ, wasn't too bulky, just right, wasn't as cumbersome as the big strap on cups they provide us with--can bend/twist/go prone a lot more comfortably.
Just thought I'd share in case anyone else will be doing airsoft or sims training. It was a very easy to use protector.
and yes I qualified on everything :smile: G30 off-duty, Keltec P11 backup and night qual with the G17 248/250 (do rifle/shotgun in spring)
