Dave L. writes . . .
I’m a retired deputy sheriff and I’m still carrying the same plain clothes/off duty pistol and gear that served me pretty well over the last dozen years or so. The pistol is an officer’s frame Kimber Ultra Carry II in an El Paso Sky Six holster. I started in law enforcement when we carried revolvers in leather thumb break holsters and I’ve never gotten away from that habit.
The magazine holder is also from El Paso and the my basketweave Ranger style belt is a no-name farm store special. I carry Hornady 230 grain XTP hollow points with a seven round magazine in the pistol and two eight round Chip Mccormick magazines on my belt.
I’ve carried the SOG Flash II assisted opening knife for a lot of years and the little rechargeable flash light on my key ring is a Royvon Aurora A3. The light isn’t super bright, but it rides pretty well in my pocket and does the job.
As you can see I’m pretty old school. The Kimber is heavy and bulky, but I can hit with it. In my old age I don’t intend to go looking for trouble, but should trouble find me I think that I can hold my own.
