I will be attending a local police academy in the near future, seeing how I am sponsoring and paying myself, I have to provide my own gear. I must bring a firearm (my Wilson CQB), I have played with some Class 3 retentions and don't really like them, how about a side armor kydex or any other suggestions from some of you with experience. Handcuffs? ASP verses Sticks.

What are your requirements for the gear? If you are required to have a retention holster, the Safariland SLS system is hard to beat.

I use the safariland 6280 SLS holster. It is basically the top gun 200 model but instead of the standard thumb break it has a rotating hood making it a level II.
It is just as fast as a thumb break holster and has enough added security to make me feel better in a crowd

It has never knocked the ambi safety's off on my Colt guvm't

If you don't mind a straight drop cant it's a great holster.

I triple or quadruple the Safariland 6280 vote. I used a SSIII for a long time until I tried the SLS and I have never looked back. Easy to learn and use and very secure. AS for batons, depends on what you are doing..I use an ASP when I am on the bike but keep my PR-24 in the car for "social" occasions. Hope this helps.

I'd have to agree with everyone else, the SLS (6280) is my choice. The folks at Safariland are the best innovators when it comes to duty holsters.

The best part of the Safariland rotating hood, is how fast you ca re-secure the weapon. Often you will find yourself having to holster and go hands on. With just a flip of the hood and the weapon is secure.Much faster and more positive than fussing with a thumb strap.

I agree, also if you get the model 6000 hood it makes it harder for a bad guy to get to the thumb latch. It also insures that body armor can't diengage the rotating hood.

KMF,
Congrats!! Buy all Safariland. I also use the SLS (6280) holster and find it to be the best on the market. I had a Gould & Goodrich Level 3 and it sucked. Too much movement inorder to deploy the weapon. Stay safe!

good shootin', gunny

Also stick with the ASP on the belt. A Monadnanock PR-24 is good to have in the car.
Just my .02 worth.

Sorry for the 3rd reply. Peerless cuffs seem to be the standard around these parts. My PD issues this brand although I carry Hiaat. W/O giving any delicate info across this public board, ask another LEO as to why.
