What gear do you use?

Updated: Feb 29




I get asked this question fairly often as I travel around the country teaching classes or in casual conversation as I meet people and they find out my background. It is a very complex answer and all starts with, well it depends?


My gear set up is dependent on the activity and environment in which I am employing my equipment. It is constantly evolving through trail and error. This widget works better than that widget. This widget is more comfortable that that widget. The personal preferences go on and on. The great thing is that I get to choose what I want to use and I am not limited by policies, rules, or what is on hand in the supply room.

Tactical gear is a niche market and to put it bluntly, items are hard to find. Items that are very popular are often out of stock, so you get on a waiting list. It takes a week or so to get that pouch. It takes a couple of months to get that holster. Companies are trying to keep up, but the demand is high.


People don't want to waste their money buying something that is low quality of something that they may not like. I hope that the following list can be useful to those of you that read this. If you have questions, Please ask. I will attempt to keep this post up to date with what I am currently using.
