Guns and Gear

Guns require additional gear in order to achieve their maximum effectiveness. Without the additional gear, your gun could quickly become ineffective. Having the proper gear set-up for your firearm is a basic requirement.

1. Gear belt - Uncle Mike's 1 1/2 inch wide gear belt with heavy duty velcro closures with nylon loop belt lock.

2. Cartridge Slide - 12 round capacity

3. Dual Speedloader Case - 12 round capacity (2 speedloaders @ 6 rounds each)

4. Federal Ambidexterous Holster for .357 Magnum - Allows both right-handed and left-handed use and has a quick release thumb snap which can be mounted for either right or left hand use.

5. Speedloaders - 3 speedloaders ( 2 go in the case and 1 goes in the pistol)

6. Smith & Wesson .357 Magnum Revolver

Total capacity is 30 rounds.

Not pictured is a small nylon bag which holds the belt and all gear as well as additional rounds.

This is kept readily accessible at all times.

Got gear?

Staying above the water line!

I like it. I have a traveling bag to go with a rifle that includes a belt with loaded mags in pouches, etc. I use a Blackhawk Duty Belt which also has the velcro type closure.

You ought to add a pouch for a bright flashlight to that belt, and maybe some spare batteries for it. If you need the handgun you will likely need it at night or in a building where the lights are out. Murphy seems to work that way.

I have a Stinger flashlight with belt pouch and a fixed blade to go with it but didn't show up in hte picture as they are an EDC item for me. maybe I'll repost a pic with the blade and light. Thanks.

I have EDC items like a flashlight, knife, and Leatherman tool, but I like to have another handy, just in case.

You never know when you might need that belt when the only thing you have on is your underwear. LOL.

I keep them fairly handy and can be added quickly if necessary and don't go much of anywhere without my EDC items.


BTW, What? You don't sleep with your britches on! LOL

Thanks. I just try to encourage people with a basic approach to being prepared for whatever life may throw at you...which is a lot sometimes.
