Tactical goodies

so i've been looking around at some new stuff i wanna get and i was just wondering where i could find it cheapest as im sure theres a place or 2 i didn't find in my searching. purpose being huntin, no fun tactical adventures for me but, i like to be prepared and stylish . ive been looking a tactical vest and either bying a leg holster or making the rigging to make the one i have work as a drop holster. im sick of smackind my rifle into my pistol when i hike.
http://cgi.ebay.com/Tactical-Load-Be...QQcmdZViewItem this is the vest ive pretty well decided on and this is esentially the holster i have sept it probly not the right size. my sidearm is a Ruger P94 s.e. .40.
http://cgi.ebay.com/UNCLE-MIKES-SIDE...QQcmdZViewItem sorry for the stupid long links i don't know how to shorten em with out maken em not work

That holster is a piece of shit. A raging, angry, festering piece of shit.

In my experience, UM stuff is made cheaply & fits poorly. Notice how it’s about the cheapest thing out there? It’s your gun, put it in a sock and tie it around your waist if you want. What do I know I’m just somebody on some site

im not trying to be an ass i was just wondering. and for all i know u know alot more than me. and as far as a vest w/holster i really don't like most of em. they seem over priced and most are lacking in storage. ok so that said what the best bet as far as a leg holster?

I got an Eagle Ind. drop holster. Had it for 3+ years and it's worked fine.

The vest is kind of a joke.
it doesn't appear to be configurable and its set up strictly for paintball ammo.
Or is this for paintball?

look for MOLLE gear.

no your right it's not configurable. i think it's a knock off of a south african military setup.

if you're gonna buy a piece of kit spend the money and get a good one; typically you will only have to do it once...blackhawk is crap in my opinion...i'm like this setup with some pouches and stuff:

http://www.skdtac.com/index.asp?Page...PROD&ProdID=42
or these are nice for carrying just ammo for non-tacitcal scenarios
http://www.skdtac.com/index.asp?Page...ROD&ProdID=722


remember this shit is supposed to help save your life and your treating like a fucking trip to the dollar store...yeah i know it's just a plate carrier, but i sustained a direct hit from a pretty hearty EFP IED and lived and i was wearing just a plate carrier and a mich helmet...

don't bargain bob your kit...your life could one day depend on it...

Airsoft is pretty powerful. My friend has one that can shoot out windows. But the zipper are probably plastic too

Just a word on Uncle Mike's stuff. I used to use their stuff. I actually liked their holsters, although my last one, the plastic broke when I snagged it on something. I switched to Safariland due to agency policy, but I was going that direction anyway. I prefer the Safariland, I'm beating the crap out of my holster and I haven't had one problem with it yet.
