    How do like the Blade-tech WRS compared to the Safariland 6280?

      Love it! Much faster than a 6280 and a more positive release. With the 6280 I feel like I am fumbling due to my(stubby) thumb position on release, whereas
      the WRS I have a firm, proper grip as the hood snaps forward. I cannot outdraw the hood and after transistion training do not jam it by pulling up before hood release.

      I do wish they would wrap it in a leather type coating and put on a belt shank like the traditional one that comes on the 070 and 6280.

      Secure! No other officers could figure out how to release untill I showed them how, and thank the Good Lord It hasn't been tried on the street yet.

          We have to supply 100% of our gear except patches and uniforms, if any is available. They will let us carry personal Long Guns if you qualify, and can use a M-14 or M-16 if you qual on the rifle course.

          870 is lovely on felony traffic stops! For some reason it tends to get their attention.

            I would have to put on the wide angle lens to take a pic of all the crap I have to carry to work. The trunk of the Crown Vic is full. I really need to clean it out.

            Not a fan of Blade-Tech. Seen too many of their holsters fall off/break.

              For my last 18 months on the job, the WRS worked fine for me too. (I wish I had a dime for every Safariland holster that I saw break!)

                There was one model that Safariland made that could be easily torn from the belt, but they fixed that problem as far as I know. It was discovered in one of our "weapon retention" classes... Oops!

                My only experience with Blade-Tech is with their IWB holsters, which I love. Retention is NOT the key element with those holsters, as much as concealability.

                Like Blackdog, my "complete" loadout took several trips back and forth from the squad. Boy was I happy when I got a take-home squad that I could leave loaded! I took the guns out every day, but I could leave the rest of that crap in there...

                Guns I carried on my person:



                Rifle I carried in the rack:



                Then I had to carry a Ruger Mini-14 in the trunk (policy required us to carry the issued patrol rifle at all times on duty, and made no exception for those who already carried their personally-owned rifles!)

                Then I carried an issued Remington 870 as well.

                This doesn't include another bag I kept in the trunk, containing "other" things that never saw the light of day during my time on patrol. They were kept handy for a "rainy day" that never came (thank God!)

                    It was a particular STYLE of the 6280. I can't remember exactly, but it had to do with how they attached the holster to the belt part. It was probably the 2005 model or somewhere around there. It's NOT all 6280s, but only a small subset that was made in that time-frame.

                      Was it the 6280-9321? That's the one I got.

                        I'm sorry, I don't know. It was a long time ago, and it was briefly mentioned to me by my defensive tactics instructor.

                          Was it the Safariland Levitation system?

                            I also have too much crap that I tote around. I can barely fit a an extra pair of shoes in the trunk of my car. It would be easier for me to show a pic of my trunk.
