Default Gear & Equipment

I've been to various gun store throughout San Diego and I notice that their gear selections are very sparse. Even the big box stores (Turner's, Bass Pro Shop) only carry Safariland.

I'm debating on going towards the Safariland or Bladetech setup. I've seen both types of rigs during my pistol competition matches, but I'd like to try them as opposed to blind ordering online.

Anyone have any recommendations in San Diego?

The San Diego Bass Pro Shop sucks. I'm never going there again.

Bass pro in San Diego? Hmm

I went through the same thing a while back. Competition rigs, there's so many options, gun types, colors, els vs tek lock. There's just too many options for stores to stock everything. Spend a few hours on YouTube, and talk to the guys at your matches on why they're running what they are. Go from there.

I'd try the ranges that hold matches. Maybe you can ask fellow competitors to try their gear?

I'm sure TKM is referring to the Bass Pro Shops an hour north off the I-15 in Rancho Cucamonga

Fellow competitors have offered me to try on their rigs, but I'm a smaller guy with a 33" waist - the nice fellas were all 40" or wider

I'll probably take the advice of youtube research and order online.

Safariland you can't go wrong, they have pouches that work for multiple firearms. Just make sure the belt and equipment you intend to by is legal for the discipline.

At the end of the day, grab a belt: DAA, SpeedCR, Duty belt at the minimum and use the equipment from your buddies before you throw a few hundred dollars over gear.
