    A buddy of mine found a duty belt, holster, mag case and handcuff case all for $40 at a flea market this weekend. This got me wondering. Does anybody know of any other places where a person like me who is just getting started and has to buy his gear on a tight budget can find deals like that?

    Craigslist. I find stuff for duty gear all the time on there.

    I'm just going to be starting out on the auxiliary so I am going to need to get a full rig. The only restriction I have heard is that we need a safariland level 3 holster. Other than that I think it is up to us.

    Gotcha. Sorry. I'm a little slow today. Lol. I was surprised because I go to flea markets all the time and have never seen anything. Our flea markets aren't as good here as in other parts of the country from what I hear. The joys of the Chicagoland area. Lol. Btw, I posted some pics of my colt on that other thread for you.

    Trigger252, your pm box was full so I'm posting this here:

    Take your time. I'll have to do the same. Lol. What are your recommendations on the cuff cases? Do you prefer the open or closed?

    I tried. It didn't take. But the pay it forward thread is seeing massive success.
