Duty-Gear Advice From A Pro
Reader France had so many questions about security gear that we called in a pinch hitter. Also, Reader Capobianco takes us to task for underselling the 22 Winchester Magnum round.
Im a private security officer. When I was deciding on a duty gun, I considered the Springfield XD45 Tactical, but the lack of a thumb safety concerned me. Does an aftermarket safety exist? For now, Im carrying a Series 70 Springfield 1911. Is there a duty holster youd recommend? Also, any recommendation for cold-weather gloves when manipulating the 1911, and do you have a preference for a particular tactical light? Thanks for your great research! - Mr. Frances specific questions were outside our areas of expertise, so we turned to Duane Liptak, director of Government Programs and Training for Brownells, to get answers.
