O.K. ya'll, I have been sitting here at this stupid computer for longer than I care to admit looking for a discussion on leather vs. nylon duty gear. I didn't want to hear DC Law say, "the search button is your friend." But my 7 month old daughter is wide awake at 10 pm with my wife ready to go to sleep; therefore I can't stick around rp and play anymore. So I have to ask the question.
I have to provide my own duty gear. I was out pricing brand new gear today. :eek: I had no idea it cost so stinking much. I don't want to get into a lot of money and realize later I wasted it.
I know that it has a lot to do with personal preference, but since I have no experience I need some help. So I am looking just for the pros and cons, what you like, what you don't.
I met a former deputy from the department today and he offered to sell me his used gear. Again, since I am new I don't know if this is a good idea or not and how much $ is too much.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
