Just got my Safariland Triple retention holster for my P99.
excellant retention, if someone grabbed my gun, theyd pull me everywhere before they got it out.......i gotta practice with it more.........the directions that came with it say to practice until u can draw in 2 seconds or less......(oops is that a keltec that snuck in the pic?)

the P99 is my duty gun.
Again ,i am a reserve deputy, so i can carry pretty much whatever i want.
Actually the full time deputies , that are issued USPs. are jealous.......they like the way the P99 feels alot better..........
besides that , its just BETTER!! lol HAHAHA

I was a reserve officer for a couple of years and had a Safariland for a Sig P229. I really liked it. Good Choice.

We too had leway in what we carried, but at that time the full timers were issued P229's and I opted to carry it as well. The P99 had not been released at that time.

Is your Kel-Tec your back up? I used a Beretta Tomcat .32. I had my wife modify a small universal holster to attach to the front of my Point Blank armor velcro so that I could pull my shirt open with my left and draw with my right...

Yep keltecs my back up
i keep it in a uncle mike #1 holster in my left pocket

when we step out of the car, my left hand goes in my pocket.......(unless i have to use my light)
so when u look at me, i look like i just have my hand in my pocket and i dont look offensive (as opposed to keeping my righ thand on my gun) but in actuallity i DO have my hand on a gun....

Does your department allow you to patrol alone or are you 2 man cars? Mine, a Indiana city of about 40,000, is fairly liberal about letting reserve officers riding alone. It didn't used to be that way, but a new mayor and new chief changed it.

Now the reserves go through addtional 30 hours of training that makes a total of just under 100 hours before they are allow to go on the street and then only cleared to go it alone after 6 months of OJT with a reserve FTO.

I almost never went out on mine own. I liked the company of a 2 man car...more so on those dead, cold, winter nights when NO ONE is out doing bad things because it's to #### cold.

Ah, I miss those days....but after the kids were born and work got to busy, I couldn't devote the time that I wanted to. So I resigned. Better to allow a person that can give the time, than take up a slot for a job that I could not make the time for....

Be safe and take care.....

eventually i will be able to go out on my own, but again, like you said, its not something i like to do.
We have certain high crime areas we frequent, and the Sgt who is over me, got jumped by a few guys there a while back. not a good area. when one car is there, the nearest car always joins him just for backup.

but hey, its fun stuff, i love it to death!! heres a goober pic of me in my get up!! pardon the swords in the background.

I don't miss my days having to lug around a Smith 4006.

I just got a 6281 for my P99 for carrying in the store. It's an adaptation of the 6280 for belt wear with the rotating hood. Nice holster and very fast and very secure.

I hope you work yourself down to well under two seconds on your draw. A perp with a knife at 21 feet can be on you in two seconds or less. Good luck and stay safe out there.
