It does look a little excessive.

Its not the look that bothers me, its retaining two visible guns in a fight.

I remember several years back seeing a duty holster that looked like two
070's sewn together.

It held a G22 and a G27 on the hip with the G27 behind the primary gun, the retention issue killed it. Haven't seen one since.

The couple of episodes of that show that I saw were a little over the top, BUT they did a pretty good job of actually capturing the camaraderie between officers. Granted, I bet a lot of the general public saw the show and thought all these guys did all day was goof around, but anybody with LE experience would recognize it for what it was.

certainly feeds the stereotype. Obligatory shaved heads, tacti cool gear.

I second the retention issue. Not safe in my opinion for law enforcement use....too hard to retain 2 visible guns.

That second gun in the open kydex holster with no retention device is a big no no around here. All openly carried duty weapons need to have retention devices, even if it is just a SERPA trigger lock.

Then again, I don't see armor and a badge on the dog and there are no Colt M4's in sight so I guess they are a bit under-equipped.

In fairness, I do believe that he's got that in a safariland 6378, so there is some retention..

Dog definitely needs an ankle gun though, good call on that.

I think it would depend on whether or not that outfit was for everyday patrol or just going through doors.

For every day patrol I could definitely see retention issues.

We get that around here. My agency, the local agencies, what have you. I know this is a little odd of me, but I could never get into the shaved head thing, and don't care much for tacti cool gear any longer. Maybe I'm just getting old.

As to the BUG gun carry, I always thought the BUG was best left concealed.

Well, you know, open carry would have prevented all of this!

From the 5 minutes I've watched of that show, I believe that's his everyday uniform....

From what I recall from working with him in the past he's a lefty, the Glock in the front is his primary weapon. The one on his right hip is his taser.

If that's the case, I apologize profusely for judging the man

From what I have seen of the show (caught a few episodes) both are handguns. The K9 handler I can maybe see the reason for the gun on the vest due to possible having his primary hand tied up with a leash or such, but I still don't think its a great idea.

That may very well be the case. Hell, if I knew I would be on TV I'd bedazzle myself as much as possible too.....extra hair gel, cool glasses, etc.
