Mag pouches and belt questions!
« on: August 09, 2017, 01:13:24 PM »
Hey Guys,

I'm finally jumping into the USPSA scene after tip toeing around it for a few years. I will be using my SP-01 Shadow for production.

Last year I purchased an IDPA holster 'kit' from Comp-Tac that included the International holster with belt/paddle/doh options to be used in IDPA/USPSA, and a double mag pouch. If I have done my research correctly, I need 5 mag pouches and I should invest in a nice belt. Am I OK using the Comp-Tac holster and getting a belt/pouch combo to use it with?

Should I use the double mag pouch that came in my kit and buy (3) more Comp-Tac singles, or just buy (5) singles from say CR Speed? I was also looking at the CR Speed Ultra belt too while I'm at it. If you have a better recommendation please let me know. I'd like to order everything tonight.

I appreciate the help guys/gals and look forward to getting into the sport!

Thanks

I would run the CR Speed or Double Alpha Academy belt.  Those two are probably the most used belts in competitive shooting.

I also think you would be better off with the CR Speed mag pouches than the Comptac.

You can get them in a package deal from Ben Stoeger Pro Shop.

I recommend that since you're just getting into USPSA to use whatever you have already. Have fun and get your feet wet. If you need more mag pouches, get single pouches. They are better since you can space them apart how you want and adjust the cant how you want. Overall the adjustability makes the individual mag pouches far superior to double mag pouches. Once you find that you like USPSA and are getting better, learning how to be competitive, then upgrade your gear. As mentioned before Ben Stoeger Pro Shop has some nice package deals. Or if you want to piece it all together BSPS has whatever you need. Shooter's connection is also a great place to get stuff for competitive shooting. Another piece of advice, whenever you can get the Boss Hanger. That is the best accessory for your Holster. It really helps your draw.

Thanks for the tips guys. I ended up ordering the DAA Premium belt along with (5) DAA Racer mag pouches. I figured if I was going to spend the money on additional pouches I'd just get the ones that would hopefully suit me best down the road. I needed a belt regardless as well.

I think you'll be happy.  I have 2 DAA belts, 2 DAA Racemaster mag pouches, and the original DAA Racemaster holster.

you have probably figured it out by now but the racers are awesome, just be sure to loctite the pouches onto the mounts.  If you go bullets out loctite the acorn nut onto the spacer bolt.

I'm in the same boat as the OP. Great tips on the DAA gear. Looks like good stuff.
