I don't have room in my safe for my vest, and I always worry that if I was burglerized some shitbag would use it for more crime.

What about cuff? They could be used against you or other occupants of your home if you were a victim of a home invasion. You just never know who sees you coming and going with your guns or other gear.

Naw, I leave my duty belt and vest out (weapon is secured). Since I wear them pretty much every day, it makes no sense to lock them up.

I have items all over the place too. I just wondered if it was a bad idea for when I was not actually in my home.

You guys don't keep your stuff in a locker at work? I have a pair of cuffs that go with me when I carry off duty, but my vest stays in my locker.

I have a take home, so most of my stuff is in the car.

Handcuffs? All over the place. Then again, so are handcuff keys. They've migrated to just about every drawer, keyring, and and trinket basket in the house. For some reason there is even one in my shaving kit. It's like 9mm duty rounds. You'd be amazed where ammo turns up around here. The vest? Steal it. The funk on the old one would kill a perp within minutes. As for the belt, etc, that's what homeowner insurance is for. I've been thinking about going to a Mirage system anyway. Take home? No way. It takes me 20 minutes to load and unload a car every night. Laptop and two clipboards. Chemical protective gear Raid/riot gear Two gear bags with maps, manuals, evidence bags, survival blankets, extra flashlights, batteries, pistol and shotgun ammo, (Buckshot and LTL) extra armor and pistol, Mylanta tablets, sinus pills, extra eyeglasses, road vests, raingear, jacket and night vision scope, small axe. Cooler with sodas and water. Rescue line bag and fingerprint kit. AR15. I really wish I drove one of the Expeditions.
