full duty belt

OK, I'm not a cop and no longer want to be one. I did however get a part time job working armed security to get me through college. I have to get a
Duty belt,
Retention holster for a G17
2 mag pouch
Asp or other good baton
nylon or kydex should be good for all of the above
I have a little over a week to get all this stuff and I don't want to spend a ton of money. I believe in quality gear, but I have seen soldiers spend way too much on gear, and I am not gonna be that guy. It's also just a part time job, so I don't want to spent my whole first paycheck.
any recommendations of brands or online stores (if they offer fast shipping) would be greatly appreciated.

so far I am looking at uncle mikes duty belt, Blanchi accumold, uncle mikes kydex 2 mag, and the asp looks like $70-$100
also is a kydex magpouch going to beat up plastic glock mags?

Full duty belt

Weather you ware LEATHER or NYLON depends on what your employer will allow. My recommendation is to go to
and bid on what you want. I type in Bianchi Holsters.

If time is of the essence, check out your local big box outdoor store (Sportsman's, Cabela's, etc.) Uncle Mike gear should do the trick for cheap...

I swear by a nylon belt from Uncle Mike for my open carry in the desert. I even use a few of his nylon pouches (one zipper, two velcro) and one of the Kydex holsters for my G17. Their kydex retention holsters kick ass: fully adjustable cant, height and tightness of retention. If you're required to have a thumb break, they got those too. AVOID the nylon holsters... Spend the extra $4 on the kydex lol.

Many are about to flame me for the Uncle Mike's gear, but as long as it's not a nylon holster for CCW, their stuff does the job just fine. (Although, their little pocket holsters with no clips work great for my airweight... but that's another thread )
Rock out with your Glock out!

Uncle Mikes for the belt and holster have worked for me. The rest of my stuff is mix and match.
