Having the latest and greatest is all well and good. If you’re skilled enough that a CR Speed Belt, which keeps your gear in place time and time again so you don’t have to worry about those 1/10″ differences that may add 1/10 a second to your score then there’s nothing more for you in this post, but if you’re looking to shave two seconds off your time instead of two tenths then you should spend that money on something like ammo rather than buying the CR Speed Belt, the Ghost Holster and a set of CR Speed Versa Pouches.
So many people obsess needlessly over their gear, when all you really need is a good kydex holster, such as a Blackhawk CQC (non-serpa), a Blade-Tech, a Comp-Tac like Caleb’s or something equivalent and a couple mag pouches of the same variety. You’ll also need a good belt; Comp-Tac makes a reinforced gunbelt that’s perfect for IDPA. There are plenty of people at my local range that run the leagues with fairly average gear, I myself have been known to show up with an IWB Galco. One particular shooter of ours shows up every week to our matches and to some of larger local area matches when they are hosted with his carry gear: a Kramer holster and one of his several 1911s. No, he can’t beat the high-speed semi-professional and professional IPSC and USPSA shooters, but he gets a lot of practice in and spends his money shooting lots of matches and buying lots of ammo and reloading gear rather than on speed gear that won’t improve his shooting.
Nobody should rely on their gear to shoot for them, for most of us it won’t make much of a difference. If you have the money to spend don’t let me stop you but if you have a “guns and ammo budget” like most people do consider spending it where it will improve your shooting rather than wasting it on gear you don’t need.
