Are those dimple picks?

Yes they are.
A few weeks ago I had to pick one of these locks as I had lost its last key.
I managed to do it with a makeshift flag pick but I felt I needed a set all the same :D.

I made my standard pin tumbler lock pics set myself but this time I went the easy way.

Take my word for it.  You're doing it wrong.  You still need the belt to position your gear around your waist but that's it's only function.  You wear the suspenders to keep your pants up and that's its only function. That way you don't have to wear the belt uncomfortably tight to support the gear and keep your pants up.  I've worn both for years.  Not lately, but I've been thinking about starting again due to this challenge.
I was just about to ask whether anyone may have an issue when taking the bathroom break, the pants would fall right down to the ankle....then I found this perfect answer.  Don't ask how I know that may happen.  :facepalm: :D

We've all been there  ;) All the stuff that's on my Tac' Vest (work) used to go on a duty belt, held to my trouser belt with four belt keeps. It weighed a ton and that's why I moved to the Tac' Vest.

In the Police I used to have to carry all the same stuff + extra 'cuffs, spray, a PDA and at least one other radio so needed to wear both belt and vest (along with body armour)  :ahhh :ahhh :ahhh

DAY 6 

As I'm not at work today I have decided to post a couple of pics' of my SAR kit. It is mostly carried in a Tac Load vest (they don't like using the word Tac-ti-cool  ::) ) I'll post some more as the challenge goes on  :tu:

Here is a shot of the vest, as usually worn. The actual kit will vary depending on the nature of the call-out but there is a core carry and the main lighty thing is a LED Lenser MT14* (adjacent to its home on the left of the vest) 

It's  attached to a Kevlar lanyard as I dont wan't to lose it, in the middle of the woods, a field or roadside etc.. :ahhh

That looks pretty much the same configuration as your duty rig except in international orange.  I think I prefer the orange.  It seems more pleasant.

I used the Vic Spirit to tighten some screws on a wheelchair, part of my rental fleet.  If they ever open outdoor festivals again this one is ready to go.

DAY 7

So, as I'm not at work, or on a SAR shout. Here's a pic' incorparating my Batman carry (today) and a 111mm to cover both challenges.

It's my only EDC pouch type thing (but does come with a belt clip) with my Rescue and SwissTool  :tu:

However, absolutely no uses at all today  :dunno: :ahhh :ahhh :ahhh

Day 7

d7 by Humayd a r Mahomedy, on Flickr

support gear again.
for some reason,i kept excluding my 21 ASP,carried AIWB.
this completes my "Defensive Batbelt",i have a non lethal,compact,impact tool in the "Force Continuum".
in South Africa,lethal force [i.e,legally owned firearms] may only be used to protect one's life [or the life of one whom one may choose to protect] in the event of an imminent,illegal,attack.
my edc light is an old Surefire L2 Lumamax. it's not the latest greatest,but it's bomb proof. the clip broke,and i used some stainless steel for a quick fix,plan on doing a titanium clip "tomorrow". i swear by Surefire lights,a couple years ago,when Nitecore came into SA,i did a demo for my buddies. at the time,those lights were warrantied for a drop of 1mt. i placed my L2 on the roof of my truck/ute [97 Toyota Hilux d/c 4x4] and swiped it off a few times,dropping it onto a tarred surface from a height of around 1.7mts.
the downside to the old torches are the CR123's,but i'm becoming a dinosaur so,run with it

Not everyday does it snow around here -actually last time was some 10 years ago-
Luckily the yard work was done yesterday, so it was just a bit of backyard fun this morning

I don't have a sidearm  ::) (proabably a good thing  :ahhh )

I have awl-ways had a SureFire, they are virtually indestructable  :tu:

However, I agree with you on the CR123 batteries (they are VERY expensive in the UK)  :rant:

it's a responsibilty for sure,and the application process is lengthy and somewhat complicated.
i enjoy the sport aspect immensely,and it's a requirement for edc'ing a handgun,so i,and every other S African firearm owner, willingly jump through the hoops.
yep,pretty much.i have a few other SF's,but L2 is my old faithful.
looks like those buggers are expensive all over,and i need more  :'(

Day 07
I had the great pleasure today to reach back and grab my fixed blade knife, the Wissahickon Critter, to open an envelope from the Treasury Department to find my COVID stimulus check.  $600 will buy a lot of new 111mm SAKs.  Thinking I might just  need a Helmsman or a Hercules.

We don't get to carry here in the UK. You can not have a side arm (at all, ever)

I even need a lawful/reasonable excuse to carry my 111mm, or ANY locking blade etc (see previous rants  :rant: )

Nice carry though  :tu:

Absolutley love using the elastic sleeve to carry knives, depending on the knife it just disappears on your belt and the mini locking S-biner is a new carry for me but I'm liking it on the minitool  :tu:
