For the guys:
I've heard horror stories of getting drilled in the groin by suspects and I was wondering, is it a good idea to wear a jock strap and cup or is that unnecessary? Seems like a good idea to me but there must be a reason why more officers don't wear them. Help me out!
If you remember to keep your gun leg back, your in a position of advantage to not have to worry about the kick to the groin.
All that said, I used to carry my old cup from my football days in my war bag for riot/crowd control situations. I wear briefs so that cup fit into the the flap just fine. I recently ditched the cup and bought a pair of those cheap knee pads from Home Depot. One of those can do the same job, now.
Just so you know, it hurts women to be kicked there as well
I don't carry one, but by christ its making my eyes water thinking about getting a knee in the tabs!
LOL...Okay, just let me update my Anglo-American dictionary

It's so true, we are two peoples separated by a common language!
