I went with big 5 for my main boots, they had some decent smith and wessons for $50, on sale, but they always have some cheap itasca, or response gear boots on sale for about $30. Sometimes you can find them for as low as $20, just go to their website and it will have their current sales ad.

The best advice without out right giving the answer was to obtain the digital copy of the handbook and do a keyword search until you find what is needed. I think someone even posted the url for pdf version.

They don't have brass snaps. They are all black. My whole setup is Uncle Mike's Cordura Nylon. It's comparable to Bianchi.

It looks good..

Where did you find this (POCKET SIZE NOTEBOOK WITH OUR LOGO ON IT)

I just got a 3pack from office max. I hope those are ok..

Your (POCKET DICTIONARY) I found a 2 in 1.. A pocket Dictionary & Thesaurus at Barns & Nobel (5$ or 8$)

Your (2 PACKS OF UNDER SHIRTS WHITE ) you might want to buy more so you dont have to wash as much. I pick up 3 packs from Costco which had 6 white tees in one pack.. One pack will get me through one week

Only thing I have left is to order my PT gear.. 3 sets of sweat pants and tee shirts..

I dont sew so I will not be buying that. If anything happens I will just pull out another uniform and take care of it on the weekend. ( Im bring all 3 sets of class B with me)

WATER BOTTLE--- Costco water case is a better value.

HAND SANITIZER-- Pick up at the 99 cent store

MOUTH PIECE -- Pick up at big 5 for 1 doller (nike blk)

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Im trying to buy everything before I go up there. I have better control over my $$$ and the quality of equipment.

I know they have everything up there but before I hit the academy grounds I want to use my ability to use other options beside what CDCR offers...

Im not from up there so I would not have a clue on where to go to pick up stuff or will we even have time to go price equipment...

once again my 2cents

Just my 2cent

I was going to ask the same question! I'm probably going to wait until the end of September. I'm already maxed out on funds and I still have some more items to purchase. As stated in the handbook, it's only seasonal. So, you actually won't need it until October.

Thx for the response, I appreciate it. I was going to purchase it but the Long Beach Quartermasters had the one with the fur on the collar, which is prohibited according to our handbook.

Seasonally mandatory is october through may. Per m and n of page 9. I have taken this to mean I do NOT need them at this time. As well as gloves.

Do we need to purchase a universal radio carrier with retention strap? Behind page 9 in the hand book it says yes but it's missing on the checklist. I'm gonna assume it's a yes.

Has anyone heard anything new on the CA budget/GAS issue where the Gov. has ordered minimum wage for state workers? I keep checking the Sacramento Bee website, and have seen articles that explain most of it. Just wondering if anyone on here has another source for up to date and accurate info. Thanks!

Leave your gear in your car. Just show up in uniform with the Class B attire, boots, hat, paperwork (including handbook & test) along with any meds or items that are required to be checked in.
