my friend is a police officer and carries a HK. I told hiom about the extended mag release. he said they he wont use one for fear that his gear or seatbelt would release the mag at a time he doesnt want it to. I thought that made sense....until I installed the ext mag release on my ownHK. i think it would be very hard to accidently drop a mag.

I have the extended mag release on my USPCs. My holster covers my trigger guard and the mag release. It would be virtually impossible for gear or a seatbelt to release the mag release, extended or regular. Maybe his holster sucks and he needs a better one?

maybe - I think he was just trained with the mindset "don't modify your gun". maybe a dept policy?

Could be department policy. I know my departments armorer has to do an inspection on your list approved firearm before you can carry it on duty. Inspection consists of mods and "trigger jobs."

I completely agree. I think the extended mag release is great but to each his own. IMHO whatever makes YOU feel best with your EDC is the way to go. If the mod is going to cause additional worry for a LE who has more than enough to think about on a daily basis than by all means, leave it off.
