Another fan of Serpa. However, proper training with these holsters is critical, so one is not going to do an ND in the pull part of the presentation.

For OWB (with a cover garment) I like the Safariland ALS system. I'm working on breaking in a leather IWB holster similar to a Galco Summer Comfort or a Milt Sparks Summer Special 2.

Personally, I don't worry about a little holster rub on the slide although I've seen essentially none from the ALS holster. I suspect there will be some on the IWB holster. It's very tight.

The only thing I would consider carrying in an Uncle Mikes would be a single action revolver. (The kind that you have to pull the hammer back to fire.) That is because uncle mikes do not properly cover the trigger. They are and accidental discharge waiting to happen.

Didn't you see "Live Free or Die Hard"? John McClain and his daughter were both able to pull the trigger on the bad guys gun while it was still holstered. Had to be uncle mikes.

I like the jit slides. Simple, quite, and close holding. I am not le I carry conceal so no real need for retention.

I like the Old Faithful holsters which are leather/kydex. Also I really like the Remora Tuckable with no reinforcement. These two holsters fit all my needs.
