Default Holsters

I am looking at a holster like this!! I like the "locking" holster rather then the "friction" holster!!

Any comments or other links, would be nice!! It will also be used with a G26!!

Thanks,

The Blackhawk Serpa is a great retention holster and even Walmart has begun carrying them. I have Serpa's for most of my guns...

I carry every day at work with a blackhawk serpa it is a good hoslter and quite comfortable, the release is adjustable so thats a plus and you can also adjust the screws so it will have a cant to it

Didn't i hear some LEO complaining about some ND problems with high stress drawing on the Serpa? It was something about people pushing the release and their finger going inside the trigger guard from the release upon drawing.

Maybe it was a different model.

Oh dear Lord the crap you hear on the Internet. Must be the TSA guys

If that is happening to someone they are either a complete newbie with no training or an over eager mall ninja...

Just like with any piece of equipment the first thing you need to do is strap it on and don't take the darn thing off until drawing safely from it is second nature... The Serpa is a GREAT holster if you can actually conceal it (it does stick waaaaaaay out there.

For everyday concealed carry I prefer holster without retention like the Ted Blocker 911 or the Galco Avenger for 1911 style pistols.

If you don't mind me asking, why?

Actually, it seems it was a very large ginger LEO & forum member: http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f55/glock-goes-off-holster-40948/index2.html However, i am fairly certain that i have read of that elsewhere as well (all academic, i don't carry out of my car).

Though they do look & seem cool, i think i would read some more reviews first.

Edit* After a brief bit of interweb searching with "serpa holster", it appears this ND issue is the subject of some contention, but it sure does come up an awful lot.

Trainer in MI. forbids Serpa Holsters in his class - TheFiringLine Forums
I'm sorry my attempt at humor came out as flippant. With all due respect to anyone who disagrees, my personal experience with the Serpa has been nothing but satisfactory. I have heard some rumors but I have no experience first hand of any issues and I can't for the life of me figure out how my finger would end up causing an ND if I use my holster correctly.

I know several folks who use their Serpas HARD in a professional capacity and I do not recall any issues with them. Actually I bought mine for my 1911s originaly based on professional recommendations from guys that bet their bacon on them for real. That being said it is still in my opinion not a great concealment holster and I only use it for field work when I really need a holster with retention which is very seldom.
