Arguing over what ifs is like trying to figure out how many ping pong balls you can fit in the titanic. Both are pretty pointless.

Get back to the topic of the merits of the holster.

Thanks, much would be very appreciated. I have heard a lot of good things about blackhawk. And their serpa holsters but just would like someone's opinion who's tried a little bit of everything

I use a Desantis pocket holster for my LCP and a crossbreed for my PF9. I like them both.

I really like my blackhawk serpa. Its very comfortable, the angle that your pistol sits is adjustable and it has a retention button that keeps the pistol secured until you need it. And the retention button is perfectly located so that you grip the pistol with a straight trigger finger, push the button and withdraw the pistol and your finger falls perfectly into the trigger guard or very close.

I had a hand me down Fobus holster before the blackhawk, it wasnt as comfortable and not adjustable.

Ive also had a couple of the black belt clip holsters, i cant remember the name of the material. I stopped using those because while running after our dog before going to dinner my holster unclipped and the pistol landed in a mudhole in the yard....mad!

I decided it was time to get a decent holster. Paid 30 bucks for mine but my dad has a Ruger P89 and his blackhawk holster cost 45 for his pistol.

You are using this wrong and are prone to a negligent discharge. Your finger should never be in the trigger guard on your draw. It should be out of it until you are ready to shoot. Gun safety 101. You are right though...the retention clip does put your finger in the right position. If you flat finger the clip like you are supposed to...when you draw you are indexing the gun the way you are supposed to with your finger on the slide. A lot of people have been using them the way you described and there have been a lot of negligent discharges associated with this holster due to improper use.
