    I have always been a little worrysome about carry a holster with any signifigant retention. I spent a very long time going through a lot of paddle holsters for off duty use, as I carry where ever I go. I purchased the this holster and could not be happier. I use the paddle with this and like it because it comes with features which allows the holster to remain secure and not move at all. The finger release on the side is very reliable and haven't found any problems of when I draw the finger going "into" the trigger port. It actually positions the trigger finger almost exactly where it needs to be following the "Finger off the trigger rule."
    I have had people test the ability to remove the weapon from the holster or even get the entire paddle off my belt, and have not seen anything that concerns me. I actually have difficultly simply removing the paddle from my belt at times because it is so secure to my belt. There is also no problems of the weapon accidently coming out of the holster when running which is due to the SERPA feature. Lastly, it does not stick out as far when carrying concealed off duty, which is always a plus.

    I have purchased too many holsters in my time that have fallen entirely short when it comes to form and function. After purchasing this holster for my FN five-seven and carrying it for over a year in this rig, I purchased one for every other pistol I own....which means I have a lot of them! I LOVE this holster and so will you.

    Unless you get on the range and really spend a concerted amount of time drawing your weapon, you may miss the draw when necessary. I had one. I invested in a tactical pistol course for the heck of it using this holster. It took quite a number of draws for it to become just one step closer to muscle memory. You gotta practice a lot with this one.

    I’ve utilize it both for on duty and off duty, its a great holster for smooth draw and great retention. I got the duty holster first and loved it so much I got the concealment for off-duty and when I work a plain cloths bodyguard detail. I had the fobus concealment holster and was dissatisfied with it performance and was unable to smoothly draw from it.

    Great holster for officers in an administrative position or for training bureau officers that wear their firearm exposed. I have worn my Glock in this holster while off-duty, but the weapon tends to stick out a bit more than I would like for off-duty carry. Pancake-type concealment holsters or in-the-pants hosters work better for concealment. I like the retention system, and it is very confortable for all day carry.

    This is a GREAT holster. With either the belt slide or the paddle attached it is very secure and once you get a little practiced on the draw they are very fast and reliable. I'm hard on equipment and don't usually rate very high but these holsters are great for off duty or plain clothes asignments.

    As an investigator, my department issues a different holster than this one. The issued holster is far more complicated to draw from. I actually purchased this holster on my own, which proved to be the best law enforcement investment I've made in a long time. It allows you to smoothly draw your weapon, is VERY light, and durable. It also can be worn with a dress suit for investigators.

    We tried this holster out in the level III for duty use and got one from the Blackhawk sales representative. We put a Sig p229 DAK in the holster and could not get it out. It was the correct model and make for that gun. We had to take the holster apart to get the gun out. Blackhawk replaced the test holster for evaluation. The representative said some guy at the factory screwed it up in the process of making it. Needless to say the first impression had an impact on our department's choice of duty holster. That being said I do have 3 of this model I use with my P220, P229R and 1911 Reveloution. They work fine, however I did check them over really well before putting them into service, practice religiously and put time in on the range with them.

    This holster is awesome! I wear it on a daily basis as a off duty concealment holster. The locking device rocks. It's super smooth to draw your weapon, retenion is awesome. The paddle stays put without trying to remove itself from your belt line. It is the best concealment holster I have ever bought. I highly recommend this product.

    When I worked armed security, I chose my Spriendfield XD .45 Tactical. Unless I wanted to pay over $100 for a holster, the only other option was an Uncle Mikes Universal nylon one. I bought a serpa holster for the XD and I haven't been dissapointed. You can adjust the holster so that it cants forward to your preference, this helps a lot, especially if you ever want to draw while sitting down and it helps greatly for weapons retention.

    Although the holster fit a bit loose, a few adjustments with a heat gun and it molded into a tight fit.

    Once you trasition and become familiar with this holster as opposed to a thumb break holster the draw stroke seems more fluid. but if you rush it you will have problems. It takes some good reps to be comfortable with. If you get one watch the screw below the release when it backs out the holster still works but it holds a small tensioning piece and the pistol will rattle around. In the drop leg set up that makes a hell of alot of noise. Heard some people talking about the release locking up in dusty environments. Been in Baghdad for a few months now and have had no problems with it. Definately would spend my own money on it.

    This is by far the BEST holster I have used in 21-years. I use this for my off-duty Glcok 26. It comes with both a belt loop and paddle option. The weapon locks in perfectly, and with a swift touch of the release with your trigger finger the weapon comes out smoothly placing your finger right on top of the trigger or trigger guard. Get this if your tired of hard to remove weapon holsters or thumb snaps.

    The release mechanism works great and falls in line with the trigger finger perfectly. The holster feels secure and the fit and finish is nice. The only problem I've had is one of the belt width adjustment screws seems to be stripped and I cannot adjust it to fit a smaller belt. It was like this when I purchased it and I found it when I initially tried to adjust it.

    I USE THIS HOLSTER EVERYDAY. BLACKHAWK IS MY TOP PICK WHEN IT COMES TO A HOLSTER. IT IS ALSO A VERY SAFE HOLSTER.

    I have the dropleg & I have the chest rig for molle straps...great for drivers as a drop leg is not optimal while driving. The push button on these holsters leaves your trigger finger exactly where it needs to be, right outside the trigger well. I've heard some say that the spring in the release button goes bad but I've had both of mine for over a yr & a half with daily use & no issues.

    The screws loosen very easily. Must always check or use lock tite. Other option is to get a real holster.

    The Serpa is a poorly designed but well marketed holster that has a user to press in with the finger tip as they draw their pistol.

    Some times the finger ends up right on the trigger pressing inward well before it would be safe to do.

    I have also seen seasoned operators unable to draw from a Serpa holster under stress. I have also seen debris accumulate under the release button and "lock" the holster.

    I love mine, I agree with sarge in that you do have to practice your draw with this holster but it becomes second nature. Some of the older guys (no offense Sarge) are not used to the new stuff and fine with the old school strap and are probably better off staying with it. But I purchased this holster practiced my draw with an unloaded weapon, adjusting tention and so on. i had to draw under stress the third day of owner ship and was out and focused faster than everyone on the scene. Re-holstering is great and easy while making an arrest

    I swore by my Bianchi paddle lock until I went to my DT instructor recert. I was in my duty gear and weapon retention (was stressful folks) told me that the paddle lock, that I normally would wear, could be removed from me. So I needed a holster that would stay on my belt and was secure. A thumb snap was easy to release and the weapon could be removed so that was out. This is the one. It's durable, gives the protection needed, and secures to my belt for weapon retention safety. I am very happy with this holster and recommend it highly. Peace, Ice

    I use this holster for my Sig P228 for regular carry and cannot find a single bad thing to say about it. I have on order in the duty configuration and can't wait to get it and use it. I intend to get one for my Glock as well and now that I see they came out with one, for the Smith J-frame.

    These are great holsters! I carry on duty and some off with these every day. I own two for different guns. Wonderfully fast and seem to be tough.

    Pros: Light, strong, and fast. Natrual grip for draw. Automatically locks weapon in place. Price isn't too bad. They come with paddle or belt.
    Cons: Not many. Not great for concealment on a skinny guy unless under a heavy winter coat. Paddle also uncomfortable on skinny bones. Cannot really be drawn with support hand - Could be a safety issue if you don't carry a backup available for your support side.

    I have this as a duty holster and off duty holster. Last time I pulled my weapon out during an incidnet, the weapon was right in my hand and out in the firing position. The finger indexing was so natural, I never felt it release.

    UNSAFE DESIGN!

    Banned from many shooting schools, including us, and from FLETC.

    MANY, MANY, MANY AD's are a result of this design. Granted, a lot have been training issues (making them ND's), yet there are still more than a few that are a direct fault of this holster itself.

    Much better choices out there.
