    1st review

    Blackhawk serpa 2 holster is by far one of the best tactical holster systems I have owned. I am on my third deployment in Iraq. The serpa 2 held up to 15 months of wear and tear. Most the soldiers in my company purchased them before we left. I purchased mine after the last time my old cheap holster kept dropping my side arm when I was conducting mount and running. I am very satisfied with its performance. The gripe I have is that after holstering and unholstering my pistol it wore off some of the blu on my trigger guard. The entire time I have had this holster it has never failed me. I couldn't ask for a faster draw or a better holster. Also another thing is that you can buy other platforms to attach your weapon holster too. We shall see what Blackhawk does next.

    Great system that is very stable. It's much more comfortable than the Safariland that I used to wear as it doesn't slide all over or ride up.

    There are a lot of tac holsters out there I've used this 1 for a few years and I like it. Easy draw easy return and with 2 straps you can place it where you want it and it stays.

    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.

    Overall this is a great design. The only fall back is that if you plan on wading or crawling through the muck and the mire, check to be sure that no gunk builds up under the release button. If that happens, your weapon will be no more than an expensive uniform accessory. I've only had to draw my weapon once from this holster in a stress situation and quite frankly, I don't remember having to think about anything at all. The draw was so smooth and natural that my weapon just appeared in my hand. Can't wait to try the level III.

    used this holster for a year in Iraq. The only complaint I have is that it rubbed all the hair off my leg

    I used this in Afghanistan and was a great product. Still use at the range and everything.

    Best tac holster I've had. Difficult to draw when seated in a vehicle and you have to shoot out the window, but those are rare occasions. Stays in place no matter what movement I'm doing and couldn't ask for a quicker draw. Also love the modularity of the platform.

    Only four stars as I have not fully field tested this product. VERY comfortable leg platform that seems to be very modular indeed. I like that items screw into the holes on it instead of being slipped over nylon leg straps as on the various nylon thigh holsters I have used. BLISTERING fast draws that are totally instinctive. Up until I used it for myself I was VERY harsh on this holster, telling friends "Don't get it... it causes ND's." Negative. The finger hitting the trigger is a bad shooter causing ND's no matter who they are or how "good" or "high speed" they are... A "seasoned operator" ensures his finger NEVER finds the trigger on his weapon until he means to hit that launch switch and on that note, any "operator" would only comment on but would never actually utilize any equipment that he has not trained with extensively. Only mall ninjas do that.

    In my line of work, I work with some of the most consummate armed professionals in the world. A lot of my co-workers do state that they are not used to the Serpa system, but they are most certainly operators (WELL SEASONED OPERATORS, at that, me not so much... I've only been there around a year) in the truest sense of the word and they had no problems, nor did they get close to an ND with this system... Most of them now are considering transitioning from the outstanding Safariland 6004's we have to this system... hence why I bought my own.

    Conclusion: Great holster... The ND stuff is merely a training issue.

    Only Complaint: Now must carry my knife on support side which is really no big deal... just a training issue... My oh my, how many times has that come up?

    Watch your 6.

    Great holster. Stays put. Natural draw. Finger always on the frame. Cost effective. And you can STILL USE YOUR HIP POCKET!!!
