    • Purchased for Backpacking
      Reviewer: Del Bancroft

      11/29/2016

      I purchased 2 of these. One for my wife and the other for myself. We enjoy photography and have chest mounted camera holsters, which is why we went to this option. They work great and keep our handguns protected from the brush and dirt while still easily accessible. The only reason for a 3.5 star is the circular disconnect clips. Three of the four clips are a pain to get clipped together. I have similar clips on my scuba gear and I have no problem disconnecting and reconnecting while on the move underwater.

      I work as a Security Guard for two companies - one of them is at a Government location, the other is not. The second location has me sometimes working Armed, sometimes Unarmed (depending on the client) - so my duty belt has to be quickly changeable. Not knowing I would be working both situations, I initially purchased the Blackhawk SERPA level 3 holster that attaches directly to your duty belt. I've had no problems with it, but it was starting to damage both my duty belt, and the holster, taking it off/putting it on every day (and sometimes twice a day) - so I purchased this version. Problem(s) solved. Like all drop-leg holsters, it can be slightly more difficult to get to the weapon in a vehicle, or sitting down in a deep chair, but overall it is very nice. That said, I absolutely prefer this one to the duty belt version: the other one, during the break in period (less than 1,000 holsters/draws) tends to 'stick/bind' because the tolerances are so tight, and the draw pulls the handle towards the body - this one doesn't have that issue. Even with a level 3 holster, I still use a lanyard (aka "dummy cord") which attaches nicely to this holster. Old habits (US. Army) die hard. I definitely plan to get some magazine holders that attach to this holster via drilled holes on both sides, as there has never been a situation where someone has had too much ammunition in a fire fight.

      I have a few Serpa holsters but not a level 3. I wear this when hiking in the hills, and like the added security at the top, plus the side lock. I carry loaded and like the serpa configuration, so this was a plus for me.

      I purchased this holster, it is for a 9 mm pistol. I have the Ruger SR45, which, after proper adjustment, fits in the holster perfectly. For quick draw, piss pore, to many safety features to pass through, but to keep from loosing the pistol while going through an obstacle course, this holster can't be beat, no one can take this pistol out of your holster, without you allowing them to, otherwise, they are meeting resistance - mine!

      Matt, we're so glad you're happy with the holster, but are sad to hear that you had a bad experience with the shipment! Orders generally ship within one to two days of receipt, but some of manufacturer's warehouses are faster than others. Please don't hesitate to contact our Customer Relations team, and we'll see how we can help make this right for you!

      I used this holster in a tactical 2 pistol class, and it functioned perfectly. Has an additional security feature which I wasn't aware of that is located next to the hammer, and basically locks the pistol into place. This worked especially well for me as I was involved in drills that required a lot of movement, including laying flat and rolling. The holster stayed in place, was easy to locate after only a couple draws without looking, and the pistol "snapped" into place perfectly. Highly recommend this holster to any LEO and/or enthusiast who is seeking a tactical thigh holster for training.

      Reviewer: Godfrey1988

      4/1/2012

      This is a great holster system and great build quality. You can add 2 mag pouches to this system in addition to the holster. There are 2 locks on this holsters, one controlled by the thumb and one by the index finger to ensure the pistol doesn't fall out. Easy to use. I purchased a cheap leg holster and this SERPA is leagues ahead. I wish Blackhawk made a holster for the P229 + tactical light

    • M9 Holster
      Reviewer: Phoenix X

      3/15/2012

      I didn't know the L3 had the top cap, which is my fault for not looking at all the pictures. It does add an additional degree of retention but I don't feel it's completely necessary. I was using my buddies L2 previously and the extra thumb release for the extra retention point doesn't complicate the draw motion at all which is great. The L3 sits further away from my leg when compared to the L2 so weight distribution isn't as comfortable. I don't know about other models but the M9 must be reholstered with the hammer down in order to re-engage the top cover/additional retention. I hope (but do not know) this is not the case for 1911 style holsters. Overall a practical, functional holster, especially if extra safety or retention is a concern. Would probably buy a L2 if shopping again, but until this one fails I will continue to use it.

      This combo set up is very nice. I bought it more for the holster, but since this combo was cheaper then buying both separate. Just another spot to hold the weapons.

      I just got this holster in today. I do a lot of personal defense training and (self training, not teaching) and have had other tac holsters in the past. I decided to try Blackhawk because I have one of their vests, and love it, so why not try the holster. I'm glad I did. It's got a good feel to it, and it doesn't hinder if you're sitting or crouching while wearing it. The design is an absolute home run. I'd definitely recommend this to others, and will be buying more Blackhawk Serpa in the future.
