BLACKHAWK!

BLACKHAWK?

Best holster on Optics Planet.

Hmmm.  That could be better.  It could be worse, too, I guess.

Wait, is it worse to have a floppy nylon holster, or one with occasional issues with the trigger finger wabbling into the trigger guard on a draw when you push that little release button?  Especially under stress.

I've heard of the locking mechanism getting some grit in there on a BLACKHAWK! and just not letting go.  Which can be a very bad thing, too.

Those are bad things, but there is good things about a BLACKHAWK! holster.  The kydex is pretty strong on these.   There are other brands that can fall apart on you.

A Blackhawk! holster is certainly better than NO holster.  Shove my glock into the waistband of my sweatpants then go hit the clubs?  No thankee.

I still am not happy with the holster options for my new custom 9mm.  But that's what you get when you step off the path.  Glock?  M&P?  J-Frame?  Standard 1911 flavors?  Got PLENTY of holsters to choose from.

You could probably tear a Serpa off its belt mount.

Prolly. It'd be harder to than some of the others in that weight class.

The only thing I use mine for now is place to keep pistols in the dark dry and clean gun safe so there is no accidental tickling of the trigger when reaching for a gun in the back. Hmmm. Thinking.
