    5.11 Thumb Drive

    I went back 10 pages looking for a thread on the 5.11 Tactical Thumb Drive. I'm looking for a holster for a Glock 17 or a 22, I haven't decided on which model yet, but looking for a open top serpa or maybe the 5.11 holster? Anybody have one? Are they good or bad?

    Lots of folks have a SERPA, including me, but I suspect that's more because of it's wide availability than anything else. It does have a drawback that can bite you in the butt (see Tex Gerbner's video.)

    For the same price, I highly recommend a Safariland ALS or SLS style holster. A 6377 or 6378 is the same price, or LESS than a SERPA

    That's just because he was an idiot and put his finger in the trigger well. We used SERPA holsters when I was in the Army and they worked pretty well.

    Safariland ALS is bar none the best. It has a very natural transition from thumb snaps to the release on this.






    Oh yea, don't use the SERPA. You are guaranteed to shoot yourself in the leg.

    I agree, check out Opticsplanet.com for the best prices on Safariland holsters. I haven't found them any lower.

    I use a 5.11 Thumb drive holster for my Glock35. It's actually really good once you get used to it. It may not look too fancy, just a plain poly holster. I haven't had any issues with the thumb system.
    Nothing better than a Glock.........except maybe another Glock!

    I'm not sure if you're referring to the same thing, but I had to Google it. I kept wondering what the importance of a tactical flash drive could be. I'm a bit slow, but now I get it.
