I just wondered what level of retention everybody uses.

level 1 when CCing.
Level 1 or Level 2 Opening carrying. All depending, but no more than Level 2.
If I thought I needed more than Level 2 then I am CCing Level 1.

Thumb breaks, SERPA type locks ect.
When doing harder physical activities where chances of losing a firearm are higher a lanyard is also useful.

CCW friction and concealment. OC SERPA with trigger guard latch, adjustable friction and straight draw required.

Welcome to OCDO nshaw, I hope you enjoy your stay. Good info from a great number of knowledgeable individuals and a few smart a$$ comments from perpetual whiners.
Always ask the question, nothing, that is nothing is dumb if you need info.
"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington
When I CC or OC during humid weather I use a Safariland ALS holster (Synthetic lined with suede with the thumb-release that locks into the ejection port.). I'm either carrying a hard-chromed 1911 commander or a Glock 19, and I find this holster to be comfortable and very secure. For dressing up or 'Sunday BBQ' carry I have a floral-carved El Paso Double Agent (for the commander)holster, leather, suede lined, with a tension screw at the trigger guard. Very comfortable, and it has dual slots so I can carry it strong-side or cross-draw. It's level 1 (friction) retention, so I guess if someone grabbed at it there could be a potential loss of the weapon.
