    I am thinking of getting a Safariland 070 SS III holster for my Para- Ordnance P-14-45 and use it for OCing, I want the level III retention that it provides, I am also aware of the fact that I will need to spend a lot of time practicing so I wont have any problems drawing my weapon in the event I need it in an emergency.

    However I am interested in the quality and serviceability of the holster, and any hints on taking care of it that I might have missed, along with any negative opinions that I should be aware of.

    It is a superb duty holster ya can't go wrong with it.

    However, for OC you have better choices as this holster is designed for uniformed LEO use on a duty belt.

    And yes it does require training in the use of the safety features.

    I have a couple of Galco holsters for my 1991-a1 Colt compact that I use for concealed carry, and I've looked at there other holsters and also I have looked at Brigade along with others and haven't found anything that has retention along with good looks.

    So if you have any suggestions please feel free to let me know.Thanks.

    My personal take on retention features in a open cary holster is that it's a training issue and that you do not need anything more than a thumb break on an open carry holster.

    Why would you allow somebody to close with you so they can take your weapon.

    Why are you in condition white & not aware that somebody is stalking you & about ready to grab your weapon.

    If they get close enough to grab your weapon then they are close enough to stick a blade into you & you have already lost.

    Ever fight somebody trying to take your weapon out of a holster, it's a mother humper and kicks your azz.

    I would rather depend on using my brain & good tactics than alowing somebody to get close enough to grab my weapon.

    Take a look at Blade Tech and Comp-Tac holsters, I personally perfer Comp-Tac, but that's just me. http://67.52.203.44/index.html

    Actually Rob is the front man, William Tucker is the artist, he actually refused to make a crossdraw hoslter and matching belt (about $300)for my wifescarry gun because he felt the barrel was too short for this type holster. Iabsolutely agree that a Tucker Gun Leather holster and beltis worth the wait and the price - they area work of art.

    Mjolnir just put up a picture verifying his and my posts.....

    It's not about the condition I walk around in, it's about finding the right holster for OCing my Para, I like leather holsters with a top strap and I like the idea about retention features, my opinion is that open holsters with no strap is only asking for trouble, if I can disarm some one with one then I'm sure there are others that are better then me that can doa better job. but that's not the issue, I'm only interested in a good holster. Thanks for your response

    A "top strap" is justone of manyoptions on most Tucker holsters.
