    That's quite a piece you've got there... hard not to envy. Getting new guns is always fun... can't wait till I pick up my Taurus 850B snubby. (only 100 dollars away!!!)

    This may be just me... but I have definitely noticed taht with the CQC Serpa, it rides a lot better on my hip in the paddle format. The weight of the gun tends to pull on my belt too much and slightly stretches it(probably a testament to the quality of my belt but whatever), and the paddle puts all of the weight on your outher thigh. Just a suggestion to you, but the real fun is in playing around with all the different set ups and finding the on that you like best!

    I noticed but refrained from giving you crap about it.

    I can make chainmail belts if you think that'd hold up better.
