    Personally I've never had any worries about the retention on my L2 Serpa. The only use I can see for this is if you're a police officer and are required to have a L3.

    Well...,it does make it nice to OC even when you have a jacket on cuz the jacket just "slips" between the gun and the belt.

    Sure would look nicer when having a shirt/T-shirt or something outside and it doesn't have to wrinkle.

    It's a little bit pricy at $102.99 from Blackhawk, BUT I could get one for my S&W 4006 and make some small modifications.:celebrate

    None for my Kimber:X.

    $80-somethin on Ebay - got to be carefull on sizing - they didnt make any for my SIGMA, so i ordered 1 for a Glock 20/21...not to mention that other retention screw thingy will help out small frame guns..

    Yea Tj, a bit pricey though, i agreed. COOL though!

    Does the duty belt attachment on it still allow it to go on a standard belt? I don't know if I'd like how low it rides either.

    Of course, I'm thinking about this again, maybe it has to ride that low for a good draw. It doesn't have the speed cut like the L2 so the end of the barrel must completely clear the top of the holster before it can be pointed forward. With the high ride of the L2 a full sized pistol would be in my armpit before I could clear the holster.

    Yeah, I wouldn't get that unless I were LE and my department made me. I like the level 2 so much better. To each there own I guess.

    We should put out an ad.

    Did you inherit an evil firearm?
    Call the gun disposal team!
    We will take any firearm, and send it to its proper resting place. (My gun safe. )
    HURRY! Call now! Before that evil World War II relic does any more damage.

    I have figured out L2 & L3, what would an L1 be?

    I carry in a Fletch with a snap. Is that L1 or L2?

    Level 1 is tension only, like in most IWB holsters.

    Well, the levels aren't really that well defined. According to everyone except Blackhawk, the levels are a count of the devices that have to be unlocked to release the gun so that you can pull it from the holster.

    By that standard, the level 2 SERPA is actually level 1, and the the level 3 SERPA is actually level 2. Compare this with Safariland's holsters, for example. Drawing from a Safariland level 3 requires (1) disengaging one lock with your thumb, (2) disengaging another lock with your index finger and (3) rocking the gun forward to disengage a third, internal lock.

    By Blackhawk's reckoning, your holster is a level 2 if the gun fits snugly, and a level 1 if you need the snap to keep it from falling out.

    "......According to everyone except Blackhawk, the levels are a count of the devices that have to be unlocked to release the gun so that you can pull it from the holster.........By Blackhawk's reckoning, your holster is a level 2 if the gun fits snugly, and a level 1 if you need the snap to keep it from falling out......"
    So Blackhawk is technically ripping ppl off...

    I would agree, if the holsters weren't so good.

    They work great and are very secure.
