    When I'm at work I carry my Glock 22 in a level III Serpa. When I first bought the holster I did not adjust the tension screw at all because when I tried it, I was not able to get my gun out of the holster. As I've become more adept with the holster, I have adjusted the tension screw a little at a time gradually until it is cannot be turned any more. Now my holster is a true level III. My question to all of you who use Serpa holsters is how tightly are you able to adjust the tension screw while still being able to draw your weapon relatively easily?

    I think both of mine are maybe 1 turn back from fully tight.

    Mine is set so that it just Barely Does Not hold the firearm in when upside down and the lever is pressed, 1/16th of a turn makes a difference.

    Mmm, honestly? I had to loosen mine all the way to get a clean pull.

    I'm using one of the lefty 1911 holsters, FWIW, though.
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.
