    Those of you that OC:

    What level of security is your holster and what means (thumb break, hood, button/latch)?

    What personal combatives training and what combatives system for holstered retention do you use (Krav Magra, Lindell)?

    Well I have found thisto work well for me. A leather OWB Bianchi 82 colt officer with spring / lever trigger guard retention clip contraption.. It's formed to the Pro carry but I also have a EAA Witness .40 that locks in nicely.

    Is it snatch proof? maybe not but it's a huge atvantage if you have to bring an elbow around to clear things out...

    My combative skillz are based in Judo as a kid so I can survive falls as an old man today. Being said, I have taken a spill or two (mainly while hiking to the killer "fishing hole") and my side arm has never gotten loose (or wet, yet)

    The only thing I don't like is that it sucks the oil from the metal and dries it out. I haven't waxed it yet but have really considering it lately.

    I carry in a Serpa for retention. Level 2. Tension adjustable (Lev1) and a forefinger lock (Lev2).

    For defense against a grab I carry a knife clipped in my weakside pocket with the concept of trying to retain/regain control of the firearm with the strong hand/arm whilst turning away from the threat, drawing the knife and preparing to sink it into whatever is there.

    Grabs are a possibility but next time you see LEO or someone OC'ing imagine coming up behind them and trying to grab their carry. No thanks... I still prepare for the possibility but I think it a highly unlikely event.
