    Well with the combination of some of you guys ragging on me at the ocasional OC event and the deep discopunts at Quantico Supply I finally bought one of those BlackHawk serpa retention things you guys keep telling me I should have for responsible open carry.

    I am still a little at a loss as to what happened here. The "Old guy fat roll" retention system was good enough for dad and it was good enough for me till now. However lately the retention has been a little better than my strength at over coming it.

    In any case, Quantico Supply has 30% off on everything in the Woodbridge store. It seems they are moving and they need to clear as much as possible out the door. Even their normal LEO discount is only 10%. So the normal price for a CQC Serpa Active retention holster of about $49.00, is now about $35.00. At that price even I could not turn it down. What is really sad is that the holster is actually more comfortable than my leather rig.

    Now of course I will have to go out back, IN THE COLD, and burn a few thousand rounds practicing getting the damn gun unlocked and out of the holster and putting two on target.

    OH WHAT A NIGHTMARE!

    Regards

    Before you guys ask, I have no connection with the store at all. I am just a customer passing on info to help you guys out. Lots of gun stuff, and tactical cloths.

    Isn't a Sherpa a sturdy, long-hairedAsianguy that carries all your chit up a Tibetan mountain while you climb it with relative ease?

    Yes and they are now 30% off if you act quick. They do eat a lot.

    Give me a break. The spell checker can do you just as much harm as it does good. It thinks that "Serpa" should be "Sherpa". Who the "H" am I to argue with a spell checker.

    Incidently, I got a SERPA for my Kimber when I got it. I got one for my daughter's Glock 21SF, too. Hers was only $20 at Bass Pro. I think they may have had them mislabled because whenI went back to get one for my Kimber they were $30

    No shortage of satire here... ever.

    I wonder what kind of holsters Sherpas wear, if any?

    This one doesnt need to carry a gun, or a cop. He does however carry his attorney.

    The twin-engined one holds more, too!
