    Skip the Serpa, get a SafariLand ALS *ducks*
    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    I've ordered both Safariland and Blackhawk (Serpa) products from Cheaper Than Dirt before. Good prices.

    Optics planet has the best prices I have found...

    You've already been told to get a safariland instead... which you should absolutely do... unless you cannot get one for your firearm...



    Alternatively, you can find a serpa for an HK in my trashcan.
    When you put the gun in the holster, put the ego in the gun safe.

    Agreed, that is why we are providing guidance to stay away from Serpa.

    I would, but I traded it for a blackhawk. I'm used to them already, and already have the muscle memory for them so I don't have to relearn my draw.

    For as many people who use the blackhawks everyday, there are very few people getting hurt with them. If they were as big of a danger as people claim, people wouldn't be buying them, the .gov would step in where it doesn't belong again, and blackhawk would be sued out of existence.

    THIS!

    I ordered one for my P99 and I could not for the life of me figureo out why it was rattling around in the holster. Called up Safariland and come to find out they don't make an ALS holster for my P99. The one I bought was made for the P99 before the redesign. That redesign was EIGHT YEARS AGO. I sent it back and bought a Serpa.

    Safariland is severely behind the times.

    I dunno, but I've found a number of instructors who teach CPL and advanced handgun combat training don't allow Blackhawk Serpas anymore, including a guy I know and respect. If you like it, and want to keep using it, and feel safe doing so, more power to you. While I have used them in the past, I've always had problems with the fore-finger button. It doesn't feel natural to me. Then again, I'm used to thumb snaps from duty holsters I've used over my many years working as an armed security officer, so maybe that's why I don't like it that well.

    This conversation sounds vaguely familiar...

    If you make a trip to your local hospital you might be able to find a good used one...

    However if not, check out amazon as well. Or google search it, click the shopping search option and it will bring up a lot of prices and websites you can purchase them from.
    The worst weapon is the human mind, its created and done things far worse than a gun can, has, or ever will. Its the human mind that tells the gun what to do and animates the inanimate object.

    With all these gun control laws in place I have yet to find a single one that has saved someones life, but I can find hundreds of stories where a gun has.

    There was more envy than just holsters that night, but that won't be spoken of!

    Tex Grebner

    The I just Fing shot myself guy.

    I went to Tex Grebners youtube channel, and asked him what he thought about the serpa. He responded.

    ME

    I feel bad about your leg. A lot of people keep blaming your mishap on the choice of holsters. I was wondering,do you blame the shooting on the holster or holster mechanism ? People are using what happened to you as a justification to hate on the serpa design.

    Tex

    I do not like Serpas I gave them a chance and I shot myself while using a sepra, I am not saying that the Serpa is the reason I shot myself but i dont like my trigger finger doing anything but making the gun go bang. i believe a Serpa is a holster of Murphies law. but I dont say dont use them but i dont recommend them to people i like.
