New paddle holster for my RIA comapct

I just bought one of the new SERPA holsters from Blackhawk. I absolutly love it. Its fits so tight there is no way someone can grab your gun from you, and the relase button leaves your finger right along the frame in perfect postion. For 40$ you cant beat it. At first it looked like it might be uncomfortable, but on the contrary it is extremly comfortable. Its sized for a Colt commander, so it was about 1" or so to long, but I cut off 1/2" off the bottom and sanded it down at it looks great and fits the 1911 compact perfect now. I attached a pic.

No input? lol. Was wondering if anyone has one and what they think about the new SERPA carbon CQC concealment holster, it also came with just a belt loop instead of the paddle...I like the paddle much better, fits tight.

I have these for G19/26/34, another for G21/20 and one for 1911. They are all great OWB and hold firearms really well. Good purchase, I think I paid less but in the same neighborhood.

I have a Serpa for a Beretta 92 and its a pretty well made OWB holster.

A similar designed holster that is very inexpensive, yet surprisingly well made is the one CDNN sells under the Target Sports brand.

I recently bought one for the 1911 to use as a cheap mount and found out its actually pretty well made. It holds the gun in tight yet is smooth to draw and reholster from, it fits very well on my Wilderness belt and can be adjust for cant too.

1911 Forums

They call the brand Israeli Tactical but its defiantly not made by Fobus nor is the plastic flimsy. I originally doubted its quality since the price was so low but its a much better holster than you would initially think.

Besides Don Hume (my favorite concealment holster maker), Blackhawk's Serpa is my go-to open carry holster. I have one for my G34/G19, Beretta 92, and 1911. Still need one for my G21 (I have a Fobus for it).

I've gone away from blackhawk. I found that they leave two distintive marks, just forward of the chamber hood where they rub. Not a big deal on a taurus, different story on $1100 Kimber. And the marks are still there. I was so mad I tossed it out.

I have gone to the Safariland ALS holsters, they also keep the finger away from the trigger on the draw in a stressful situation.

Different strokes for different folks. I really like my SERPA, for me, it works. Ive done some tactical training with it and am very impressed with not only how secure and comfortable it fits but the speed of draw is great and your trigger finger is exactly where it should be after the gun clears the holster. There are alot of great holsters on the market today, and the SERPA is one of those, especially if your main concern is comfort and speed of draw.
