    Doing ground work and literally ripping SERPAs off of students with my bare hands makes me happy.

    Something I've not had happen to my Safariland, Raven or Cane and Derby holsters. All of which are more than affordable for a person looking at a SERPA. Good point, F2S. I forgot about ground drills and the struggle that ensues in the scramble for the blue gun. It's an eye opener for sure.
    Nothing man-portable is guaranteed to end a fight.

    You mean like what happened to the SERPAs in this video?

    Good post. I have seen those types of failures numerous times. As I stated earlier, the law enforcement academy where I taught previously and the one I'm at now will not allow those holsters through the door. Look carefully folks. If you're using this holster for your duty weapon or as a CCW rig, you're doing yourself a disservice. Start shopping for a replacement. The word has been out on these crappy holsters for years. I can't believe the conversation continues.

    I am with you there man, it just ****ing blows me away these are not only still around but are as popular and vigorously defended as they are, I just donít get it. I agree with your post above regarding ego/embarrassment being a major factor. Get over it people, these holsters are shit.

    I have never had a problem with my SERPA locking up, but I have to say the way to release the gun is counter intuitive. After not using the SERPA for a while it took me several seconds to get my mind together and figure out how to draw from it - luckily this was range time.

    Time to look for something else.


    Can someone summarize the available holster choices that come with a lock?

    We got:
    • Safariland ALS
    • 5.11 Thumb drive
    • What else?

    Go with the Safariland ALS. They have a dozen or so different configurations available. As a direct replacement for the SERPA CQC I would recommend the model #6377/6378

    Another vote for the ALS. It is available in a myriad of configurations and it's built well.

    FYI - Serpa holsters are no longer authorized in my classes

    I am in Pittsburgh this weekend ( July 9-10) and these classes will be the last with Serpas allowed as the students did not get the word in time to change - I have 3 LE students in the class with them

    I am not the first to ban them (Gunsite already has) and I am sure I will not be the last

    Please pass the word to anyone planning on attending one of my classes in the future

    Be safe

    I agree. The Safariland ALS (6360) is the best duty holster that I have used. I highly recommend it.

    For the time being, can't find anything better form any holster maker than a 6360.
    Train at the speed of a gunfight.

    I'm currently running the 6378 and I really like this holster as well. If retention is not a priority, I like my Raven Concealment Holsters just as much.

    I believe they continue to be popular due to them being pretty much standard issue to every member of the armed forces and a lot of LE. And their cheap. And people think Blackhawk is good.

    And that's what blows my mind, the price gap isn't that drastic, unless you happen to be in procurement, in which case it would appear that you must pay for the lot out of salary.

    +1 I don't own one but I've seen lots of pics from Iraq of our Elite forces using them, sooooo.

    I do find it funny that there was one infamous "firearms instructor" who said that no Serpa holsters would be allowed in any of his classes until he became a big time BH dealer. Go fingure.

    I wonder if 1911 users have problems with this holster? They have a safety on the pistol to disengage where other types of pistols don't.
