Had to work yesterday and today, and I'll be at it again, tomorrow. So, not much time to post.
But, I did get one full day before going back to work to wear the holster all day, again. I removed the paddle attachment and used the belt attachment piece. This did NOT seem to irritate the nerve!
I'll put the paddle back on, my next day off (Friday,) and see if it does it again. Maybe just a slight re-positioning will do it. I do kind of like the idea of being able to slip the holster off quickly in a low-profile manner. Otherwise the belt-carry will work.
The guys at Blackhawk Products say that actually will have a shoulder rig available for the SERPA Retention holsters in about 60 days! Even if the belt or paddle works out, I think I'll get one just to have the option available.
Between the Fobus and the Blackhawk, I much prefer the Blackhawk for its pushbutton retention system and the holster's carbon fiber construction. I'm not certain, but that holster with the SERPA Retention just might allow for a one-handed re-holster, too (while in a shoulder rig.)

Don Hume, Galco, Safariland, Bianchi, and leather from the custom leathersmiths within the Forum are good choices

Not true. I use Fobus for most of my carry guns. I have one for both of my Taurus semi-autos, one for my .45. I'll likely get one for my Bersa as well. The best one is for my Taurus PT-911. It was designed for the PT-940, but since both guns are built on the same frame, it works for the 911 just fine.
