I'm not sold on the SERPA mechanism yet, but I do like the other BH CQC products, I think the regular CQC holster is a pretty good rig.
This is a discussion on Are these ANY good? BLACKHAWK Serpa CQC Holster BLACK LH 1911 within the Defensive Carry Holsters & Carry Options forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; TIA...
I use them mounted to the underside of my desk & end table to hold a handgun out-of-sight. They work pretty well for that. I'm not a fan of Kydex for carry, I like leather for that.

If you carry a gun, some will call you paranoid. If I carry, what do I have to be paranoid about? -C Smith

I've used the SERPA for my last two deployments....never had a problem with them working--I used a belt holster and a chest-mounted rig...will use it again on my next deployment.
ETA: While the SERPA is a good retention holster, it is not conducive to deep concealed carry in warmer months. It would be a good holster for winter (covered by a coat/larger shirt) or open carry.
What is the purpose of the holster?....CC or OC?

You have never lived until you have almost died. For those that have fought for it, life has a special flavor the protected will never know
I like them. I have one for my G33, it works well for the G23 as well. I can hide it under a loose shirt, though not always easy.
Keep in mind the "LH" stands for "Left Hand", which isn't that good if you're right handed...
Knowing is half the battle.
Here's a picture of mine (RH) in crossdraw. The system allows for a lot of custom configuring. It works very well, but it does stick out just a bit more than I like.
Would I buy another? Sure would.

Don’t mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

Thats the first holster I bought for my 1911. I never use it now. I don't cc my 1911 much anymore. And that holster sticks out to far for me.
