    This is a pretty subjective choice, i tried both and settled on the paddle. it supposedly is easier to remove but Blackhawk has done such a good job on design that i cannot get it off except by dropping trou. i still prefer the paddle anyway.

    The paddle holds it a "little" closer to the body. The belt obviously won't get yanked out. The paddle is pretty secure, but when I use it, I prefer the belt.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!

    I much prefer the paddle as well. I like the paddle because the paddle on the holster, to me, stabilizes the gun and actually makes it "bounce" less as I walk. In fact, with the belt nice and tight, the paddle attachment actually allows me to run and the holster and gun do not move at all. Just my 2 cents but I would go with the paddle.

    I have the level 2 for my Glock 19/23 and use it with the paddle. I like the adjustable hooks that hook under the bottom of my belt. With these in place the holster is rock solid and very stable.

    Like others, I prefer the paddle.

    Mines only used at the range now, as it's not the most concealable holster with my body type. My Serpa was a convertible as well, and the only attachment I ever used on it was the paddle.

    I just bought a Blackhawk Serpa concealment CQC, , I really like the paddle as well, but I do have a question, somehwere I read something about a "paddle release" the instructions arent that great. is their a way to adjust the ride height? I carry a taurus PT 1911 in mine.

    I use my SERPA when I OC (summer) or CC with a winter jacket....for me, the belt attachment works for me....IMO, the paddle is best among the paddle holsters out there...+1 swinokur

    I like the Serpa. It's not optimal for concealment but with the right clothing can certainly work to that purpose. The paddle does seem to snug the gun in closer but as others have said, "easy off" isn't one of its virtues.

    I like the paddle attachment too. I modified one of mine by grinding off the "top hook" and removing one of the " bottom hooks" - it still stays on great , but I don't have to drop my pants to take it off.
