    Fair trade?

    I have a co-worker that has asked if I am interested in trading holsters. He has the Glock 19, I have the Glock 23 both guns have identical dimensions.

    The holster he has is the Bianchi Professional 100.

    The holster I have is the BLACKHAWK! Serpa.

    I am on the market for a new IWB holster for the Glock, but I don't know much about Bianchi. Anyone have experience with this holster?

    Bianchi Pro beats the dickens out of the SERPA...no contest. Or, you could see the HOLSTER post about UBG and the coupon code and get a real holster made just for that Glock in about 2 weeks from UBG for a bit less money than you might think. The problem with Bianchi is not that they are bad, but they are made to fit a variety of guns and just don't match up to a custom rig made to fit your particular model. I have two holsters from UBG, and am totally satisfied. Google 'em; I doubt you'll find a bad word said about UBG holsters.

    Actually, this holster is molded specifically for the G19.

    that means it is molded specifically for the Glock 23 too, they are the exact same on the outside.

    Do yourself a favor and get a Crossbreed or Galco King Tuck if you want a good IWB holster. They are lightweight, spread the weight across a larger section of your belt, and are adjustable in many ways. That bianchi is a nice enough holster, but no where near what I call a "good" IWB. I also like the Galco Summer Comfort which is my EDC for my M&P. Both are in the $50 range.

    IMO you will definitely do well if you trade, but at the same time I do not know if I would do it. I think it depends on how much he knows about firearms; tell him first about the potential problems with the Serpa and about why it does not work for everyone, and see what he says. Then, you can go on from there make a decision.

    Don't let the holsters influence you. Decide if you like the gun. I absolutely love my IWB Comp Tac mtac for my G19/26.

    The OP is not talking about trading guns, just about trading hoslters.

    You're asking if it's a fair trade? It's a holster for Pete's sake. Borrow it for a week and decide for yourself.

    I have one, and my biggest objection is that it soon goes flat and is hard to reholster. Mine has been relegated to the used-to-use drawer.

    Reholstering shouldn't be an issue for me. If I ever had to draw my gun in a defensive situation I doubt I would need to hastily reholster, because the gun's staying out until the smoke clears.

    At the range or around the property I'm wearing OWB.
