    Have the belt but never tried the paddle, but the belt works good just not good for CCW..sticks out from body too much for me. Ok under a heavy jacket.
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    I use the Serpa holster downrange for the M9, it can be mounted on your kit, on your hip or in a thigh holster so the versatility is nice. It serves it's purpose while deployed but I wouldn't try to conceal carry with it back in the states.

    Oh and when it's on my hip I use the paddle not the belt.

    They're OK.

    We actually used 'em with our M9's while on active duty in the drop-leg configuration. They worked but they had their drawbacks too. I wouldn't use one for any kind of concealed carry sidearm but it'd be an option I'd seriously look at in an open carry setup... and don't open carry all that often.

    Nope. My thinking is that the trigger finger should be for the trigger and not much else.

    I always carry concealed, and there are much better options and configurations than what the Serpa offers.

    I have one and its my range holster for a Full Size PX4 Storm..
    Also its a Great Open carry holster..
    Especially with the serpa technology for added theft protection.
    The difference between the paddle is it will pull in a little closer to your body..
    You could pull it off CC sorta with an overshirt
    Or for sure with a bigger jacket..And would work perfect.
    But other than really just a range/open carry holster..
    I love mine..And I went over this awhile ago on another thread I posted..
    The holster is as dangerous as the person operating it..Learn the mechanism,learn the proper way to use it..
    And keep your holster clean,so no debris are in there...
    Bottom Line great holster
    paching and oldranger53 like this.

    There have been too many NDs due to the finger being too dang close to the trigger - with force applied - as the gun is unholstered. Several trainers will not allow them in their classes for that very reason.

    I've been looking at these for full-size OWB carry while hiking and at the range. Interesting comments about the ND's when actuating the retention release though. I might have to look at some type of thumb break instead. Thanks for starting this thread. In for the updates.

    I use a Serpa with the quick disconnect kit in my car. That's it, otherwise I use Crossbreed IWB.
    I don't always carry two concealed S&W 500's.........JUST KIDDING!

    I like mine for holstering at the range, open carry, but I think its terrible for concealment...even though they say that's what they are for. They stick out too far. I've never attempted to use the paddle, so I can't really say much for that. I like them, but not for every day use.

    Update to my post, I've seen enough to look elsewhere for the time being:
