    I would pick the Safari Land first then the Blackhawk Serpa. the Serpa allows you to still have access to your pockets while wearing it this is the holster i use for work and it is very comfortable to boot.

    Are you looking for a concealed deal, or a drop rig like tactical timmy's?

    I'd go with the second. Mine has a "bungee" type cord that slips over the hammer. not good for fast deployment, but the gun stays in place.

    I have tried the cheap nylon ones for range days... naturally they were all junk. I now use a Safariland at work... for those "bad days at work". It's backed with a synthetic suede material and stays put if you tighten it down enough. Staying put is the problem with all drop holsters though. The model (6004 SLS) I use has 2 nice 1 1/2 quick disconnect buckles. You will have to buy a $10.00 part to lock the over the rotating hood, otherwise it's easier for a BG to disarm you.

    Oops... I may have been mistaken. Are you talking concealed carry or not? Obviously I'm not! Ha Ha Ha.

    That first picture, I believe, is the thigh holster from Galco.

    That is the Galco thigh band holster. I have no experience with thigh holsters, so I can't be of much more help.

    I have no expirience with them myself, but I do wear a kilt on occaission.

    I would look at something like the Galco Holster and a Belly Strap that connects to the holster, sort of like a Garter. That way it would help to ensure that your holster stays put.

    Just an idea, good luck.
