    As in SERPA? I love mine. I don't use it to carry concealed, but it has its purpose and serves well.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    I was unaware that Blackhawk made an IWB CQC holster.

    They do make an IWB but I'm not familiar with it. The CQC is actually a paddle/owb convertible SERPA holster. I have one for my XD45 and absolutely love it.

    I just picked up their pancake holster, seems pretty nice, although I would prefer a sweat guard on it.

    I havent been overly impressed with anything Blackhawk just yet. The Serpa's are OK, but I think there is better out there in the same class of holster.

    I have a blackhawk serpa holster but not for conceal carry. It is a good holster for the range though. I do not have experience with their iwb holsters though.

    Can you please give some examples because I was considering a CQC but I'd like to see some good alternatives before I make a purchase.

    I believe a couple trainers won't permit them SERPA holsters in their classes anymore because the design is a safety hazard (apparently doesn't lend itself to easily drawing under SHTF stress, where you're more likely to press with the tip of the finger than lay the finger along the length of that release button). We've got a Safariland with ALS and it's a great holster all around (though the Raven Concealment gets more face time).

    Ugh.

    They bought the excuse their student gave them for their ND. I have trained under three instructors. All three carry the Serpa and recommend it to their students. It's how I decided to buy mine.

    If we applied the same standard - two ND's = a flawed design, then I would argue that few or possibly no holsters on the market would be safe. Plenty of people have had ND's (or AD's if you want to be nice to them) drawing from many different manner of holsters.

    If you've used a Serpa holster you know that a correct draw from retention places your finger against the frame above the trigger guard, not in the trigger guard.

    I used to carry a Blackhawk Serpa extensively off-duty. Then I noticed odd gouges and scrapes on the slide of my Glock. It turns out the kydex began to wear in two spots on the inside of my holster and actually began to scratch up my Glock. I will never carry one of their products again.
