    Please reconsider SOB. If you get slammed on the ground or up against a wall you could do some serious damage.

    Gotta agree, plus SOB is difficult to wear sitting down, and easy to print bending over.

    I have to agree that SOB holsters are very dangerous to wear.

    But hey, it's your spine and your future possibly in a wheelchair. So good luck with it.

    Hope they both work for ya. I have a SERPA in pebble for my 1911. It seems to work really well.
    Another word of advice, some knowledgable folks in the gun world didn't like the SERPA. Apparently a few LE officers had AD's drawing during high stress situations. Accidently pressing hard on the release and then the trigger. These were with Glock pistols specifically.
    We had a thread with a link to this issue, might be worth reading if you are gonna use a Glock or similar non manual safety gun and a SERPA.

    i will keep it in mind thanks, you can also move it to the strong side and if i get into a strugle that the blade i carry may be used due to the easier access...

    SOB is a seriously bad practice. I would HIGHLY recommend that you reconsider your decision. If you need the firearm while seated (ie a carjacking) you're just gonna die with a gun stuck in your butt crack. As previously stated, if you fall or get body slammed, you're running a high probability of losing a kidney, or sustaining a serious spinal injury. Further, in a close quarters situation, all a BG has to do is rush you and pin you to a wall, and you'll be unable to draw your gun. Again, you'll die with a gun stuck in your butt.
    A strong side has it all over an SOB in every catagory - speed, safety, retention, concealment, comfort, etc.

    Don't sweat it - that's what we're here for. I'm glad to hear that you aren't gonna die with a gun in your butt

    Could you imagine? A gun in your butt and your boots off?

    Kit:
    As someone who already HAS spinal damage, I'm glad you've reconsidered your holster choices. I wouldn't wish this kind of life on anyone, I'm sure many others here would agree. That IWB you've got coming is a nice holster and it should serve you well for a long time to come.

    BTW kittensrtasty, Elf Kitty says you're gettin' a stocking full of poop for Christmas!

    I have to admit this though:

    SOB does LOOK extremely cool... humans just like things to be centered and symmetrical.
