    Seeking OWB "Activity" holster for BHP

    I'd like a holster that met the following criteria:
    • OWB, belt or paddle
    • Fits a standard Mk III Browning Hi-Power
    • Similar in position and cant to my everyday MTAC (mid-ride, forward cant)
    • Active retention, level I-II
    • Allows 1-hand reholstering
    • Fully covers muzzle
    • Not so nice that I'd be devastated if it scraped against a tree
    • Preferably inexpensive, since it won't be used often


    I'd use this in a scenario where I might be hiking or working outdoors where I wanted the comfort of OWB and additional protection and retention for the gun. I might also use it while at the range or at classes not focused on concealed carry where IWB is discouraged.

    Any ideas other than "get a Glock, everything fits them"?

    If you can find one to try, I'd take a look at the Blackhawk SERPA for a 1911, my HP fits in all my 1911 holsters, other than that I don't think you'll have much luck finding exactly what you're looking for as there aren't that many duty rigs (most if not all "retention" holsters are duty rigs) out there for the BHP, but I could be wrong, Bianchi does have a paddle for the BHP

    Excellent. I had completely missed the Bianchi and that particular Safariland. Never occurred to me to try the 1911 SERPA either.

    Thank you!

    To follow up for anyone interested, I found a 1911 SERPA at a local shop over lunch today and tried my Hi-Power in it. The gun slid in nicely, clicked into place, looked good and stayed snug...

    Then it took two people and a screwdriver to get it out. Wasn't quite looking for that much retention!

    OWB or Paddle

    I have a paddle holster from Comp-Tac. I bought the FBI forward cant model. It is a great holster. Easy to draw and holster. Tension is adjustable.

    Thanks
