Wow thats some Scary but good infoMark Garrity said:I couldn't read the link either, but I know that there have been numerous accidental discahrges with this holster due to the trigger-guard locking mechanism. Apparently it's very prone to an AD if not drawn and reholstered at exactly the right (for that holster) angle. Several of the top notch training schools and ranges around the country will not permit this holster on their range. And I've talked to a few of these instructors and they do not feel it's a training issue or operator error but rather a hardware/equipment problem.
rocky said:Rob72, can you cut and paste the info? At least the highlights? I have heard a few complaints about the SERPA holsters, but cannot imagine how the holster could cause the gun to fire. I feel as long as I maintain correct trigger disipline , I will not accidently AD my gun. So far ,I have seen no info that could directly be blamed on the holster.
Honestly, I can not see the Glock short trigger even being set off by a reholster , but then again , I do not own a Glock either. I did hear of 2 cases of Glocks firing out of the SERPA holsters, but the poster seemes anti SERPA and quite biased.Bud White said:Wonder if its the glock's going Boom
Yeah, that's Gomez's post. To me, the essential point was that it might not be the rig you want if you scrabble around on the ground much. Also, unlike any other maker's current offerings, the SERPA requires the "claw" motion with the index finger to release- I can see where that could lead to an "oopsie", in the heat of the moment.Blackhawk6 said:
