+1 Blackhawk Serpa!

The Blackhawk Serpa holsters are modular so you can use the same holster as a owb/belt, owb/paddle, shoulder rig, drop-leg tactical, etc. depending on which "platform" you attach to the back of the holster. Each "platform" also has the capacity for easily adjustment of the cant angle from butt-forward (FBI) to butt-rearward (crossdraw). The Serpa mag pouches, gun light & flashlight holders also attach as modules to the same "platforms" so there's a LOT of versatility to best match your needs & preference.



Blackhawk lists the same Serpa holster fitting the full size M&P, GLOCK G20 & G21. I have one for my G19 and find it an excellent holster. Blackhawk also has selections of ballistic nylon (non-Serpa) drop-leg holsters with a more generic fit (less expensive). Some of these are designed to carry your pistol with the gun light already attached. I like that idea better than trying to install & remove my gun light in the dark to re-holster my pistol.

The Safariland 6000 family are very nice (6004, 6005, 6074, 6274, 6304, 6305). I got a used 6004 for a Glock 20/21 off ebay for $40 and it works great after you take the plastic sleeve off of the tensioning bolt.



The Blackhawk platform is nice. If I had money, I'd probably get a Blackhawk Serpa CQB with the drop leg setup. Fobus makes one that's pretty cheap, and buying stuff made in Israel makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.



Unless you take a lot of carbine classes, or compete in 3 gun, drop legs are pretty limited.



If you have a lot of money, get a Safariland or a Blackhawk. If you're poor like me, I'd get whatever you can find used and cheap. You probably won't use a drop leg as much as you think you might.

The above Blackhawk Ultra is the only holster that I could find that would fit my MP40 with X200. Safariland couldn't provide a date and Bladetech is a month or two out.

I am happy with the Ultra because it is easy to modify. I like my drop to be about three inches below my belt just to clear armor.

How about using a leg holster for hiking??


Interesting idea. I have never tried a leg holster. But that might be an option for me while hunting/hiking. I just might check into that. I don't know; it's hard to beat a nice leather OWB!!!

I do agree with Yukon, but I have a tactical rifle/handgun shoot in April. They ask that you have a thigh holster, so I figured it would be the right thing to do and get one. I am still curious about the difference between level II and level III, hope someone out there can help a brother out...

Retention level one is generally a concealed carry type of holster where the gun just slides in and is held in place by friction. Retention level 2 is friction and a hammer thong. Retention level 3 is all of the previous with the addition of some sort of locking mechanism.

OWB will not work while I'm carrying a nicely loaded backpack. The waistband of the pack would put a lot of pressure on the gun, making it uncomfortable and maybe impossible to draw. I have a shoulder holster on order, but that too will not really work with a backpack. The shoulder straps of the backpack come down close to my sides, right where the gun would sit.

Also, on long hikes with a long gun, the long gun usually ends up banging against my handgun.


Kidding aside, what type of hiking are you doing that you would need to carry a long gun and hand gun? Most state parks don't allow any weapons of any type on premises. I think it would be unusual to see anyone carrying weapons while on a nature hike. But to each his own, I break my Mossberg 590 to pistol grip mode when I camp, just in case. But know that Yukon is out there running around with AR's and stuff, I think I had better revise my weapons policy while camping and hiking...

I hunt public land here in Oklahoma. A few of my sweet spots are a good 2 mile hike. Some more than that.



I always carry a weapon while hiking, camping, or whatever; State park or not.

Concealed means concealed. :wink:



And yes, I love to get naked and run around "out there" with my AR's and stuff!!!

The 6004/6005 w/single strap (or the new ALS 6304/6305 if you need more retention) are the best thigh holsters available. The Serpa is not in the same league...
