Ghost Tracker said: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.

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.YukonGlocker said: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!!!
