    This holster is great! With training my draw time is way faster. I'm wearing it to qualify tonight and I'm excited about it! The draw stroke is very simple and very smooth. Overcoming the retention devices is very natural. Just acquire a normal shooting grip and my weapon glides out easily and quickly out onto target. I replaced an Uncle Mikes duty holster. Boy am I glad that I did!!!!! The Serpa platform is way faster!! And more durable. It rides lower on my duty belt which speeds up my draw. The holster's lower position on my belt gives me a definite mechanical advantage over a higher riding speeding up my draw through efficiency of motion. The top hood covers and protects my rear sight from bumps. The postal service delivered it to the wrong address twice and sent it back. My other holster had failed and I had it taped together. I hate that!! No one in Kansas City had a professional level 3 duty holster that would fit my Springfield XDM 9mm. This meant I would have to wait another 10 days or more to get a holster on my belt that I could trust. (Thats huge for me working down in the hood!!!!). I called LA Police gear and told them my situation and they sent me a holster expedited next day delivery to Kansas City at no extra charge Excellent holster!! EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! THANKS LA POLICE GEAR!!
    Rides lower on belt, faster draw, excellent retention, protects weapon, Excellent customer service!

    Bought for duty holster due to Level 3 retention. Took about 5 min of practice to get a smooth draw and reholster. XDM fits snug. Excellent holster.

    The Level 3 is a really great Holster. The thumb switch takes some getting used to but once you do, it just feels natural the way the grip gets lined for the draw. Totally worth it.

    great duty holster and a great price.
    very well built, very comfortable and easy to use, even as a level 3 holster, was considering the level 2, but glad I bought this one. would recommend this item to anyone looking for a great holster.

    As advertised
    May 6, 2014
    I went from the Blackhawk level 2 serpa holster to this level 3 so far not much of a challenge. I have had the level 2 for a few years. I am pleased with the performance of the level 2 and expect the same from this holster.
    Quality of the product and ease of use.
    I have not found any.

    Secure and Quick
    February 27, 2014
    First time using it was at the departments range qualification(Glock 23). Was worried that not being used to it and having my winter gear on would slow me down. It performed with ease allowing me to draw smoothly and get on target quickly.
    Great retention and smooth draw.

    The ideal tactical holster

    The dual retention mechanisms on this Serpa holster keeps your weapon secure regardless of what punishment you put it through. Superior product of the highest quality.

    Level 3 for Glock 22
    September 5, 2013
    I have the same holster for a Glock 21 and loved it. Wen I received my new holster (after waiting over 3 weeks) for a Glock 22 it was incredibly difficult to put on my duty belt. I will not order this holster again.
    It still offers great security for your gun.
    Long back-order and poor quality control.

    Fast and secure
    April 29, 2013
    I've been carrying a Glock in a safariland ssIII for almost 13 years, but never really loved it. As holsters became more modernized I started to wonder why I was still using it. I never felt great about the speed of draw even with years and years of use. It also sat so high that to clear the holster the butt of the gun was practically in my armpit. Decided to give this a try based on my good experience with several serpa paddle holsters, and I'm glad I did. I put it on my duty belt and did maybe 20 practice draws, and went to qualify the next day. We did some firing from a seated position as well and boy was I glad I had the serpa. This thing is seriously fast. My one warning is if you tend to wear your belt low on your waist you may have an issue with the gun sitting too low and pushing up on the seat of the car. But there are high and mid mounts available anyway. For me, it's just right, sits about 3 inches lower than my old ssIII. Does cause some discomfort when sitting crooked to type on the computer, but that's the only negative. I feel much better about my ability to respond quickly with this, so well worth it.

    Excellent for safety

    This product is now a requirement for the security agency I work for. The double lock system makes it much harder for a subject to get hold of your gun. I love the added measure of security this provides as compared to other holsters. My gun fits perfectly in the holster, too. It takes a little practice to get used to, but totally worth it!

    Is the Smith & Wesson M&P 40 COMPACT compatible with this holster?
    on November 6, 2012

    This holster will fit a S&W M&P 40C. There will be extra room at the bottom. You can see a video here.

    Can a Blackhawk Paddle be attached to the Serpa L3 holster. I want to wear under shirt, on hip, for concealment purposes. Thank you in advance.
    on August 1, 2013

    Yes, the Level 3 Serpa Holster can be attached to the CQC Paddle.

    What is the difference between the Matte and the Plain Black finish? Is one or the other pictured above?
    on May 2, 2013

    To see the difference between Plain and Matte you will have to look at the Basketweave holster shown in the second picture. The part that is Backetweave will have a plain piece of leather on the "Plain" finish version and the "Matte" version will just be plastic as shown in the first picture.

    Do you make a level 3 for a glock 30

    Will this or do you have a Blackhawk hoster work for a glock 35 with a rail attached light?
    on November 26, 2012

    This Serpa Holster cannot fit a Glock with a weapon light, you will need to search out site for BPG-44H5, that will bring up the Level 3 Serpa Holster that will hold a Glock with a weapon light. We have seen a video that shows a Glock 35 fitting into the holster made for the Glock 17/22 (Model 44H500). However, this holster will only accommodate a Blackhawk Xiphos Weapon Light.
