There are a lot of debates on which hard holsters are better. Currently we carry G-Code holsters and BlackHawk! SERPA holsters. I am going to give you my opinion based on my experiences and you can decide for yourself. Before we begin, let me give you my background.
My name is Andrew and I have been playing airsoft since 2006. Over the years, I have been to numerous operations and countless weekend games. More importantly, I have been a firearm enthusiast since 2009. I currently own an AR-15 (M4) and 2 handguns, Glock 17 and Kimber 1911. I have firearm training sessions frequently, almost once per month. I also participate I.D.P.A (International Defensive Pistol Association) and I.P.S.C. (International Practical Shooting Confederation). I have used both BlackHawk! SERPA holsters and G-Code holsters during those firearm training sessions and matches and found the advantages and disadvantages on both brands.
BlackHawk! CQC SERPA
After extensive research, BlackHawk! was founded in 1993 by a former U.S. Navy SEAL. BlackHawk! is a manufacturer of tactical gear, body armor, and law enforcement duty gear, holsters, hydration systems, protective gloves and gear, apparel and footwear, knives, illumination tools, breaching tools, hunting gear and recoil reducing stocks.
BlackHawk! CQC SERPA holster series first hit the market in 2004, and because of its revolutionary retention system, it quickly attracted everyone in the shooting community, including military and law enforcement around the world. The holster is injection molded from a high strength polymer, therefore it is durable.
