Serpa CQC for S&W M&P 40

by neobob, from United States, WA Written on August 31, 2014
I considered this holster for a long time. So much to think about: Will it fit correctly? Will it function right? Will it turn me into a cripple wearing the thing? I was so overwhelmingly pleased when when these questions were answered: Yes, Yes & No! I use the holster exclusively with the paddle for concealed carry.
With so many models covered by this holster, one might expect it to fit well, but maybe not perfect. With my M&P 40 it was perfect! Besides what you would expect, fit function and usability there are a couple of unadvertised features. 1. The retention hooks really do keep the holster from working out of your waistband. 2. The paddle warms to body temp and takes on a molded to your body feel. Also, there is very little bulk, so it you don't feel like you have a lump on your hip. 3. I have the holster set to a forward angle and it keeps my gun snugly to my side reducing any profile against my outerwear.
Even with its close feel, it draws very smoothly, doesn't mar or leave residue on my gun and feels very secure. I've seen other reviewers claim the release mechanism doesn't hold up, I guess I find out later as I've only had the unit a few months. But at this point, I'm completely satisfied with the product and Optics Planet's great price and ordering system got it to me without fuss. A few weeks with this one and I wanted to buy another....
Pros:
  • Ease of use
  • Functionality
  • Fit well
  • Price performance quality
Cons:
  • None.
Best Used for:
  • Concealed Carry (Winter/Fall)

excellent product

by Fredo, from United States, FL Written on August 29, 2014
Works perfectly, love it. Essentially the same holster as my duty holster. Weapon doesn't get snagged and the holster can be adjusted to fit the weapon more snugly. The paddle attachment is also very nice....

BlackHawk CQC - SERPA Holster

by hiltyga, from United States, GA Written on August 29, 2014
I purchased the CQC Serpa holster for my Springfield XD-45ACP. I wanted a holster that provided options depending on what I was wearing. The Blackhawk Serpa model did the trick. It comes with both a belt and Paddle attachment. Both are highly adjustable in terms of cant and ride height. The retention system is excellent. Despite some of the @#$%! that you might read or see on YouTube, if you are trained to keep your trigger finger out of the trigger once drawn, you should have no problem. Draw is fast and simple. So is the re-holstering. Materials are well made and high quality. Just make sure you order the correct holster for your gun. I received something other than what I ordered and had to send it back in exchange for the correct model. I can see where this might happen as there are so many different models with similar product codes. I would highly recommend the CQC Serpa for someone looking for a solid fit, excellent retention, but still have the ability to quickly draw your gun when needed....

Gun owner with CCW

by JB, from United States, IL Written on August 12, 2014
After watching u-tube video on this product, it does exactly what is says. Retension is awesome. Draw is natural as long as you are in habit of extending index figure while reaching with master grip. Tried it and trust it on the range and in tactical maneuvers. Priced right....

Greatest holster ever made

by CHL0908, from United States, TX Written on August 8, 2014
This holster is exactly what I wanted in a CCW holster. It holds the weapon firmly and is very easy to draw with the trigger finger already in the ready position along the slide. I use this every day and do not know ow any other holster will take the place of this one. Blackhawk holsters are king and Optics planet.com is the place to get them and other accessories....

As described...

by CautiousKen, from United States, CA Written on July 30, 2014
Easy to use. The Paddle and Belt interchangeable- +. Wish it had a greater holster angle ability- would add to greater versatility of cross-draw and small of the back positioning. Still, very good, useful, adjustable [limited]. Would purchase for other handguns as needed....

You can never go wrong with a Serpa CQC

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on November 22, 2013
I own 5 Serpa CQC holsters. Why? They work. Their retention is awesome. Swipe 1 finger as you go to pull and it is unlocked. I can use them on a standard belt, molle, battle belt, chest right, thigh rig, etc. Just need the proper attachment. Molded plastic makes it safe, secure, protected from bumps and hits and easy to draw and holster as it slides right in and out. It is the ONLY holster I will use if available for my pistol. They do not make one for the Ruger SR9c, only the SR9, but there are videos on YT that show how to cut it down to fit an SR9c perfect (just cut off excess material). Love these holsters.
Pros: light weight, great retention, modular
Cons: not made for every possible gun...
