This holster is fast. Level three never felt so good. I'm an LEO and for the past four years now have been trying to figure out how to move from level two without giving up speed of draw. I've found it now and then some. I actually believe I picked up speed.
I was using a Safariland holster with the rotating hood, and this is much smoother and safer. I ordered the basketweave with the light combo. The item came exactly as described from Optics Planet. As a side note, it actualy was delievered a full day earlier than expected! Way to go!
Light is bright and fits in the holster perfectly. Any other brand of light will not fit for sure. The light that fits from blackhawk sits about 1.5 cm off to the side to allow for the finger release of the holster since the release is where the on/off switch for a surefire or other brand sits.
In case you're a little tight with finances, this holster will work fine without the light and keep your weapon secure, giving you the opportunity to buy this holster and then purchase the light down the road if you need to.
If you have been wondering about this holster, think about it no longer. This is a great secure holster! Optics planet is the cheapest price out there for this too!
One quick side note, this is a low rise holster, I have called Blackhawk direct and they sell a mid rise or high rise adapter for about $14 in case your agency wont allow a low rise holster.
Pros: really fast draw and muscle memory
