YMMV, of course, but I'd shy away from the SERPA. Many trainers will not allow these in their classes due to the tendency for users to press the release like a button with the tip of their finger instead of releasing it as intended with the finger straight. Using the tip of the finger risks the fingertip going into the trigger guard and pressing the trigger as the gun is drawn. There are documented cases where folks -- even well trained folks -- have had unintended discharges in this manner, sometimes injuring themselves. I value training, and I shy away from equipment that I cannot go train with.

Thanks. Was thinking the same thing now to decide between a paddle or belt holster from Springfield...
