Hey GTers! I need help deciding between the above listed holsters. For the academy, I only need a level 2, but I figure I'll just train with a level 3 to begin with and practice weapon retention. Weapon is a G22 gen 3. I love the design of the Blackhawk, but I've heard mixed reviews on the SERPA failing with debris getting into it. I've also heard it fails horribly should you ever need to re-holster, reload, and re-draw all with support hand. Videos show that the Safariland excels in this. These reviews have come from videos as well as the forums on officer.com I'd like opinions, reviews, personal stories, or horror stories of either holster failing and the circumstances surrounding that failure. Thanks! Just another day in paradise. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
