Did this video help you?

Adam Sprague: Another thing is if you don't keep maintenance, it happens very few times but it has happened, where the officer had a serpa level 3 and the top part of it came undone, but when he went for the secondary retention it wouldn't depress.

Jason Gleason: I agree both holsters are great. The one thing you did not mention though is that the Blackhawk light bearing holster will still work properly without the light attached where as the safariland holster will not.

Urban Cohort: From the guys I know who buy gear, the general consensus seems to be that Safarilands offer a bit more security for your gun, whereas SERPAs offer a slightly faster draw. Also, stay frosty and come home in one piece man, I have a few friends out in A-stan and Kuwait, myself.

Cobrey92: I really like the Safariland Holsters. I had more difficulty with the SERPA than I did my 6005. With the 6005, my hand always falls where I want for gripping it. Both holster's need training and I personally thing the rotating hood is the better system.

SuperBobbster: Is it possible to mount the safariland holster onto the blackhawk thigh rig? The single strap system on the safariland isn't as good as the dual strap fitting....

hocadidilyocutt: Check out the safariland 3084.

collegeboy391: Hey man, does the gun and mag holster come with the serpa thigh holster when you buy it?

benbangui: nice video man :) i like both for different reasons too :) blackhawk had a better long term comfort. they are the only one with 2 belt straps. i have used multiple single belt strap platforms and they always move around different possitions on my leg and its irritating as hell! i cant stand that. where you set the blackhawk up on your leg, stays in they possition. so for me that comfort is hands down better then all the other thigh rigs. i also have grown to love the xiphos light...

benbangui: @bensharmak i think that is it :) nice looking forward to watching it :)

MrDewey85: From watching your video I really liked the sound of the Safariland where I really didn't think I'd like it at all..... however, I don't like the sound of the light sitution with that holster. So not cool of them to make you use their lights for that.

tsgt1171982: If your looking to not have the safariland slide around on your belt check out the safariland drop flex adapter. Really helps when running a heavier gun/light combo.

FAT LOLO: Lefties Have Rights Too =>

Ben Sharmak: @AdoreYouInAshXI they might. i haven't checked. i know they make the holsters that have the lights attached to them, but i haven't seen any that are for 1911s without the light attached. they might fit in the standard 1911 holster.

otakurj: Alright! A south paw!

blacknight19832: Does your h&k work good with out the light and what type of light are you using on it

Ben Sharmak: @MrDewey85 they both feel the same. it ultimately boils down to how much gun you're willing to carry. the 1911 weighs down a lot more than a polymer gun

SonOfTheDawn515: Although I will say that the Blackhawk thigh rig was more comfortable than the safari land and I wore both at 8-12 hours a day.

Joshua Bellard: What 1911 is that?

Ben Sharmak: @CohorsUrban thanks bro! much appreciated!

Boondee0077: What kind of pistol mag pouch is that attached to that blackhawk platform? Can't find it on blackhawk website???

BLS4Health: get dirt in that serpa and you will have a stuck gun

MrDewey85: If I can find someone to put a rail on my 1911 so I could have the light I'd so carry that. But right now it's just up in the air. I'm just doing research and day dreaming so when I get the chance I have a better idea of what I want.

FDNY101202: There is a level 3 serpa which seems closer in retention to the safariland.

AdoreYouInAshXI: Does safriland make a holster that will work with the springfield operator 1911 with light rail?

benbangui: the other thing though, if you dont like the xiphos then safari land is the way to go. i prefure there locking mech too :) but for me the comfort over wieghed the locking mech and better choice of lights :)

doc86military: @GhostAirsoftUnit I've seen guys use the Serpa leg platform with a blade tech holster mounted on

LeMilicien: Nice job Ben, I was looking at those two rigs for a 1911 and will be going with the Blackhawk thanks to your vid.

Ben Sharmak: @ZombieTactics thanks bro!

Ben Sharmak: @LeMilicien glad you enjoyed the vid!

Ben Sharmak: @benbangui if you're talking about the g-code holster, i have that already lol. i use that as my uspsa rig. that vid is currently in the works :P

Lou G: Great video man, not made of money so I ask people that know before I drop so much on a holster.

An0nym0us9001: Would have got a BlackHawk Tac holster but they don't offer for my handgun which is a FN Five seveN, so I went with the Safariland Tac holster. Good video.

MrDewey85: In your opinion though which one is more easier to carry / wear all day?

Ben Sharmak: @theArmedJanitor that's on my shortlist of videos to make. i'll do it when i come home from deployment

gooferman609: thing not addressed in this video is the level 3 SERPA holster. that is a super secure holster, retention, the locking on the trigger frame and the cap over the rear of the gun

aznazguy: Where can I get one of those USP diagram pads?

Ben Sharmak: @benbangui i agree with the comfort on the blackhawk. if i'm buying a holster for a gun without a light, i'd definetly go blackhawk.

aznazguy: Have you seen the G-Code RTI accessory for the 6004? It's a quick disconnect that looks pretty interesting.

dc pinner: Hey thanks for this review. I really needed to see this. Would you say there is significantly more play/swing when walking in the safariland than the blackhawk because of only one "pivot" point on the belt where as the blackhawk has two? Thanks!

benbangui: @bensharmak ive thought about using the leg platform on the blackhawk and then mounting other holsters on it :) check out chanderson1 he has some holster reviews of a company that has a simular style holster as the safari. but its a nicer actual button push that throws the stap forward. again, great vid! :)

BruceBufferFTW: @bensharmak I was just checking out this vid (airsoft related) and I realised you're a real hero serving his country. May you come home safely

Blackhawk Airsoft: Safariland is better

SonOfTheDawn515: I've worn both types of thigh rigs myself. The safariland gave me more piece of mind as far as the sense of security goes but the SERPA has its place as well. It depends on what you're more comfortable and effective with.

ZombieTactics: Nicely done CalGun brother!
