There is a lot of bad information out there, some even coming from law enforcement and the media about certain topics. Here is an example, the SERPA holster is purported to be safe. However, it is not! There have been multiple incidents in which persons have discharged the firearm unintentionally while using this holster. Watch in slow motion what happens with this shooter's trigger finger when it clears the holster. Fortunately, the gun didn't discharge but his trigger finger clearly was in a position to fire the gun with a little more pressure, say when adrenalin comes into play. Somewhat ironically, the full video is from a TV show where they are praising the holster. With all this in mind, we do not allow the use of SERPA holsters on the range.

Here is the link to the full video but you need to watch the clip first. SERPA Video
