4105 SERPA Active Retention Holster - Matte Finish
This unique holster design allows you to forget old-fashioned thumb breaks that slow your draw and complicate reholstering. The patented Blackhawk SERPA Technology lock engages the trigger guard as you holster the pistol and won't let go until you release it. The release is made using your normal drawing motion, with the trigger finger...

Blackhawk 4105 SERPA Holster Review
George Reinas here with Cops Plus giving you a product review on the 4105 Blackhawk SERPA concealment holster. I want to go over some key features of this holster, show you some features that you may not be familiar with, and show you why it really is a great product.

Looking at the holster itself, you'll realize it has a really slim profile. Obviously it's a concealment holster, so you want to have it small. Compact weapon systems like this HK9 are really good for this system here, because the smaller the weapon system, the better you can conceal it. The low profile allows you to have it on your belt, or the paddle, if you're a paddle guy, so you have the option. Basically, you have it on your left side, your right side, whatever you shoot. Have a nice shirt over here and keep it concealed.

The SERPA locking button here is really what makes it the great system for me, personally, as it has one single retention. Once you push the button, it allows the weapon system to come out. As you can see, my finger placement is right above the trigger where it needs to be if I'm taking my weapon system out of the holster itself.

Now this SERPA lock button I love because it makes me quick off the draw. I only have one button to get through, I'm already on trigger, and with this depression here, I can come right out of the holster and get on target.

Another key feature about this holster is adjusting it to your belt size. Blackhawk made these nice little clips here adjustable with a Philips head screwdriver, that if you have a different size belt, two inches smaller, or bigger, you can adjust it to the user. That way when you actually fit it custom to your belt, it's not going to slip all over the place. It's going to be nice, secure and firm where you need it.

When you're going ahead looking at the back side of this system, there's three screws here. These screws obviously allow you to switch from the paddle or the belt. What you may not know about this holster is that on the back side of the paddle, and also the belt loop, you have little rivets here that allow you to adjust the cant of the holster itself as well. One of the biggest complaints about concealment holsters is that when you have it on you, your weapon system is so snug to the body that you may actually have it dig into your side, dig into your leg, places like that. Allowing you to adjust the screw height on the backside of the holster itself can set the cant. It's nice and comfortable, it's where you want it. If you purchase a concealment holster to carry concealed, you want it to be comfortable so when you actually have to use it, you know it's there, you know it's reliable, and you're familiar with it.

Now, having the SERPA lock button as compared to a thumb break is going to give you two advantages that are really big. Coming out of the draw, I already touched on having your finger already on the actual trigger as soon as you pull out from the draw. Now the advantages of that, obviously is you can shoot faster, but comparing it to a thumb break holster, you don't have that. You actually have to break over top, then get your actual pistol grip, pull out and get on target. That's going to time, that's going to be seconds that you may need to save your life.

Once you're done dealing with that situation, obviously you're going to re-holster once the threat's gone. Going for a thumb break holster, you have to go ahead, find that place to find the pistol in, but once it's in, you got to sit there and take the time to re-snap the actual thumb break. Great thing about the SERPA lock, when you're finished engaging, and you go back to re-holster, anchor, lock-in, sets itself. You don't have to worry about it.

If you're looking for a great concealment holster, again, the 4105 Blackhawk SERPA concealment holster, it's going to be hard to beat. You're not going to find a better product. Check this thing out, it's at There's many other models if you're looking for one for a GLOCK, if you're a Smith and Wesson guy, they make models for all of them. Again, another great product from Blackhawk. George Reinas for Cops Plus. See you later on.
