Bought the excellent Blackhawk Serpa Concealment holster for use with my Kimber in IDPA. After shooting it for one match and doing some draw drills, I find that I can’t disengage the locking mechanism consistently. I usually keep my trigger finger WAY off from the holster when I draw, and in order to disengage the lock on the Serpa, I have to force myself to touch the holster with my trigger finger.
During practice, I find myself either not able to unlock it 10% of the time OR I find my trigger finger inside the trigger guard before I present my gun properly. This can be a safety issue. Under stress, I might accidentally discharge the gun while drawing, which is a BIG no no!
I gave up after an hour. Had to do something to fix this holster without permanently damaging it. Here’s the cheapest most simple way of doing it. Take some masking tape, fold it till you get a small 1cmx1.5cm rectangle. Wrap it with some kind of electrician’s tape or any rubbery tape so it won’t slip off.
Insert it under the locking mechanism like so…
and voila!! Stays put and easy to remove when you need to engage the lock.
