  • USP Holster

    Looking for a good USP holster. Not interested in a drop leg. So looking at hip mounted options (one with an option to mount onto a vest would be nice). I see a lot of lads with the SERPA but I'm not 100% on it.

    Protac duty holsters now have MOLLE fittings to mount on vest or belts.Just saying.
    "Let us be clear about three facts. First, all battles and all wars are won in the end by the infantryman. Secondly, the infantryman always bears the brunt. His casualties are heavier, he suffers greater extremes of discomfort and fatigue than the other arms. Thirdly, the art of the infantryman is less stereotyped and far harder to acquire in modern war than that of any other arm." ------- Field Marshall Wavell, April 1945.

        There's a lot of anecdotal information about the positioning of the release button on the SERPA leading to NDs.

          Yeah I don't like the fold over part of the pouch. As opposed to a thumb break / open ended holster

          Yeah that's why I'm reluctant to get one.

                    i got a new belt n holster in protac last year major improvement over older ones.
                    OK Smith it’s Colonel Decker. I hate it when a plan comes together. You’re surrounded. I want you and Peck and Baracus, to throw out your weapons, all the ration packs you stole and come out with your hands up. You have fifteen seconds.

                      Protac only do the issue style belt holster nowadays (dropped in a few weeks ago). The drop leg doesn't fit properly on a belt as it has 2 of the drop leg straps permanently attached so you're left with 2 long straps flapping around. It does however look the mutts mutts. But it looks so Gucci it'd attract attention! Good bit of kit tho.

                      Still haven't found an appropriate one at an appropriate price. It also now has me wondering on the best position for wearing a pistol. I've noticed some lads with pistol in cross draw position, eg. Pistol butt facing outwards on left hip. For right handed draw.

                        there's probably an element of where you are wearing pistol going to need to be taken into account, barrack duties, ops, overseas,etc. the first will probably limit choices the others will give a bit more lee-way. is the pistol going on a belt, vest, etc.

                        which brings up the question of internal pistol holsters on vests. a bit useless when you think about it. secure but no way you'll get to it quickly. if you do think you'll need it, it's just going to be popped in another pouch, etc.

                            **** cross draw. I never understand why people would use it.

                            Keep the pistol on your strong side, far more natural movement into a firing position.

                              Main reason was that in the old days when the issue holster had the spare ammo mag holder built into the holster, it allowed you to draw and have the spare mag near your left hand for reloads. Nowadays the spare mag is supposed to be in a separate mag holder on the left side and the holster on the right. The again, the holster still has a spare mag holder built in.
