Blackhawk T-Series Holster Review
Well, maybe I’m exaggerating a little. I have been into the Serpa system for a long time, thinking I had quality, if not exactly ‘top of the line’ equipment. How wrong was I?
Not too wrong it turns out.
Not unlike 5.56 ammo, once you’re locked into a system it’s hard to swap out easily. If you fall in love with .300 Blackout but you already have 5000 rounds of 5.56, suddenly starting all over again at ground zero can be daunting.
I had Glock, Beretta, and Sig Sauer Blackhawk Serpa holsters with a gambit of paddles and quick disconnects. I had the female holster receivers on my body armor, my combat belt, under the dash of my truck, on my bed frame, in my refrigerator, screwed to the backside of my TV… okay, there I go exaggerating again but you get my point. Suffice it to say that I was eye balls deep in the Blackhawk Serpa system when…
!!All Of A Sudden!!
…I find out that the Serpa is less than desirable and has even banned by some precincts and gun classes. Huh… gun folks banning gun stuff because ‘they think’ it’s unsafe. I smell hypocrisy… but I digress.
Although the Serpa holster never failed me personally, I also can’t say I’ve ever been involved in a real world shooting situation with it either. After watching numerous videos on it and seeing how potentially unsafe it was, I reluctantly decided to change it up. Not an easy choice with all the Blackhawk stuff I have.
I looked long and hard at Safariland and some similarly badass retention holsters when I discovered the New Blackhawk T-Series holster. I have wanted a light bearing holster for some time now and this one seem to fit the bill.
Blackhawk, if you’re reading this, you have a terrible website with a ton of info on it that tells you absolutely nothing you actually want to know. Primarily does the new holster work with all the previous Blackhawk mounting accessories?
Taking a chance, I dove right in buying two of them from MTG Tactical at once and the simple answer is yes… with a slight modification.
