    I use mine for off-duty and for station desk duty. I absolutely love it. It does take a little practice to get used to the finger button release though.

    Forgive the double post. Found the pics.

    This is on a dress belt when i first got the thing demonstrating the adjustment to any size belt.

    In reality the dimensions and profile of the holster mean that you need some other form of concealment if you decide to carry off duty. In this case, I usually use this holster when I am in a suit or doing something where I will be in a jacket all day.

    Im a pretty big guy but the thickness and OWB nature of this holster means that even with the whole loose-and-long t-shirt you still get a pretty substantial print.

    Hobbsie is entirely correct here. You have to remove both side tabs which are there in case you want to fit to a smaller belt or a "dress belt". This can be easily done via a number 2 phillips.

    I personally really like the platform. When i got mine, i wrote a review on another site and i will have to go dig it out. I was able to jump and roll around without ever losing the weapon. It also aided active retention against my wife (not a hardened criminal by any means of course but at least it wasnt an easy grab).

    The 3 different position adjustments on the back which are also easily modifiable by screw driver are nice too as it allows carry at vertical as well as two different levels of angle depending on where you want to carry it relative to where the draw force will be applied.

    Just to give you "the other side" as well, some folks dont like the fact that the retention on the SERPA is just friction and a standard trigger guard pinch + a small tab that interacts with the button however I have yet to have a single incident with anything "jarring" or "pulling" my XD loose.

    If you prefer (or are required) to add additional levels of retention, Blackhawk have additional models available with thumb-break type retention.

    Let me know if you want pics and I can toss them up.

    We hardly have to carry in the jail but when we have hospital duty, we have to carry. I just want a low profile holster so that i can just leave on my duty belt just in case i got hospital duty. I carry a duty belt everyday at work and hate to take stuff out and rearrange it to fit the department's Safariland holster.

    I have one and love it. But just so you know, it will stick out a lot from your body, almost as much as a duty rig. So if your intention is to use it off duty, keep this in mind.

    You are absolutely correct. It is a tight fit. But it does fit.

    If memory serves me correctly, I believe the duty version may have still been on Blackhawk's drawing board when I bought my CQC. I don't recall that the duty models were available at the time. Could be wrong, but that's the way I remember it.

    I tried it on my duty belt on a whim, and after I figured out that it fit, I liked it enough to leave it on. Been wearing it ever since.

    I originally bought it as an off-duty holster for my Para, but now I've ordered another Serpa for off-duty, since it's too darn much trouble to keep taking it off/putting it on (my duty belt).

    I had tried the Fobus and Uncle Mike's Kydex holsters previously. Was definitely NOT impressed with the Fobus, and didn't feel the Uncle Mike's was secure enough.

    That's about it in a nutshell.

    We wear the standard Safariland leather basketweave belt. Just for sh*ts and giggles, I measured mine a few minutes ago to confirm, and it is the 2.25 inch width. Don't know about the nylon belt width. Like I said, sliding the CQC onto my belt, it is a snug fit, but that keeps it from moving even the slightest bit.

    Good luck with it. I think you'll like it if you can make it fit the belt.

    You do have to remove the little slide adjustment thingys first. It gives a very snug fit on the belt. Doesn't slide around or move at all.

    By adjusting it to a forward cant (grip to the rear), it gives you a super fast draw with just a little practice. You come out of the holster with a proper firing grip as opposed to a rear cant where you draw with a "bent wrist" and have to adjust.

    Several other deputies bought one after they saw mine.

    BTW, did I mention that I love my CQC?

    If your asking about a duty belt. No that holster won't fit. I twill fit a 2 inch normal or web belt. I carry mine with the belt slides in on a 1.75 inch web belt.

    I have the same holster but I don't use it on my belt. I have the paddle attachment for the holster and I find that it keeps it closer to my body and the holster doesn't have as much "give" making it easier to draw from the holster.
