Any experience with the Blackhawk SERPA holsters, anyone?

Kind regards, Dramatikk. :)

So, step-to-step how would you transition from rifle to pistol and back properly? And with or without a sling. After you have unholstered what are the next stages? e.g. breathing cycle, point of aim, supporting hand placement, etc.

First off all, don't think about you're breathing cycle. That would only ruin your focus on what is important, that is getting the rifle away from you're chest area and over to you're weak side (if you're not using a rifle sling), and getting the pistol safely out of the holster (don't Ever rush this part, or you will end up shooting your selv in the leg)

I find it very hard to explain these type of techniques only by the use of text, so I think it is best for us to find some instuctional videos to look at ... :wink:

I feel you on this one, Geryban. But these videos is the closest you can get instruction without the need of pulling money out of you're wallet ... Yes, it is sad I know. :(

If people want to learn these types of weapon handling, they better put down some cash and attend to different courses.

On a final note. Weapon handling is best learned by practical training, so get out to the range and make some practical use of all the theory written in the books.

Kind regards, Dramatikk. :)

In order to learn this type of weapons handling, you better start of with some of the basics ... That would be getting the pistol out of the holster and ready to fire.

Train yourself to not look at your holster. The article doesn't give any good reason to look at your holster. If you HAVE to take a quick look at the holster then do so, but there really isn't any need for this accept for very novice shooters.

Maintaining an eye you your threat area is a very old technique that went back as far as the Samurai.

Sorry fella's, I am actually looking a the drill sheet on the ground next to me! Sometimes I look at my holster administratively to set the next drill up correctly. I am very tactically proficient and have been operating and teaching for a very long time. While performing drills such as transitioning from carbine to pistol and back again in the same drill, you will never see me look at my holster. You guys should come along to one of my classes to actually see how good I am and what I know! :)

Say you start off with a pistol and that is all. Is that your primary?
If you pick up an M4; does that become your primary or is it based off a NEED factor? I.e. pistol is better in this situation, should be my primary weapon?

And how to transition from pistol to rifle, what are steps? Ty.

1. "A handgun is for fighting your way back to a rifle"

2. As it was said in books such as The Tactical Advantage there are times where a pistol is better than a long gun such as extrme tight quarters.
