Viper drop leg holster

16 posts in this topic

I had my first skirmish today at ambush adventures in chobham, had a fantastic day, however my holster I use I'm having some issues with and was wondering if anyone would have some advice. I'm using a viper drop leg holster and the problem I have is that it comes loose around the leg during the skirmish and I actually dropped my pistol at one point. Any suggestions or recommended alternate holster would be appreciated.

I had this problem, what i did, because i am 13 years old, i tuck the clip bit in whereever, then, the upper leg strap, you want to extend as much as poss and use like a belt then the other one can go like normal. if you dont understand ask :)

To avoid dropping your pistol - ALWAYS do up the strap after re-holtering your weapon.

How to avoid the coming loose problem, do that to both clips.

Iused to have one, had the same problems and found a solution.

Bin it and but a serpa style one.

 

I tried a lot of mods on it etc, gave up on it.

Cheers guys, thanks for the response, i have just been looking at the serpa holsters and I was wondering can they be used on belts and vests??

Mine's fine.

 

I know that it's meant to go on your thigh, but if you roll up the bit that fastens to your belt so it doesn't really hang much further than the length of the clip part, then the thigh straps go around the meatier top end of your leg, so it holds it a lot better.

 

My pistol sits about as high as the bottom of my trouser pocket, so it's about an arm's length to grap it.

 

The only thing I hate about it is how fiddly it is to refasten the button that holds the pistol in after you've holstered it.

I had the same issue. I bought an IMI polycarbonate holster. Similar to the serpa but cheaper. It comes with a belt clip and you can also get them with a molle attachment. Look on g1098 tactical website. Awesome holster.Forgot to mention I use a beretta M9 also.

The 93's fit the M9 style serpa's

 

I assumed not due to the elongated trigger guard and handle... A quick google says people have to chop them to fit. I'm fine with the holsters I have, until a gun goes flying...
