Welcome to another install of Tactical Tuesday! So, I had the opportunity to buy one of the original models of Blackhawk! CQC SERPA Holsters the other day. Some of you might ask why I would commit such a horrible sin. If you don't know what I'm talking about google "SERPA shoot yourself in the dick." Errrr... I mean "leg."
Anyways, one of the things that I noticed on some of the models of SERPAs is right around the possessed demon retention button. There is plenty of extra material that can keep your finger from extending completely straight out. As seen in the below picture.
So, the idea is not to hit the button with the pad of your finger, but depress it with the underside of the first knuckle while having a completely straight / flat finger. This allows for a perfect index on the frame of the gun without your finger "booger hooking." But there's that pesky extra material in the way. How do you "fix" this... Using the #1 tool for anyone who has a plastic or kydex holster... Mr. Dremel!
After a mild application of the grinding wheel you can remove the excess material that keeps your finger from lying flat down on the button. Wah-lah! You've "fixed" you SERPA to help make it a little safer.
