Has any one ever used one of these? I've actually considered getting one because of the versatility factor. I can go from strong side draw to cross draw if I'm driving or position it anywhere else depending on the situation and I can do this all without using different holsters or taking my belt off to change them. I have had a fobus paddle holster before and I found it to be very comfortable, I've just never tried the Roto style holster and was curious if anyone had anything to say about it. Any info would be great.

Thanks

Throw that Piece of [edited by moderator] as far away as you can :twisted: and get yourself a Serpa holster at any gunstore. Now that would be a good choice of holster :D

I have had two for several years with no problem. I know a gun shop in Dallas that stopped carrying them altogether--said that they fall apart easily. For the money I spent, I'll buy a new one when it happens.

I'm not a huge fan of the roto-paddles. I have one for my Glock 22 w/ TLR-1. It has a tendency to rotate on it's own. Sometimes when I draw, or sit down. I've tried tightening the screw, but I think I'm too the threshold of stripping it. They aren't bad holsters, but I prefer the regular paddle.

Good for the price, but there are many better holsters out there. (serpa comes to mind)

Will the serpa rotate so that I can use is for many types of carry or is it in a fixed position?

You can adjust it, I think there are like 9 combos you can set it to. The Fobus Roto has more options, as the serpa is more for cant adjustments.

Thanks mirage. I guess I should have been more accurate as to what I was asking but it is the cant that I was curious about. Maybe I will look into getting a serpa. I'll be sure to let everyone know when I do and let everyone know what I think.

Even if you don't plan on buying one at a local store, go see if you can try one out. The fobus runs about $30, the serpa $80 (from a quick google search, your gun model may be different and affect the price). I know plenty of people who love each of these holsters. this tends to be an XD/serpa site :roll: so most the answers will include getting one of them.

I have been doing a little research online. I seem to like the looks of the serpa sportster so I might try to find that around here to see if it'll fit me and see if it will work for what I want it to. I'm considering the sportster because it seems to be a little more compact than the original serpa. That was the entire reason that I was considering the fobus but after I started to read up on it I found that many people don't like it because when you draw, it puts your finger right at the trigger and I don't think I want that because a mishap could occur if under pressure. That's the last thing that I want to happen if it ever comes to me having to draw my weapon in a time of need.
