From Blackhawk:

For the ultimate in handgun security, Blackhawk SERPA CQC concealment holsters feature a passive retention detent adjustment screw and the patented SERPA Auto-Lock release, which offers Level 2 retention and reinforces a full master grip that allows users to draw normally with the index finder sliding from the holster body to the pistol frame in one single movement. Upon re-holstering the firearm, the Auto-Lock immediately engages the trigger guard with an audible click that won’t let go until released.

A belt loop and paddle platform are included. SERPA CQC concealment holsters also fit shoulder, S.T.R.I.K.E., quick disconnect and tactical holster platforms, making them extremely versatile.

⊕ Hogue Competition ARS Stage 1 Sport Holster

Hogue has announced the availability of the ARS Stage 1 Sport Holster for competition shooters: ARS stands for Automatic Retention System which they advise has been modified to accommodate two different locking modes. 

 

Hogue ARS Stage 1 Sport Holster

 

As Hogue explains it, 

“The closed mode utilizes the standard ARS thumb release method for added security. The open mode eliminates the thumb release activation and allows the holster to engage with the firearm through a friction hold. The firearm is still secure with a precision holster fitment and the reduced activation step facilitates a faster draw.”

The new Hogue competition holster is available for a number of handgun models.

⊕ Versacarry Comfort Flex IWB Holster Update  

This isn’t a new holster, rather it’s an evolution of what they advise was one of their most popular designs in 2020. The Comfort Flex is made with Versacarry’s water buffalo leather, based on a polymer insert that provides rigidity and strength.

The improved Comfort Flex IWB holster is optics compatible, with a new padded pillow foam backing for comfort (which also functions as a sweat guard between leather and skin). Polymer and foam backing alike are leather lined to protect your weapon’s finish, as well as to enhance durability. 

Versacarry advises, 

The holster is an ultra-slim, very lightweight design for a comfortable carry. It has a draw tension-adjustment for a custom fit of the owners’ firearm for a secure carry. 

The Comfort Flex IWB holster is made with a forward cant for easy draw. It is held in place by a newly designed strong belt clip which provides excellent stability and fit while remaining easy on/off of the rig. 

The new Comfort Flex IWB Holster comes in four sizes 1,2,3 & 4 to fit many popular handguns.
