Blackhawk has come a long way since its nadir in the mid-aughts when the company was cranking out cookie-cutter tactical gear of nominal quality.
Perhaps no piece of tactical equipment exemplified that diminished reputation more than the SERPA holster.
Issued to major US, foreign military, and lots of law enforcement agencies, the SERPA had major safety issues that are chronicled across the web.
But a year or so ago — and under new management — Blackhawk introduced the T-Series retention holster with a whole new release mechanism that’s more resistant to debris and mishandled draws.
And the company just released a version of its L2C holster to pay tribute to the men and women of law enforcement.
As a salute to the men and women of law enforcement, the new L2C holsters will feature a blue, inner molding that is displayed along the edge of the exterior of the holster.
The new, limited-edition holster will be offered in five fit options across the various holster molds and only available while supplies last. The Blackhawk T-Series L2C holster will offered be in both left and right-handed fits for the Glock 17 and SIG Sauer P320 pistols as well as right-hand only model for the Glock 19. The new holsters will retail for $59.95.
The Blackhawk T-Series line is the world’s first thumb driven, dual-injected molded holster. The holster combines the company’s proven outer body strength made possible with a glass reinforced nylon along with a soft touch inner liner that is both super slick and sound-dampening. This durable and efficient, low-friction design translates into a smooth, quiet draw or when re-holstering the sidearm. Designed to follow Blackhawk’s Master Grip Principle, all T-Series holsters have been specifically developed to allow the user’s hand to land naturally where it should in order to deploy the sidearm.
Like previously introduced Blackhawk models, the L2C holster has been specifically designed to assist with concealed carry. Each holster model is standard with a new speed cut to help with a faster draw and features a low-profile design for ease of concealment. The L2C holster is also RMR-compatible, enabling users the ability to add a red dot to their carry firearm.
We’ve been using a T-Series holster for Glock video reviews and have no complaints. We even threw it on a new pistol shooter for some drawing-from-a-holster lessons, and he picked it up pretty darn quick.
So if you’re an LE type and are looking for a solid retention holster, take a gander at the T-Series — it might be worth your coin.
