I'm looking to get a holster for my Glock 19.

Does anyone know what holster LAPD uses with their Glocks? NYPD? some of the other major departments and government agencies? and why they made their choice?

I would be using the holster in the training class setting, so concealed carry would not be a big issue.


I've used a Serpa, but wanted to try some other options since I've heard all the negative press re. the Serpa.

My department issues Safariland ALS or the SLS duty holster for our Glock 22's and 35's . It seems most other agencies i run across are issued the same

You carry paddle holsters while on duty?


to OP: most cops I've seen from Southern CA to Central carry Bianchi or Safariland.

The Safariland SLS (http://posttraining.blogspot.com/2012/01/safariland-6285-holster.html) is pretty popular

Safariland ALS/SLS and some even prefer the older 070 style.

are all paddle holsters problematic or just the Serpa?

Serpa is good and bad.

Paddle holsters have there place, but most IMO are not FIT FOR DUTY.

Technically speaking you could make an argument that the safariland is a quasi paddle system, but it is much more reinforced than the rotos, and some serpa variants.

There are a few videos floating around youtube and such, showing some average persons ripping the entire holster, tearing it from the paddle connection, off of one another's hips without much try at all.

What do you need a holster for by the way? What are you going to do with it?

For kydex holsters I use this guy: 101 holsters (http://youtu.be/tkWkp7jXXSg?hd=1)
They would be more than adequate for a classroom atmosphere

for more "professional" or duty oriented meaning holster has more than one source of retention I use Safariland

Frontsight recommends a Bladetech for their handgun classes and STRONGLY discourages the use of the Sherpa and it's many clones.
