Blackhawk and Safariland both make nice ones.

Safariland drop legs seem to be the choice of most military and LE. I have an ALS and it not only performs great, it's also very well made. Worth every penny.

Keep in mind when ordering if you are going to use a weapon mounted light.

I have the Safariland for my Beretta and absolutely love it. Very comfortable and stable. The thumb break is also very secure yet easy to manipulate quickly once you get used to it.

I've used both... if you want your pistol to wear a light, it's Safariland. If not, either one will work well.

Buy quality. Buy once.

Safariland 63xx or 600x depending on retention style you like.

Why a thigh holster over a normal one, are you using a plate carrier?

Are you planning to use it for military or LEO purpose?
Otherwise, I would just use regular leather or kydex belt holster.

Some people just prefer thigh holsters.

For me they are more comfortable hiking around then a belt holster.

Heck, when I was a teenager everyone carried a fixed blade knife in there belt, I didn't like mine on my belt so I tied a bandana around my thigh and a second one one going from my belt down to the first bandana and hung my knife off my leg.
Now I have a CRKT Ultima 7 that came with a nice drop leg sheath.

It's all about personal preference and comfort.

Check out High Speed Gear Inc. online. Just tell them what gun, light or no light. I have one and I love it.

I loved the serpa but am switching to safarilland because I feel pistol lights are important....

Try to upgrade to Safariland's flexible drop leg adapter with with the single strap. I've never been a big thigh rig guy until I tried this out. Now it is all I use for training.

Safariland all the way.
