Looking at purchasing a new thigh rig for my Glock 22. So far I am mainly looking at the Safariland and Blackhawk Serpa models. Any body have any experience with these?

I recommend the Safariland line. They're the benchmark. They come in SLS, ALS, or SLS/ALS combinations. You'll have to decide the mechanism that you prefer. I happen to like the SLS/ALS combo. There are options allowing for running a light, also, if you've decided it will suit your needs.

I am a huge fan of Safariland both on and off duty. however I do prefer the Y-Harness on the Blackhawk platform. I don't suppose anyone here would know if a Safariland holster can be retrofit to a Serpa platform?

A double-strap mod for the Safariland line? I haven't seen one.

I have seen the following, though:

Both were well regarded by the folks wearing them.

Are you planning to wear a whole duty rig, or just the holster dropped down off the belt? I think if you wear a duty belt that is where the holster belongs. If it is a backup or you are more concerned with comfort in a low risk area the drop rig is probably fine.

Try this, walk backwards at an easy pace and try to draw your weapon without breaking stride. If you can do this you are more coordinated than me. You could do the same test walking forward, but I see a more likely scenario as me backing away from a person wielding a contact weapon like a knife.
