The original post asked about BASIC retention thoughts and the serpa holster has worked very well for me. I got it because I carry a lot in the woods hunting and holsters with snap or velcro straps tend to get pulled off and the gun dumped out when strugling through thick brush.
The serpa holster does not require you to put your finger through the triger guard to reliece it so any n/d is the result of failing to keep your finger off the trigger and I feel anyone old enough to buy and own a pistol is inteligent enough to purchase a holster and familurize them self with the proper means of use.
I have caught my gun in brush hard enough to turn me around but the holster has never failed to retain the gun so I believe it is a very viable option for enhanced retention.
