Nonetheless, the Serpa holster has been associated with unintentional discharges from one's trigger finger slipping prematurely into the trigger guard as the gun is withdrawn from the holster.

This may be characterized as primarily a training and practice issue, but the basic design of the holster does encourage and facilitate this particular user error. So special training and diligent practice is called for to most effectively and safely use the holster at speed under stress.

Note also that a number of instructors will not permit the use of the Serpa holster in their classes.
"It is long been a principle of ours that one is no more armed because he has possession of a firearm than he is a musician because he owns a piano. There is no point in having a gun if you are not capable of using it skillfully." -- Jeff Cooper
