I just got this Simply Rugged CUDA for a 10mm Glock 40. Didn't get a safety strap but I think any fall that would knock the gun out of the holster would kill you anyway...

Do you ride with chaps? If so do like the old timers did and and have a pocket put on the chaps and carry it in the pocket. Cheers


don't judge until you have walked a mile in other persons' moccasins'

I've used a HPG Runners Kit Bag the past year while riding with several different handguns and really like it. Works great for a Glock with a trigger cover. Didn't know how many things I'd use that HPG kit bag for until I got it....gets used all the time.

I also have the cuda for a glock 26. If I could do cart wheels, it still wouldn't fall out. I give it a thumbs up as well.

Also have a pistol pocket in my chaps which works great as was stated above

If you want it to stay in the holster under the conditions you stated then get a holster with a retention device or strap.

Serpa. I don't ride horses, but I do hike and four wheel and fish and hunt with a G20 and bought a Serpa for the loss prevention/retention.

If I got thrown off at my age, I'd need the pistol to myself out of my misery. wink

Getting throwed is for young folks.

Safariland ALS, avoid the paddle as it might break under certain circumstances.

Actually, a Hill People Gear Kit Bag would likely be even better.

Yes, he is. Idiots can screw up almost anything. I have the safariland for a HK and like it too. I think the Serpa (not sportster) is higher quality.

You're wrong. BTW, Tex was sportin' a SERPA. Rob Leatham, among MANY other trainers of note, will not allow you to train with him/them and use a SERPA. They are tolerable with a DA/SA like a 92 but dangerous as hell with anything with a short trigger stroke.

This Blackhawk holster should fit your needs.

I wouldent recommend a hip holster. If (when ) you take a fall
You sure don't want to land on it. I carry a revolver in either a shoulder rig, or a cross draw in front of my left hip Keeps the gun out of my way if I have to rope,or have to handle a lead animal.

Montana Shoulder & Holster Rig

Deflave had mentioned this one, and have been trying it out with a 4inch mountain gun. It is cross draw, fwiw. I like that it rides a bit higher which, on a horse, sits better and grip access is better for me. And has a retention strap. Now am a relative newcomer to horses compared to some of you but so far so good on them with this setup. The only downside really is a collared shirt is much preferable to a t-shirt, else it may eat your neck after a while. Depends.

Yes, I know Tex was sporting a serpa, and I am aware that some trainers don't like them/disallow them. A guy at our range shot his leg reholstering a glock. Either his finger was on the trigger or something (toggle on a drawstring perhaps) got in there and did the deed. Point is, one must exercise care with a firearm, especially what amounts to a cocked and more or less unlocked auto like the glock.

I was incorrect on the ALS, I actually have the GLS Pro Fit. I like it well enough, although I have limited range time with it. The Serpa is built out of better material and is more rigid than the GLS pro fit. Maybe it's the one size fits most aspect of the pro fit. I use the Serpa for woods use and like it for that purpose.

Accidents can happen with any holster, but it's undeniable that the Serpa is more conducive to those accidents than other designs. Whether that matters to you or not is a different issue.

The plastic in that GLS is some space-age stuff. So far it appears to be "Marine-proof". Time will tell.

You are correct about care when reholstering a Glock. BTDT and got splattered with bullet fragments off of concrete from that. The guy DID NOT have his finger on the trigger, clothing got caught in the trigger guard.

Ol'Tex shot himself drawing a 1911 from a Serpa, not while reholstering a Glock. He slapped the trigger, plain and simple.

I've got a Blackhawk Serpa for the Glock 20. It is undoubtedly secure and as safe as any other holster to use. It would, however, not be my first choice for horse back because it sticks out a lot and I think a hard fall could break it. A close riding leather belt/crossdraw or shoulder/chest rig with retention strap would be much better IMO.

There are 2 things life would be better off without, a Glock and getting thrown off a horse...
