Sandman MW3 Cosplay Test by ReijiKageyama Sandman MW3 Cosplay Test by ReijiKageyama
Just a test for a Sandman kit I'm assembling from different kit I have laying around and will be acquiring a few more things to complete it sometime this year.

Kit at 85% at best.

Very nice kit, If you don't mind me asking what holster and handgun do you run with this?

Thanks.

I'm using the Safariland 6004 and I'm running the Sig Sauger P226r.

Just a suggestion, and feel free to ignore it, but have you ever used the Blackhawk SERPA holster? I highly recommend them. I have used a few different types and got to say the SERPA works the best. A few years back I took a police science course, part of it was on force and weaponry. We had two types of holsters one was a Safariland and other was some cheap nylon holster. Neither of them I really liked cause you have to manipulate the latch with your thumb. The SERPA holsters you hit the release with your trigger finger and once you got the pistol drawn, your finger it already position along the frame. It really helps getting a with a firm grip on the pistol as you drawn. Again, just a suggestion, and I don't wanna mess up something that works for you.

I do have the BHI SERPA Holster for the 226r and the 1911. I've used both for around 3 years but I stopped using them as much when I switched over to my Raven concealment holster for my 1911 and went back to using my Safariland for my 226 (and in some rare cases I run a PWL holster) due to the kit I run. However, I still use the SERPA when I need to run my 226 on my waist or vest vs my thigh.

We were told to refrain from using the SERPA after people had issue with retention due to the lock being able to be forcibly broken by either getting snagged on something or someone coming up from behind you a ripping the pistol from the holster.

Personally, I only encountered the snagging issue once on my 1911 never on the P226 (I use the SERPA level 2, one of my pictures in the gallery has me running a SERPA)

The Safariland just gets my holster far enough from my kit so I can draw better (since I don't run the SERPA"s thigh rig), the locking system isn't much of an issue anymore. I've used the Safariland for nearly 10 years already so I'm pretty quick with it.

Thanks for the suggestion though, I always appreciate talking kit and figuring out what may make my system more efficient.

Yea, I guess it is really up to personal preference. About that snagging issue, I had the same thing with my SERPA thigh rig for the 1911, I just adjusted the screw just below the latch and it seemed to fix the problem.

Yup there are different ways to run a kit and if how you run it works well for then go for it. But it's important to always be open to suggestions to things that may improve your system, nothing lost by trying to learn a bit more and finding ways to get more efficiency in a system.
