    Yeah, they are good holsters. I love mine. Remember, you can always get the hood and sentry guard pre-installed and remove it later if you're uneasy about the level three option.

        I've heard about the Safariland holsters with the hood and sentry guard. I still don't know what a Sentry guard is. Can anyone tell me?

          Your clearance isn't high enough. Just joking sentry guard is like a thump break but doesn't break it flips forward. If I'm wrong sure someone will point it out.

              I carry for duty a S&W 1911 in a Blackhawk CQC holster. Until I can get more money saved for a level 3 retention.

              I also carry my 1911 for personal protection.

              Also with 2 spare mags.

                  I saw the youtube video demonstrating the safariland holster, level IV, with the sentry guard. Actually the sentry guard is what keeps the rotating hood from moving forward. The sentry guard has to be moved to the rear.

                    That's 48 rounds! What are you protecting?

                      One magazine in the weapon and two spare magazines are pretty standard. Not only do you need extra magazines for the extra ammunition, but also to give you additional options if you have a magazine failure.

                        Thanks. With my very very limited firearms experience (9mm & 38s once on the shooting range during my Police Technology days & a few times a year with 22 rifles as a Boy Scout) I never thought about a magazine failure.

                          I agree. I have one round in the chamber, one 15-round magazine in my gun (a Glock 22) and 2 additional 15-round magazines for a total of 46 rounds.

                            48 Rounds

                            I carry 48 rounds because that is SOP for my company. I work in a high crime area, and gang iniation rituals are for ambush murder.

                              The only unfortunate part is the fact that if you are involved in an ambush you have very little time to react. Let alone pop off 48 rounds. What level holster do you carry? That can also have a large impact on response time.

                                So what happens if he pops off one round and he hears a click click? He racks the round and he still hears a click click? Well you should already be dropping the magazine and starting a reload. Although rare, magazine failure is a far more important reason for carrying multiple magazines than needing 48 or 52 rounds.
