Blackhawk SERPA Quick Disconnect System

The BLACKHAWK SERPA Quick Disconnect System was originally designed with tactical purposes in mind. But like many BLACKHAWK! products, has found its way into new markets. For hunters, handguns are simply an everyday part of life. They use them when they go afield, either in the woods or on the plains, whether it's on an African Safari or just out the back door in Pennsylvania. But predators don't just live in the wild. The unfortunate truth is that they live among us as well and so we also have handguns in our homes, cars and sometimes on our person.

One of the issues we face is how to move a pistol from location to location, in as safe a manner as possible and to make it as adaptable as possible for a wide variety of situations. The new SERPA Quick Disconnect System from BLACKHAWK does just that and does it in a way that is so simple and effective, you'll have one of those "Why didn't I think of that?" moments.

Developed originally for military units, who frequently need to move a holstered pistol between the equipment vest and a leg platform very quickly and without needing any tools to do so, the QD System is a clever adapter for both holster and mounting platform. The male adapter goes on the back of the holster and the female adapter goes literally anywhere you want to put the pistol. Under a desk, under the dash of a truck, in a closet, gun safe or cabinet. A simple release switch and a slight twist and the holster mounts and dismounts from the female adapter, wherever you have it located.

Of course, the system was originally designed for the SERPA holster and its' many mounting platforms, so it also allows you to move the holster between a belt loop, leg mount, Blackhawk hunting pack, shoulder harness or paddle mount just as easily and quickly.
