Default Any alternative to Serpa Holsters?

I have 2 Blackhawk Serpa II Holsters.

Love 'em.

Strong
Hold the gun well
Retain strongly (guy almost picked me up once in trianing trying to disarm me and the holster held)
Unretain quickly and intuitively
Low price
Low weight


Why am I looking for an alternative?

The Safety Nazis!

Since you use your trigger finger to unretain it appearantly among the 10,000+ units sold and used for 20 years or so there was a guy or two who got his trigger finger on unretention into the trigger guard and shot himself in the leg.

To me that's more an issue with the trend to ward safetyless handguns.. and since that's Glocks they simply CANT BE at fault so lets blame the holster shall we?

So at this point some training providers forbid the use of Serpa's at their classes which is a problem for me since both my OWB holsters are that and I dont want to always use my compact gun with my conceal IWB holsters.. some type of classes I want to use my OWB w/ my fullsize (which I bought to put a lot of rounds thru)

Anyone know of any good alternatives that match the following parameters the Serpas do?

Strong

Hold the gun well

Retain strongly

Unretain quickly and intuitively

Low price

Low weight

I don't know if these are the same thing as Serpa or not.

Take a look at Craft Holsters, they can provide an alternative
