This Blackhawk retention holster is very durable due to being made of carbon fiber composites and this holster provides a retention device to prevent unauthorized access. But as you can see the retention release lever located on the outer side so can the assailant. Plus the user has to find the retention release lever while keeping a eye on the assailant is really hard. Shoundn’t drawing a handgun from a holster be easier? There is room for improvement!!!
