Need Input On Blackhawk! CQC SERPA
I'm in the process of getting a job as an armed security guard, & one of the requirements from the security company I'm applying for is I need a level 2 or 3 holster for my gun. When I Googled level 2 & 3 holsters, this Blackhawk! CQC SERPA paddle/belt holster seems to be the only level 2 or 3 that keeps popping up everywhere, but it says it's for concealed carry. I understand how the holster works, but can you use this for open carry? The paddle thing is new to me but it also comes with a belt attachment. It looks like either way it could be used for open carry, but confused because any company selling it says it's for CCW. The only holster I have is a cheap-o Galco IWB my wife got for me from Cabella's with no trigger guard lock, thumb break, or any other fancy stuff & the security company said it was unacceptable.
Is there anyone from law enforcement on the .Org that uses this CQC for open carry? Or does anyone know of a company that makes an open carry level 2 or 3 waist holster? Any info that can be given is greatly appreciated, as I'm running out of time to select a holster. I also apologize if this thread was supposed to be in the CCW section.
Here is a pic of the Blackhawk! CQC SERPA with weapon holstered & with paddle mount attachment:
