Hi, Jim. I hope that all is well with you.

For a long time now, I've been seeing others use the term "SERPA", but no one explains the meaning of the term, perhaps thinking that everyone should already know what it means. Well, I don't, & I've been an active shooter for many years. Is the term an acronym, standing for a descriptive phrase? I'm guessing that the term applies to a hard plastic handgun holster designed with security devices that prevent other persons from taking your handgun from you.

What does SERPA stand for? Thanks much.

Jim

Don't think it's an acronym. Micheal Serpa developed the holster's retention system.
