    Currently, I have Springfield XD40, Kimber 1911(2), H&K P2000, and Glock 19. I have left AND right hand Blackhawk Serpa CQC holsters for all of these. On the right hand holsters, there is absolutely no problems. With the left hand holsters, there tends to be a bit of an issue with the holster being a bit too tight and "pinching" the slide and causing some draw issues. So much with the 1911s that when using the paddle the entire holster and paddle assembly will come off still attached to the firearm.
    Is this an issue with all left handed blackhawk holsters? or am I just that unbelievably unlucky?

    Sounds like you need to adjust the tension screw.

    yup, back that screw out a 1/4 turn at a time until you get it the way you want it.

    I have adjusted the tension screws... on all of them... with little or no noticable relief. I do not recall off the top of my head, but, it seems to me, that i took one completely out... I think on the 1911. Dont get me wrong, I like the holsters alot, and when using them on my leg rig I can muscle them out without much hassle. Im tempted to take a file or sandpaper to the inside when i get back and see if I can create some relief that way.

    Don't do that, call Blackhawk and see what they say. May just be that they need some lovin, or something like that. I am a lefty and one of the ones I am looking at for my 92FS is the same way.
