Spiggy introduced me to them. They even have holsters for any pistol with any light you choose. (Ex. M9 with a streamlight/surefire or sig 226 with a M3)
Try not to only follow what most people buy, there is always something better.

SERPAs can get crap in the locking mechanism and jam, which in the real world, can get you killed.  Ask anyone the real steel world, they'll say that the BLACKHAWK! SERPA is crap... There is a reason to military issues Safariland 6004 holsters.

As for which holster is "best," thats YOUR decision. Its an opinion, yes some are better than others but theres no real "best."

I wouldn't go as far as to say the product is crap.  In a dusty combative situation, it most acertainly can present a hazard if the locking mechanism decides to stick on you.  

However in a city-scape duty situation, it would be pretty useful in close quarters.  Especially if a combatant attempts to disarm you.

Serpa is good enough for airsoft.  

But yeah... Bladetech is awesome.  Expensive but if you shoot real steel.  It's worth every penny.

If you really want to dish out the money, I would go for the Safari land 6004.

I use the same holster for my M9-PTP as I use for my M92 pistols. But it's hard to spend $50 - $80 for a holster to put an airsoft pistol in.  My primary holsters for open carry are Blade Tech.  More than enough retention, no gizmos to manipulate to put the pistol in operation.

Assuming the pistol is your secondary weapon a cheap nylon holster with a retaining strap either tight to your belt or on the front of whatever "tactical vest" you use won't allow for the fastest presentation of the pistol, but it will be there when you need it and after a few months you can make a more informed decision on what money to spent (or not).  A lot of vests include a holster that fits the M9 and one may be the best choice of all as every thing in integrated into a single unit.

Something like this can be less than $40:
