I have used an MTAC and a plain kydex holster. I've never gone with an actual "retention device". Use what you have.

The qualifying target is a full-size human silhouette. If I remember correctly, the target looks something like this one:

If you can hit a human-size head at 10 yards, you will do just fine. The best advice I have heard is, "just don't shoot Sgt. Hoover."

There is no time limit. Sgt Hoover will likely tell you to take your time and get your hits. Nothing to really worry about.
