See how I rhymed that title?

For the longest time now, I've had this Blackhawk SERPA holster lying around not getting any use.  Reason being: I only had a belt paddle for it but don't like having it on my belt.  I prefer running a thigh rig for my sidearm during games.  I recently came upon an opportunity to do a little tradesies with my brother Todd for one of his thigh platforms in exchange for an item or two I had in my possession.  The only problem was that he did not have the screws to mount the holster onto the thigh platform.

At first I thought the screws I had for the belt paddle would work, but they were too short, as it were.  Since I am very impatient and didn't want to have to try & track some official Blackhawk SERPA replacement screws down online, pay what would probably be more money than necessary, plus shipping, then have to wait for the screws to arrive, I just ran down the street to my local hardware store to see if they might have some screws that would work just as well.
