Depends how you sit
. I can sit in a regular chair no problem. It can be uncomfortable while driving a small car (seats are small) unless you find the "sweet" spot. I wear mine at 4:00.



I usually wear a t-shirt with an open button-up collared shirt and it conceals quite comfortably. Just gotta keep that right arm close to prevent the shirt from blowing back too far. Sometimes I wear it buttoned up too. Or I wear a polo with an undershirt.

I wear mine at 8 o'clock (left handed). MilitaryPower, I have a HUGE problem with shirt tails here. The wind seems to ALWAYS be blowing at 20+ mph here in Kansas! My biggest problem with light concealment garments is the wind blowing up my 6 o'clock and plastering the shirt against my body, seriously printing the pistol!

Could you explain further? Does it make the gun tilt more? How does it conceal better and feel more comfortable?

The tab switch is explained here: http://californiaccw.org/posts/list/793.page#9736



Yes, it will slightly increase the cant if the clips are left in the same position, but that's almost moot considering you can still adjust it any way you want. I found it placed the gun slightly lower and held it closer. I assume there are two main reason why it becomes more comfortable 1) the lower position places it in a "sweet spot" against your hip and 2) the rear tab, which is now on the front, is angled up which does not get in the way of your leg when sitting, crouching, or doing anything other than standing straight up. After this mod, I also buff the edges of the kydex to make sure they are smooth and apply Moleskin to the top of the backside, over the rivets, and around the edges of the front leather tab. The result is perfection. YMMV.

What would the advantage of the CTAC be over the Comp-Tac Infidel (with the Ghurka attachment)? Simply more adjustable? Do the two smaller clips hold as well as the one smaller plus the holster clip of the Infidel? Either way, I think I'm going for a Comp-Tac holster.

The CTAC is more adjustable than the Infidel. The cant and the height can be changed pretty easily. Also, since the clip is not mounted on the holster itself, the CTAC would be a hair more concealable I would think. That said, I have the Infidel and I like it a lot. It is a very versatile design.

Thanks for more of those holster pictures Ron.
I'm thinking I don't need THAT much concealability since I regularly wear a tshirt and a vest that holds all of my other stuff so the Infidel might work out. What's the distance between the rear clip of the CTAC and the front one? It seems a bit long, which would interfere with the other things on my belt, but I could be wrong. :? - Colt

Just measured my C-TAC for you - 6" center-to-center and about 5" inside-to-inside of the clips. Hope that helps.

Thanks! That's actually just about right for my belt and what else I carry on it... Looks like I'll be getting a CTAC.

Well, my issue right now is not knowing if the M&P 45 will fit the current holsters that have been available for the 40/9 models. Otherwise I'd order it tomorrow. Hopefully someone will be able to let us know as soon as they get a 45 model.

One of my concerns about the CTAC is around the belt clips. Are they secure enough on the belt to prevent the holster from rising up, or coming off, when drawing the gun?



*edit* I am most interested in the standard clips.

The standard clips work very well! Once on your belt, the holster is very secure there!
