    +3 for the C-TAC; I carry my Springfield Champion in it for 8-16 hours/day, and I hardly know it's there. I also like the option of tucking over the gun. As others have said, make sure you use a quality gun belt, and wearing a gun IWB means you will probably have to go up a pants size. Since the photo was taken, I have switched to the velcro clips which make the holster even easier to conceal.

    This is a timely discussion (for me at least.)
    I have a galco holser and find that the safety can be disengaged as my Ultra Carry to the leather strap has a little relative movement.
    Anybody have that occurance? Advice?
    It makes me nutz to think I can have it cocked, & not locked.
    It’s so much easier now days, to "Love and honor" my wife, when she is armed, and shoots a better group than I do. (Till death do us part, eh?)

    My advice in all due repect is lose the Galco and get a holster that works from one of the big boys on this forum.

    As Chris, (P95 Carry) says, we are spoiled with the talented leather craftsman we have here, Or something to that affect!

    Also, check and make sure your safety has enough resistance to stay engaged till you take it off.

    Finally someone who preaches the belt. I dont know how many times guys complain about a holster at work and they're wearing a thin walmart 1" belt.

    As for holsters. I'm sold on Milt's (Sparks) SS2's for ITP, Galco Concealable for OTB and Galco Miami Classic for shoulder (which is rare).

    However, 80% of my carrying is with a UC Comfort T-shirt holster as it allows me to have deep concealment and with the shirts changed to hidden snaps pretty quick.

    I recommend the McDaniel II from Andrews Leather. Best IWB I have found and the only one I'll use (I have three).

    This is the best IWB holster I have found... ever! :)

    I use a Brigade M-3 Enforcer on a Bianchi belt. An untucked, patterned shirt conceals it just fine.
