    I'll beat around the house in it for a day or two and see if I change my mind. I think this may be a winner when I just need something quick and concealable. As you can see by the pics, I have a lot of Galco gear for this M&P.

    Still not "perfect" though, the search continues.
    i see that you have both the summer comfort and the king tuck, how do you like them and what one would you suggest over the other? i have a springfield XDSC and have been going back and forth between the two and which one i want to get.your thoughts??

    I'll say this, the king tuck distributes weight better, is adjustable, and very comfy. It is probably more concealable too and obviously, you can tuck in a shirt over it. If you have a heavier firearm, it is no contest, the king tuck is better.

    For something like my M&P compact, I actually prefer the summer comfort. But I am partial to leather. Oddly enough, in jeans the king tuck gets more use, for some reason my summer comfort just doesn't fit right in jeans. In my cargo shorts (which I wear 80% of the year) the summer comfort fits best. I will say, the lower edge of the summer comfort can dig into my butt a little bit when I wear it. Partially because it is so smooth it slips down some. If I had it to do again I would have bought the Galco Royal Guard which is rough side out. But I wear the summer comfort often in shorts.

    Hope that helps.

    I have the Stow and Go for several pistols including the M&P Compact, but I carry it in a Galco King Tuk.
    Galco also makes a version of the Stow and Go that has a clip that hooks under your belt and makes the holster tuckable.
    Don't remember the name of it, but I carry my Glock 26 in it and it works really well. About 10 dollars more than the Stow and Go. Pretty nice off the shelf holsters.
    Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.

    Yeah, I haven't carried it "all day" but for the few times I have left the house with it on, I haven't even noticed my pistol was there. I suppose I should have waited to buy it till spring. For me, the weather has finally gotten "chilly" (66 degrees today) enough for a windbreaker or jacket. This allows me to use my ultra comfy Galco Cop 3 Slot OWB.
