    I carry mine in a Comp-Tac C-T.A.C. holster. Some people here don't approve of kydex, but the C-T.A.C. works great for me.

    I prefer kydex too, since its thinner and more ridged.

    I really like the look of the Comp-Tac C-T.A.C., but how well does it pull the grip of the pistol up close to the body? It gets pretty hot here in the summer and light, thin shirts are the norm.

    Out of curiosity, what's the beef with kydex?

    I've got quite the box full of USPc holsters......

    I've settled on an In-Descernable from Mark Garrity. See his website for a pic.

    Also use a UC Comfort shirt.


    Others I've tried and reside in the box....

    --CTAC. Actually the best of the mothballed rigs. Holds it close, almost indefinite cants and possible positions. Kydex is hard and gets uncomfy FOR ME.
    --Galco SkyOps. Another decent rig. Only can be used with 1 1/4" belts though. Not as stable in cant during wear as CTAC. Tends to "swim around a bit".
    --Galco USA. Another "idea" that didn't work too well.

    I'm sure there's a few more in there too. I've been using Mark's rig for almost a year now and it IS my IWB rig.

    You would do well to look at Garrity's stuff. He's a world class maker.

    Shoot well and god bless

    Definitely. It does a very good job holding the gun close to the body (especially if you play around with the cant).
