    CompTac CTAC: How is yours adjusted?

    I got my CTAC in today, but I'm having a hard time figuring out what configuration is best for me. I'm sure I'll need to fool with it some more to find it all out, but it doesn't seem to make a whole lot of difference from the bottom and top holes. How is your CTAC adjusted? Pictures would be great. Low holes under the trigger, and high holes over the slide.. or whatever you use personally. I like how the CTAC has some retention to it from the indentation on the side of the trigger guard.

    All input is greatly appreciated. It IS slimmer than my old holster which has the loops over the weapon.

    I think this is the reason I decided on the Infidel over the CTAC - too many adjustments available!

    EDIT: I realized I have not put all the options available. Its too late for me to realize that now with the poll. IF your option is NOT listed, please describe your option.

    MODERATORS: IF you can add one more option to my poll, that says "My option is not listed" Then please do so. Then people can use that option to vote on if its not listed.

    S

    PS- Do you think I could have used the word "option" many more times in this post?? sheesh...

    Front Tab-Bottom hole
    Rear Tab-Middle Hole

    I wear the holster around 3:30-4:00 position and it tucks the grip right up into the spot below my ribcage over the kidney. If I go any lower (ala the " tab modification") it starts to dig into my rear meat.

    here's a link to the mod so you can see how you like it. i found it puts the holster too low for me to get a decent grip.

    I've had it apart and together about 10 times just to get it perfect "for me". I could have lived with any of the positions but figured I may as well try them all.

    I have flipped the tabs and have it set to the most cant. Top hole on the back bottom hole on the front.

    I wear my sig around 4:00 with full FBI cant, it sticks the grip right into the hollow of my back, and i can hide my sig under a t shirt.

    I changed mine this morning to the FBI option (although that particular term is used loosely in this case).

    Carried all day and other than the obvious and unavoidable print when bending over it conceals very nicely and is comfortable to boot.

    Me likey.

    I actually ordered the other clips with my CTAC. I found being skinny, the front C clip is fine, but in the rear it sits lower due to the weight of the gun and comes out from under the top of the C clip and droops. I used the standard clip in the back to keep the back of the weapon at the desired length. It has no choice with the standard clip. (FBI cant, 4 O'clock) I also loosened the top set screw on the trigger guard side so it didnt retain the weapon so tightly. It still clips in the guard, but its easier to pull out. The only thing I don't like, is... it seems you can't draw from this holster without making that sliding noise. So no sneaky unholstering done on this one. Unless I can think of a mod for it, which I dont know what would do it right now.

    Considering that the small "click" is about to be immediately followed by a large "boom".....I wouldn't worry about it. As long as you can draw the weapon quickly. Maybe you should order another regular clip instead of that "c-clip".

    All else fails...return it. They give a full refund before 30 days, less shipping, no questions asked.

    I did the tab switch on mine and it conceals much better. I broke one of the tabs the other night adjusting it while bowling . $15 to get new ones. For now super glue holds it together.

    Ive tried every clip they make besides the V-clip and i have always gone back to the standard clip, it just works. My suggestion, buy a spare set and keep them around the house, you will eventually break a clip, i've done it twice.

    I'm not returning it, I like it. I did order the J's the C's and the standards so I could fool around with them all. The only option I didn't get was the Velcro.

    I use the V-vlips with the FBI cant. When I wear my Taurus Millennium Pro I am able to conceal it under just a t-shirt.
