    Do you guys have Wal-Marts up there in PA? If not - your local dept store or shoestore should have moleskin. It's sold with the shoe insoles, corn pads, foot powders, etc. It's sticky/adhesive on one side, padded flannel on the other.

    Sorry all...didn't mean to be flippant...

    The moleskin works wonders. I did this to my CTAC a few years back (along with switching the tabs). I find the moleskin needs to be replaced every year or so.(seasonally) I just peel it off, remove the glue residue with GooGone, wipe it down with denatured alchohol to assure adhesion of the new moleskin. I have covered the back of the holster, and the tabs and their associated speednuts. I just "knocks the edge" off wearing the hard kydex.

    Comp Tac arrived about 5min ago. I will let you know as weather around here for the next little bit will be well into the upper 80's and 90's with about 80-100% humidity.

    It gets a little, umm .... moist there I'll give ya' that. Just Look at what it did to that Sig P239 guy, he sweated down to nuthin'!

    Seriously though, give the tank top a try. The multi-packs are cheap at Wally World, it might not work for you but it's worth a shot.

    You bet we do! (but no nachos there)

    I'll take a look. Thanks.

    I've been wearing a CTAC w/ a G27 everyday for about 3 weeks. Im in Central FL, and I wear jeans or pants to work every day. I dont have much problem with the CTAC sticking to my skin. I DO work inside now instead of in the field, so take that as you will. The only problem I have had with the CTAC is that if you screw the kydex attachment tabs (J,C, or Standard clips) in too far the bolt will stick out and poke your skin/hip/butt/whatever. I have backed them out a couple turns now, and it seems to be ok.

    Added note: I'm a tall thin guy 6'1 160lbs.

    Well, placed an order for one last night. When it arrives I'll head over to Wally World and get some Moleskin and see how it does. I'll keep you posted. Thanks for all of the great information on your experiences. This is a great site with tons of great information.

    Yes it is an EXCELLENT site! Lots of good guys with good info to share...even though I manage to get SOMEBODY'S feathers ruffled quite often! I dunno...maybe I post too much, or say the wrong things, or attack the wrong people...or...all of the above! Oh well...that's life!

    as others have said a lightweight tank top wears nice under your over shirt. also your over shirt doesn't get as sweaty as the tank top absorbs most of your sweat.

    +1 undershirt, maybe even an "A" shirt (the kind you see in old movies). Works for me.
    Why is it that you always find things at the last place you looked?
    Because when you find something-you stop looking-Mooch
