    Holster Time, MTac vs. K&D Dakota Defender

    Hard to beat the Mtac i hear, but the K&D Dakota Defender looks very comfy. Pros and cons? How long is the wait time on the K&D for a Glock 23 (yea, i commited to the 23. Only flip flopped around like 100000 times)

    This is where the Minotaur beats anyone.

    Invest in the base holster. Then you can buy holster "bodies" for the other guns you may want to put on your hip.

    I have used the MTAC since just after it came out. I really like it. I got a new carry gun and initially thought I would just end up buying a new body to carry the new gun. Later, I realized that I want to be able to switch carry-guns without taking the time to unscrew and attach the other body. My solution was to get a Dakota Defender for one of the guns. It'll probably take another 13-15 weeks (I ordered a week ago).

    So, my answer to your question was "buy both". Sorry, I wish I could help more.

    I have absolutley no experience with the K&D but I have been wearing an MTAC for the last five months. I wear it with a S&W M&P9 and a 1911, I just switch holster bodies.

    It is a great way to IWB and is very comfortable. There have been times when I almost forgot I was wearing it. It is an extremely fast holster that holds up well.

    My only negative about the MTAC is that you should try the C-hooks over the J-hooks. With the J-hooks your pants are supporting the holster and not you belt, this allows the holster to slip down a little instead of riding like it is supposed to.

    I have both and the Defender is by far the better holster. The MTAC is a good holster but comparing the two the K&D is (to me) the much better choice.

    Train and train hard, you might not get a second chance to make a first impression!

    I don't know if it's really a fair question. Both of these holster makers will provide you with a top notch product that will fit your needs very well. Of course the K&D is going to take a lot longer getting to you because for the most part it is a custom made piece, done one at a time, by one man. I wouldn't trade my Cochise for anything.

    You've all missed the obvious, BUY BOTH! You need to order the MTAC anyway while you're waiting for your K&D.
