As always, I was out of town on business for several days and the UPS man cometh, much to my wife's chagrin
Crossbreed supertuck, Highnoon split decision, and a smartcarry. Walked in the door last night after a late flight and the love of my life says "Hi" followed immediately by "how many holsters did you order?" Oh well, there are worse obsessions!
I am looking forward to a weekend of playing with my new toys, adjusting, tweeking, tinkering, sniffing (the leather parts of course) and generally messing with my new stuff.
I am new to carry concealed, and I strongly suspect most of my 'uncomfortable feelings' will go away when I use any of these fine products. The journey to comfortable carry is far more complicated then I presumed when I got my permit.
After 35+ years of hunting/plinking/cattle protection varmit shootin' carrying with one in the pipe has been very difficult for me. I can still hear my fathers voice in one of our many discussions about not chambering until it is time to shoot. In there lies the key. In ccw, you have already assumed that you may need it at any time, therefore, one in the pipe is necessary.
These holsters will help me establish a comfort level with the pistol being secure and stable, the trigger properly covered, and help with the unsightly bulge issues. Although, in light of full disclosure, the post 40 yr old bulges are far more unsightly!
saturday morning ramblings.......

Have fun, have a great weekend! Be safe while you're playing around with the options. One in the pipe is outlawed while 'playing' around the new stuff.

Yeah, let us know how they workout. I have a Split Decision and have been wondering how it compares to the Supertuck.

Congrats on a good start to your holster drawer!
FWIW, it took me some uncomfortable days to realize that the supertuck can be adjusted for cant by moving the clips relative to each other. Lower the rear clip and raise the front clip for a forward cant which, at least for me, was the most comfortable.
Let us know how they work out for you....
....and BTW, tell your wife that she shouldn't complain as long as your holsters don't outnumber her shoes.
Let us know how that works out for you too!

Nothing like getting new holsters especially leather

my wife didn't want to know how many. Her question was "how much are all these holsters costing?" haha. I said "the mtac was like 80 bucks" she said thats not too bad. Little did she know I didn't mention the addittional $15 to velcro clips, and the nice belt with Velcro lining. And the smart-carry. And that other one. Hahaha. I think I've got the itch to try a couple more too. I had no idea what I as getting into when I bought my first handgun.
