I'm a southpaw that carries a 1911 with an ambi thumb safety. I have been carrying in a Mtac for 9 months. I like that I can carry it for 12 hours with no problems. My one complaint is that there is no safety channel in the leather, so the thumb safety keeps disengageing.

Being a southpaw also and having the same issue with the extended safety everyone is putting on their 1911's these days. I found the solution is a little dremel work on the left safety lever and cut that puppy down to the original 1911 specs. It will no longer be a problem. I carry in both and MTAC and a VMII and have no more problems.

I have 4 MTAC s and I carry one everyday all day. The only time I have felt the least bit uncomfortable is when I did not have the holster in my "sweet spot", and usually just a simple shift will remedy this. For my money the MTAC is the best holster for the money and the Lrd knows how many I have tried over the years.

I just got my MTAC a few days ago. Very comfortable. The only issue I had with it was that the hard kydex part of it was sticking out a bit far and marred the wooden grips on my 1911. A little dremel work on the offending part of the holster smoothed it away from rubbing on the grip and now it's great.

Well I just got back last night from the great state of Tennessee. Wore my MTAC the whole time driving up and back, and I have to say my Kahr felt as snug as a BUG in a rug..... LOVE it!
Glad I was carrying in some of the rest stops!
Gotta love Tennessee also..... especially the Bass Pro Shop I went to near Knoxville; WOW, I was like a kid in a candy store!

I ordered mine at 11:00pm on Wednesday of last week. I received it on Tuesday of this week, with e-mail updates all along. Nice note from Tiffany, along with my Smarties.
I carry a 4" XD40, and it's by far the most comfortable IWB I've tried, and it disappears under an untucked t-shirt (and I'm not too svelt at 5'10" and 215#). Not as comfortable as my 642 J Frame in a pocket holster, but then again, not much is. For IWB, the MTAC is incredible.

The one thing I would worry about is the clips; I might order some extras in case these break, as there seems to be a lot of strain on them when I am wearing it.

You can't beat a Tucker
Mine broke on me. The only second one he ever had with the kydex part. He fixed me right up and sent me a brand new one. I had one of the older ones that did not have the lifetime warranty.
We came to a deal and he gave me a deal.
I am very happy camper. I have had mine for over 4 years.

Just ordered one for my PT1911 on Thursday (Oct 23) and am expecting it next week, was a little hesitant because I'm a southpaw also, happy to hear from Grandpa and Jeff about their experiences, how does the tuckable feature of the holster work for a full size 1911?
The first time you aren't armed and prepared may be the last time you wished you were.
