    Update on my M-Tac

    Following the advice I got on this forum, I got an M-TAC for my G-26.
    Excellent service; the person I talked to suggested the model with an open end so it would fit all other Glocks with the same slide thickness, so I can carry my G-19 as well.
    I received it a week after and have used it for 3 weeks, alternating with a pocket holster.
    The reason I got this holster was to carry with no undershirt (South Florida in summer).
    At first it was a little rough on my skin, but as time went, it started molding itself to my body and now I can wear it for 12 hours and I actually forget I have it.
    As I learned here, a good belt makes a difference.
    So the M-TAC has replaced the FIST K-1 that I was using for the last 3 years (mostly OWB).
    The only question I have is that, as the leather conforms to the gun, I have to tighten the retention screws more and more; I just hope I will not run out of space.

    All in all, knowing what I know now, I can definitely recommend this holster. If I lost this one I would buy the same !!!

    Mtac is a good holster. One tip if the back bothers you you can pick up some mole skin at target or the like. I found as mine broke in more the rivits were bothering me a little (on the back side)but after the mole skin problem solved. It is a very comfortable holster. I also like to wear a wife beater under mine. I'm in FL too and it isn't too hot.

    +1 on the undershirt idea. I'm in the Ft. lauderdale area and use one when I carry.

    My whole idea was not to have to wear an undershirt; I find them not "aesthetically pleasing"
    Thanks for the moleskin advice; right now the back is fine, we'll see what happens.

    The backing never bothered me but what did/does is the leather actually sticking to my side. That's why I have the undershirt. I'm sort of a skinny guy, no gut. 5'9" and about 160lbs. Maybe that's why it bugs me a bit? Hard to say. It forms nicely over time though.

    The only question I have is that, as the leather conforms to the gun, I have to tighten the retention screws more and more; I just hope I will not run out of space.
    That shouldn't be the case. After a point, it will have broken in and the retention will be properly set. Sort of like how a leather holster comes super tight, and after a time it starts to get easier. Only to a certain degree, it should never wear out to the point of zero retention.
