    MTAC trial by fire

    well i recieved it earlier in the mail today, and i tell you what i ripped that box open like a kid on christmas morning. i work part time at a jewelry store so therefore have to wear a suit and tie. i carried my fullsize 1911 for 5 hours in the mtac, and must say, amazing. i was constantly up and moving, had to bend over a couple of times and people never noticed it. i give it 5 stars, my buddy was so amazed with it that he whipped out his iphone and ordered one right then and there for his glock 30.

    Sounds like you're all set. Don't you just love getting packages like that? Sometimes I feel like I'm stalking the mail guy. Glad you like it... enjoy!

    Nothing beats a comfortable holster...isn't it a great feeling?

    Congrats on the new 'package'.

    The MTAC is extremely comfortable, I'm sure you will like it even more once its broken in and forms to your hip better. I really like mine.

    I love my MTAC as well. It took me about an hour of adjusting it until I found the perfect position, but now I can forget it's there. I DID forget it was there last week in fact. I had just gotten home from running some errands when our department got toned off for a house fire. I made my way to the station, jumped in my turnout gear and hopped on the engine. That's when I remembered I was still packing my 5" 1911. I had to run back outside and "unload" the holster/firearm while everyone on the engine was wondering what the heck was wrong with me.

    Just don't forget that part of finding the perfect carrying position is finding a position that you can draw from both fast and accurately. It may be more comfortable at the 5:00 position, but how fast can you get to it? Personally, about 3:15 for me with the front strap in the bottom hole, and the rear strap in the 3rd hole from the bottom.

    One more thing about the MTAC... I requested a slide through version so that I could carry my 3" and 5" 1911 in the same holster, but was told that option did not exist from Minotaur so I ordered one for a 3". When it came in, I just took a dremel tool to the bottom, opening it up a little so both my 3" and 5" fit perfectly.

    Congrats on your choice of holsters Tyler11B, I carry my 1911 at about the same position as you have yours in your picture, you might be able to make it disappear a little more, as I have by increasing the holster cant by one more notch, I've found mine prints less and I can get a better grip when drawing with the extra cant...airborne all the way!
    The first time you aren't armed and prepared may be the last time you wished you were.
