    MTAC carry position

    So, I have been wearing my MTAC around the house a bunch in preparation for the arrival of my permit (hopefully) soon.

    I have noticed that it is somewhat uncomfortable for me to carry at 4:00 and sit down, but I haven't tried 4:00 with a different cant yet. I am leaning towards 3:00 carry with the default cant as being the most comfortable method, but I am wondering what other people have found works for them as well.

    I'm right around 3:00ish with my mtac. I adjusted the cant a bit more forward from default to bring the grip more up into my side to conceal better.

    I voted 4, but it really is closer to 3:30 posit.

    It's just a matter of taking the time to adjust it and wearing it in various positions until you get a good fit for you.

    It takes some time but it's well worth the effort!

    I didnt vote in the poll, I carry at 3:30. If I carry at 4:00, my grip digs into my ribs when driving. If I carry at 3:00, my gun is farther forward than I prefer.

    I voted "other" because I'm a lefty and this is obviously a pole to irritate those of us who are in our right minds I wear mine at just about 7:30-8:00, I carry a full-size 1911 and any other position is very uncomfortable on my hip, love the holster tucked or untucked.
    The first time you aren't armed and prepared may be the last time you wished you were.

    I voted other because my "sweet spot" appears to be between 4:30 and 5:00.

    Very comfortable holster.

    I realized that right after I hit post...too bad I can't edit it so the options are

    2:00/10:00
    3:00/9:00
    4:00/8:00

    I voted 4:00 but it is closer to 3:30, just behind the hip and with a slight forward cant. When I first adjusted the cant I initially lifted the rear of the holster to cant it forward. That made it more difficult to tuck my shirt, so I lowered the front of the holster one notch, and that has worked better for me.

    I voted 4:00 also but mine is more like 4:30. I gave it a little more cant and everything is perfect for me wheter standing or sitting.
