    Well I can't help much with the delivery time, but I can say that I am in the same boat. After reading all the post about how great the MTAC is I finally took the time yesterday to order my self one. I have been using a Galco Sky ops holster for the past few months. As this holster has been good for me I just don't think it will offer the support that the MTAC is supposed to offer. So just as you I will sit and wait for what everyone says is the best holster they have ever had.

    just out of curiouicty, how do you like the sky-ops. i got that
    a few years back and never really enjoyed it. it pretty much
    collects dust in the holster drawer. not comfortable imo.
    so far the c-tac infidel is the most comfortable of my collection.
    i'm a southpaw so i wear it about 9 oclock. just curious. thanks
    in advance for any other input.

    IIRC, Comptac sends their orders by USPS Priority Mail ... you should have it in a few days.

    The Sky Ops has been a fairly descent holster. Although I do not have anything to compare it to because It is the only holster I have used since I got my CWP a few months back. I am looking forward to the MTAC and I hope it will solve my holster problems

    Took seven days for mine two weeks ago, and yes, I like it better everyday that I wear it.

    I recently ordered a MTAC and couldnt be happier with it. I ordered it on a Monday night, shipped on Wednesday and had it on my hip Friday afternoon. My F/S M&P 9 just disappears. Even came with a roll of smartties

    From Texas to Boston 2days, That is great Service. Now I will be doing some searching on how to make the draw smother less tuff. The Retention screws may need to be loosened. When the holster is IWB the force I use is unreal, I feel like I will rip the clips off, when drawing. Well some on must have had this issue….. off to my search.

    Same thing happened with mine.
    Just wear it for a bit and it will break in a bit.

    Also, I tend to push my thumb down on the extended part of leather to aid in drawing. sort of a thumb break if you will

    Make sure you work a good leather dressing in it.
    After a few days of wearing it, the leather will conform to your body and to the gun; you'll find yourself tightening the retention screws !
    I have more holsters than I can remember, the M-TAC is the one I prefer ... so far.

    Plus 1 on what JFL said. Wear it and it will adjust to you.

    As many of us have mentioned before, the MTAC (especially when new) locks in the gun due to the flex of the holster around the hip and the kydex shell locking onto the trigger guard. It has nothing to do with the retention screw -- you could back it all the way out and it would still happen.

    IMO you don't want to just wear it like that for SD while waiting for it to break-in -- you might need to draw in a hurry tomorrow. So most of us have figured out workarounds to solve the problem immediately, usually either:

    1. Heat the kydex around the trigger guard carefully, using a hair dryer or heat gun, and soften or flatten the molding so that it is less "grabby."

    2. Simply get in the habit of slightly twisting the grip towards your body as you draw. It doesn't take much at all, and doesn't slow the draw either since it becomes such a tiny part of the drawing motion. This is what I do, as it doesn't require holster modification, and shouldn't interfere with other holsters if you get in the habit of always doing it.

    After awhile the effect should be reduced by break-in, or in what position you wear it. Wearing it closer to the hip bone will make the holster bend more and cause it to lock in, whereas a flatter position will probably have less of an effect.
