    Just a suggestion, but wouldn't the M-Tac be a more fair comparison with the ST?

    I find the retention adjustment on the C-Tac to be more precisely adjustable than on my M-Tac, which is built like the Super Tuck.

    You guys are right about the design difference. Which is my main point. What are the advantages and disadvantages of more or less leather?

    I'm a big fan of the C-TAC. I carried my 1911 in one and now carry my P2000 in one. A classmate of mine got an M-TAC, didn't like it, and ordered a C-TAC. My dad has a Crossbreed product for his J-frame and it doesn't really hide well. I've worn it and I couldn't hide a J-frame either. But I hide my P2000 well in my C-TAC. -Just my experience.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    i originally bought the ST and thought there is just too much of it as a CCW holster. meaning the big piece of leather and all that. i then bought the C-Tac and use as everyday carry. it seems a bit less bulky than the ST also.

    One thing to be aware of is that the contact patch between the leather on a SuperTuck or M-Tac carries some of the weight of the gun, which reduces the load on the belt.

    I use C-TAC, CBSTD, and Comp Tac Minotaur Spartan, all with Velcro clips. They all work great, but IMO the leather ones soften the inside gun profile more comfortably. The all kydex C-TAC is slightly faster.
