I recently purchased a comp-tac MTAC for my current carry gun, which is a stoeger cougar. Although comptac does not make a kydex shell specifically for the cougar, I figured that I'd take a gamble and buy the 92fs version suspecting the cougar would fit (judging by photos/dimensions it appeared that both guns have the same trigger guard shape, and thickness).
I received my holster today and here are my thoughts:
- High Quality - the leather and kydex are extremely sturdy and the holster is an excellnt piece of craftsmanship.
- Amazing retention - even though I'm putting a cougar in a 92fs shell, the gun fits inside the shell and the retention is very good. It takes a very deliberate draw on my part to remove the weapon from the holster. The retention is adjustable, there are two Allen screws you can adjust to decrease/increase the retention.
- Stability - the holster stays firmly in place, as does the gun. This is excellent as my previous IWB holster was a don Hume 715 mwc open top. The Hume was not stable, it would move on all axes and sometimes come close to unclipping itself from my belt.
- Cant - I'm absolutely thrilled by the fact that the cant is adjustable!
In conclusion this holster has made my big heavy gun a dream to carry and conceal. The quality, retention, stability and cant adjustability make this an amazing holster. That and the fact that I can buy new shells for each gun I purchase is also amazing. I will never need to buy another holster again!

Sounds like a winner. Congratulations!

I have MTAC and Supertuck. I like them both. I am partial to the Supertuck because it is easier to reholster the pistol than the MTAC

I love my MTAC for my XD40. Once I got the cant and depth adjusted relative to the top of my waistband, it settled in perfectly. Very comfortable and stable with great retention for all day wear. Great product.

I have 5 Mtacs they are the best holsters I have ever owned.
I have both Mtac and Supertuck. I like them both. However, I am partial to my Crossbreed Supertuck.

I have the SuperTuck and the MTAC, as well. I prefer the ST for my Glock 26 because it is easier to reholster and I hear an audible click when the gun is seated all the way into the holster. No matter how tight I make the MTAC, I do not get the same click.
They are both very comfortable once the gun is in place and I do not have a problem wearing either of them all day.
Nice review and write-up! I'm in complete agreement that the MTAC is a great holster with fantastic features...absolutely love mine.
