I just rec'd in the mail today my new Comp-Tac paddle for my 229R (.40). For the record it does NOT work for my 226R (9mm). I had pretty much confirmed that anyway, but now it is for sure. I still am not sure if I like it. Those others of you that have one, please comment. Granted it is brand new but it seems that I have to use both hands to draw. I have adjusted the screws and the retention is great. Too great, in fact. I have to use my opposite thumb to apply a small amount of pressure to the curve where it goes into my waistband. When I do this it slips in and out very easily. Otherwise, I can tug and tug and it won't come out, even when I loosen the screws all the way. I will say it grips on my belt well and pushes the butt of the gun into my side so it conceals well under a shirt. I guess time will tell. O ya, it seems like this holster is going to cause some wear down the top of the slide. It has already marked it up slightly. I buffs out with just a soft cloth but I fear this will in time cause some wear marks.

Also rec'd a MTAC for my new Glock 19. I have raved about my CTAC for some time. However, after trying on this MTAC. I am sold. Now I wish I had another MTAC instead of the CTAC. It is much more comfortable and just as invisible. My only complaint about the CTAC has been some occasional discomfort when I wear it against my bare skin (no undershirt between my skin and the holster). The leather backing on the MTAC will completely solve this problem. I highly recommend the MTAC, even over the CTAC. Another good thing about it is you can order just the "body" of the holster and use the same rig for different pistols. See their website for details.

Yes, those are dog hairs in the pics. I took these on top of an old blanket we cover the bed with while we are gone.
