    Every where I put it, it's uncomfortable. So concealed crew, where do you put yours at? Pics would be helpful, but if not, more to the front or back?

    And I was :rofl: at the candy they included along with the hand drawn smiley face.

    Took this the first day I got my Answer. Actually I wear it a little farther forward, but that's pretty close.

    Thanks man, how does it feel when you sit down? Does it jab you at all?


    And I knew I would get a lot of different answers, but I figured I would start with what the popular does, then if it doesn't fit me well, try the others.

    jeri- so pretty much on your hip?

    spank - so pretty much like that picture?


    And I know people will say "try all the spots until you see what fits you", but I'm just a pansy and since I just got this holster, I don't want to keep messing with the clips and what not right away. :hs: I want to get a good idea of where I could start and begin there.

    I suppose it pokes a little when I'm sitting but it's not too bad. It depends. If I"m going to be standing a lot I move it farther forward for easier draw. For sitting I move it back for comfort. If I'm going to be driving for a long time then I'll unholster and put the weapon in the door pocket.

    JaimieZXs picture is what I would consider a 4:00, 4:30, 3:00 would be directly where your hands would be when you hang them straight down your body

    I was always told the recommended position is right behind the crease on the side of your pants.

    I think my MTAC comes in monday. I wanted to order 'the answer' from Tucker but I simply couldnt wait 13 weeks or however long they said.

    I had to order a cross-breed because they are the only guys who have the P250 mold right now.

    It will be uncomfortable for the first week or two. To get used to mine, I carried it at 6:00. Now I carry @ 2:00 - 3:00.. I don't even feel it anymore, I can sleep with it on.

    MTAC conceals decently at 3:00+, it prints closer to 6:00 as you bend, but disappears under normal stance. It conceals EXTREMELY well from 1:00 - 3:00, but the comfort goes down exponentially as it moves inward.

    4:00-4:30.

    Just play with it a bit. I know you said that you didn't want to, but once you find the spot, you won't even know its there.

    the narrower ones look like they let you drop it a little deeper. otherwise theyre fine. :o

    That's what I have, and I love them. They're just as strong as the wider ones, and they allow you to conceal deeper.

    I broke one of my wide clips a few weeks ago (caught it on a chair) and had to order the new skinny ones.

    So yes, it's 14 a pair, shipping sucks, they are better than the wide ones (they're longer and adjust more), and they are not worth the extra 22 bucks. IMO at least.
