    I wore mine alot when I got it but I find myself wearing it less and less.

    I can be adjusted to conceal extremely well... but otherwise I don't find it particularly comfortable, stable, or smooth to draw from.

    I just wish it held the gun more securely...my Infidel has the tactile "click" when you holster the weapon. I want that.

    my CTAC clicks with my g27 and i still prefer my sig p226 in my vm2 - i can draw the sig quicker, it's just a pain i the ass to carry - i'll probably look towards a vm2 for my g27 sometime in the near future

    they ship fast and have more adjustments than the clips i originally got (one of my clips broke a few months after my warranty expired and they still sent me 2 new free clips - great customer service)

    even with a very thick belt from thebeltman, i still have a little sag if i don't tighten the belt all the way - i can't imagine carrying without a belt - seems like it would be too heavy, even with a cw9 - i'd look towards pocket holsters but it still seems like a cw9 will be too heavy without a belt assuming you are relatively active and not just sitting around

    i've been carrying it regularly for over a year and i had 1 of the old clips break on me - the new clips are supposed to address the weight distribution issue they had with the old clips that caused them to break

    Yeah I tightened mine down all the way and it doesn't click. Otherwise MTAC FTW.

    I like mine too, but it moves a lot, it won't stay in place. It likes to migrate to my back when it started out at my side.
    Other than that, it's a great holster for the price. Retention is good, although not spectacular.

    Nothing beats leather. Good leather.

    I have a VM II but wanted to try an MTAC as well so I just ordered one. I have also been in severe need of a good gun belt so I ordered one of those while I was at it as well haha.

    i find that as well. i usually try to position the clips based on the location of the belt loops and that helps with it moving.

    I do too, but every pair of jeans is different. And it still moves, which it shouldn't.

    Got my replacement clips today, they do look to be sturdier than the other ones. narrower and more adjustment points is a nice touch, too.

    it's too bad they can't figure out a better method of adjustment - pushing the rubber piece flat while trying to put the screw in with the hex key is a PITA - luckily once you find the proper angle you generally keep it there, but still kind of a pain (it is nice to have the adjustment capability though so i can aim the barrel back a little which helps conceal the grip/handle - this is probably the only thing i like about this holster over my vm2)
