    Looking at both, it looks like the major difference is the MTAC has a leather backing so you don't have to wear an under shirt, whilw with the CTAC you have to wear and tuck in your undershirt to keep your pistol from rubbing on your skin. am I correct?

    right now i always wear a white undershirt untucked and then a dress shirt untucked over it (that the current mtv style that chicks dig). what would you recommend I get? and what style belt clips for a 1.5" leather belt? this is for a S&W M&Pc 9mm

    i really like my MTAC. in my opinion the ctac doesn't offer anything over the mtac while the mtac has better features.

    I haven't used either, but I do recommend using a belt loop, instead of clips. They're much more solid.

    What size 1911? I'm thinking of someday getting something for a fullsize 5" 1911, for IDPA and hopefully eventual CCW.

    I just got my MTAC in. The dang Retention screws had me pulling the entire holster off my belt on draw. I have since lessened the tension, but it still sticks some times. Anyone know the best way to smooth out the draw? it's for a sig 228 btw.

    I never had that issue with my 1911 or G34 but if I had to guess i'd say wear it for a few days and let it fit itself.

    or loosen the screws more :o

    Guess I'm the minority, my MTAC isn't very comfortable.

    I have one of each. G19 in my CTAC and P226 in my MTAC. I really like them both. I'd say the MTAC is slightly more comfortable, but a little harder to reholster. And when I say slightly, I really do mean slightly. I wear either all day and really don't know they're there. I'm in jeans and Tshirts (no undershirts) and they're fine.
