    On the Ruger and XD boards everyone raves about Supertucks... :ugh:

    Is it just because they're cheap? I don't get why someone would choose that > MTAC.

    I own two (got one free because they messed my order up). I don't like it... the gun sits to loose in the holster IMO (Glock 23 at the time). I bought an MTAC after that an like it a lot better.

    Plus on crossbreed holsters they brand in the inside with a cross (their logo) which I didn't like.

    I did a lot of research between Supertuck and MTAC and decided to go with MTAC. After getting an MTAC it is the most comfortable and best quality holster I've seen. I have another one on order right now.

    I owned one Several years ago. It looked like a middle schoolers class project.

    I'm sure I'll get a bunch of shit for this, but oh well.

    When I was shopping for a holster, I was liking the MTAC and the Supertuck. But I saw the Kholster on sale for super cheap, and sometimes I like to give the cheap stuff a try to see if it works before dropping the bucks on the nicer stuff.

    Honestly, I haven't felt the need to try anything else. It's ugly as hell, and I had to trim the leather once I found the right positions, but other than that I'm a fan. It's also tuckable . Most folks on our local forum have gone with it, too. Don't knock it till you try it (because it's really ugly).

    I don't think I've ever seen the Kholster. My opinion is that I just don't find $80 for an MTAC all that expensive. You've already dropped probably around $500 on a carry gun, a couple hundred dollars at least in hollow points for testing and for your ammo stash. $80 just doesn't seem that much more for a quality proven item.

    Not knocking on your decision...just explaining why I feel there is no need to skimp out on something that isn't proven by as many

    Had an MTAC for my XD9SC, liked it a lot. Sold it along with the gun when I got my 642. Dunno what I'll get for an IWB for the 642, for now I've just been using an Uncle Mikes OWB and pocket holster.

    I need to find someone near me with Raven's Kydex. That shit looks so uncomfortable but people rave about them.

    I was just reading [this] yesterday, it looks like working with Kydex to make your own custom holsters could be a lot of fun, and save money! I'd love to try it some day.

    +1 for the Kholster, extremely adjustable, inexpensive, cut the excess leather as much as you want and if you screw up, send it back for a free replacement, no questions asked.
