Luv my CTAC.

CompTac is a fantastic company to do business with. I'm considering a new OWB or paddle setup for the range, and may be calling on their services again soon.

The CTAC is a great rig - and now I need a good belt to go with it......

i had never considered it vital, but the belt has a significant impact on overall comfort.

i'm still thoroughly enamored with my galco cop belt.

Comp-Tac Kydex C-TAC (the FIRST on this board to boot!) for concealed carry
Comp-Tac Kydex Belt straight drop for IDPA matches

I made Master classification in IDPA in 6 months using the C-TAC with my S9. Fast enough to win State IDPA matches should be fast enough to defend my life (I hope!) ;)

Jeff, no problem with the IDPA holster rules using the Comp-Tac belt holster? I have them for my Glock 17 and Glock 21, but so far I've been shooting USPSA. I plan on trying an IDPA match right after the new year...just wondered if they'll give me any problem.

Thanks!

Jim - I'm not Jeff, but IDPA shooters are a large part of Comp-Tac's customer base, and Comp-Tac has excellent service. I'm sure that Comp-Tac has made any necessary modifications to their holster to keep it within IDPA rules.

Jim,

Revchuck is spot on, Comp-Tac relies on IDPA competitors for a large part of their business and several top-level shooters in the Mid-Atlantic area use their holsters and mag-pouches exclusively.

I've never had a problem with SO's at several state IDPA matches (PA, NC and VA). I thought my personal Comp-Tac straight-drop belt holster has the butt of the gun sitting a bit far off the hip, but I think the IDPA rulebook has the holster rules focused on the amount of space between the belt and the body of the holster. I had a thread with IDPASteyr about this and he said he used a heat gun to slightly modify his Comp-Tac to be absolutely sure within the rules. I have never done anything to mine but have never had any problems.

I've never been interested in fancy holsters. Most of the time I use an open-style IWB Uncle Mike's holster on my strong side, with a casual leather belt keeping it snug against my side.

GALCO IS THE WAY TO GO!

When I first purchased my Steyr M-40 there were only a limited number of holster manufacturers that sold holster specifically designed for the Steyr M-series.

I decided to go with the GALCO Fletch High Ride Belt Holster it is an awesome holster with the following features:

1. Top-grade leather with double stitched seams molded for the M-series.

2. A forward slant or cant that allows for easy grip of the pistol.

3. Retention Strap that secures very strongly the pistol.

4. Full trigger coverage.

I wanted a leather holster instead of a synthetic to avoid wear on the pistol finish and a rentention strap to ensure that during a struggle or strong chase that my pistol would remain in its holster. However, there are time when i tuck away the rentention strap and the pistol is still very firmly held in place by the leather mold. I've worn it alot and it is very comfortable.

GALCO is worth taking a look at if you own an M-series.
