As I mentioned in another post, I finally broke down and spent the dough for a good Comp-Tac holster.
I've been carrying my P6 in a basic leather holster from JBP Holsters. The JBP is the same holster many of you saw Breda carry her pink-gripped Bersa .380 in at the Blog Bash. It actually works well for lighter guns like the Bersa, and I carry my FS22 in one with no issues at all.
Carrying a P6 or similarly sized pistol in a JBP holster is an entirely different story. I would call it "adequate" at best after four days of carrying in Phoenix. Most of my CCW around here consists of short trips to PA where I'm rarely carrying for more than a few hours, but Phoenix convinced me I needed a better holster.
Enter the MTAC. It's not cheap at ~$90, but my initial thought is that it's worth the money. I ordered mine with the standard clips and a holster body for my Sig P229R. It's immediately evident this is a quality product.
The stitching and leather are excellent and the leather backing is soft enough that even carrying without a tucked undershirt is not uncomfortable. That's certainly better than carrying all day with hard kydex against your skin. That's actually the primary reason I bought an MTAC over a CTAC. I don't have any "natural cushioning" around my midsection and thought kydex would probably dig into my sides all day.
Also worth mentioning is Comp-Tac's customer service. The holster came with an allen wrench for adjusting the tension screws, business cards, a hand-written "thank you" and smarties. They also had the holster to me in about 5 days, despite quoting me a 10+ day wait initially.
I can carry a fully loaded P229R and it is, dare I say, comfortable! I never thought I'd be able to conceal any of my Sigs, much less a double stack 229R under nothing more than a T-shirt.
I only have two complaints. One, when I first put it on without adjusting the retention screws I gave myself a huge wedgie trying to draw the gun. If you buy one adjust the tension before trying it out, unless you like wedgies. Two, (and this is a completely random, useless observation) the leather just plain smells bad.
Now, for some pictures.
Wearing the smallest T-shirt I could find, a Gap Stretch T.
A darker color would conceal far more effectively as well.
If I twist my torso enough it prints, but I am carrying a good sized gun on a thin frame.
I'm thinking I might need to buy one now for the P6. The P6's and P228 will fit in the 229R body, but I'm not sure that's the best way to carry them. I'd rather have a holster made for the respective gun.
