Im a fan of my super tuck because I dont have to worry about getting/shaping new kydex ! Mine is for the P30, If I get the P30L, it fits, simple as that. Same as the XDsc and "regular" size XD, whatever that means
I would imagine either would be fine but I'm pleased with my purchase.
Both work fine though, and combined with a quality Beltman horsehide product make even a heavy gun comfortable all day.
I used to have a Supertuck for my J-Frame, but I sold them both when I decided to trade the revolver for a pocket auto. I also have a Crossbreed belt, and one of their OWB holsters for my G22/G27. So yeah, I like Crossbreed products too.
More professional looking fit & finish
Multiple tension adjustments
Metal belt clips, more durable than the Kydex C-Tac clips
Both companies make good gear, and it's hard to go wrong with either one. Both offer a military discount as well, if that applies to you. IMO, C-Tac has a slight edge, but it's close.
...the MTAC, which I just purchased for my 1911. I only have about two days with it so far, but it is the same great quality I expect from Comp Tac.
I'm sure the Crossbreed is a good holster. You'll not regret the CTAC or MTAC if you decide to go in that direction, though.
C-TAC clips are no longer Kydex. They are injection molded polymer.
I honestly wasn't sure what they were made out of, so I took a shot in the dark. Either way though, metal is more durable.
Not even close.
I like C-Tac products, and FWIW, I've never had any of them fail. I also don't have anything against polymer components - I own several polymer framed pistols, and a Magpul MOE AR15. I even trust my long guns to a Pelican case when I transport them. But metal is still more durable. If it wasn't, they'd make the entire Glock out of plastic, instead of just the frame.
Anyway, sorry to threadjack. We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.
I'm in the middle about the clips.
On the one hand, I've managed to bend an old (cutout cross) CB clip, CB sent me a new complete set of mounting hardware after a polite EMail abnd it was the new (embossed cross) clips, which I haven't managed to damage in any way at all. I have one embossed in reserve, because only the front clip needed repair, plus I have the repaired old clip in reserve, some time with some wood shims and a vise got it back in working shape.
On the other hand, I have a Tucker magazine carrier of similar design to the CB ST or comp-tac's products and it has shaped Kydex clips. Twice I've managed to bend the front clip in the exact same way I borked a CB clip, and twice I've had that clip back in shape with a hairdryer and ~5 minutes' time.
Each time I damage a clip I notice it after hard outdoor work, I think I'm doing it when I plop into a car seat and the clip snags on the seatbelt ... but as I only notice it after, all I'm sure of is that I occasionally kill a clip as the final note of a really long and exhausting day ... one can be fixed on the spot and one needs more time and/or spare parts.
I chose CrossBreed, and am quite happy with that choice for a number of reasons. I like having two carry-ready guns loaded up and in the holster, so I can't imagine swapping shells. How hard is it to swap them out, anyway? Are they labeled or do you just have to know which is which?
I'll take open with a properly flared opening, please ... closed means no swapping in a longer gun and it means more dustbunnies will collect.
Open means a longer gun will fit (imagine officer's and government -size 1911s, for example) and the dust may get in more but it falls out just as fast. Also sweat will evaporate faster, I keep my leather backers in good shape with Obenauf's leather preservative so I just wipe them out with a damp rag whenever I clean the pistol, they'd need more drying time if they were closed, I'd think.
Honestly CB has gotten me my gear faster than their FAQ would indicate three times so far, I think they're just being pessimistic to avoid overshooting their promised delivery date. If you're getting a common model's mold, wait time is ~2 weeks, in my experience
Kholster; same design, half the price.
I'd love to see the super tuck that will use one kydex unit to holster my P226, P229, MP40, PF-9, and LCP. If they really do make such a product I'll buy one immediately.
End of story, and end of debate.
As would I, and thats not what I meant( not 20 different makes/models). Maybe you should re read my post. P30/P30 L will work, G17, 19,26 will work, XDc/XD full size will work. Ya get it ? Maybe it also does with the ctac but, as I also stated above, I dont have one/ no experience with one. But since you do, by reading your post, why dont you elaborate for us.
