    Which holster do you think would work better for concealed carry? The Comp-Tac C-Tac, Comp-Tac Gurkha, or the Milt Sparks VMII? Or is there a better one altogether?

    i have the CTAC and love it
    it stays put very well (dont need to constantly adjust it and realign it while you are wearing it)
    it is comfortable enough to wear all day and then some (ive had mine on my side for almost 48 straight hours with no discomfort)
    i like that it is tuckable (sometimes you simply have to tuck the shirt)
    its very thin and holds the gun close, so it doesnt print much and doesnt bulge out one side of your waist band like some other holsters ive tried do (hard to conceal when you have what looks like an 8lb tumor on your hip)
    it draws very fast
    it holds its shape so reholstering is as easy and smooth as drawing (no fussing around and forcing needed, simple one handed use)
    its flexible where it needs to be so it forms well to pretty much anybody

    I used the Comp-tac Infidel with the gurkha strut and it worked quite well. Very concealable and quite comfortable for a Kydex...

    I think I'm gonna go with the Comp-tac Infidel or C-tac when I get my M&P. But it'll probably be the C-tac.....unless I have enough money to get both :)

    I wore the C-Tac for over a year. Its a fine holster but I might have gotten the Gurkha if I had to do it over.

    I think we might be able to give a better idea of what would be "best" if we knew what was going in the holster?

    The VMII isn't even close to the same league as the CTAC or Gurkha, but knowing what your are carrying we might be able to give you alternates, if possible (I know the HRLTD is my favorite for a 1911 over the VMII).

    After using good kydex holsters I just don't like the leather ones anymore. I like the positive feel and smooth draw and reholster of the kydex. When I do drills I will draw and fire and reholster dozens of times. Kydex is nice for that.

    youre right, the gurkha is much better than a vmII.

    I like the comp-tac minotaur kydex/leather hybrid. Best of both worlds, and excellent concealment.

    i like my C-TAC but have been wearing my raven more often.

    both are well made and fit...but the raven is just a hair better with the "close" fit.

    I traded in a Comp-Tac Ghurka on a C-Tac. The C-Tac has been great.

    I too, am interested in the aforementioned holsters for an M&P compact. I have a blocky body type and have been using a smart carry, but I would like to get a holster that's a little more accessible. The only thing about the CTAC is that it seems like it would get quite uncomfortable having the plastic rub against you all day without some moleskin.
