Things have been a little crazy lately.  I’ve been out of commission for a little while with some sickness, and then I had a birthday sneak up on me!  I don’t normally buy a lot of stuff for myself related to guns except at Christmas and when my birthday rolls around. This year I spent sometime thinking about it and decided to get the Minotaur MTAC holster.

One of our instructors got this holster a couple of years ago, and then another one of our guys bought one for a Glock.  After trying theirs on, I knew it would only be a matter of time before I had one of my own.

My favorite way to carry is normally a J-Frame in pocket carry with a homemade leather holster.  It is simple, effective and I can forget about.  Having done this for too many years to count, it feels natural to me.  My favorite way to carry a semiauto is to carry Inside the Waist Band (IWB).  IWB is the most concealable method for CCW carry.

For years I have carried a 1911 this way, but couldn’t find a way to make it work with my Glocks.  The one issue that most people deal with carrying IWB is that the butt of the gun tends to want to fall towards the ground.  I constantly feel like I am pushing the butt of the gun up.

Enter the Minotaur MTAC.  It is made with a leather backing for comfort against bone and skin, but it has a kydex holster that locks the gun in place well and allows one handed reholstering.  It also has adjustable belt clips that allow the holster to lock into place and eliminate the gun butt drop problem described above.  It does a great job of holding the gun secure, and it sucks the butt of the gun high against your body.

With a vest or outer garment this holster is rock solid.  But the best news is that with a polo type shirt it is totally viable.  I now have a go to holster for my Glocks, even my 17 which I never thought would make a great carry gun. As a final note, you can change Kydex bodies to allow you to carry all your favorite guns.
