Jus curious where you carry if you own this holster?

I just received mine in the mail today and so far is nice. However i'm having issues concealing it. I'm carrying an XD .40 Sub Compact. 5'9" and about 160lbs. Gut by coors light (working on getting rid of that).

It's going to vary for everyone. I carry 9 o'clock (lefty 3), but i'm a lot bigger than you.

4 o'clock. I'm 5'10" at 170. G34. I moved the screw positions around and the revised angle keeps the grip flat against my right kidney. At least until I sit..

I am left handed and carry between the 8 and 9 o'clock positions.

I carry my Kahr PM9 at 3 o'clock. Usually under a tucked t-shirt. I adjusted the screw locations until I got the cant I like.

I carry my XD9SC in a CTAC at the 5 o'clock spot.
I'm 140lb, 30in waist. I adjusted the screws to give it the most forward cant possible, keeps the grip tight untill, as said above, I sit or bend, then it's out like a sharks fin. Comfortable most of the time.

I'm 510 and 210lbs (no gut thank you) and I carry a SA MC Operator 1911 at the 8 - 9 o'clock postions. No problems concealing it in a t-shirt and shorts.

I love that holster!

Thanks for the replies everyone... i'm starting to warm up to the holster. However i can only conceal mainly at my 5-6 oclock. Its comfortable there but not terribly fast.

I carried a SubCompact XD in a C-TAC for about 6 months. I carried it around 4 o'clock

4 o'clock with a Walther PPK/S and I'm 6'1", 160 lbs.

Gonna put my 92FS in the same place. Worked with my old USP .45F.

i'm your size minus 10 pounds. i carry a sig 226 in a ctac at three oclock. use the adjustment screws to get it where you want it. it took me a few hours to warm up to mine- don't give up on it yet- it's a proven holster.

3 - 3:30 seems to conceal best there.
I'm 5'9" 145 lbs wet.

I love it. You just need to set some cant into it, and I also have it "dropped" low.

I carry my G23 in a C-tac at about 3:30.

I put it on behind my kidney and then slide it counter clock wise as far as I can. There is no possible way to get the holster at 3:00, but I get it as close as I can. Canted forward it conceals well and draws fast. Bend at the knees.

I am 6ft 170-175lbs

I carry a Glock 19 in my CTAC at 4 o' clock on my belt. It took me about two full days to find the "sweet spot" for the holster. Don't be afraid to tinker with the cant by changing around the postion of the screws.

I'm 6'0", and I weigh 190-195 lbs.

It's a great holster, and I wouldn't trade it for any other. Enjoy!

I'm 6'2", 175lbs and I carry a full size 1911 in a CTAC at about 8 o'clock (left-handed).

Make sure you get the cant properly adjusted. Once you do this it will fit right up against your back and it will be very comfortable.
