    i would like to upgrade from a fobus for my 23 and was looking at comp-tac. i am happy with the m-tac so i thought to look to them for a paddle holster.
    anyone use one?

    I have a couple for my Kahrs. I ordered them because price was reasonable, and turn around time for a LH paddle holster for a uncommon gun was fast.

    I like mine. I know a lot here like Crossbreed holsters. I tried one and it was uncomfortable. I usually have a Comp Tac Paddle, Desantis Paddle, or High Noon IWB in appendix carry on me.

    People rag the Fobus line but I have a couple of those for Glocks and HP and I'm happy with them too.

    I have a couple of their standard paddle holsters and have been very pleased with their design, quality of materials & workmanship and their customer service.

    They aren't my first plastic/synthetic holster by a long stretch, but in many ways I consider them superior to the others I own.

    I'll own more as time passes.

    I like my Comp Tac paddles.

    Is there a holster out there that allows for a faster draw? I've never experienced one!

    I have a c-tac paddle for my G30 and it works well. Just make sure you use it with a good gun belt.

    I just ordered 2 of their paddle holsters yesterday. I got the ones they call the speed paddle, straight vertical draw. I was wondering how close the gun sits to the body. Anyone got any pictures wearing one?

    I have a settable cant holster for a 5" 1911 w/both the paddle & belt attachment. I only use the paddle as it seats the weapon much closer to the body. This is the best paddle holster I have ever used or owned. This holster is definitely a high rise w/the paddle attachment, which is why I went for it, so keep this in mind if you are comparing it w/the other Comptac paddles.

    I didn't buy a second one because they were necessarily 'fast', but because the materials are very good and the holster sits high and tight to the belt line for a paddle design. My Hume H726 is a faster holster when it comes to actual presentation since it is a semi-open breakfront design (if you're an accomplished user of a thumb snap design, and that takes some amount of training and 'muscle memory') . http://www.donhume.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=65_5&products_id=49

    This leather holster allows the slide to clear the holster lower and sooner (below the bottom edge of the belt) and requires much less of a lift of the shoulder/arm. It also hugs the body very closely and has the typical forward cant which pulls the butt of the grip in close to the torso. Great plainclothes/off-duty holster.

    I like a high-riding, tight-to-the-body Comp-tac synthetic paddle for general range and less-critical/physically active carry chores where I don't mind a little less security (open top/friction retention) and aren't planning on trying to break any personal speed records for presentation. Handy, comfortable and sturdy for active range training situations in adverse weather. Easily cleaned.

    I have a vertical one for my G17, which I use in GSSF and USPSA shoots. I also have one with an FBI cant for my G19, which I use for carry. I upgraded from Fobus holsters, too. I like the Comp-Tacs a lot. They hold the pistol high and close to the body, they're very secure, and they offer a good range of tension adjustment via the tension screws.

    By way of another comparison, I find the Comp-Tac holds my G19 closer to my body than my Blackhawk Serpa does.

    I have several and like them very much. Keeps my weapon close to my body, the weapon is easily drawn and re-holstered and they are durable.
