    I have a Task inside the waist band holster. I carry in 4 o'clock position.

    I'm not real fond of Appendix carry. Not fond of the idea of having the grip below the belt line either. Seeing that the smartcarry has no mechanism to keep it from sliding below the belt line would make me not very fond of this type of holster.

    I usually limit Mak carry to hot weather. Lately, the weather has been unusually warm, so I was carrying it on Christmas week. Broke a sweat on Christmas day frying the turkey.

    I use the Don Hume JIT Slide holster for carrying everything.

    I don't have a pictire of a Mak in the JIT but this is what the holster looks like.

    I have the same holster. It holds the gun close to my body with excellent retention. My Mak just seems to disappear on me with the JIT. I think they're less than thirty bucks too. I highly recommend it.

    No idea. Rust simply is not an issue in my experience... but I live in a dry area.

    Humid way to carry. With routine cleaning, not an issue. I typically save the SmartCarry for firearms that are not as prone to rust. I stick to fanny pack carry when working out.

    I do not carry it regularly, but I like my JIT slide for my Kahr PM9. So much so that I am thinking of getting one for my Glock 36. On that same principle, it should work well for a Glock 26.

    I have been carrying mine in a Tagua IWB that's made for a Kahr CW9. I have found that any holster made for a CW9 will fit my Mak like it was made for it.
