Comptac Minotaur

Well, just got in my Minotaur holster today, and looks like my damn XD 40 4" is too big for basically either 2, 3, or 4 o'clock carrying.

This is with a T shirt. During the winter with a jacket, obviously, no problem.
I tried canting it one way or the other, makes no difference, you can either see the back of the gun with it angled forward, or the bottom of the grip/mag with it angled back.
Theres also an issue with having the pants at a normal level
If I pull them up where they are supposed to be, it shows more, vs sagging them down a bit it tucks into the hip area more...

Another issue seems to be, the most conceable spot(between 1-2o'clock) is the one place you can't have it and sit down wearing it.

Nice holster, but im either going to have to get some baggier pants/shirts, or a smaller gun.
Im leaning towards the slightly smaller subcompact...(Since I bought the slide holster)

That is a big gun to carry around. I only do the big gun thing with sweaters and jackets.

I kinda knew it might not conceal well, but I thought maybe with a broader holster it would help conceal the outline some.
I thought wrong

A 4" pistol is heavy to haul around all day.

Now you have an excuse to buy a new gun this weekend at the gun show.

Its not that heavy, the size is more of a problem than the weight is IMO

I thought the only one coming up was the 24-25th at Dallas Market hall?

Ive heard sometimes its not as good, but as long as the prices are the same they should still have a few guns to pick from...

I hear it's not. But if you know exactly what you're going for, you can probably still save a bunch.
