Behind-the-hip (4 o’clock position), tuckable, adjustable cant, slim profile, adjustable ride depth, interchangeable spare bodies the minotaur MTAC is the ultimate level of deep concealment on the market today.

The Neutral Cant, not only is it a hybrid between kydex and leather, it is also a hybrid between the Minotaur MTAC and Comp-Tac’s Two O’clock holsters.

The “Slide” version allows you to use one holster for similar guns of different lengths (such as Glock 9mm, .40, and .357’s).

A “Full-Coverage” version can be ordered by selecting your specific gun model. Standard Clips are available in black, chestnut, brown, and khaki, and C-Clips are available in black or chestnut. They fit check every holster with the actual make and model firearm ordered. As a result, the leather backing may show slight wear marks or scratches from the fit process.

Comp-Tac is pleased to offer gear made by Minotaur Holsters, a new company specializing in kydex/leather hybrid holsters. These holsters combine the speed and one-handed reholstering capability of Kydex with the comfort of leather. The Spartan is a “meat and potatoes” economy version of the MTAC. The Spartan is tuckable, you can adjust the cant, and you can get additional kydex half-bodies for different weapons, all like the MTAC. It’s not as pretty, and the fasteners aren’t covered, but it’ll save you a few dollars. The Minotaur Spartan uses the same clips as the CTAC and the MTAC.
Additional kydex bodies can be ordered (Spare Minotaur Bodies) but they are NOT the same as those used on the Gladiator and MTAC holsters. This holster utilizes the same kydex clips as seen on the Comp-Tac CTAC holster, which allow you to adjust the cant. With the clips offset from the holster body, the holster disappears when you tuck your shirt between the holster and your pants. The “Slide” version allows you to use one holster for similar guns of different lengths (such as Glock 9mm, .40, and .357’s). The Slide is typically slightly longer than the shortest gun of the series, and left open so the excess barrel length on longer guns can “slide” through the end of the holster. A “Full-Coverage” version can be ordered by selecting your specific gun model. Also, the Kydex half-bodies (made by Comp-Tac) are interchangeable, so you can order additional holster half-bodies to set your holster up for a different gun.
Black Arch Holsters ACE (Always Combat Effective) holsters provide the perfect combination of comfort and rapid deployment for concealed carry. That’s because each of their holsters is precision molded for your specific gun and built by hand. The new ACE-1 Gen 2 holster includes their proprietary comfort curve: a unique feature developed over months of testing that provides superior comfort. This is achieved by molding the kydex so that it creates a curve in the back of the holster. This curve allows the holster to fit the body more closely, increasing comfort and bringing the grip closer to the body for better concealment.
Other new features of the ACE-1 Gen 2 include user-adjustable retention for greater reliability, thicker Kydex for maximum durability, increased Kydex coverage for a more secure fit, higher density leather for improved wear, and a flared opening for easier holstering. While this second generation holster offers several design changes, it maintains all of the unique features that made the original ACE-1 a leading hybrid holster: durable kevlar stitching, precision-formed kydex, premium American leather, beveled edges, adjustable carry height and cant, sweat guard cut for a full grip, and availability for over 200 different handguns.
The Comp-Tac Two O’clock holster is an all-Kydex inside the waistband holster designed for concealed carry. Made to be worn at 2:00 on a right handed shooter this holster allows quick and easy access to your concealed carry firearm. The all-Kydex body on the Two O’clock provides a rigid material that is custom fit to each firearm and maintains its shape even with the pistol un-holstered. The smooth low friction surface allows for a fast draw and easy one-handed re-holstering of the firearm. The all-Kydex body will not bend or stretch over time and is impervious to sweat and solvents. The Two O’Clock Holster comes with a C-Clip style Two O’Clock clip. This clip has several holes to allow for adjustable ride depth. The “Slide” version allows the user to use one holster for similar guns of different lengths (such as Glock 9mm, .40, and .357). The Slide is typically slightly longer than the shortest gun of the series, and left open so that longer guns can ‘slide’ through the end of the holster. Slide versions of outside the waistband holsters are recommended for range work only. While carrying a longer firearm in a slide holster the end is left exposed and the user must be careful not to bump the exposed muzzle up against anything that might dislodge the firearm, i.e. sitting down in an arm chair. Not all models will have the de-bossing (make and model) listed on the outside of the holster.
