John_Deer - I agree.

I now have a paddle for the Blade-Tech and also the AlienGear Hybrid (it didn't get cancelled before shipping)...but thats OK. I think I like it and will keep it.

I am doing a write-up/assessment with pictures and will post when completed. The paddle on the Blade-Tech seems like the best choice right now with cooler weather/long shirts for CC. When Summer hits and the shorts & T-shirts come out that may change.

The one below is like mine, except I am using the belt loop attachment, because it shifts less and doesn't tickle me during the drills. As far as the carry spot, sitting down and bending over rules out anything before 3 o'clock or past 9.

I may get another complete Blade-Tech which comes with the Stingray Belt attachment and a Paddle attachment for about $22.00 from Walmart.

Then replace the AlienGear shell with a full wrap-around shell from Blade-Tech. The Blade-Tech included with the M&P has this type attachment. The Walmart item has both.
