I do have a Tyr IFAK I'm trying to figure out where to put, I'm thinking to the rear on my right side.

 

 

Frogfish how do you find running your pistol in that pouch? Just wondering because im thinking of using it.

I have not tried holstering my pistol in a CPC like that, but I have tried it in my LBT-6094a or an RRV in a similar position. It's definitely not the best draw, but it is not absolutely awful. Often, I found it to be a relatively comfortable way to carry a sidearm without being able to quickly draw it, which kind of defeats the purpose of having a sidearm in times of dire need. Personally, I find that holstering my sidearm on my belt in a SafariLand 6004 holster with a UBL drop-leg mount makes it a comfortable and quickly accessible solution.

Second to what MOOSE said, putting holster on a UBL or some sort of duty drop panel works like magic, especially when used conjunction with PCs or rigs with some thickness on your 3 or 9 o'clock position.

 

 

Oh by the way, how about cross-draw from the opposite side of the PC?

Due to the increased circumference added by wearing a plate carrier should make it difficult to use a cross-draw style holster position. Generally, I don't like wearing a holster because it is so often conflicting with my other gear, but now that I use the aforementioned SafariLand 6004 on a UBL mount, it does not feel uncomfortable to wear it. Most of the time I do not use a sidearm but when I do, I like to make sure that I can draw it without any problems. 

 

When I had a SEPRA holster with a MOLLE mount, I put it in the same position as the handgun in FrogFish's picture, however, it was on the outside of the cummerbund. That position added enough space between my body and the gun to be able to draw it fairly easily. Ultimately, it was not a holster position that I was comfortable with.

@GhostWolf - FYI, the UBL is a belt mount that drops the holster down a few inches, it is not a drop leg system (though some people will add a strap for added stability).  Its a comfy ride/draw height, but I've found that it is less comfortable while riding in vehicles (as compared to a standard holster on the belt or a drop leg).

 I had a kydex insert there to expedite the draw and even then it ended up on a belt, that bulky *albatross* PC is long gone though.

+1 on the UBL.  Best way to run something like a 6004 imo.

+1 on this method, instead I use a webbing with triglide which comes with a Guarder 3 day pack, cut out a hole and melt the felt with fire and directly screwed between UBL and the MLS mount.

 

I was not using the original 6004 strap because that thing is fruitcage expensive ( yes the strap ) and I would like to able to use the original harness configuration if I need to.
