    Default Tuckable IWB holsters

    anyone have a recommendation for one? G33 needs a new home. It is either find an IWB that has the extra bends in the clip to make it so it still attaches to my belt with a shirt tucked in OR make a custom clip for my Don Hume holster.....

    I've been using a Crossbreed Supertuck (http://www.crossbreedholsters.com/beltslide.html) for a few months and am pretty happy with it. While I routinely wear my shirt out over it, I've worn it many times tucked with polo shirts and dress shirts, both to the office and out to dinner with a full-size M&P 40 and not had any concerns.

    It could use a more discreet clip than their Quickclip, it sticks down a lot below the belt. I tried the J-hooks but they pulled my pants down behind the belt too much. I've been in correspondence with them and they say they are going to have a different clip, but no sign of it yet.

    I'm considering putting Velcro on my belt and trying Vecro clips completely behind the belt; anyone tried that?

    Galco's U.S.A., U.D.C., and SkyOps. But, I can only personally vouch for the U.S.A. Very nice little holster.
    BTW, if you wouldn't mind, once you do decide on a holster, if you could post up to keep us informed I'd really appreciate it; I'm always looking out for success or failure with IWB's. But, if not I completely understand.
    Good luck.

    Well since we are discussing IWB holsters I will give a little review of 2 I have recently picked up. FYI I carry a Sig P220 Full Size behind the hip.

    Both are Don Hume

    First the PCCH

    PROS: Easy to put on and take off as the belt loops have snaps. It holds the gun quite firmly.

    CONS: The holster is sloppy on my hip. I get the feeling that it could shift unexpectedly and cause the butt end of the grip to print badly. The problem is that the belt loops require a belt wider than I am comfortable wearing. When drawing it does try to shift and if I don't draw at the proper angle it shifts and the gun binds in the holster. Perhaps with some more break in this won't be an issue. It's only available in saddle brown and doesn't "hide" as well as black.

    OVERALL: I don't see myself using this holster with any regularity.

    Now the H715M-WC

    PROS - Very comfortable and stable. Very strong clip holds it firmly in place. After a couple days of break in it draws very cleanly. I put strips of painters tape on the slide of my gun to widen it for break in. The black clip against a black belt is hard to spot if my shirt were to ride up above my belt.

    CONS - Much more difficult to put on than the PCCH. Taking it off isn't bad but on is tough. Have to pull the clip away from the holster slightly to get my belt and waistband into the clip. Easiest to take the pants off and clip the empty holster on and put the pants back on. I am afraid that it won't take long before the metal fatigues from me pulling on it and it's grip on my belt will loosen. So far it isn't collapsing when the gun is out, easing holstering, but I suspect it eventually will.

    OVERALL - If the clip holds up I will be very happy with this holster for along time.

    I swear by Tucker stuff. Not cheap but as good as they can be.

    If you want kydex get a Comp-Tac CTAC.

    If you want leather, get a K&D Cochise Defender. Tucker leather IWBs do not have a mouth reinforcement and that is a must-have for me.

    If you want leather and kydex get a Comp-Tac Minotaur. Tucker's Answer is the same solution but take a hell of a lot longer to get.

    Avoid the Crossbreed Supertuck. I do not recommend it based on personal experience.

    Here are my K&D Holsters Cochise Defenders:


    Here's my Comp-Tac CTAC:

    Tucker came out with a new type of holster a couple months ago. It's leather lined Kydex. Model is Silent Thunder:

    Gun control is not the answer. Gun control is the question. The answer is NO.

    I just received a K&D Dakota Defender for my M&P 9c and while it's a nice holster and a good value, I don't like it as much as the Milt Sparks Versa Max 2 I have for my P99c. I have the kydex clips for the VM2 but I have never tried using it as a tuckable - only as a plain IWB.



    I find the long kydex clips/hangers for the K&D to be nice for adjustment, but the kydex overhanging the holster digs into my leg. I guess I could trim it but I need to wear it a while before I commit to trimming it and losing some adjustability for an extra-deep carry. The opening on the K&D is asymmetric to the center line of the gun, such that the front sight is scratching up the left side of the interior of the holster after just a few draws and re-holsterings. The front sight on my Walther lines right up with the inside-outside seam of the VM2 holster pocket.

    The K&D is nice, but tomorrow I'm going to order a VM2 for a Walther PPS. Hopefully I'll have both holster and firearm by the end of this year.

    Just ordered the Milt Sparks VM2 for the Walther PPS. Should be here in October. Hopefully the gun will be available by then.

    Wow! That is one big heavy handgun to be using as a CCW. Not meant in a bad way if it works for you though.

    As to the OP, I've used a tuckable C-TAC to carry my Glock 26 and a Kahr PM9. They seemed to work pretty good.
