Drawing from a tuckable IWB holster
Good morning everyone,
I recently purchased a High Noon Split Decision holster, and I'm having trouble figuring out how to quickly draw from it. I've got to carry it at 4:30-6:00; having the holster anywhere else causes the pistol grip to stick out and it prints badly.
Has anyone discovered a good way to quickly untuck and get your shirt out of the way of the holster?
I have the split decision also
This is usually the recommended method.

I also carry it at 4-5'0 clock. At 3 0'clock it causes a bump in the belt line plus rubs on the hip bone. At 4 0'clock its a little hard to get the shirt out with the left hand as I said, it's hard to reach that far around. Another disadvantage that Ayoob points out with a two handed draw is that you might need your weak side hand to fend off an attacker.
One solution I have been going to more often is an untucked shirt when possible. Then you simple hook the shirt with your strong side thumb, lift shirt and gun. When gun is clear of holster extend hand down until clear of shirt and then outward.
Practice, practice, practice.
