    .........about the clips showing on your tuckable holster. I just got mine and was wondering if anyone had ask what the clips were for, and if so what response did you give.

    With all the cellphone holders and other belt accessories out today clips on pants are almost commonplace. If youre that worried about it, then simply purchase a cell phone holder and place it close to the exposed clips.

    More than likely people wont notice anayways, and if they do, its really none of their buisness anyways.

    A number of holster manufacturers (examples at comp-tac.com or tuckergunleather.com) offer IWB holsters supported by J-clips, where the clip passes behind the belt, C-clips, where the exterior face of the belt is not covered by the clip, and V-clips, which don't show at all because they attach to the inside face of the belt with velcro, although you have to prepare each of your belts in advance.

    If someone ever asks me what the clips are for, I am prepared to say that it is a rather private matter that I prefer not to discuss in detail, but that the clips support a medical device that just might save my life someday.

    I like the J Clips as well. My respnonse will be ( though never needed yet, most sheeple are clueless ) "It's a medical pump". I'm just not saying what it actually pumps!

    You'd be surprised if anyone notices anything at all. I wear a pocket knife that has a silver clip on it behind my belt so that when I wear my black slacks for work the clip comes down past my belt a couple inches. With black slacks and a silver clip, there's no freaking way that anyone with half a brain can mistake that it's there. Well, I can tell you that no one ever has said anything about it.

    Whether someone has noticed it, they know what it is or they have no clue, I don't know. But I can tell you that no one has ever called me on it.

    Cheers.

    I don't think it's an issue at all. As has been said, everybody's carrying something clipped to their belt these days. Nobody thinks anything about it. If someone is staring at your belt too much, maybe they're just interested in you . . . ifyaknowhudImean.

    I usually have at least a tee shirt covering my weapon and sometimes a vest, in winter a jacket. I keep my wallet in my left rear pocket when carrying so I don't lift my shirt or whatever exposing anything on my gun side.

    No tuckables for me but I don't have to wear business clothing either!

    I have been carrying for a number of years and have many friends who carry.

    I make it a habit to try to make them when I know my buddies are carrying. About 95% of the time it is difficult or impossible to make them.....and I know they are carrying.

    Most people are oblivious to the fact that you are carrying and could care less.

    Some folks carry a double stack or 2 single stack mags in a cellphone holster. The older style Nokia ones are a perfect fit for mags.
