IMO, half the function of a holster is to cover the trigger. This gimmick looks like a stray finger or shirt tail could easily engage the trigger, especially with a striker fired weapon like the OP has. However, it would be interesting to see the result of an ND with the plastic tube up the pipe. I'll anxiously wait for the Youtube video.
Like many, I have a box full of holsters. This is what has worked for me the best and it costs $10. This one is 4 years EDC now, but I have two more in the bag ready to go when this one quits. As you can see, I ran a couple of stitches through it to seal the trigger pocket. No big deal. I also give props to the Remora. That thing is amazing and does everything as promised.
Places the pistol directly against my skin.
Puts something up the muzzle.
OP, if you go with the king-tuk, please let us know how you like it. I have a cbst, love it, but am looking at the king-tuk for a different pistol.

I bought a King Tuck 6 months ago as my first IWB and it remains one of my most used holsters. I use it all the time when I tuck in shirts and also when I want ultra deep concealment. The extreme adjustability of the King Tuck makes it very customizeable to any cant or whatever height you want. It holds up really well and is a great holster. I continue to LOVE Galco products. I have the king tuck, the summer comfort, and just bought a cop 3 slot. All of them are exceptional.
If you do buy the king tuck I recommend gluing a piece of suede or something to the skin side. Helps it stay in place even better and makes for incredible comfort all day.
You guys might want to check out the Qwik Clip IWB from Crossbreed Holsters as an option.
I have it + the Supertuck and I find myself using the Qwik Clip more. Check it out.
It's fast, small, comfy and only ONE single clip to hold it all in place. Works well for me.

I have my king tuk on right now with my Kahr CM9./.. literally forget it is there. I have used the Crossbreed with Glocks and they are good too, but I really like the Galco, and can buy it at my LGS.
I like my AKJ Concealco AKJ Concealco LLC - Concealment gun holsters, personal defense related equipment, and other gunleather. I find it very comfortable and it conceals very well. I've been able to wear an XD45 Compact and a Glock 30 for 10 + hours at a time and forget that I'm wearing it. I wear mine at around the 3:00 position sometime a hair forward.
I only own one holster and it's a Crossbreed. I can't compare it to anything else, but I wear it for 10 hours w/o a problem.
I have no experience with the King-Tuk but I've used the Crossbreed with a Glock 23 and kahr K40 for the past year. After using other IWB holsters over the years I can say with confidence that the Crossbreed is the only one I'll buy from now on. I use the horsehide backer with V-clips. Total concealment with comfort.
I carry an XD .40 sub in a Galco King Tuk and I find it very comfortable. The holster is well made and the clips keep it from moving around. It took little time to conform to my body. I "forget" it's there. I am new to concealed carry (6 months) and it's my first IWB holster so I can't compare it to another. I would definitely recommend it.
