WOW ! fed_ wis, you carry more stuff than Batman, an under a tucked in dress shirt to boot !!! I'd guess your nickname could be " Lumpy ", How do you manage to hide all that stuff like you do ???

No lumps.....just careful selection of clothing. The funny part is you cant tell its there, unless you hug me, and NONE of you (well possibly Betty) are gonna get to hug me.
Oh if thats J Lo then dang that girl's gained weight, LOL.

I have the same Tucker "The Answer" holster as RodC13. Unfortunately, it doesn't "tuck" well for me.
Right now I carry under a tucked-in shirt with a Galco Underwraps belly band. For a while I carried my 3" Kimber 1911 at 4 o'clock with the belly band. Unfortunately, the gun wasn't as tight to my body as I'd like. More than once I made a loud "clunk" when I bumped the gun butt against a metal door frame.
My current carry is a S&W J-frame at 1:30 in the Underwraps. It conceals well and is reasonably comfortable. The downside is the belly band. By the end of a 10-12 hour day, the band is tiresome. When I take it off, the first thing I must do is hit the john for some quality time. When I don't wear the belly band (such as weekends), my digestion reverts to normal.
YMMV one hell of a lot.
At my job I have to carry tucked as well and I find the Comp-Tac C-TAC to be one of the best holsters for concealed carry unless you have something against kydex.
As far as it having 2 clips being visible you can go with the v-clips (Velcro) and concealment trumps just about any single clip holster there is. The twin clips spread the load over a wider area, allow the holster to have adjustable cant and holster height, and allows the holster to be thinner and bulge less and the clips are spaced away from the bulging area as well.
Only you can decide what will work for you and what you will like.

<---------------------The reason I carry.
On my 6'4" frame, my Tucker Answer carries a full size 1911 stabily and securely all day everyday. It tucks perfectly and refuses to print, even under a thin t-shirt. BEST IWB HOLSTER I'VE EVER TRIED!
Nothing else comes close.
