    Smile How to Carry with Tucked in Shirt?

    I am wondering if anyone has expereince with carrying concealed but with their shirt tucked in. Do to my job I must have it tucked in, but don't have the need to every have sports coat on. Any suggestions.

    I have a .32 tomcat that I carry right now in my pocket but would like to either have my 92fs or 1911 on me instead. Rather think of the .32 as a backup.

    Looking forward to what anyone has to suggest.

    You can try Smartcarry or a Tuckable holster.

    You can search the Holster sorce links on this forum and get a lot more makers.

    Thanks will have to check out what Galco has on IWB. I have seen the Smartcarry and it looks to be quite a rig and difficult to draw from.

    Belly Band or Kangaroo style holster that holds the gun up under the armpit. They can be had to hold as small as a little 32 or up to as big as you want it. The heavier the gun the less comfortable and harder to conceal just like everything else.

    I can draw my snubbie from this very quickly as long as the top two buttons are undone and it conceals very well. Not comfortable for long durations and I've had trouble with it sliding down if not tight enough.

    I like the Kangaroo style, in that the weight hangs from the top of the shoulder and I will be playing with this idea when modifying my current setup.

    Tuckables with a full size gun look like you are hiding a full size gun under your shirt.

    I carry a snubbie using SmartCarry, I can draw faster than I can with a tuckable, but not as fast as IWB.

    any of these types of "Deep concealed" holsters work best with compact or smaller pistols. Papa Scout is right a full size in a tuckable looks like a huge buldge unless you wear really baggie clothes.

    I have 2 tuckables from UBG holsters. It's his newest one. Hides my Kahr PM9 & Taurus Mil Pro PT145 quite well.

    His prices & turn around times are very reasonable.

    I carry every day with a desantis tuck this holster. 90% of the time my shirt is tucked in. In Texas this is just the best way for me to carry, for my dress attire, and the climate. If I do wear a hawian shirt or t shirt untucked I still use the same holster. It works for me.

    When I decide to carry the 1911, I am forced to wear a vest for cover, and I don't really care for that method.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    At my job I'm lucky enough to get away with business casual which is typically khaki pants and a polo or golf shirt. Though there are people that try to get away with wearing their shirts untucked, to me it just looks sloppy and unprofessional. So my shirt needs to stay tucked in too. I wanted to experiment with a tuckable holster so I made my own (sort of). Read here about how to make a belt slide paddle holster into a tuckable one - http://www.combatcarry.com/vbulletin...ad.php?t=24554 - The Bucket Holster

    I've worn it several days and I really like it. Now I have to go out and buy new pants to give me a little more room for the gun. If you already wear your pants with that extra room then you won't need to, but if you're like me and have "expanded" since marriage then new looser pants are in order. I can totally see how people can hide a 1911 on a daily basis.

    I wear my dress shirt tucked in every day I go to work and carry my pistol, two mags, expandable batton, flashlight, cuffs, knife and soft trama plate. All under a dress shirt. For business dress, I use the UC Comfort 3XH t-shirt holster. But I've talked about that before, LOL.

    +1 on the Texas Heritage from Tucker Gun Leather. I carry a 1911 Commander - it tucks VERY easily and is invisible with just a minimum of shirt blousing......

    I am waiting on a Tarus PT1911ss and figure this will most likely be the carry gun. I take it weight distribution is alright for wearing all day with the Teaxas Heritage from Tucker?

    Also has anyone seen the or used the Tail Gate holster from Highnoon holsters?
