Hey guys.....I need someone with a crossbreed supertuck that carries a weapon about the size of a springfield xd .40 subcompact to chime in please....... or anyone else that knows what is best here.
I am 6'-1" and 195 lbs.....athletic type of build. I have been carrying my springfield xd .40 sub compact on an ankle holster with jeans and a t-shirt type of dress or OWB in colder weather with heavier clothing. During summer months I just haven't carried because I didn't have a good way of concealing this gun with shorts and t-shirt (or jeans and t-shirt when the ankle holster is uncomfortable)........ until recently.
I purchased a crossbreed supertuck and received it two days ago. I wore it all day yesterday and all day today and it is extremely comfortable. BUT....my problem is, and the problem I can't figure out how you guys hide..... is that there is a buldge in my pants where the gun is (due obviously to the holster plastic and gun). I wear my shirt tucked in almost all the time and even my wife made the comment just a few minutes ago that the buldge is quite obvious. I know not many people pay attention to something like in the general public and that and me knowing its there is a big mental factor in being uncomfortable with the look of it.......but.....
my question is..... how do you guys hide that obvious buldge that the holster and gun create if you have your shirt tucked in???.
The holster came with the belt clips set on the 3rd hole (down from the top) and was quite comfortable there, but I noticed the buldge. So I tried moving the clips up to the 2nd hole (therefore raising the ride of the plastic and gun). That took away a little bit of the buldge, but not too much, and also made me print a good bit easier in a thin t-shirt at the rear sites and butt of the gun. So I'm debating going back down to the 3rd hole so I don't print as easily and with a t-shirt untucked....I shouldn't have much problem hiding the buldge. But again, the concern is when my shirt is tucked in, as my job requires me to do so, and the buldge created from the holster.
Ohh yeah, I tend to carry about 3:30-4:00 on my waist. I thought about moving it all the way around to my back, but if I do that (therefore limiting my ability to get to the gun), I may as well have bought a SOB holster.
Can any of you guys shed some light as to maybe a better location to carry and maybe a better way of adjusting this holster to get rid of that buldge?????????? I'd really like to get this holster riding right for me so I can feel more comfortable in carrying with it.....especially with shorts and t-shirt (shirt tucked in) or a thin t-shirt untucked.
