First time CCWer looking for a holster
I am new to handguns as well as concealed carry. My permit came through this morning and I am looking for an ideal concealed holster. Tuckability is important to me and would like a holster that allows me to tuck in a shirt even with the holster on my hip.
As a long time lurker on this forum I notice many like the crossbreed supertuck. I went to their website and saw the qwikclip as well which also allows tucking in of one's shirt.
Does anyone have any experience with the qwikclip? Any other Tuckable holsters you guys would recommend?

For IWB tuckable, I use the MTAC. I have a Kimber 1911 Ultra (3.25"), GSR Sig 1911 4" (doesn't fit as well) and a P229 40S&W. Most of the time I use a carryloc by Bianchi. It's an OWB retention holster.

I carry a G23 (same size as your G19). I have both the CTAC and MTAC from Comp-Tac. Both are tuckable IWB holsters. I Love 'em both and utilize them exactly as you discribed in you critira for a holster.

Welcome to the forum! I carry a GLOCK 19 in a Crossbreed Supertuck all day every day. The holster is comfortable and I conceal just fine, however I do not tuck in my shirts, so I'm not sure how it conceals tucked for me.

Ilike the fit and finish of the MTAC much better than the Supertuck. Plus if you get a new gun down the road, just buy a new body. I carry a G23 in a HBE Com III. Love it but it is not tuckable.

While you were lurking in the shadows, you may know there is no ‘ideal’ holster. Even the most popular models collide with individual taste, comfort, body type, wardrobe and life style. As of 0700 hours, I have four different style holsters for my nimble j-frame snub. It’s not that I hate some and wear one, rather, it’s that holsters are like wardrobe for my gun e.g. attire, activity level, season, and so on. I would start out with a generic type that allows for return if you don’t like it.

Crossbreed Quikclip - don't one one, but I have a friend who does. He uses it for a KelTec 9mm. He likes it, but has said that his HKp2000 might be too much for it. For a G19 I'd go for the Supertuck. It is very fast to slip on and will easily support the weight, provided a decent belt is involved.

I was in the same boat. New to concealed carry, not handguns. I too needed something to carry my Glock 19. I will probably rarely (if ever) need to tuck my shirt though. Comp-Tac's MTAC and CTAC were a consideration. I ended up going with the CrossBreed Super Tuck Deluxe because the others were not offered in horeshide. I have only wore it for a couple of days now but it is as comfortable and concealed (untucked shirt as I mentioned) as you'll get with that gun! Good Luck and welcome to the forum.

I particularly like the Galco SkyOps holster for my tuckable IWB with my G23. Well, okay.....I love it! The High Noon Hidden Alley comes in a close second, and maybe more comfortable depending on where I wear it. I recommend either for your G19 tuckable.
