    Tucker Silent Thunder IWBs?

    Hi,

    Thinking of one of these for a Glock 30 I'm planning on buying. Anyone have any experience with these" The other one I'm considering is the MTAC, but I know the Tucker ST will be much easier on/off, although maybe not as stable?. I'm 5'9 with 33" paints if that matters.

    Thanks

    One thing to note.

    Although adjustable, the holster featured on the photo seems to indicate that the rig is maxed-out on forward cant, so consider that "angle/cant" before you decide to purchase.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Thanks, I'm looking for a 15-20% cant. I will have to ask.

    I've got three Silent Thunders for S&W 422 IWB, 1911 "Champion" and OTW G26. It's the slickest holster ever. The cant is fine with me.

    I recommend trying one.

    My EDC is a G30 in a Tucker Silent Thunder. It is great! It is very easy to put on and take off, and it is actually very stable. There is a good amount of cant adjustment. It is definitely a good carry rig. Good luck.

    It looks to me like it is my next choice. I currently have an MTac Hybrid for my XD45 and I love it. However, I also had a Bluegrass Hybrid that I loved even more but it was for my 1911 which has been sold.

    Bluegrass is no longer in business so the Tucker Silent Thunder looks a lot like the Bluegrass.
    I am consistently on record and will continue to be on record as opposing concealed carry.

    Great, just what I wanted to hear. I feel the Mtac, Crossbreed are great concepts, but maybe not for those of us with smaller waists and who like to remove our holster more then once a day. I currently use a flimsy Desantis IWB with no reinforcement, no cant and metal clip for my G26. That think rides so low that even with mag extensions I can't get a full grip on the gun. So, I've never been spoiled with a good holster.

    Edit: Can you easily get a full grip on your 30? I'll be adding the the Pierce +0 extensions. Also any pics? Thanks

    Getting a good grip

    All our holsters are made to allow for a full firing grip.

    A good belt is a must.

    Also, despite being a 'fan' of the Silent Thunder -- I'm going to purchase more -- I feel that my "Champion" is a better design than my OTW for the G26.

    The IWB for the J-frame leaves most desire of the three for perfection. It's just so tiny holster and the tightening screws could be better located. Also, with the IWB I'd like to see a bigger cant angle potential.

    My wife decided to carry it as appendix carry, which of all the options works best for her. The holster was designed to be carried on the hip.

    Thank you Rob for great holsters.

    Like Rob says, there is no problem getting a full grip. I do not have a pic yet, but I will try to get one posted. I will also add that it is a very comfortable holster. I put it on, with a good gunbelt, and almost forget that its there.

    I would say that if you order this holster, and I think you should, buy an extra belt clip or two. The nature of putting in on or taking it off can weaken the belt clip. It took me a year and a half to break the clip, but that is not a big deal to me. I go the new one in a couple of days, and ordered an extra.
