    New supertuck owner needs advice

    Tried calling crossbreed on this but no one answered the phone. Got my supertuck today for my S&W 38 snubbie. Question: how securely does the Supertuck normally hold the gun? My only experience with kydex is Fobus, where the gun clicks in and is secure. But my supertuck is much different - if I turn it upside down and jiggle, the gun just falls out. Is this normal? Thanks!

    Congrats on the purchase of a damn fine concealment holster.

    The retention is in the kydex, there is no mechanical device to hold the gun in. If you want more or less retention there is a way to heat the kydex and reform it. By the time you put the holster IWB and sinch your quality gun belt (hopefully) up retention should be fine. I don't do too many handstands while carrying and I'll be the only one drawing it when the SHTF.

    Got a QwikClip for a Taurus, had it re-kydexed for a Glock: both relied on the tension of the waistband/belt to secure the weapon. Tried the hair-dryer trick in the instructions, couldn't get the Kydex so soften so I use other holsters.

    Please put the holster on with the gun(unloaded) in it. Now draw your gun. See how it feels. I have 3 Crossbreeds, 2 for semiauto's and one for revolver. The one for the revolver seemed loose when off my body but great when on. The other 2 seemed great. The holsters for the semiautos pass the upside down test but the revolver did not. Putting on the holster changes its retention. Hope this helps.

    Great Holster by the way!

    you can put a hair dryer to it and tighten it up if needed. If it was built for that gun, its probably fine. Its easy to tweak with a little heat if needed. Its easy to over tweak it, so you have to be careful. good luck
    Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it ......

    Part of the issue may be the fact that its housing a revolver instead of a semi. I've made a holster similar to a crossbreed (where kydex only forms to one side of the gun) and i had quite a bit of rotation in the holster that just couldn't be helped because of the rounded nature of the revolver. If it doesn't retain the revolver well and tighten down when its being worn then the kydex definitely needs some modification though.

    +1. I have a ST for my Ruger LCR. It seems like a loose fit when I'm not wearing it, but retention is perfect with the holster on.

    Great product you bought....only when you have it on and secured you will see that the retention is good.
