    Serious Question about Tuckable Holsters

    With my SuperTuck, I have no problems carrying even a G23 with my shirt tucked in and it not printing. It's even easier with the subcompact G33.

    There's no printing on the shirt, but what about the pants around the belt area? I can notice that it bulges a on one side and not the other. Do you think I notice because I'm looking? Do you think any one else does?

    I can hide it a little when I balloon out the shirt, since it hides the contour of the belt.

    Nobody else is going to notice. Really.
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    judgement to keep himself out of situations that would require a display of his
    superior skills."

    To most people it will look like any number of things, but if someone asks about it just say its a tumor and its very tender so don't touch it; that'll shut 'em up.

    Anyone who notices a slight bulge in your belt already knows that you have a gun...few, if any, will notice.

    You will notice your own little flaws before anyone else even looks.
    I doubt anybody else will notice. Being overly worried about it may only bring attention to your well-hidden EDC. Don't sweat it.

    I carry my G23 in a CTAC with a tucked-in, bloused shirt often enough. Nobody's caught on yet. I've suprised my wife on more than one occasion.....and if ANYONE's gonna notice what I'm wearing/how I'm dressed (and any possible 'flaws') when going 'public'....it's her.

    Carry on!

    You could always use a spare magazine carrier (1 or 2 magazines) for IWB carry on the opposite side to "even out" the printing and make it look normal.

    If anybody is looking at your butt that closely, they are probably thinking about your other "ahhemm" weapon

    Think about it have you ever noticed a bulge or other suspicious lumps on a person's waist. There are lots of people carrying legally and illegally that we interact with everyday and never know it.

    It's amazing how much people don't pay attention. I was carrying, around our house, with my inlaws there (at the time they didn't know I carried) and I even allowed my shirt to rise up sometimes, so I'm pretty sure the gun would have been exposed and no one noticed a thing.

    IMO...you're being too self conscious about it. When it's a part of you, everything will be cool. Then you won't think twice about it. Trust me.

    Generally speaking, people aren’t expecting others’ to be carrying a gun. It’s simply endemic to our culture. The percentage of those scoping each other out for the telltale signs is relatively small. Be it LEO’s or fellow conceal carry folks, we still represent a small segment of our society. Of course exceptions do exist in locales whereby gun laws are more relaxed, but then again, those demographics are accustomed to a higher level of freedom.
