I'm considering both the Supertuck and the Qwikclip for a Ruger LCR. My son just picked it up yesterday and I'll set him up w/the holster. He likes the Comp-Tac Shirt Tucker that I use for my 638 and the Qwikclip is very close in design. And I think he prefers the easy-on/off design of this holster (one belt clip versus two / less overall mass of the holster / etc).
My question: In looking closely at the Qwikclip, I see that the belt clip is very close to the body of the holster. The Shirt Tucker model has a space of perhaps 3" from the closest side of the belt clip to the widest part of the holster (that being the outer edge of the cylinder). The Qwikclip has a distance of about 1 1/2" as best I can tell. For those of you using this holster w/a revolver, does this allow a smooth enough "fit" IWB or does it pronounce the bump in your beltline?
Hopefully that question made sense. Thanks for input.
What if the Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about?
I use a Quick-Clip holster from Crossbreed and like it.
I carry a Springfield XDM-40 all the time and it works great at carrying this heavy/full-size firearm.
Why did I buy it:
1) I like the 1-clip attachment versus 2 clips (less showing on your belt). Better have a black belt though.
2) The belt (when snugged tight) will hold the holster and gun in place with no worries.
3) I do tend to wear my shirts untucked, but for the few times I have it has worked well. It does take a little bit of practice to balance the holster (without the gun in) to get in place, insert gun and then tuck shirt in.
The only time it gets "off balanced" is when you undue your pants to sit on the toilet... the hoslter will twist or the gun fall out (I take it out and pace my gun inside my underwear so I never leave it behind on the shelf or toilet paper holder.
The number 1 place for a Federal LEO to misplace their guns... in bathrooms (a firend with ATF told me that).
Buy the Quick-Clip and you have 30 days to try it out or send it back.
I have had mine since March and love it... simple and discrete.
