    Pulls the gun in tight to your side. Printing is much reduced, but not gone altogether. Only big enough for small and midsize guns. For example, a 4" Springfield XD .45 is too big. It's a compression shirt: really presses in on you: takes some getting used to. Adds another layer and the seams are a little scratchy so you might need to wear an undershirt. Thus not suitable for hot weather. To draw you must start high on the chest, so must either have a loose or stretchy shirt that's easy to drag the hem way up, or have a shirt with breakaway snaps down the front.
    In the heat of the moment, what matters is what your body knows -- not what your mind knows.

    I bought something similar, and frankly, it's not my cup of tea. Like mfcmb said, you have to figure out a way to get to the weapon.

    "OK, let's all just freeze in place for a moment. I need to unbutton my shirt. I take that back. All my shirts are these $65 custom deals that have fake buttons and velcro tabs allowing me easy access."

    Or I can just carry something between 4:00 and 4:30 that doesn't show..at least not too much.

    I have one of the 5.11 holster tees. The stitching is a bit itchy at first but mellows out a bit after a few washings and you get used to it. I have no problem concealing a commander sized 1911 in mine. I don't use it much as I don't suit up often but, if you need to conceal in a suit or just a shirt and tie it's a good option. Replacing a couple buttons on your dress shirts with snaps or velcro is simple and cheap to do. Tuckables always make me feel like I have a colostomy bag or something.

    i see, thanks for the tips.

    im a larger guy (6'3" 255lbs) with a bigger upper torso so i kinda felt like it would possibly push my gun out more making print more as i usually only wear tshirts. i figured reaching up my shirt wasnt too difficult at all.
