    I have, actually. Went to a slightly classier than normal Christmas party with the wife and tested these out for the first time there. Was wearing black slacks and a red tucked dress shirt with my M&P .40c at about 5:00. Spent about an hour and a half there standing and sitting, talking with the host for a while about guns. Turned out he was quite into them and did reloading and such. One of the other guests I know also likes them. We spent a good while talking about guns, messing with a few of his. I did my best not to let on until my acquaintance asked about concealed carry licenses and I answered a question. The host asked if I carried and I affirmed. He asked what I carry and I told him. Asked me if I was carrying right then and I said "maybe." Gives me a coy smile and says "bull****." So I leaned in a way that showed the outline and we talked about the holster etc.

    So yeah, it works.

    I use Velcro clips on a holster of another manufacturer and they work great. I do not see any reason Crossbreed's V-clips would not be excellent. To ME, clips that go over or wrap around the belt are too conspicuous.

    Nobody notices them especially if your belt is the same color as the clips.

    Amen Cowboycolby. Gun folks don't care and non gun folks don't even think about it.
    In a gun fight, you can not miss fast enough, to catch up.

    Disagree. Three classmates, none of whom own our participate in shooting, spotted the Crosstuck belt clips in ONE day.

    they sort of work... The problem is that the surface of the V clips may not conform to the surface of the belt. If you are a large person and the distance between your V clips is only a small portion of your waist circumferance htey may work better for you. I (34" waist ) find that the V slips stick out a bit and don't lie flat against the inside of the belt which has a sewn in Velco loop patch. Walking, bending, reaching, etc. tends to make the connection loosen up. I prefer the J clips or the full loop clips. The V clips sounded like a good idea but in practice, less than perfect. Can you borrow a rig and try it first??

    I've had velcro clips from both Crossbreed and Comptac that I used with a velcro-lined Crossbreed belt. After about nine months of daily use the velcro pad on the Crossbreed clip had turned to the point that the velcro was coming off of the clip. The velcro on the Crossbreed clip is just stuck on with adhesive.

    With the Comptac the Velcro is stapled and glued into a concave indentation in the clip so it doesn't move but the downside is the clip itself is quite thick 3/16"-1/4" and tended to make the belt bulge at the clip.

    With both types I was experiencing the back clip make that trademark velcro sound and come off the belt when I would sit. It didn't happen everytime and took a while to start happening regularly but eventually I'd say it happened almost daily. Then you have to reach around behind you and hopefully get the clip back between the pants and the belt.

    I'm about a 36" waist, carried around 4 o'clock and had a probably 25 degree cant on the holster. I also sit a lot at work. Any of those may factor into why it didn't work for ME. I finally got sick of the velcro coming off the inside of the belt and now if I need a discreet tuckable holster I just use a Galco Concealable OWB holster with a nylon 5.11 belt. I put that on before my pants and then put pants on over it. It seems to work pretty well FOR ME. I think I have pics in one of the last pages of the stickied how you carry concealed thread. For casual use with an untucked shirt I just use the Comptac with the standard clips.

    I think it can work pretty well but I just couldn't get it to work perfectly and found a different solution that worked better FOR ME.

    I've been using the V-clips with a Crossbreed belt for almost a year now. I like the fact that nothing shows to tip off anyone. The adhesion of the velcro to the V-clip is an issue. To prevent pulling the velcro off of the clip I wedge my thumb between the clip and belt when removing the holster, problem solved. Aside from that, I've had no problem with the velcro peeling off in use. Most people aren't going to notice the standard clips but I wanted total concealment and have been very satisfied with the v-clips.

    Standard clips let the rig shift on the belt. The Velcro keeps it in place. I use Comp Tac Velcro clips on the MTAC, CTAC, and CBST. I suggest starting with the standard clips until things settle in, then have a shoe repair sew a 12" X 1" strip of the loop material inside several belts. So far, there is nothing more discrete or secure.

    I have the Velcro clips and crossbreed velcro belt it's been flawless no one has ever asked if I was carrying and my wife has even asked me If I was carrying because she couldn't see any printing with a tucked in shirt, as far a how long they will last I can't tell you that because I only wear a tucked in shirt when I have to... since I've had this set up maybe 6 or 8 time in the last 4 months... and since my wife bought me a undertech shirt for valentines day I may use that next tiem I need to tuck...
