    Big Box o' Tuckers

    These photos don't really do them justice, but here are some quick shots of my Tucker line-up. HF1s for the Desert Warrior and Ultra CDP II, w/ matching gunbelt and double mag pouch, all in black cherry w/ crosscut full stamp pattern. Answer & IWB single mag pouch for the Ultra CDP II. Fabulous workmanship and functionality on all.

    Almost too pretty to wear

    Those Tucker holsters with the Texas ornamental concho are almost too pretty to wear. They should be on display somewhere.

    Damn nice holsters. I have always liked "The Answer" but there is one thing holding me back. I have had a similar design where the muzzle was not fully coverred. It wore holes straight through two pairs of pants where the muzzle rubbed. I would want the full length to be coverred.

    2.5 weeks on the Answer and IWB pouch. 4 weeks on all the rest, except for the HF1 for the Ultra. I picked up that one in stock at Shooters Station in Conroe, Texas. It was a perfect match for the gear I had on order, so I couldn't pass it by!

    Pretty astounding delivery times for top-knotch custom leather.

    Thanks very much! I wanted to go with smooth grips on the Ultra CDP, for carrying comfort, but didn't really want to go with plain grips either. These are made from shed elk antler, from a fellow in Oregon. They're very comfortable for carrying, and for shooting.

    At first, I couldn't quite get the hang of the Answer, but after trying different positions and adjusting the cant, I've gotten it dialed in to where it's now quite comfortable, and accessible. Switching to smooth grips on the pistol has also made a huge difference.

    I've found that about a 4 o'clock position works best for me, whether standing, sitting or driving. I've moved the rear clip to the center hole, which creates a more butt-forward cant. This raised it just enough to get a really good combat grip, without sacrificing concealability.

    The thing is so stable, there's not much adjustment of position once it's belted in, so it's important to find that sweet spot and make sure you keep coming back to it. Took a little practice to get my re-holstering technique down pat, but it's really smooth now. And once I lose a little weight, IWB will be even more comfortable for me.
    Cheers,
    Rod

    Conceal the HF1?

    Those are great looking holsters...I have been very impressed with pics of Tucker holsters. I am thinking about getting an HF1...is it really possible to conceal? It looks pretty thick, does it hold the gu pretty close to the body?
    I think the OWB style would be more comfertable then the IWB, and I just think the HF1 holsters are one of the best looking I have seen. I just worry I won't be able to conceal without a jacket on.
    Thanks.
