I just recently got my ccw and decided to buy a crossbreed super tuck deluxe holster and can anyone give me some advice on it and how they like the feel of it?

Well I have had mine over 2yrs and it is in place from the time I roll out of bed and does not come off untill I pull the covers up to go to sleep. I have made 2 long trips by car in less than a yr for a total of 5700miles and never had a problem but thats how it fit me, I'm 5 11 174lbs and thats about all I can tell you. Good luck
They said I have two weeks to try it and If I don't like it I can return it and either get a different one or get my money back. The one thing I'm not too happy about is they said it would be between 4-6 weeks before I get it
I like mine. Conceals well and is comfortable for me and my body type. I can see where some may not like it though.
It is a long wait. I had one. What I did not like about was with the large leather touching that much of your skin, to me it felt prone to movement. Not that it ever came off of my belt, but having used a Milt Sparks VMII, I much prefer the Sparks. I have not tried any other hybrid holsters. Some people love them. I am a big guy with a spare tire so my size may have had something to do with it.

I use a Crossbreed holster every day. I find it comfortable and conceals well. I did my own combat cut on the leather so just enough leather was taken off for my hand to get a full grip on the gun.
One problem I have been having is the metal clips tear and scratch the heck out of everything. All of my jeans have holes where the clips sit, I've scratched the door of my car getting in a few times, scratched a relative's and a friend's wood chairs, and probably a few other things.
I'm going to be replacing the metal clips with these soon:

Also, depending on what I plan on doing that day, I will adjust it so it either sits right on my hip or back a little. If its back too far, bending over allows you to see the grip of the gun through my shirt a little bit. Forward too far makes my hip looks like its bulged out a little, but my shirt doesn't ride up over the grip nearly as much when I bend over.

I use a crossbreed snapslide, which is good. It's so simply designed really i have no beefs with it. It's small, OWB and holds my G26 or G19 well.

I use the super tuck daily. I've even fallen asleep watching tv a couple times wearing it. I've found it comfortable. I got mine from their seconds site so I had it in just over a week! :)
Tried the Supertuck. Didn't like it. IWB just isn't for me.
Sent it back and got their Snapslide and love it. It's OWB, but keeps the gun in close and conceals my Glock 19 and 23 under an untucked shirt very well.
One of my best friends has used one for quite some time now, and he loves it. He has tried several others and this is the first one that will truly allow him to conceal his gun while tucking in a shirt.
I have full intention of ordering one sometime later this month.
I have two CBST. They have both worked well for me. I am carrying some extra girth around my waist I shouldn't have but carrying IWB is still very comfortable for me. You just need to move the holster around from 3 to 5 o'clock and find the "time of day" that is most comfortable to you. I should add I always wear undershirts so the holster is never directly against my skin. Works well for me.
