Question about carry holsters
I bought a Blackhawk tuckable holster Size 6. It said for 2" barrel revolvers and Kahr, keltec, and Ruger 380s. You can wear it concealed with your shirt tucked in because you can tuck your shirt between the holster and the clip. I love this idea and it is real comfortable. My only problem, and I think it is a big one, is my Kahr380, Ruger380, and by two snubbies all feel like they are not secure enough in the holster.
My question is, does anyone else this kind of IWB holster? I know I did a lousy job of describing the holster, but am hoping someone here is familiar with it and can help me out.

It should be fine. When you put it on and get it all set with your belt tightened it will pull it up against your body. This should put enough pressure on it for you to feel that it is secure in the holster.

Buy a hybrid like an alien gear. Completely adjustable for fit cant and tension.

I'm not familiar with that particular holster, however I can say that the feeling of it not being secure is really common with generic holsters that are designed to fit such a wide range of handguns. a 380 and a 2" revolver are entirely different shapes.
I would suggest going for a holster made specifically for the gun, it will be a lot more secure.

I have several tuckable holsters. The problem your having is because the holster is suppose to fit multiple guns. Buy a quality holster, designed for your gun. Contrary to what they try and say, One Size doesn't fit all.

Feels insecure, or actually is insecure?

And if you're doing such activities where you're concerned about unintentional release or removal of the gun, a thumb break feature might be worth considering for your next holster purchase.

1. this is why I don't like using one size fits all generic holsters. If you can, get a holster made for your specific model of gun.

Size 6 Blackhawk is all the description we needed. I recommend against any holster which depends on belt tension to provide pistol retention.
The hardest thing to explain is the glaringly evident which everybody had decided not to see.
