    The most concealed tuckable I have found...

    ... Is no holster at all. Believe it or not. I thought I'd post this because I see so many threads on how certain "tuckable" holsters don't work so well with bigger guns. I was in a spot today, I just got a new pistol strictly for carry and my brother forgot to overnight me my VMII on Friday. I was heading out and I always wear a shirt and tie at least ("Sunday best") so I was debating whether I should go with an OWB and jacket or "Mexican" with a jacket when I got the idea to try Mexican with the shirt tucked over it. It's kind of tricky to tuck your shirt over your pistol without your belt tightened. I thought it was going to print like mad since I carry only full size, double-stack guns and have never tried this with a shirt this fitted. I keep reading how tuckable holsters don't work so well with doublestacks and larger guns. The TMIWB (tucked Mexican IWB) worked surprisingly well, I spent the whole day driving around, getting into and out of the car and my pops couldn't tell I had it at all.

    I was really taken aback how well this method of carry worked, but YMMV depending how tight your shirts are and your build. I'm on the tubby side with some Dunlap (successfully working on that) and I guess blousing the shirt a little helps. I wear Joe Banks dress shirts in "tall", and even the non-tall shirts have a lot of length in the tails, more than Ralph Lauren "Yarmouth" dress shirts. Here are some shots of this method of carry.








    So if your tuckable holster isn't working out so well as a tuckable, give this method a try. I know a lot of people don't like this method as the gun is not "secured", but I had no shifting of the pistol even with all the sitting, standing, and kneeling.

    If it works for you, great. But it just doesn't seem safe to me.

    I thought along the same lines until today. Once I was forced into the situation, I found it isn't that bad. Granted I won't be carrying this way very often, it is an option if you've got a situation requiring a tuckable. It works a whole heck of a lot better than blousing out a shirt to cover an untucked IWB. Like I wrote before, YMMV, I was just throwing this out there in case no one had thought of it.

    Trigger isn't covered and seems if you have to draw in a hurry and pull your shirt out, the gun may come out with it.. Looks scarey to me.

    Get a CTAC, then your holster WILL work as a tuckable.

    Ok, maybe I wasn't clear, I don't have any holsters with me. My brother had my VMII, which I would have worn IWB without a tuck. I was just in a tight spot and found this was very concealable. The trigger was very well covered by my waistband and I had the shirt folded up above the trigger guard so it wouldn't get stuck and pull the trigger.

    Thanks for the response. The logic works for me but might not work for the judge. I had a boss tell me one time, it's not a problem until it's a problem.

    When in a bind, "Mexican Carry" is better than "No Carry". I tried it once, but was too affraid my gun was going to slide down my pants leg to ever do it again. Then again I always carry a compact so maybe a full size stays put better with this.

    Clip Draw-safe&secure.

    I have carried my Glock 27 this way for a year.
    The big difference in the way I do it is the addition
    of The CLIP DRAW unit attached to the Glock slide.
    This goes over a 11/4 belt and holds it secure.
    As for the trigger being exposed--I use a trigger BLOCK also sold by clip draw. The Trigger Block slides behind the trigger and prevents it from being pulled. The block is easily pushed out with the normal drawing of the gun.FOR ME it is safe, secure and the fastest, most concealed method I have found.

    Agreed. My big belly would interfere w/that style-but its better than no gun!

    I LOVE my Crossbreed holster. It stays where you put it and holds my G19 very well.

    This is a very bad idea. Many defensive engagements can be very physical. I would defy anyone to be able to draw without a holster (particularily if it is covered with a tucked in shirt) while someone is beating the living crap out of them. Same goes for the trigger block idea. Fine motor skills go out the window when the adrenalin hits.

    I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings here, but this is a great way to blow chunks off of your own body, or lose control of the firearm and have it go skidding across the floor/ground & potentially arm your opponent or hostile bystanders.

    Guns are't toys and holsters exist for a reason. I would also suggest some professional level training...
