    Hmmm.

    It took me a few minutes to even figure out what you were talking about ... But then I realized that the way that I have always drawn (the way that seemed natutal) does indeed swing the barrel wide, like you mentioned would have to happen. If I were to keep the gun as close as possible to my body, it would indeed sweep my torso. That's probably why that way seemed so foreign I didn't even consider it a possibility.

    Something to think about... I'm definately glad I found this web site...

    Either way... I've never had anybody question me further when I asked for a Left Handed IWB tuckable holster. I guess they just assume I'm left handed.

    My K and D Dakota defender works great...I do fluff the shirt out around the waist to keep from printing when not wearing any jacket. Now that I heard about the spatula - that solves my only frustration on getting the material down in between the waistband and holster/clips.

    I personally am usually in an environment where A) I will most probably never ever need my gun; and B) absolutely need to keep my weapon totally unseen. So I use a tuckable fully knowing that access will be restricted if I need it. - It's better than being unarmed... But I do need to account for that extra time.
    And if you need quicker access you can just untuck your shirt.

But I'm still trying to find options.

    All you have to do is order a left hand and they will make it for you if you really want to do this.
    With that said, we do not agree with a right handed person getting a left handed holster. If you go to our FAQ page I think it is #35 we had to address this. The problem is under stress you will twist your wrist and sweep that muzzle across your body trying to get on target quick. This is the reason why holster makers do not like it. I know some people can learn and practice not to cross your body with your gun and take the proper detour but under life or death situtation we at High Noon do not agree trying to carry in this manor. Why should you have to take a detour around your body to get on target? You know, never point the gun at anything you are not willing to destroy.
