    Question Tuckable or not?

    I've been trying to decide whether to get a tuckable holster or not.
    I live in Memphis so the wheather varies from pretty cold (where a cover garment can be used) to very hot and humid (where the thought of even wearing a Tshirt under my office button-up makes me sweat.

    So my question is: Do most folks get a tuckable holster and use it untucked in the off-chance they might have to tuck, or do you use a tuckable holster only when you need it?

    Thanks,

    Lep

    I have settled on the CrossBreed SuperTuck, even when I weak my shirts un-tucked (most of the time).

    I use a Tuckable and Tuck

    Most of the time when I have to stay concealed I use a SmartCarry instead of a tuckable

    You don't have to tuck because it's "tuckable".
    Right now I have an M-TAC (great holster), not tucked; I have a leather jacket to cover it.
    However I like to have the option.

    Same here. I just recently got it, but so far I'm liking it.

    Crossbreed Supertuck, purchased because, among other things, I have the option to tuck, but don't have to. The few times I've had to wear it tucked, it worked beautifully.

    I always wear a "tuckable" IWB holster. Either my Dakota Defender or an MTAC. Sometimes I tuck and sometimes I dont but I want the option.

    Other than a rig I use for my .44 magnum when hunting all my carry holsters are tuckable type. I use the tuckable feature when it is required. Why not have the option.

    if you only have 1 holster, make it tuckable (like supertuck or MTAC), but if you have a number of holsters, you can more closely tailor them to your daily needs.

    I use primarily a tuckable holster, however I rarely wear a shirt tucked. I like having the option available when I need it.

    I have a supertuck, but find that outside the waist band is still more comfortable most of the time, for me.
    I carry a gun for the same reason I own a smoke detector...I never, ever, plan on needing them...but if I do need them, and have them in a box...I won't be able to get to them for use fast enough.

    Not sure how to answer your poll. I always use a tuckable holster. I tuck when I'm at work and have to dress up. Evenings and weekends I just pull my shirt or coat over it.

    Have a tuckable holster gives me the option of being able to tuck my shirt when appropriate.
