    Anyone allergic to screws on Tuckable Holster backs?

    Lurking for a while now and this is my first post!
    Just wondered if anyone has experienced allergy issues with the screws on the back of Supertucks or M-Tacs touching their skin? I went with the Bluegrass Hybrid Ghost for my XD.40SC but I need another holster for my new GI Expert 1911. The Bluegrass Hybrid has a horsehide backing with no screws showing.
    I have had issues with nickel bothering me in the past so I was concerned

    BTW it isn't possible to order a kydex shell for the 1911 (5" barrel)and attach it to the XD.40SC's (3" barrel) Ghost holster I already have is it??? That would be ideal.

    The Bluegrass Hybrids seem great but I know Brock is snowed under right now so I thought I might look at some other options for expediency and to try another quality brand, too. Thanks!

    The MTAC doesn't have any screws exposed, they are covered with leather. I can't speak for the rest of them.

    Welcome...

    Simply wearing a summer T-shirt (a wife-beater) underneath the regular T-shirt will eliminate such problems.

    Try covering them with some moleskin. Or I'm thinking that if you degrease them and put a few heavy coats of spray Acrylic lacquer on them that would work to block the metal from directly contacting your skin.

    Thanks guys. Good to hear about the M-Tac (and thinking more about it I now remember that their backing didn't show the hardware)! I wasn't sure if the screws actually could touch the skin on the Supertuck or not - or if they ever presented a problem. Thanks for the responses.

    I wear a cbst. I dont wear a tshirt but iirc my boxers are between me and the screws. No problem here. The only part that touches skin is the part where the slide is and the pistols grip.

    Good point HighOctane - unless you go commando, I guess the ol' boxers would be covering the skin. Thanks!

    Tandy has brass Chicago screws if that would help.

    Good idea. Do you know if stainless steel Chicago screws are available, too? (If I'm ever in the market for them - sounds like the boxers will provide the needed shield from direct contact.)

    Take some clear nail polish and paint it a few times. I too prefer to pull up the side of my undershort that wear another layer of shirt.
