Review on Tucker GunLeather's "The Answer"

It all started with the purchase of my new Walther P99 .40.


As someone that is new to CHL I went on a search for a holster that I can wear all day at work, is "light and tight", and blends the comfort of leather and the stability of kydex.

Found a few brands, and after some research and product comparison It lead me to Rob Longenecker over at Tucker Leather.

http://rlcompanyusa.stores.yahoo.net/index.html

The 1st thing I saw was his leather work and knew I was onto something. And once I saw "The Answer" I bought it. The price is a little hard to swallow, but you have to remember. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. My $25 Fobus Paddle holster, while is a great product and I use it weekly at the range, Is worth $25. The high price gets your 1st class quality. Shorty after I got a email from Rob confirming everything and letting me know that it will work with my newer model P99.

A few weeks went buy and I get it in the mail.


Standard clips in rear and J clips in front.




After about 5 minutes, You dont even know it is there.


Draw angle can be adjusted to your "sweet spot"


Looks like a sheep to me....

After about a hour of adjusting the cant and location, I got my sweet spot and it was all over. Added a little LocTight to the screws and was done with it.

All and all "The Answer" is worth every penny, And Rob puts out an amazing product while still maintaining great customer service.

So if you are in the market for a good holster, send Rob a email.

Nah, I'm not gonna yell at you. Rob is one heck of a nice guy, and The Answer is a neat holster. Just do us all a favor and post some more. We all benefit from one another's experience. Good luck!

Thanks, Gary. I appreciate it.
Gary's one of the good guys out there in holsterland. He puts a great deal of attention to detail in everything he builds.

Welcome to the forum, Spud. That holster does look very comfortable to wear. By the way we don't yell on CC. If you by chance had done something wrong you would have been notified in a very calm manner. That's one of the many things I like about CC, it is very civilized and also very helpful.

Another happy Tucker customer

I also have an "Answer" for my Kimber Ultra Carry .45.

Mine is paired with a Liger 1.5 inch gunbelt.

I had to spend a half-hour or so experimenting with belt clip settings. Each of the Comp-Tach clips has three vertical holes. This allows quite a range of cant adjustment.

I initially started with both clips at their bottom holes. This puts the gun as low on the belt line as possible. I finally settled on the front clip at the bottom hole and the rear clip at the top hole. This gives me the best concealment and I can still get a good firing grip.

I've carried for 12+ hours at a time with no discomfort. I can draw reasonably well from sitting. The added forward cant I settled on helps with draw from the contour bucket seat of my Chevy Cavalier.

I'm seriously considering a Tucker "Cover-Up" for either appendix or crossdraw carry of my Colt Mustang Pocketlite. Tucker also makes a "Cover-Up" for the Smith J-frame.

Rob Longnecker is an incredibly professional guy to deal with. I can't say enough good things about his products or his service.

As for in the car, It has alot to do with where you wear your pants. I have found that if you "sag" about a inch lower than your waist while in the car, it feels more natural.
