Thinking of getting a Tucker Silent Thunder STX based on the information on Tucker's web page. Would like to get some feedback from actual users before I make a final decision. Input would be appreciated.

Okay, you might have to spend the extra money, however, Pure Kustom is the better product. I get crap all the time from people asking me what I get from Rocky for plugging his business all the time, and my answer is NOTHING. I dont want anything. I just love his products and believe everyone should have one.

This is my review from when I first received my holster. If you end up getting a Tucker, and it dont compare to this, then you will know that you have an inferior product.

This might sound like I am holding a grudge against Tucker, not really a grudge, I just dont like them. You can do better.

What is it about Tucker holsters that you don't like? Thanks

I carry and XD .45 in one. I like it overall. I wish it spread the weight a bit more, but that is going to be an issue with any single attachment point holster. It also rides too low for my tastes. I have a hard time getting a proper firing grip quickly.

It holds the gun securely, although I've never done inverted calisthenics with it on or anything so... :)

Quality was ok, but there was a ragged edge on top where the leather had not been cut cleanly. I know concealment holsters don't need to be pretty, but for the price I paid I expected a little better QC.

I also got a bullhide belt from Tucker. Great overall, but the blind screws holding the buckle end of the belt together were not tightened well. First time I used a public restroom they fell apart, and I was scrambling behind the toilet for the pieces. I was not pleased.

Overall, it's serviceable but I wasn't happy with the quality of the... $150ish iirc worth of gear. I would not try to stop someone from ordering Tucker gear, it's not bad stuff. But I will not be buying from them again myself.

My EDC is a Glock 30 in a Tucker Silent Thunder IWB. I think it is an incredibly comfortable holster, and for the single point attachment I have never had a single problem with the holster rotating. I set the cant that suited my needs, and I have never had any problem with my pistol being in any position other than what the holster cant is set for. As for quality, I have a couple of Tucker holsters and I think the quality is as good as can be expected for anything handmade. I was just given a new Glock 21sf for Christmas, and I plan on calling Tucker to see if I can get the Silent Thunder for that gun.

Good luck with your holster selection.

By the way Balog, I also have a Beltman belt. If you don't tighten the screws with a bit of locktite on them then you will continue to lose your buckle no matter who made the belt. Good luck with it.

Be safe.

I think the OP is speaking of the STX which is an OWB belt holster. Thanks for your brief review though of the IWB.

My problem with Tucker Gunleather is when I ordered one for a gun that I own, it came and it was the wrong one. He wouldnt take it back. I work at a range and so I see many people come in from day to day with all sorts of things on their belts. (The guns have to be unloaded and in a case before entering) The people who have Tucker have not said anything good about them. This is just my opinion and I mean no harm. I dont like them, my friends dont like them, so I dont recommend them.

Well I'm just the opposite. I have a Tucker "Secret" and have to say it is a really nice holster. Use mine allot carry my 1911 compact and sometimes I'll even use it to carry my PF-9. In my opinion it would only be better if it had tuckable clips.

This is very fishy, since Tucker has a lifetime guarantee, if you purchased the holster directly from them. The only thing it doesn't cover are kydex belt clips. If you don't like it, they take it back. If you bought it used, damaged it, or modified it, then that's a different matter, and it's reasonable that they wouldn't accept a return.

I have a number of Tucker Holsters, both IWB and OWB, two for over 5 years. I personally know other people who have them, some LEOs. The quality of Tucker holsters is at the absolute top of the industry, and their customer service is outstanding.

I agree on the fishy part. Rob offered to take back a holster just because it wasn't working for me.

I too own several Tucker holsters, both IWB and OWB-they are among the highest quality IMO, and I own/have owned quite a few.

The last order I placed with him he sent me an email asking how a previous holster I bought from him was working out-one I bought several years before. Great service, and every bit a gentleman in my dealings with him.

Fastball, I have been wearing it for a week now..... and have decided that it is my favorite holster.:danceban: There was almost no break in time needed.

I have a hard time believing that Rob wouldn't take a return order unless the holster had been modified somehow.:confused: He keeps the communication flowing as freely as the guys at Comp Tac do! My vote is go for the Silent Thunder it has adjustable retention(even a thumb break if you want, Rob will customize it to meet your specs, it is delivered FAST, and best of all it is MADE IN TEXAS!!:yup::hand10:

Wouldn't take it back.

That sounds fishy to me. I can't recall EVER refusing to take a holster back.

I realize that people are picky and we do get a few back for various reasons, but we fix 'em or refund 'em.

I've even called guys who were selling a Tucker holster online to ask how come, and taken some of those holsters back for a refund, so unless you have some specifics I seriously doubt it happened.

We have people who are placing their 10th or 12th order with us. That wouldn't happen if they weren't more than pleased.

Nothing's perfect , but I wouldn't refuse to take a return for refund.

Call me personally and remind me of the circumstances if that really happened to you.

Yes, it really happened. I ordered a holster for a Walther P99 and got one for God only knows what. I called and said it was the wrong one and that I didnt even know what this holster is for. I was told that was the holster I ordered and NO REFUNDS! Now, this was a few years ago and maybe service has gotten better. I dont know if Rob was having a bad day or what. But I didnt loose my money. I found out what holster it was and sold it at my shop for what I paid.

I might sound "fishy" to some of you and I dont mean to make any problems or waves. If you all for some reason or another think I am a lier than PM me and we can discuss it. I stand by what really happened and I am telling the truth. I have not heard one single person tell me that Tucker is a good product, and that is my opinion that I am entitled to.

Now, I will eat crow and say that I messed up by posting my first post and regret it. I was having a bad day and took out some of my frustrations on that post and for that I apologize. But since I opened my big mouth (so to speak) I had to answer a few questions and then I got attacked. I know better than to post something like that, it was a slip up. If you want a Tucker, then get a Tucker, I am sure you will be happy with it, I wasnt.

I am waiting for a Texas Heritage (PM9 w/CT Laser) that Rob said would be delivered before the end of Feb. I'll review it after I get it, but the reason I ordered it -my first Tucker - is that Tucker seems to have an excellent reputation based on the forum opinions I have seen.

If what you describe actually happened, you could have contacted Rob to work things out. Sounds more like you created the problem, maybe even purchased it from a third party for resale, rather than Tucker, and now have an attitude about it.

Tucker's holsters are top knotch, their service is exemplary, their lifetime guarantee is second to none.

Avenger, I didn't mean to come across as beliigerant I was just supprised by your post. Like you said we are all entitled to our opinions, just the same as my wifes love of techno music and black licorice is proof of mental defect in my opinion.:rolleyes:
