    I haven't tried IWB, but I see pics of guys with such a holster and their shirt is tucked in.

    I can't figure out how you tuck in a shirt when the holster has the part that comes out and over the waistband, and attaches to the belt.

    Stupid question I know - flame away - I deserve it. :D

    It just doesn't compute for my little pea-brain. :)

    Thanks.

    Some holsters have what is called a "J-hook" that allows you to still tuck in a shirt...

    A lot of holsters give you the option when ordering for belt loops or j-hooks...

    As in tucked in so the gun is concealed by the shirt? And the belt tab(s) are still visible? :confused:
    It'd just about have to be a belly band type rig to be IWB and shirt tuckable.... or you've got it shoved in your shorts. :p

    Got photos of what you're referring to?

    OK, thanks. I googled that and found this. Makes sense now.

    Yes, I had been seeing holsters more like this. Didn't make sense.

    Never seen a 'J' hook that deep before... I guess, if you were so inclined, you could tuck your shirt in.

    The last time I tucked my shirt in was for a funeral 4 years ago, so shirt tuckin' is not such a common denominator for me. :D

    I wear an "answer" with my Kimber. http://www.tuckergunleatherblog.com/category/the-answer/ Yes, I can tuck, and sometimes do. I just pull some of the shirt out so the hooks aren't so obvious. Most of the time I just wear a t-shirt, then throw a short or long sleeve button up over it, untucked. It is much easier to get a good grip on my handgun quickly that way -- I just use my hand to pull up my shirt slightly then get my grip.

    One of mine is the Tucker Texas Heritage. Won it in a name our new holster contest that Tucker had, and I love it.:)

    Yeah, I suppose... but if it was a young lady with a shapely fanny, we'd think it was a very good thing. Might even consider the shorts too. :bluelaugh:

    I've been carrying my handgun in an IWB holster called the Minotaur sold by Comp-Tac.com. Runs about $80 which is rather spendy in my opinion but it is extremely comfortable. I can wear all day without getting sore. I've even fallen asleep on my couch while wearing it. It does have the 'j' hooks so even with a tucked in shirt the belt hooks are visible. I usually tuck in a white t-shirt and wear another one over top of that. I've only had this set up for a few months so I think the two shirt plan will be out the window for the summer:)

    Today I was wearing a long sleeved shirt that must be tucked in while carrying... all I do is leave a portion of my shirt blouse around the gun with the shirt tail tucked into my pants on either holster. I live outside of Medford if you want to meet sometime and I can show you what I do.

    I have one of those Galco IWB/j-hook holsters for my S&W MP .40 and I do not like it.
    I go with the Blade Tech Nano with belt loops and untucked shirt. Comfy.

    What is it you don't like about it? Is it a comfort issue, a concealability issue, or...??

    Thanks.
