Is there really a holster I can conceal with my shirt trucked?

I've seen them advertised and all that but I live in the real world.

I'm broke down and I am not in the shape I was when I was 25.

I am a big framed guy and a little overweight.

I am also of the generation that grew up and you tucked your shirt in regardless.

In the summer, I wear t shirts untucked and carry my 1911 deep in a pair of jeans or shorts.

If I am going out where shorts and an untucked shirt are not appropriate and I carry, I will put a 25 or 380 in my back pocket.

Now that I am carrying the 9mm shield I would really like to find a holster that can keep me concealed with a tucked shirt.

Even though I am old I know how to use search engines but I don't believe some of the hype when I see the holster. I also know a lot of guys and none of them are able to conceal and tuck.

Now I am fully aware if you have a 30 inch waist and a sixpack It's a possibility.

I will spend the money. It's the results I want.

I have a closet full of holsters I have tried for many of my handguns.

i even have a london fog Raincoat I could conceal an MP5.

I did some searching but didn't find anything that would fit me.

I am 5'11" Very Broad shoulders and barrel chest with a tummy that is a little bigger than I would like to have.

I have no issues with my Crossbreed Supertuck. Just make sure the shirt you are wearing is loose enough.

Well, OKSlim you could call me OKChunky, about 5'10" or I might have shrunk a bit more down to 5'8" or 9", and about 200 to 205. Now it needs to be a big enough shirt to start with, if its already tight around the middle this won't help, but if its an adequate size its OK. You'll need a pair of pants that are normally a little loose and a belt a bit larger and heavier to support a pistol.

The Alien Gear inside the waist holsters will work, I have a DeSantis IWB of similar design that I can conceal pretty well even when tucked, now when you reach a certain way or put both your hands up the waistband tightens up and it will print if you are looking, but if it isn't in the open in the first place most people won't be looking. This is the one I have.

That link is a little flaky right now, here's some more info:
  • Product #: 247644
  • DeSantis Holster #: 105KAX7Z0
  • UPC #: 792695316930

I bought an air marshall III from these folks. Works great. I carry a CZ P07 with a RMR on it, just about everywhere.

You could carry off body. That works no matter the weather or clothing. I do it 95% of the time minimum.

I'm more towards the smaller frame body, with the middle aged paunch. I EDC my M&P9c in a CrossBreed Appendix Carry Holster. It sit just under my midsection (works with a moderate paunch, but probably wont work if it's dunlapped over the belt).

I got the Horsehide natural option, for the hot, humid Florida weather. It took a few days of wearing it off and on to get it to conform to my body. Once it conforms and breaks in, I don't even notice it.

My daily work clothes are now bluejeans, belt and button down shirt tucked in. I like my shirts (and jeans) a bit on the loose side (not floppy though), for freedom of movement. I'm long past the tight jeans phase of life! I still wear it with my street clothe which is usually shorts (with a belt) and a t-shirt untucked.

After over a year of EDC, including daily driving a truck without AC in Florida:


The curl at the bottom, below the trigger cover is where it curled at the crease to my leg while sitting.

I need to tuck in my shirt at times and use the Safariland / Bianchi Model 135. I have one for my Shield 40 and one for my 40c. Very comfortable holster.

You can tuck these in as well;

Iwb Holsters | Iwb Kydex Holster | Iwb Concealed Carry Holsters - White Hat Holsters

Even says it in the holster name. MaxTuck, etc. Hope this helps!

Shirt tucked, one more vote for an Air Marshall III and they have ones for smaller frame guns also. Very comfortable and just as accessible if you train with it (like you should with any holster)

Comp-Tac Minotaur did a fine job with my XD45 Service back when I carried IWB. I stopped that and now carry OWB with an outer shirt for cover.
