Tuckable Holsters. Do you tuck your shirt in?

I never do however, I was outside with all the kids awhile ago, and the wind kicked up pretty good, and I was glad I had my MTAC on. Did the ol' mirror check, and I'm all good. How about you?

MTAC also and tuck about half of the time. I do like the ability to choose tuck/untuck.

Yep. I wear longer shirts, about 6" or more past the beltline, and rarely have to deal with it. But today, the whole 'hood could have seen my gat. No good. I should be tucking in more often, I imagine.

I wear a shirt and tie to work in the pharmacy so tucked is a must. I know it takes a little more to draw but practice makes perfect on this.

Absolutely. I need to add this to my training regimen.

Seconds, and fractions thereof, demand it.

I usually carry a G19 in an MTAC without tucking my shirt.

I used to carry a G26 in a CTAC and while I generally did not tuck there was a ~2 year period where I carried at work, tucked, using that setup.

If I were really, really concerned with 'being made' I would either pocket or smartcarry or, if going IWB, would tuck. I may even get velcro on the inside of my belt and pick up some of those basically invisible v-clips

Depends on the situation, but I'm yet to have an issue concealing either way.

Always good to have options. IMO however, a tucked in shirt looks much more put together than an untucked shirt, which look slovenly unless it's a Hawaiian shirt at a Jimmy Buffett show.

I hardly ever tuck my shirt in, in the cases that I do, I have an ankle holster on order.

To the judgemental: I don't think that I look like a slob at all and I rarely tuck my shirt in. I wear very good quality Cuban and Mexican short and long sleeve Guayaberas most of the time. I am comfortable and they cover very well.

Typically I stay untucked. Occasionally at church I'll tuck.

Holster kings holster can tuck depending on the weapon.

Each to their own, I reckon.
I wear square-hemmed shirts designed to be worn untucked. They are available in quite a variety of materials, colors and styles.
I've noticed many guys in my age bracket here in Texas sporting these shirts, with either boots and jeans or khakis and shoes, etc.,.
This is coming from a former Jarhead who prefers to go about squared-away.
Ref. the OP, there are times when I'll go tucked. Often enough that its a feature I require in my IWB holsters.

Unless I'm sleeping in it, I always tuck my shirt.
I think an untucked shirt looks unkempt.

However I find that the bulge from my Comp-Tac is often still a bit too obvious and in that situation I will pocket carry (R9 or PM9) and/or ankle carry (PM45).
