    Hi - I am asking this in complete ignorance, someone told me that out there someone makes a concealed holster that attaches to the waist but hangs down inside the pant leg??? Was this person for real because I'm not finding one. My husband needs to wear his shirt tucked in but does not always have a jacket on and he carries either a Taurus PT145 Millenium Pro or a Taurus PT140 Millenium Pro which doesn't always conceal well in his slacks pocket. Can anyone help me?? Thanks!

    Inside waist band

    momma2_3: Ma'am; Look for the "Inside Waist Band" which you have found

    Next is tough. Is the "hubby" big, is hubby "round", is hubby "skinny":)
    These will make a difference in comfort.:) All that you have listed are Inside the Waist Band
    So my shot in the dark?

    Loop means: for the trouser belt to slip through to hold holster.
    Hook means: for the holster to "hook" on the trouser and ?belt? either
    Tuck means: kinda like crammed in between 'meat' and trouser

    Pictures show ?belt hanger? facing us as we look at them.

    Ma'am; do not hesitate to ask. Many more will probably chime in to help.
    I picked one manufacture. Others exist.

    Hubby is 5'11'' and about 158lbs so probably classified as "skinny". :)
    He wore a 32" waist pant before he started carrying, now he wears a 34" for more comfort.

    As I looked at the pics of the Ross Leather ones my hubby already has an Uncle Mike's sidekick which looks similar to the top 3 holsters. And when he wears it with a tucked in shirt it is by no means completely concealed. So I didn't want to make a mistake by getting one just like the one he has already. I guess I had in my head from the person who told me about the holster originally that it hung down farther in the pants...is that incorrect?

    I have to leave soon but will check for replies as soon as I can as y'all have been most helpful! :)

    Trouser

    momma2_3: Ma'am: Correct. Tucking the shirt in is a problem is the problem.
    Skinny, larger, or over size we all have that problem.
    Deeper into the trouser; the firearm would be useless if needed in a hurry or maybe even not in a hurry.
    With out of waist shirts they will work. Tucked in NOPE.

    I believe in looking for options. Not negatives. What about a :)new:) firearm. :)pocket:) pistol.
    Then a drop into the pocket when tuck is in order.

    Once upon a time I too wore 32's then 34's oh well you get the idea.

    Now I summer carry Smith Wesson 638 in front or back pocket. It suites me and my lifestyle.

    Others use the Semi auto going to anything from .22-.380 as pocket firearms.

    Just so the "hubby" understands. I carry others at other times. Glocks, Ruger GP100 4". The 638 goes when I go year round.

    Ankle holster for the smaller i.e. SW638 for me suck. aggravating mess tied to my leg. Didn't purchase one to find out. I borrowed and was awful happy to return it.

    Follow up with your thoughts.

    Thanks so much for all your thoughts and input. Hubby would probably take a new gun over a new holster anyday! :) I think I may explore that option. Thanks again for all your help!

    Momma2_3 this is what I wear. It is very comfortable and very easy to use. If you watch the video on the website it will explain everything you need to know about how to use it. I have tried several different carry holsters but this one works the best for me.
    Hope this helps
     
  10. Therr are many tuckable holsters but my favorites would from Tucker gunleather
    WWW.tuckergunleather.com

    Check out the IWB holsters. Many of them can be worn with a shirt tucked in.
