    Default TucTite holster

    I ran across this design and am intrigued. It looks like it could be a more convenient and comfortable holster. Can't download pictures with my phone but here's the web site;
    https://tuctite.co

    The reason this caught my attention is because carrying a spare mag is uncomfortable with a separate mag carrier.
    I use a Smartcarry on occasion and it's comfortable. Been trying to figure out how to make something in Kydex that would work above the belt line like an Archangel. This may be it.

    These kinds of holsters have become popular among the Instagram shooting crowd, but it's not without good reason. I think T-rex Arms began making these popular.

    I like the tab on the side of the holster that keeps the gun from flaring away from your belly, that's a huge improvement. I'm not wild about two things though. 1) The clips are less secure (a required compromise for tucking, sure), and 2) keeping the mag in the front. In my mind, your mag can take the backseat near your 7 or 8 o'clock and another weapon (a fixed blade for example) should be up front near your pistol.

    But everyone has different needs, so this may work for some who's niches I'm unaware of.

    You want a spare mag up front. Whether it's attached to the holster doesn't really matter. The only consideration for this setup is comfort and concealability. Setups like this are catching on but I prefer a separate mag holder, I can place it anywhere and it moves with me.

    I like this type of hoslter - the design itself helps me conceal because I'm small and have been told I dress like a fag. The problem is the belt attachment method is a kydex clip - which is a shit option.

    Currently I'm working with custom maker to get a better set up designed. The wing claw whatever thing really does help.

    I don't patronize Trex arms kydex any longer... For reasons that should be apparent if you stumble across any one of their 500 new IG videos posted in the midst of 8 week lead times

    From the pics you can see that your pistol really hugs your figure, much more than a typical archangel holster would allow. I'm about your same build and that's my #1 problem when carrying in anything other than an NPE holster.

    Yes... for me its the non curvature of the AA and the 2 "Hot spots" as I call them that the pull the dot loop snaps make above the belt line. That really makes an AA look like I've got a boomerang in my pants


    The solution I'm working on is a low profile split kydex loop with the whole unit built "twisted" so to speak against my abs. I'll have to thread a belt thru but the trade off is security

    I have a trex sidecar and find I like the design however it could use some improvements. I suppose my biggest complaint is that I need to adapt my belt of choice from my old leather and "western" stylebuckls to a nylon or cobra style then wear it with the buckle on the side. Something I can get away with now that the summer work will take me out of the office and into the field.

    I like the concept of the Sidecar enough to have tried it, but I found it lacking in a couple of areas. First, I like my pistol over at about the 1330 position and not directly over my right nut. The closer to centerline I get with the pistol, the more "hot spots" develop. The opposite mag carrier at 1130 doesn't bother me, but the pistol sure does. Pic below is flipped due to mirror, but you can see what I mean:

    My other issue w/ the Sidecar is the location of the belt clip directly over the mag holder (see red oval below). This makes it print unnecessarily, at least on me. I tried removing that clip and added a PTD loop in the recess beside the kydex clip (yellow arrow), but I couldn't get that side to ride low enough in that configuration... and of course it did nothing to make the overall rig more comfortable for me.

    I'm going to let my son try it out the next time I see him. If he doesn't like, I'll probably sell it.

    I can agree on all points. I rather like the gun right my center line but I'm a very small human.

    I've gone completely away from TRex at this point to another maker - JM custom kydex. He was very accommodating to my wishes and sent out a couple units for me - both of which are excellent.

    This is the wing claw AIWB with split kydex loop for G19/Xc1 and an angled mag carrier. Works very well and no belt clips.
