    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 do. I never wear untucked shirts, with IWB holster or without.

    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

    I never tuck my shirt in outside of work. I carry OWB about 1/3 of the time and keep shirt untucked for both IWB OWB carry.

    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.:cool:

    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.
