Comp-Tac’s C-Tac “Shirt Tucker” offers multiple heights and angles, concealability and speed. Behind the wheel, the Bond Arms Ranger holster rides comfy and compact, though you’ll need a Bond Arms Ranger derringer to go in it. Not many problems can pop up at your window that two rounds of .45 Colt or .410 buckshot won’t fix. Cool CarrY options “Shirt-tucker” holsters are becoming very popular. i f you haven’t heard enough of these stories, I’ll let you borrow some of mine, like the retired deputy working private investigations, his pistol snug in a high-ride hip holster as he sat behind the wheel of his car doing surveillance on a cheating husband. Surprised in that position, he died reaching for his inaccessible gun — and not quite making it. Other stories involve carjackings of victims who possessed handguns — they just didn’t have ‘em where they could speedily get them into play. There was the detective whose backup gun — a small revolver in his pants pocket — suddenly burst through weak stitching, fell down his leg to the floor and became Harry Hairball’s primary weapon; the robbery victim who was shot simply because his pocket rocket “printed” through the material at the wrong moment and the stickup man panicked. There are dozens more, some funny, many sad and some truly tragic. I prefer the happy tales of guns that seemingly came outta nowhere, surprisin’ scumbags who just weren’t ready for a “victim” who’d done their holster-homework. I can’t cover all the bases for you, but I’ll try first to present you with some options you may not have seen or noticed before, and second, to get you thinkin’ where you might wanta park that second pistol, or how best you can keep that howitzer handy while driving to GreatAunt Emily’s place — okay? Here we go. * Filling Your Hand From JoHn a Few diFFerent angles Connor The SuperTuck (left) by CrossBreed and the Ultimate Shirt Tucker (right) from Hoffner’s all offer adjustability. TAG Shellback Tactical Seat Caddy gets you set up on-duty with pockets for about anything, even mags.
