Finally got a supertuck

I've been wanting one for a couple years now, especially since I got my permit. I've been toting my Kimber compact cdp II in a Milt sparks vm2 and it's comfortable, but I got it from a gun show, so I was limited to brown(I wear mostly black belts and shirts). I've also been limited on which size 1911 I could carry. So last week I ordered a Supertuck off of midway for the faster shipping time.

I've only worn the Sparks and this holster so far, but as far as comfort goes this holster is definitely the better of the 2. I've hardly taken it off since I got it Friday, and have kept my Govt model High Standard in it. For some reason I just want to carry a full size 1911.

The full size hides just as well in this holster as my Compact Kimber does! Only a slight corner shows, and I'm hoping that once I lose a few more pounds(I'm down to 252 from 268, 5 weeks ago) and lose these love handles.

But I do have one problem which is supposedly easily remedied. The kydex is a little more loose than I'd like for a carry gun and might be the other cause for the grip showing slightly because it's able to shift outwards instead of pulling tight to my body. Granted, in my wasteband with my belt tight it's not going anywhere! But I still don't like the thought. Mine didn't come with instructions to mold the holster, and what I'm finding online in other forums is limited to a hair dryer and covering up areas that don't need to be shaped with a wet bath cloth. Does anyone have any experience with this and can offer some pointers until crossbreed gets back to me?

Also how do y'all let yalls ride? I've got mine at the stock height right now. With it being a bit loose adjusting the cant and height only seem to make it worse.

I kept mine in it's stock holes. Any higher and my gun would have been over the waistband almost. I haven't had any issues with it, save for getting out of my truck. Without fail my t shirt gets tucked up under the grip and I have to make sure to pull it back over.

As far as adjusting goes, I adjusted one for an LCP. The wet towel/ hair dryer trick is what Crossbreed recommends, and it works pretty well.
Not much to say really..I heated up the kydex..and used my finger to adjust the tension on the trigger guard. I can tell you this though. When they make those holsters, they are basically just sandwiching the kydex on top of the gun between what equates to two boat cushions.
I would tighten up the trigger guard only if you feel like retention is an issue. I know that when i wear mine once I tighten my belt up, the kydex gets a squeeze, so it's fits pretty well..The holster I adjusted was for my dad, and once he got the holster situated, it was too tight on the gun, and getting a grip on an LCP is bad enough as it is, so i had to loosen it up.
It must have been your hair dryer, cause I know a woman's hair dryer must push about 10000 watts.. :lol3:
I've been eying comp-tac's Minotaur mag carrier personally. And considering swapping to comp-tacs clips over Cross breeds. Maybe i'm paranoid, but I feel like when i'm rolling with a tucked shirt, those clips with the cross on them just scream out of place. Granted, they probably are more stable, and will last longer. Maybe i'll try the V clips I got..hmm..
