David, You're right. The VMll is an excellent holster, and I have recommended it to many of my customers who are looking for the ultimate in a tuckable style holster. It's the best one out there for those who find a need to wear the shirt tucked in over the gun. Obviously it works great in the standard mode also, and is very comfortable.
About the VMax as a tuckable -- how the hell do you do it?!!
I love the VM2 design, BTW. I've got a VMax for a Glock 23 (and to his credit, Tony tried to talk me out of it -- the G23 is just too thick to take proper advantage of the VMax, but I *had* to have one).
Anyway, in trying to use it as a tuckable I found two problems:
1) I have 1-1/4" loops on every holster I own, including the VMax, however the tuckable clips that come with it are much longer, making them protrude below the belt. Very obvious and pretty much negating the advantages of a tuckable.
2) Most important -- I can't get the damn thing tucked without three hands, a jack stand and a flashlight! You have to have the gun in the holster before you start -- kind of hard to put it in *after* your shirt is tucked in. BUT, with the gun in the holster, the damn thing is so heavy that I can't keep my pants up and tuck my shirt in. Okay, picture this (or don't, if you know me well enough to accurately picture it <G>), I've got the gun in the holster, pants unzipped and ready to tuck the shirt in. I'm dressed for work, so it's a starched button-down, which needs one hand to hold the pants/belt in place and the other to tuck the shirt in. I make my way from left to right, tucking as I go. I get to the holster. Somehow I've got to get the stiff shirt into the slot allowed by the Kydex loops, keep the rest of the shirt relatively stable, keep my pants up and somehow end up looking presentable. It hasn't worked for me yet. I always end up with a crick in my neck (from twisting to get the shirt tucked into the loops) and a shirt that's wrapped halfway around my body like some starched dhoti. What am I doing wrong?
