Tuckable IWB or undershirt shoulder holster
 
I am looking for a way to carry my full size 1911 with a rail on a regular bases that will be completely concealed (NO PRINTING) and will work with a tucked in shirt.

I am about 6 foot and 185 lbs depending on the day.

Need good options that are under $40.

I have been looking at these holsters:

http://www.midwayusa.com/product/919819/el-paso-saddlery-ez-carry-inside-the-waistband-holster-right-hand-1911-government-leather-natural

Does anybody have any suggestions on these or any shoulder carry rigs. Also I want to be able to buy it quickly and not have to wait 3 months to ship like everything else right now so it has to be in stock.

Thank you everyone in advance for your advice.

I would go with the intruder. If you were willing to wait I'd go for a hidden hybrid holster, but they are back ordered right now. Personally, The sof-tuck and others like it print to much and are not comfortable at all.

Bellyband.

I'm smaller than you, and can carry a full size 1911 under my arm with no printing. Worn between undershirt and over shirt (even dress shirts). http://www.midwayusa.com/find?&sortby=1&itemsperpage=20&newcategorydimensio nid=14574&cm_mmc=ps_google-_-AlphaSelfDefense-_-belly+band+holster-_-1t1&gclid=CJmOqoHV27UCFe0WMgod2VcA0w

I wear the bank a little higher than show in the above pics -- about the middle of my stomach, which puts the a little under my arm.

Only drawback is that it's not a fast carry method, but I think in most cases the ability to carry the weapon places that I otherwise might not be able to outweights the liklihood I'll be in a fast draw contest.

Alright, I bit the bullet and shoveled out the money for a Crossbreed Supertuk since they had so many great reviews on the net. Well there went too much of my paycheck. Guess its spagetti-o's and ramen noodles for the rest of the month :p

I love my Old Faithful holster. I bought a quick assembly kit for my Nano. It was less than $50 delivered and I would put it side by side against a crossbreed any day for quality, value and comfort. The same holster from crossbreed is $77 before shipping. And with the OFH I can adjust the retention and have a 50 year no questions warranty.
