A Straight-talking S.F. Police Officers representative tells the media what’s so.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 21st April 2009

This is nearly a 3-year old story, but I’m posting it because I’m impressed with straight talk and this is a great example.

Gary Delagnes, head of the San Francisco Police Officers Association tells the media the truth about a good policeman and felon who caused his death during a high-speed chase. The link to the press conference is below. Don’t you wish we could count on straight talk from all sectors of our government?

Officer Nick Birco was killed July 26, 2006 when his patrol car was struck by a van carrying persons involved in an earlier robbery.

Customer experience exactly matches….

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 28th March 2009

Today’s email brought a thank you and review on a recent arrival of a new Tucker Texas Heritage IWB.

The customer’s experience exactly describes the intention of the design of the holster.

It’s great that he noticed/felt exactly what Tucker set out to accomplish with this holster.


I finally received my carry permit a week or so ago, and have now had a chance to wear my Texas Heritage holster with my XD 40 Sub-compact.  I am really amazed at how comfortable it is to wear and how well a tucked shirt hides my pistol.

The holster does a great job keeping my pistol away from my body – there are no sharp edges.  The slight pressure is actually comforting after awhile.  There are certainly no security issues with this holster, my XD fits snugly but draws easily.  Given the top quality leather and workmanship, and perfect functionality, I couldn’t be more pleased with my purchase.

Best regards, Austin”

A Truly Great Ford Commercial

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 2nd December 2008

I think you’ll find this video worth the 4 minutes it takes to watch. I don’t want to spoil it by telling you why you should watch it, except to say it’s a great short story of a returning Iraq vet, told in just a few minutes.

It has a very nice ending, indeed. Click here.

Tucker’s Texas Heritage IWB – more popular than ever

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 12th June 2008

I’m amazed at how many new customers are still discovering the Tucker Texas Heritage

Tucker’s Answer IWB gets most of the publicity, but people just love their Texas Heritage IWB’s. It’s just so dang comfortable and it’s all premium Hermann Oak cowhide.

Here’s the most recent thread on 1911forum.com

He knew right away.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 9th June 2008

What would prompt a guy to write a review of a new IWB holster only an hour after he got it in the mail? Usually, people like to wait to form an opinion. This guy received his Tucker Gunleather Answer and knew right away what he had in his hands.

He could appreciate the quality and workmanship but when he put it on, it surprised him how well the holster worked, even without any break-in.


 Here’s his review.

Have you got your Answer yet or are you still filling up your holster drawer?

“Spend your money on quality leather…”

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 25th May 2008

     I took a class at United States Shooting Academy (usshootingacademy.com) last week.  Course was Intro to Marksmanship and it is the basic course so you can move on to Defensive handgun courses.

     I wore “The Answer” to the course as I carry every day so it was just normal to carry to class.  As the course proceeded and we had shot I was showing empty and then holstering my XD45.  One of the instructors noticed the holster and asked about it. 

     I was proud to show him my Tucker Gunleather “The Answer“.  He was impressed and commented on the quality. 


     Later, as the class was winding down and we were back in the classroom to get the certificates for completion the subject of holsters for CCW came up.  So the instructer said “Jim, show them your setup.  So I stood up, lifted my shirt and showed my 18 fellow classmates my “Answer.”

     The instructor said, this is what I mean by investing in a quality holster and gunbelt.  I probably have spent $10,000.00 in holster in the last 20 years.  I have boxes of them at home that I wore  and tossed in the box.  Spend your money on quality leather and you won’t regret it. 
    Thanks again for a quality product.  People can see the quality… and I got to plug Tucker Gunleather.

The Cover Up remains a favorite holster

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 19th May 2008

Tucker’s Cover Up IWB remains a favorite with our customers and got a recent boost from the American Cop article written by Mark Hanten. The result of the article was a flood of orders (Tucker’s catching up on them).

I was invited recently to visit a forum with which I wasn’t familiar by a customer who told me that’s how he had discovered us. The Forum is called Total Protection Interactive. (You may want to check it out, especially if you’re considering appendix carry.)

The thread was all about how people were using Tucker’s Cover Up so I registered and introduced myself. 

Soon after a great post showed up in the form of a review of the the Cover Up for appendix carry and I thought I’d share it with you. You may get some good carry ideas.

Here’s a picture from the post. There are many other well-done photos.


The Cover Up remains one of the most versatile IWB’s available anywhere. In fact, we just came out with a kydex version of it and a leather-lined kydex version called the Silent Thunder IWB with a short turnaround time for delivery. Demand is already strong.

M1911.org Review of Tucker’s “Easy Reach” kydex.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 11th May 2008

Reviews of Tucker’s new kydex holsters are beginning to show up online. Here’s one that popped up today, well-written by Don DeBusk and published in the M1911.org ezine.

There’s also a link to a discussion forum as well.

This is one of many reviews and articles about Tucker’s new Kydex holsters. There are several gun writers with samples in hand, writing articles right now.

One of the reasons I’m so excited about these new holsters is the wonderful feedback we’re getting, but another is that we can actually grow our business with orders we can ship within a couple of weeks instead of adding to our backlog.

Our kydex Easy Reach and Silent Thunder holsters ship in 3 weeks from time of order.

Is Tucker’s Answer still popular?

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 28th April 2008

You bet! Tucker’s Answer IWB is still one of our best sellers. More importantly, we still get the great comments from happy customers:

“Hi Rob:
 The Answer arrived with this afternoon’s mail. In a word, ‘Nice!’ I am very impressed with the level of workmanship and care that went into crafting the holster and would be grateful if you would take a moment to convey my appreciation to Mr. Tucker the next time you speak to him. He is indeed an artist. It is easy to understand now why Tucker Gunleather has such a loyal following.
Thanks again. Best, Evan”

    “After having had “The Answer” for these past months and wearing it daily, I can honestly state it will be a challenge each day to decide which holster I wear. (He’s comparing to the new Silent Thunder he just received.) Both are very comfortable (that makes them comforting) to wear, “tuckable”, secure and of the highest quality.  Thanks for the great products, the amazing service, sincere help you provided and the honesty with which you deal.  I will continue to recommend you to everyone that has a question or need for a superb quality holster.”

“Just got my Answer in the mail yesterday. This is one QUALITY holster! It’s much better workmanship in my opinion than the M tac.  My Glock 27 is in it right now as I am wearing it around the house. i found the “middle” adjustments of the clips to work the best for me. Anyway, I can’t say enough good things about it.  Glock Talk “

“+ one on the quality! I’ve had my “Answer” on with my G19 for the 5 hour drive from Phoenix to Las Vegas, no problem. Glock Talk”

“I wear it for up to 18 hours a day and don’t even notice it. I have an XD45C in it. Glock Talk”

“Answer all the way…I love mine…I wore it with my G27 yesterday from the time I got up until I went to bed, very comfortable. The suede backing is awesome, their clips are perfect. I tried an M-Tac and it wasn’t for me. Try both and you’ll see…Tucker’s “Answer” has been my best investment yet as far as holsters go!!!! Glock Talk 04/28/08.”

Holster stuff.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 28th March 2008

This is the Tucker Gunleather blog, right? We should be talking about holsters, right?

OK, will do.

Tucker’s new Silent Thunder leather-lined kydex holsters are flying off the shelves. We’ve been getting them out the door in 3 weeks or less and we’ve got a great product.

Click here to read a recent email from the proud owner of a Silent Thunder belt holster.

I’d say he likes it. What do you think?

Don’t need the leather lining. No problem. We make the Easy Reach Kydex holsters just for you. You get tremendous adjustability and complete tension control. Why struggle with what you’ve got if it’s not just right for you? Visit our website.
