I'm getting a Keltec P-11 for carry, and due to the way I dress I have to have a tuckable holster. I've found this one (http://www.desantisholster.com/storefrontB2CWEB/itemdetail.do?action=prepare_detail&itm_id=10957&itm_index=0) and was wondering if anybody had any experience with it.
Are there any other tuckables that someone could recommend.

Try the High Noon line. The tuckable models are at the bottom of the page.
Clips that aren't on top of the gun are better, a bulky holster will often be more comfortable and shift around less, which means better concealment since it won't be as wide on your hip, won't shift around and tent yout shirt, and it won't require fiddling to keep it in place.
Personally I like CrossBreed (http://www.crossbreedholsters.com/)'s stuff, the KT p11 would be borderline for the SuperTuck/MiniTuck, it would be up to you on how much holster you are willing to store while not wearing it ... you won't notice the holster's bulk while you are wearing it if you have pants that fit and a proper belt.
If budget is an issue, KHolster makes a similar rig for a bit less, I hear good things but CrossBreed has my business for holsters, I intend order one for each carry gun I buy in the future.

I love High Noon holsters...I use the non-tuckable(Mr. Softy) version of this Hidden Ally (http://www.highnoonholsters.com/Product_Line/Hidden_Ally/hidden_ally.html) for my PT709. Excellent ItW holsters so thin and light its almost like your carrying in nothing.

Thanks for the leads guys. They all look good, and unfortunately I guess it's impossible to know which will be more comfortable for me with out trying them.
I love the size of the High Noon and Desantis, but it looks like the pistol will be riding next to my skin, whereas the Crossbreed and Kholster have higher leather backers. :banghead:
I like the magazine carrier built into the Desantis, but I think comfort will top that. Arrgh! I hate guessing at tough decisions.

I've got to admit I just looked up the Keltec P11 since I wasn't familiar with the pistol, or the entire Keltec lineup for that matter.
At the Keltec website it says the P11 weighs 14 oz empty! Hey, my wallet must weigh more than that.:rolleyes:
You could probably carry that little thing in just about anything and it wouldn't make much difference. However, it does seem those Crossbreed style holsters are a lot of holster for just 14 oz of pistol.
If I was holstering a 14 oz pistol, I'd seriously look at those thin leather holsters from High Noon like the Bare Asset/Mr Softy for $27, or the Split Decision/Hidden Alley for $37.
Now if I'm looking for a holster for my S&W 4506, I'd rather have that Crossbreed than those thin leather High Noon models.

I placed my order for the DeSantis, the belt clip was the final factor. Since it hooks under the belt, it should show less. I'll probably end up with a couple more eventually, but I guess it's a starting point.
Thanks for the help.

I carry my P11 in my front pocket. Fits fine and looks fine. If I had to go with holster, i have found after many holsters for numerous guns, that "Crossbreed" holsters are the best. Their super-tuck and mini-tuck are the very best. And they don't cost much. You can't find better.

I can't do pocket carry due to the way I dress, but the crossbreed look great. I'm almost convinced I could carry a 1911 in one, and may try it some day, if I ever have the spare coin to grab one.

I used to have the P-11 and though it was a really good gun, I did not have an adequate holster for concealed carry. My best friends wife had fallen in love with the gun and wanted one for her purse. I did however pick up a KelTec PF9, the single stack version of the P-11. I carry it in a tuckable IWB holster from Comp-Tac known as their Minotaur MTAC. Here is mine and a website as well. It is very comfortable and carries the gun very securely.
