    I make my own holsters and make the "reverse J" hook out of kydex -- cut a strip about 5" long and 1/2" wide and shape it using a heat gun.

    The "Common J Hook" is just silly -- it puts all the weight on the waistband of your pants, not on your belt.

    If you already have an expen$ive holster you like, you can often convert such a holster into a tuckable with reverse J hooks -- just drill or punch holes on either side of the muzzle and attach the reverse J hooks with Chicago (post) screws. No need to buy a new holster.

    I have one of the "typical" J hook holsters, and I"m not too happy with it. I'm going to convert it to a velcro system so that the belt is supporting the weight.

    I don't know why anyone would offer holsters with the "J hook" design -- it puts all the weight on the waistband of your pants. The only thing the belt does is keep the holster from coming up with the gun when you draw.
