I'll just have out with it? #1 (permalink) Tue Apr 09, 2013 19:16 pm   I'll just have out with it?
 

Hi, I assume 'have out with it' means 'share a secret' in the following context?

Okay here it is. Iíll just have out with it. Almost every single word of the some 441,271 Iíve produced over the last ten years has been written inside Starbucks.

How popular is this phrasal verb (to have out with sth)?

Many thanks,
Torsten

It doesn't mean 'share a secret'. It just means 'I'll explain without any fuss or preamble'.
It's become quite antiquated.
