IWB or OWB at 3:30, with BUG rear pocket carry~! :scrutiny:;):D

I carry at my 6 o'clock with a palm out draw. Not the best option if you have to sit down a lot.

Pocket carry almost exclusively - Mika round or square cut. I had Robert make me an IBW with the holster canted about 25 degrees to wear at 4:30 position. I should have had him cant it more; I don't use the IBW very often as I don't care for the way it feels.

Appendix carry (1:30) IWB Fist Kydex for my 642, or deep conceal smartcarry. :cool:

Pocket carry, or very rarely cavalry draw at 5:00 IWB. KT PF-9.

OWB or IWB just behind my right hip. If I'm carrying my 642 its in a pocket holster on my left front pocket since that is where I carry it as a BUG at work. Tried ankle carry, didn't like it. Tried a shoulder holster, and didn't like that either. Rarely, I will carry crossdraw if I'm going on a long distance road trip. I MAY try a shoulder holster again for long distance motorcycle trips.

IWB holster by Kramer worn at 4:00

Either strong side 4:00ish or strong side appendix carry for my primary.

Either appendix, ankle, or pocket for my backup if I run one.

Under the right armpit, shoulder carry. Left front for pocket carry. And I'm right-handed.

Yes, it confuses me, too.

3:00 in a paddle holster.

October 7, 2007, 11:32 PM
Primary at 3:00 either IWB or pancake style on belt.

Back-up P3AT in right rear pocket in DeSantis Nemisis.

Pocket carry or IWB @ Appendix or 3 o'clock.

October 8, 2007, 01:23 AM
The Kimber Ultra CDP .45 in a Bianchi 105 . . . at SEVEN O'CLOCK.

Yep . . . I'm left-handed. The muzzle points as if it were going into my wallet pocket. A loose shirt or jacket totally hides the .45 and the Bianchi 105 pulls the grip tight to the body.

In my left front pocket . . . rides a Model 36 or a Kel-Tec P-32 in a pocket holster.

3:00 IWB holster works for me.

October 8, 2007, 12:13 PM
About my 4:00 - 4:30 in a pancake holster

October 8, 2007, 12:33 PM
Kimber Custom Target or Kahr E9 at 3:00 .

October 12, 2007, 12:54 PM
OWB Gould & Goodrich @ 4:00 o'clock w/ a Glock 22.... IWB doesn't work well w/ my coke bottle figure (2-liter) lol :)

Right now, a Smith & Wesson 39-2, in an OWB holster, at about 3:30.

3:30 / 4:00 position iwb in a BearClaw Holsters (http://www.bearclawholsters.com) 'Hidden Asset'.

No 'one solution' works for everyone but this is what works for me. I almost never use an OWB for carry except sometimes when I wear a suit jacket (sundays sometimes). In that case I have an Alessi belt slide that really holds the gun nice and tight - 3:30 / 4:00 position.

IWB, just behind my strong side hip. Pocket carry with a J Frame smith airweight is nice too when wearing slacks or cargo shorts!

I usually carry my .38 snub in my right front pocket or appendix carry IWB at about 2:00-2:30. When I'm carrying my Commander it is usually at about 3:30-4:00 or crossdraw at 10:30-11:00 when I'm driving. I find the appendix and crossdraw positions much more comfortable and accessible when seated, as when driving. I have no problem concealing any reasonably sized sidearm in those positions either, as long as I pay attention to wardrobe. However, since I live in an open carry state, "printing" or "flashing" is not really a big deal anyway, and I do open carry on occasion, mostly out in the woods.
