Carrying Poll

For those of you that carry a firearm please vote and tell me why you carry that way.

The problem is that I don't know what I don't know.

Re: Carrying Poll

I voted straight, my primary carry gun is a Glock 22 in a Crossbreed super tuck. Of all the holsters I have owned over the years this is by far the most comfortable and concealable.

Re: Carrying Poll

I carry mine straight, no real reason other than comfort I guess, just always have and it's comfortable.

Re: Carrying Poll

Autos with alloy frames lend themselves to cant draw.

I generally carry revolvers because I'm an 'olde guy'.

Re: Carrying Poll

Cant for my semis, straight drop for the revolvers.

Re: Carrying Poll

Does one way or the other lend its self to better concealment and/or ease of draw?

The problem is that I don't know what I don't know.

Re: Carrying Poll

I think you are looking for an answer that doesn’t exist.
No two guys are the same, and different guns carry better one way than the other.
It took me many years and several holsters in different designs to come up with what was best for me. Bottom line, if the holster is inconvenient or uncomfortable you will not wear it.

Re: Carrying Poll

^ he's right. Everyone is different.

For me, I never wear a concealment garment. By that I mean I never wear a vest, wind breakers, long sleeve dress shirt, etc. I'm normally in shorts and an under armour t-shirt in the spring/summer. So for me having the semi in a holster with cant helps me hid the gun better. My Glocks have a large fat grip and having it ride that way makes less of the grip stick out from behind me. If I were to use a straight drop the grip would be exposed more. You really just have to try different setups to get the gist. I wear mine about 4:00.
