Where do you carry?

Just wondering where everyone conceal carries. When I do it's on my belt on the back but I'm not liking that holster and not feeling it conceals very well without a jacket on. Just looking for better options.

Iwb between my belt buckle and hip during warmer months(my gut nicely conceals a compact there). This time of year, on my belt at about 4 o'clock on my hip

Re: Where do you carry?

I carry at 3 o'clock.

By carrying on the back, I hope you are not talking about from the wallet area to the middle of the back. Land on your backside and it's going to hurt. Get pinned on the ground or against a wall and you will find it very hard to draw your weapon. Bending forward at the waist lets everyone see your firearm. There are no positives for carrying past the 4 o'clock position for a right handed person.

Re: Where do you carry?

Appendix carry w/ one in the pipe. The holster makes or breaks your CC experience. Take some time figuring out where its most effective and comfortable for you to carry. Find a smaller gun shop that will allow you to try some holsters on with your personal firearm. Big box stores typically go into panic mode if you try this in the store. Never walk into a store and just pick up the first holster that fits your weapon, you will end up with a drawer full of them.

Re: Where do you carry?

I'm a south paw, so my positioning is a bit different. Im about 7-8 o'clock...or just behind the hip with my semi. My snub nose tends to sit nicely right on my hip.

Re: Where do you carry?

Everywhere I go....except for work because apparently the US Govt will protect me while I'm there...

What pistol are you trying to conceal? In a t shirt and shorts I print just about anything, if I put on a flannel shirt and a jacket I regularly carry a 1911 or Glock 22 in a normal belt holster at about the 4 oclock position.

It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

Re: Where do you carry?

I usually carry at the 3 o'clock position.I'll also echo what steve said,there are no benefits carrying past the 4 o'clock position.Its the worst possible place to carry imo.
