    I too am tall and lean, AIWB is the most comfortable way for me to carry my Kahr CM9. I also feel like its more secure being right in front of me, rather than 3-4 oclock. I dont have to worry about bending forward or drawing in the car.

    If you are afraid of blowing your nuts off, buy a different gun that doesnt go off when your fingers off the trigger.

    Colt Cobra in a Desantis "The Insider" holster. Very comfy. Barrel of the gun points down when standing, off to the right of my leg when sitting.

    I carry at 3:00/9:00, so why would I be afraid of blowing things off?

    I must be strange - I just slide my G23 into my pocket, make sure I'm wearing a loose shirt that covers it from printing against the material when I sit down, and go about my business. Don't have to remove it when I sit, drive, or anything else. Also, it's pretty natural to walk around with your hand in your pocket - so in scary areas, I can actually have my hand on the pistol, ready to draw without anyone noticing.

    I like to carry my revolvers in appendix carry. I carry a trio of Smiths, depending on which one strikes me. A 686 2" barrel, a Model 36 snub, and a Model 19 in 2 1/2". Appendix carry for a revolver is very comfortable.

    I am the same build as the OP, and every time I try AWIB the gun and my hip bones don't get along too well. And I don't understand how anyone could ever sit down without real discomfort.

    SRSLY...? An unholstered Glock in the pocket is a ballistic castration waiting to happen.

    If you are "appendix" carrying and the gun is against your hip bone or your leg, you're doing it wrong. The muzzle should go between your legs when you sit.

    I don't have any pockets big enough to slide a Glock 23 into - much less a Glock 26 with my hand on the grip. I can get it into a pocket - but getting it out in a hurry would be impossible.

    I don't know about you mike, but when I remove my gun, I keep my finger off the trigger. So unless my "self" finds away to unholster my weapon, wrap itself around the grip safety, and pull the trigger, I'm pretty sure I'll be alright.

    Do you avoid carrying IWB on your hip because you don't watch to shoot your butt off?

    Cocked and locked means that the hammer is cocked and the safety is on (so technically the "locked" part only applies to guns with a thumb safety). It does not mean that there is no round in the chamber.

    Accidents happen, regardless of how clever and careful one perceives oneself to be. I really do believe in the NRA Rules For Safe Firearms Handling, and AIWB makes keeping it pointed in a safe direction at all times an impossibility.

    So, you have the hammer down, the safety off, and one in the chamber?

    Ahh. So when a gun is holstered AIWB, the gun can "accidentally" go off while the trigger guard is covered? Explain that to me. Are you worried about an accident when unholstering while carrying AIWB? Because I think we all know that accidents happen when unholstering from a 3:00/9:00 position as well, regardless of how clever and careful one perceives oneself to be.

    That would be the opposite of cocked and locked. "Cocked and locked" makes no mention of a round being chambered, so the opposite of it would have nothing to do with one in the pipe or not.

    But, the whole point of carrying in condition 1 is that all you have to do to fire is click off the safety. That requires a round in the chamber.
