    Quite surprised..and well pleased with OWB.

    I usually carry with IWB (sticky or Remora). I like these style holsters for ease of use and stability they offer I the WB. But today I had a lot of running around to do all day...was going to be in and out of the car a lot all day so I decided to give my OWB leather a chance to see the world with me. I have had it for a few months now but just really did not wear it.

    Boy was I surprised and pleased at the performance (both comfort and concealment)...So now I have some decisions to make....Had I known in the beginning how many decisions are necessary for CC I may have opted for a new set of golf clubs.....Oh..I forgot..I already did that also......

    Only time I carry IWB is with my snubbie in the summer when all I'm wearing is a light shirt (well, and pants, obviously). Any other time I either have a coat or light jacket over a thicker shirt and MUCH prefer OWB. Infinitely more comfortable and still very concealable with the right attire.

    i understand what you are saying...
    For me IWB is quick and easy, no belt to thread, but OWB is a bit more comfortable.
    I have switched to OWB most of the time now, and my shirts still cover it very well.

    Ive tried OWB but never had much luck with it. Even though im normally in a leather vest at least even in summer the thing will show if I move wrong. Longer vest would have to be down around the tops of my legs like a over coat and none of my jackets are that long. Maybe holsters have improved since I tried it.

    I may also switch if I can figure how to properly conceal during the summer with it......My summer problem is that my shirts are tucked in..so I see a problem.....

    OWB is easy if you can wear untucked shirts. I wear Reyn Spooner Hawaiian shirts in warm weather and they do a great job of concealing. The problem in cooler weather is that most long sleeve shirts have angled tails rather than square bottoms and wearing them out looks a bit sloppy. I do wear short sleeve mock turtles with square bottoms in dark colors and they conceal reasonably well. Looking to buy some square bottom flannel shirts next winter that will look okay untucked.

    IWB always makes me feel like something is jammed in my side. A Glock 30 tends to do that. OWB is so much more comfy, and my Duluth Longtail Ts or untucked shirts cover just fine.

    IWB is just uncomfortable in my opinion. OWB carry or pocket carry is what I do.

    I have an IWB holster but I only use it on special occasions. I OWB carry 1911s 90% of the time. I change over to an XD for a break.
