    So I spent the weekend with a guy I haven't seen in ages. We went up to the range and, lo and behold, he carries AIWB. I was immediately reminded of this very thread and we got into a back and forth discussion about it. After watching him carry out holstering and re-holstering with a very well made holster designed exactly for that purpose, I'm completely willing to say I thought wrong about many aspects of it. From what I saw, it was no more dangerous than any mode of carry save for "Mexican carry"..which no one is going to convince me is safe. Lesson learned and I'm glad to be more knowledgeable about it. Does it work for me? Nope, but that's physical issues.

    The goal is to NOT shoot yourself anywhere. A quality holster, fit to the gun does this while concealing. The draw and holster are where nd's happen. These can be safe when performed properly.


    Great training video. Thanks for the post!

    It's not as dangerous as feeding the bears at the dump.

    Due to my somewhat rotund shape appendix carry does not work well for me.

    And yes I have heard about the falling on your gun and damaging your spine, wonder if anyone really has any proof of that.
    A couple years ago we were stacking hay in the neighbors barn. We had a young couple helping us, both were LEO's. He was carrying a Glock SOB. At one point, he slipped on loose hay on the trailer and went down on his back and he was out of commission the rest of the day. It put a serious hurting on him. I could see how serious harm could come from that scenario.

    Stacking hay is hazardous to your health.
    I still suffer from tendonitis in both my elbows from throwing hay.

    Yep. Just got cortisone in my shoulder a couple of weeks ago from last hay season. I don't even like horses. They'll probably carve on the rotator cuff before it's said and done. It took me years before I could afford the land that I'm almost too broke down to stay up with. WTH is up with that? Would a reverse mortgage on life make sense?

    If it makes you feel better it's going to get cold soon. It will be in in the 70's.
