    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.

    I carried AIWB for approximately 20 years, Glock 26/27 size pistol is very easy to conceal, 19/23 just a little more effort.
    The minimum is not what I want to defend my life with.

    No need to decide that your opinion should apply to everyone else too.

    Some don't have as much to lose as others. All relevant.

    When I sit down with my holster, the barrel will be pointed at someone sitting across from me if it fired ............... no one's been shot yet and aren't likely to . ..... because someone would have to pull the trigger and the trigger is protected and I don't play with the gun when it's on and in my holster. I don't appendix carry, but if I wanted to , I would not be concerned about it going off all by itself if the trigger is always protected.

    I think it screams "bad fashion choices" anywhere off of the Big Island. The hat says GUN.

    "Vasectomies are expensive." Hahaha!

    What this shows well is not only can AIWB be as safe, but in some ways it's more safe than strong side hip or behind the waist if those aren't properly executed, because with those you can flag the kidneys, pelvis, arteries, jigglies, legs, etc, if the muzzle is angled in (yes, I've seen this at the range, and I'm not even an instructor dealing with a lot of students.)

    When holstering AIWB I like to take a half step back with my strong side leg and push my pelvis forward a bit, it minimizes the chance of flagging anything until clicked into the holster.
