    You state your not the only one that thinks AIWB is irresponsible and reckless, but you failed to mention who. Can you cite some sources?
    Otherwise it appears only to be YOUR opinion.

    Here's a suggestion - try it. I had very mixed feelings about AIWB, so I unloaded a gun and carried it AIWB around the house for a couple of weeks until I felt comfortable with it. I also practiced drawing and reholstering pretty much every night. After a couple of weeks without a single "misfire", I started carrying AIWB, which I have continued for the last year or so.

    I find it much more comfortable than any other IWB position, and it conceals far better. You can carry a lot more gun and conceal it perfectly with a AIWB carry. After I started carrying AIWB, I gradually moved from a Glock 43 up to what I carry today - either a SIG P229 or a Para Expert Commander. When I wear shorts and a button down shirt, both guns conceal to the point of being almost invisible on my 5'8" 175 lb frame.

    I often wonder why these threads start. Strange to want to share such an opinion, and what about small of back OP?

    Small of the back is completely safe, if the gun goes off the bullet will travel between your cheeks and cause no damage, dontchya know.

    The risk with small-of-the-back is falling on the gun and damaging your spine. Also a car crash could be catastrophic, but the same applies to AIWB.

    Sorry I couldn't find the sarcastic font on my laptop.
    And yes I have heard about the falling on your gun and damaging your spine, wonder if anyone really has any proof of that.

    I sometimes wonder if people have to work to come up with this sort of brilliance or if it just comes naturally...

    I have carried AIWB for over Ten years. I carry in a holster my finger doesn't / can't touch the trigger until I place it there. My guns have never fired on thier own. I don't see a problem. Well at least I have no problem. I can't say anything about some of the people out there.

    Everyone brings it to a holster. It's while holstering where the problem is. It's pointed at your femoral artery. Not to mention if you startle, your body crunches in. It's going to be harder to u holster.

    Yeah, but you probably shot yourself a hundred times (where it hurts) and everybody else about forty-seven times.

    Go ahead, ADMIT it - you're just irresponsible and reckless !!!

    That's pretty much the main reason I see too with people being against it, putting it back in once you have it out. It's not an argument anyone is going to win, because you're considered stupid if you even dare question that style of carry. Which I find pretty stupid myself, but hey, I don't have to be right or wrong because I don't carry that way and don't really care if somebody else puts a hole in themselves. If it ain't my body, it ain't my problem.
