    I watched the video. Do you have trouble keeping your finger off the bang switch or something?

    I don't know if I carry AIWB or not since my appendix is on the other side of my body. I'm left handed and the pistol is between 10:00 and 11:00. A 9:00 carry digs into my hip bone and the pistol grip has a tendency to stick out through my clothes no matter how loose. Any further back and it's a pain when I sit down. I tried cross draw positions and they seem awkward. It's the most natural and comfortable holster placement for me.

    I got nothin'
    I'm not sure I'd use that choice of wording with the subject matter at hand.

    And it appears you have at least tried AIWB, but you found it uncomfortable: Aiwb carriers? What size pistol do you use?

    So, AIWB is dangerous (or uncomfortable?), thumb safeties are a bad idea, hammer fired guns are a bad choice, striker only. Gotcha.

    I am by no means an expert, not even close, and thus I know the "advice" I can give is limited and I take that into account when I post. My advice to you is that you should stop preaching your uninformed beliefs as Gospel.
    You forgot our OP is also an expert on holster materials: Kydex is Junk for a Holster (Post 27), not that you'd not buried the matter, yourself, Consigliere.

    Yes, Sir.

    You are a wise man @Fizban . The force is strong in this one.

    I considered moving this to OTH, but to be honest, it is very instructive where it is. Seriously.


    This is good stuff. It is serious too, and we can all learn from many here.

    I carry about 3:30 OWB and always wondered about AIWB. Now I have learned quite a bit. Really. I may forget it all by tomorrow, but I did learn it. Something else to consider.

    It's fine if you don't like something, don't want something or simply don't understand something. It's not fine to have virtually zero intelligence on something yet profess to have the final say on it; so it's not about 'daring' to question something. It's about seeking knowledge vs. simply seeking to argue something that you have no actual knowledge of.

    To address your "main reason" comment; if you're doing AIWB correctly, your firearm is not in danger of ever hitting anything if you were to have an AD. Furthermore, AIWB, probably more than any other carry position, allows for full visual concentration on your firearm when holstering so the actual chances of an AD are greatly diminished versus, say, carrying at 4 o'clock where you can't truly see what's happening as you holster. Once again, this is if you're doing things correctly. If you're not then, just like any facet of firearms handling, you're probably putting someone, or something, at risk; and just like others have already noted, there's not a "safe" way to do things wrong and that is true no matter how you choose to carry.
    Well, I never once said anyone here did say or would say you were stupid for questioning it. But DC isn't the only forum and, the internet being the internet, many people would and have counter-argued a point with "you're stupid". But hey, that's the internet right? I choose not to AIWB because I don't have the body style that is comfortable for me to pull off comfortably. I agree that it can be method of carry that can be made safer, but too many just get an IWB and shove it down the front of their pants. Those people are more at risk, IMHO, of putting holes where there weren't any before. I once saw a man touch off a 1911 trying to insert it back into his Sticky holster that was shoved down into his belted jeans. The bullet grazed the idiot, but he got pretty tore up from the blast itself. He's fine today and has never carried in a Sticky holster or IWB again.

    So, there's my argument. People generally don't "do it right" and they very much can be hurt. That's all I ever intended to mean.

    Sound opinion. This is s good reason to not carry apprndix.

    This ND sounds like it was closer to the hip or behind the hip, rather than 1:00. Yes, sticky,"one size fits most" isn't a great holster; especially for a heavy pistol like a 1911. There are plenty of quality holsters available for the 1911.

    If I'm remembering the time right, it was around 2 o'clock.
