    Main method of carry

    I'd like to know everyone's main method of carry here. I've got a load of questions, and this is the first step in determining what I may ask in the near future as a means to an end. This means I'll be taking things further depending on replies, and maybe we'll all put this together in a few weeks or so. I'm talking year 'round, no matter the weather or the chosen dress------what do you normally do for concealed carry? I'm talking holsters here. IWB (inside with belt), OWB (outside with belt), or other (ankle, shoulder, etc....).

    This is my first year of concealed carry before I was an open carry guy. Now for the last few months o matter the weather so far. I've been using a CrossBreed SuperTuck IWB holster, in both warm and cold weather. This summer in the hottest part I'll go for pocket carry so the holster doesn't sweat me to death again.

    IWB and a spare Magazine in a pocket holster or a P32 in the pocket holster.

    I voted "I carry inside the waist on belt," which I do unless I am adjusting to a lack of cover garments or a particular event setting (e.g., church), in which case I will use ankle carry.

    SmartCcarry for me, too, so I couldn't vote.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    IWB for me. Mtac with a G19, 23, or 26. Lately it has been the 19. I'm still very new to this and method of carry might change but for now the Mtac is comfy and works great. I'm actually still waiting on my paperwork to get my CCL, but because of other reasons I'm legal to carry concealed.

    Except when I wear a tucked in shirt with no sports coat or suit coat I carry OWB. I carry the S&W 1066 unless I am wearing the sport coat or suit coat and then I carry the Charter Arms Bulldog. When I am wearing a tucked in shirt and not coat I carry the Bulldog in the pocket. At all times I have the Colt Mustang in the pocket.

    I voted, "I carry IWB or OWB accordingly to conditions or my perceptions."

    The primary "conditions" being the weather and appropriate clothing for what I am doing.
