I carry IWB or OWB accordingly to conditions or my perceptions
I'll roll the dice and over a cup of coffee and viewing this forum, will make my decision
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....).
I carry a gun because I can't carry a cop!!

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.
"Fear is nothing more than an emotional response to the perception of danger coupled with the belief that I can't handle it."
"If you change that belief to 'I can handle it', you'll no longer experience FEAR. You'll simply see what you are facing is a challenge... an opportunity to test yourself.
I believe in gun control...... Thats why I use TWO hands.
OWB - 4:00, 1-2 mags at 8-9

IWB 1911...Sparks VM2 even in Phoenix's 110 degree days with shorts, tucked in t-shirt, and the most obnoxious Hawaiian shirt open and untucked.
Treat me good, I'll treat you better. Treat me bad, I'll treat you worse.
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.
Just my .02
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.

Not in the poll--pocket carry.
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.
I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.
I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
Veni, Vidi, Velcro
OWB at 2:30-3:00 depending on whether im sitting, standing, whatever.
IWB for me mostly, with couple different hosters. Tuckable.
