    Happen to anyone else?

    Or am I the only dork here?

    Decided to walk to the ATM today. Colt Government IWB 3:30-4:00. Wallet back right pocket. Keys right front. Light hooded sweatshirt over all; about one size larger than it has to be.

    After about 30-45 minutes I arrive at the ATM. Noone around-doesnt' seem this town doesn't wake up on Sunday till afternoon(guessin it's about 11:45am).

    Anyways, reach back for the wallet, and it hangs up on the holster muzzle.

    So, I ask the forum: When IWB, what do you do with the wallet?

    I carry mine in the opposite back pocket . That way no way the gun should accidently show and my weak hand is drawing my wallet.

    Scratchy - I had to make the swap - having always been right side wallet carry. But tho I don't recall exposing the piece while getting wallet - it proved so awkward that I did change to left rear.

    Now it seems 100% natural - plus as I go to get it, I am using weak hand - at least initially - this keeps right hand free!!

    Sorry dude - ''make the change'' - way to go.

    Country boy living in the big city here...I've gotten used to carrying my wallet in my left front pants pocket (I'm right handed).

    Another switcher here...
    I too had my wallet in my right rear pocket for over 30 years.
    It didn't really take me that long to break the habit.
    Now it's wallet left rear, spare mag left front.

    I quit using a wallet 20-25 years ago. Similar to Bud, I keep cards, licenses, bills in a front pocket. Keys in the other front pocket. Nothing in rear pockets.

    Left Front Pocket, sitting on one tends to give me a back ache. Stream line it all you really need is your DL, CCW card, N one CC, plus some cash.

    Nothing on pants but gun, light and extra mags. The rest of the stuff stays in my vest.
