    Strong side IWB while driving

    I carry a CZ 75 B strong side IWB. When I'm driving it's not the most comfortable in the world, but I can deal with it. My main concern is a quick draw. For others that carry strong side IWB, do you adjust the position to take the seat belt out of the mix? I've moved the holster around to about 4:00 which helps a bit, I'm just curious what others do.

    I carry IWB at 4:30 to 5:00. I thought about driving, and tried it out. Very comfortable, and draws no problem. It is also the best concealing position on me. Works out well all around.

    Don't draw, drive.

    I know my draw is going to be slower when I'm seated especially in a car, but practice will help. I carry strong side 3:30 IWB. I've heard people say that a cross-draw holster helps draw speed from a seated position, but I've never tried it.

    +1...The only time I would draw while seated in the car would be when the car is parked and not running. If the vehicle is running, I'm driving away (if at all possible)

    My normal carry position is about 3:30-4:00 o'clock with a forward cant. While draw is going to be a bit slower it isn't a big problem. As matiki said, drawing is going to be a last resort if in the car, first option is get out of Dodge, second is use the car as my defensive weapon and third choice is my CZ.

    The turbo diesel is a bit slow on the draw but the IWB at 4:00 is passable

    While sitting, just keep watch around you. SA is 95%. If your paying attention, even a slow draw should be more than enough

    I agree with all on the driving away if/when possible. Certainly my best option. Just trying to see what others are doing when they carry. Thanks for the responses.

    I wear as I normally do, 3 to 3:30 and it's comfortable for the most part. I'm usually pretty aware when we are sitting still, if I see something I don't particularly like I move my shirt out of the way just in case, but between the options of driving away somehow and doors that lock when I first get into drive...I figure I should be okay.

    I bought an inexpensive cross-draw holster that clips on and off easily. It works great when driving.

    Something similar...

    If I know I'm going to be in the car for an extended drive, I'll use a shoulder holster. If in and out, I will use a clip-on IWB and remove it when seated, putting the gun between the seat and the center console, butt up for easy access.

    I think IWB is fine so long as you get the right position and it works with your body shape. I wear mine about at about 4:30 and it is quite comfortable driving.
