    Maybe I'm an internet ninja, but the most naturally accessible and quickest draw position is between 10 and 2 (including cross draw).
    Behind the hip, I like the "cavalry" (palm out) draw - though I've never actually worn that, either. But I'm more confident that retsupt99 has field tested and settled on it. I'm right-handed and seriously considering a left-hand CTAC (and a right-hand one for the other positions).

    Don't rule out "Appendix carry" (A-IWB). I carried at 4-5 before I tried A-IWB and the only time I carry behind the hip now is when I have to tuck my shirt in. I find that A-IWB is faster, more accessible when seated, and easier to get the gun into action when you are in the middle of a fight at contact range (in a clinch, ground-fighting, etc.).

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    Hmm... I'm gonna have to play with appedix carry tonight. I carry 4:00 IWB and while in my mind appendix carry seems to make for easier, quicker access, I always thought it would be uncomfortable when seated (how I spend most of my day ).

    I can carry my G17 in AIWB all day with no problems, even when spending a lot of time seated. That said, I usually carry a G19 simply because it's more comfortable and the grip doesn't print as much in lighter-weight clothing (t-shirts, etc. for summertime).

    Try to curtail the jokes, quips and "one liners" in serious forum threads that are asking serious firearm carry related questions and not located in the Humor & Off Topic area of the forum...or at least add/post something that is in some way helpful/beneficial to the thread topic.
    Thanks.

    I am 6' and am well over 275 (I saw what the poundage at the DR. Office and I need to start doing better two armed push aways!) I carry both my P89 and my PT111 at about 3:30 IWB. As I was told wear it a bit move it forward or backward till you find the sweet spot you like.

    I do not wear it over the spine, but rather over the right kidney...5:00 is my strong side.

    Wow. Did you always carry that way? I tried simulating that and it seems like something you could get used to in no time. Are there any advantages to that or just your personal preference?
