    I carry OWB at 3 o'clock. Never thought to use as an arm rest. Doesn't even seem comfortable.

    Pretty much every police officer I know does it for some reason. It appears to be a habit for them.

    That's what I was gonna say. Most of the cops that come into my store... I work for Starbucks... use their pistol and extra mags as a place to rest the hands.
    Protection is a responsibility not just a right.

    No......never done it, never felt the urge. You need to steer clear of this notion as it's evil. Not simply forbidden. Evil......with an 'E'.

    Ill rest my hand there like the cops do at home or at a friends house, NEVER HAVE I EVER DONE IT ANY WHERE ELSE. Bad thing to do, some might see it as "threatening"

    haha... I feel like so much less of a douche after reading this thread! I go for the arm rest all the time. It would be really comfortable if it didn't seem like such a hoky cowboy thing to do.

    I'll be standing there talking to some one, go for the arm rest, catch myself and try to play it off as a stretch... follow up by doing the same on the left side to make it more convincing.
