    Where do you carry on the waist: Righties Only

    Ok - this first one is righties only - sorry lefties, but I promise to make a lefties poll in a day or so, after this one has run its course!

    So here is the question:

    If you carry on the waist (either IWB or OWB), where do you position your gun?

    Using the clock dial, and understanding that an AD at 12 oclock would impact your ability to make babies, and an AD at 6 oclock would make it difficult to sit, where does your firearm ride?

    90% of the time I'm carrying @ 330-4 o'clock.

    The other 10% is divided between thesituation/clothes and my mood. I'll go w/a cross-draw if driving for and extended period......sometimes I carry @ 2 o'clock......and I even have a horizontal sholder rig I utilize on a rare occasion too(but that's the only OWB holster I own right now and not subject to this thread)

    I opted for 3 o'clock but in fact 3.30 most of time is more accurate. I do move from more usual 3.30 to 3.00 when driving.

    Usually at about 3:30. I accidentally averaged it out with Chris, I picked 4:00 on the poll.

    Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. It's worth it.

    I'm just getting started but, so far, I carry at about 4 o'clock. As I get more experience with carrying and try different holsters, this may change.

    3-4:00 depending on firearm size. The bigger ones go to 3:00 and the smaller ones go 4:00.
