    Odd Question...

    i carry IWB an am wondering something. Do you wear your IWB holster so it touches your skin or do you wear it between your underwear and your pants. i am currently using a cheap nylon IWB holster for my G19 but am waiting on a custom leather IWB from Adamsholsters.com, and i wear between my underwear and pants with the nylon holster but that might change when in get the leather.

    Odd question maybe...but nobody here would ever question an odd question since everything's odd depending on where you're coming from or where you're going.
    I wear my IWB holsters and carry pistol between my undies and my pants. Of course we're talking below the belt and above the belt, and depending on holster design, it lies where it lays. I love things against my skin where I know they're there. But I'll never let anything come between me and my underwear. Hey! That rhymes! I'm a poet and didn't know it!

    I actually wear some kind of undershirt tucked in when carrying IWB, so really it's between the shirt and pants.

    When I wear my Crossbreed IWB I wear an undershirt as well so outside the underwear for me.

    I also wear an undershirt. I don't mind the holster rubbing against my skin, but the grip is another thing.

    Between the boxers and the pants; undershirt is optional.

    I've heard that leather is really much nicer than kydex (all I've had IWB experience with) with less slippage and more contour...
    That which does not kill us leaves us broken and bleeding...

    Don’t mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

    Anyway, I wear undies so I wear my IWB between undies and my pants. The only contact with skin is the butt of the pistol against my love handles.

    I am not into the undershirt and then a cover garment. I pull up on the boxers a little high on the right side so the boxer is between my skin and IWB leather holster,

    I always have a tank top under whatever shirt I am wearing. Even with the leather backing of an MTAC, I still prefer to have something between the holster and skin.

    But even without the shirt, I would go between pants and underwear.

    The only odd question is the one not asked. No worries.

    +1 for the undershirt

    -1 for underwear (don't wear any)

    I wear a leather IWB and it doesn't bother me one bit.

    My crossbreed is sitting up against my bare side more often than not in the 100+ degrees summers here. An undershirt only makes it hotter!

    No undershirt needed for me. Got lucky with my genetics in that respect. So, mostly against bare skin which is why I went with horsehide. The bottom portion is against whatever underwear I chose that day.

    Hmm, actually I don’t usually wear underwear while living in these parts unless I choose dress slacks, which is seldom. Bare skin with an IWB is tolerable provided I have the right holster. In fact, I’m still waiting on a horsehide rig since I never tried one.
