I would have gone with OWB and Shoulder.
A well adjusted shoulder rig can be easily concealed and carry plenty of spare ammo to boot.

IWB 80%, OWB 20%. Weak side pocket 75%. OWB bumps on arm rest more than IWB does for me.

OWB, although I shoulder carry a lot in the winter.
OWB most of the time, but also IWB for circumstances where concealment is more difficult.
Mainly IWB appendix unless I'm wearing a loose fit Hawaiian style shirt. In terms of comfort I prefer my OWB much better. You will end up with both anyway along with something else, and then something else, etc.

IWB cause I started that way and have stayed with it. Since my lose of 100 pounds the padding is gone and I may have to look at OWB. I can get the gun/holster in the 38 inch pants that fit but I feel the gun poking me in the ribs and side more now than 100 pounds ago.
OWB is obviously more comfortable, but harder to conceal; IWB is easier to conceal, but more uncomfortable; Pocket carry is easy to conceal and comfortable, but harder to draw than the other common methods; Ankle carry IMHO should be just for a BUG and Shoulder carry is comfortable and easy to draw, but hard to conceal as well as a pain in hot weather.
I think that all carry methods have their pros and cons, but I prefer IWB at 4 o'clock since it is easier to conceal and it works for me. As long as whatever carry method you choose works for you...more power to you!

I carry in a shoulder rig whenever possible. I carry a full size firearm with a double stack magazine and I find it the easiest and most comfortable way to carry with extra magazines due to the weight on a gun belt. Fall back is OWB at 4:30, in the summer I wear a lot of Hawaiian shirts for concealment. I am looking at adding a smaller weapon for carry, that may change my inclinations as to carry style.
I'd rather be lucky than good any day
There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
I PREFER owb, but am forced to carry IWB a lot of the time for work. Eh. Either way, I'm just glad to have it on me ;)
