    If you ever find yourself in a physical altercation the appendix position (12:00-2:30ish) is both the easiest to draw from, and the easiest position to defend your gun from being taken away. You can also conceal a substantially larger gun this way.

    Highnoon makes some affordable quality holsters for AWIB.

    However, appendix carry is not beer-belly friendly. It's a good excuse to get in, or stay in shape.

    For those that carry AIWB, can you sit comfortably all day? I have tried it with a snubby and I can't find the right place. I'd love for it to work, but alas, it must not be a good fit for me.

    3 o'clock is the most comfortable for me.

    tet4 - It can be tricky finding the right set up for your body. I don't wear my AIWB as tightly as I did when I carried at 4:30. I want it to "float" a bit. When I sit I nudge it down into the crease of my leg, when I stand I tug my belt up a bit. Zero printing with a Glock 23 in t-shirt and jeans.

    The only time I ever experience any discomfort is when I tie my right shoe. And, I'm not often in public when that happens. Eventually I got so use to it I feel naked without it... almost like forgetting to wear my watch.

    It really depends on chosen attire and planned activity on a given day, but primary is usually @8:30 (yup another lefty).

    I shoot with both hands equally. My BUG is small of the back (6:00?) set for righty.

    Post # 28 shows a S&W Model 36 in a High Noon Public Secret holster.

    Below is a Glock 23 in a High Noon Public Secret.

    Both are equally comfortable for me and as GlockZombie said it does not work well with a beer belly.

    For me it is the absolute best posistion to conceal or defend your weapon from.

    Huh, never thought about that!

    I'm going to give it another try.

    AIWB, I can tote a full-sized pistol all day long without anyone being the wiser - I'd love to be able to do that.

    Thanks for the tip!

    About 3:30 , because most of the training I've gotten was with the gun being about 3:00. 3:30 is close enough to what I'm used to and still conceals well.

    I carry at 4 to 430 and find it very easy to draw from. It is a P99AS 40 CAL

    I am right handed and holster for the crossdraw. For excellent concealment I carry at 9:00. When seated or in a vehicle I bring the holster to the 10:30 to 11:00 position. I am 6' 2" and 223 Lbs. and fortunetly my weight is well distributed. The crossdraw does not work well if the belly overflows the belt. I am a big fan of the crossdraw. I find that it provides perfect accesibility in all situations and never causes the firearm to press the body. I have won a few people to this method of carry. If you are in the drivers position in a vehicle the lap belt fits snuggly under the holster and tightens down perfectly to your right side in the latch. The shoulder portion does not interfere in the slightest.
    Having a gun that can easily be drawn in any position sitting or standing really enhances the concealed carry experience for me. I will add just one thing, and that is this: If a person makes the decision to carry in the crossdraw then I strongly suggest that they invest in a quality crossdraw holster. I highly recommend Kirkpatrick Leather of Laredo, Texas. Just type that into your favorite search engine.
