    It may take awhile carrying IWB at a certain position for the "Nerves" to become accustomed to the new pressure.I have a Spinal Cord Injury that over all below arm pit level can feel pressure,but there are a couple places I started carrying IWB at around 9 O'clock that my nerves were hyper active when the holster was putting pressure there,after a few weeks of wearing it on and off the nerves settled down and I carry from time I get up til bed time even tho It's mainly OWB nowadays

    I do carry in AIWB with several different holsters and it seem very comfortable, maybe some peoples build are just different. I am 5'10" 200lbs wear a size 36" waist, I just don't get it, so many people carry at the 3:30 position and like, could I be doing something wrong?
    Sounds like you answered your own question. If AIWB is more comfortable than thats how you should carry. Thats the only way I found comfortable and concealable, I love it.
    The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.

    I have been wearing my Glock 30sf in a Remora holster at the 3 o'clock spot. I even slept with it one night to see if it would shift, didn't move at all. I find it works better for me at 3, then 3:30 or 4:00.
    I was going to ask the same thing. 2:30 works best for me. Everybody's different but give just in front of your hip a shot (not literally). That's where the grip lies flattest against my flesh and is most comfortable. If I go 3:30-4:00 I print like a Hewlett-Packard.

    I'm a minimalist (to a certain point) and could never find a hybrid comfortable with all that leather attached.

    A purpose-built IWB or AIWB with the least bulk possible is the best way to go.

    The afore-mentioned Zack or ArchAngel holster from Dale Fricke are excellent pieces of carry gear.

    A short video describing the Max-Con can be seen here:

    Definately, positively, the best IWB I have ever tried. I carry it more than all my other holsters. Works great with 1911 which is flat and concealable to begin with. Using a good belt, I can wear it all day with total comfort. Runner-up for me is the Remora.
    You may be able to locate similar holster by other makers.....I just don't know about them.

    Same problem here. Went to 2:30-3:00 but I also adjust the cant even more than an FBI cant. Seemed to work for me. Also you may want to check out "American Holster Extreme Cant"

    I think a Kahr PM9 is comfortable just about anywhere. Pick a holster and wear it until you forget about it.

    If you're looking for a maker, I think TT Gunleather is at the top of the game right now.

Depending on the dress code required, I do avoid IWB if I can carry in a belt or shoulder holster. To me, strongside in a belt holster is the fastest to draw from and getting an initial proper firing grip. Also less chance of grabbing some shirt on the draw.
    Agreed ^^ I have no problem carrying my glock 39, 27 or kahr pm9/40 iwb at 330-4 o clock. It is just a personal preference but try pjholster.com if you like kydex! Best holster I've ever gotten and I own about 8 of them!

    +1 for TT Gunleather......I use his holsters for nearly all my carry pistols.....his slim IWB are Extremely Comfortable. I carry M&P Pro, Sig p229, Sig p239, & Kimber Pro Carry II HD all in his Slim IWB holsters and have another coming for my M&P9c.....wear all at 3-3:30 for 10-14 hrs a day, in and out of my truck, sometimes hours driving........can't beat them for comfort or quality. I use his OWB holsters in cooler months with vest, coat or pullover! TT Gunleather all the way!!
