I'll be 51 next month and I do all the computer and software repairs for my extended family. Some of us just didn't get as interested and involved in computers.
Nice photos, nice holster.

My regular work clothing is not practical OWB. So I carry my CZ-75 concealed in an IWB holster so I can tuk it all in.

IWB or OWB...either works for me, and both conceal well...both are tight to the body.
An IWB holster is easier to remove/put on...one clip and it's off, no need to 'sew' the belt through the holster.
Therefore, when I might have to remove the holster, I use IWB for sure, but either still works.

Highvoltage what holster is that you posted here in the above photo.?
Be 66 in December, and yes it's true, you do slow down a bit as the number goes up. However, it sure beats the alternative of stopping completely.

Have to do IWB because I have to tuck in my shirt and I don't wear a jacket. Too hot here in Houston TX in the summer for an over garment.
I use an OWB holster 95% of the time to carry a G23. It's hot this time of year in Arkansas so I either wear a T shirt or one of the button up shirts that's cut flat at the bottom and not meant to be tucked in anyway (don't know what they are called) and they seem a little cooler than a tucked in shirt too.
I buy the shirts one size bigger than normal and the Glock is completely invisible but the shirts aren't so over sized that they look out of place. A good belt and holster makes all the difference and the Beltman belt and TT gunleather holster do a fantastic job and I don't notice the gun is there anymore.

I made my first OWB holster for my XD9 (4 inch). Not perfect, but I was amazed at how much more comfortable it was than any of my IWB holsters. It's my new go to holster. I wore it all day Sunday - very comfy.

"People in Arizona carry guns," said a Chandler police spokesman. "You better be careful about who you are picking on."
I don't see how anyone can think IWB is more comfortable than OWB. And aside from hiding longer guns I don't see them much more better. Reallyn only difference in thickness is that of your pants.
