    IWB carry when driving

    I've been trying to IWB carry my LCP in a Remora while driving. I have it at about 4:30, but find it fairly uncomfortable and always pull it out and put it back on when I get out.

    How do you folks manage?

    When around town, I just wear my regular holster, but for long trips my Glock-36 rides in this... FIST, INC.

    4:30 is not comfortable for me either. 3:00 works best for me. The IWB is a Remora holding my CZ82. Obviously different guns and holsters will determine what feels best for different people.

    Gunmate makes some very good nylon holsters, they are a lot more comfortable than any other holster. They aren't made to a specific gun so you have to make sure you get the right size. I have one for both my LCP and M&P.

    Pure Kustom Black Ops Pro at 4:00 for short trips. For long drives I go with a shooter holster.

    Raven concealment owb 2-3 always. When I use my remora I sometimes take it out for long drives. Or just pack a pocket pistol as well and use it for going in somewhere quickly and keep the m&p in the console.

    I cannot see how anything past 4 would be comfortable when sitting even.

    I have an right side IWB holster clipped inside my left front door map pocket. G19 goes in there just before I buckle-up, goes back to my waist IWB after I unbuckle but before I get out. I don't mind the required left-hand draw from the map pocket as I want my right hand free to start & drive my car if necessary. I like it MUCH better than wrestling with a seatbelt under heavy stress.

    Sold, I'm getting one for my G19.

    I carry my P238 at 4:30 in my CBMT which is quite comfortable for shorter trips. Glock 19 carried in Galco Royal Guard at 4:30 as well; not so comfortable. But I like it.

    I spend a great deal of time in my truck and I don't like sitting on my pistol, either. Carried at 3:00 works well for me, as does AIWB with my sub compact pistols.

    I can't seem to effectively wear my pistol iwb while driving. I find it fairly uncomfortable but more importantly I can not effectively grab it and draw. I have practiced and it just is too slow. I have decided to remove it when I get in the truck and set it inside my trucks console under the arm rest. it sits right down in there and I can reach it fast. Seems to be best for me. I carry my 686+ most times when in the truck.
    I have carried .380's and while comfortable the draw is still awkward.

    Yeah, that's the problem. I'll try sliding it forward to 3ish.

    This is a great point. Maybe I need to rethink keeping a pistol IWB and blocked by a seatbelt.

    I might try tucking the Remora between the driver seat and center console.

    For those who remove the holster when driving, do you squirm around in the car to put it back on, or do you get out of the car and reholster, accepting the increased likelihood of being spotted?
