    I think 12:00 is your belly button, and 6:00 is in between your butt cheeks.

    For a right-handed person...SOB (small of the back) would place my weapon at about 5-5:30... ...IWB (inside waist band)...strong side... would place a weapon at 3-4:00...

    Now if it's 5 p.m. or 5 a.m. depends upon how late you can stay up...just kidding, of course!

    Stay alert...stay safe!

    I'm left handed, but luckily also dislexic, so all this makes perfect sense to me.
