    Most of my day is spent pocket carry, but all of my off work time is IWB.

    When I am out with the family, I am IWB with an occasional OWB (don't like OWB because I feel like the gun is too far out from the body).

    At work, I am pocket carry with my primary usually very close at hand.

    During the spring, fall and winter months I carry my 45 in a IWB holster and a SigTac jacket.

    In the summer I carry my 380 in a pocket holster and Thunderwear.

    Primarily IWB and ankle...OWB occasionally. I voted "more than one of the above."

    I carry primarily OWB in Spring, Summer and Fall because the holster is readily accessable.

    I pocket carry in Winter so I can move the holster from my pants pocket to my overcoat pocket when going outdoors. Too many layers required here in winter for OWB to be readily accessable in Winter.

    75% pocket; 25% IWB. I have tried ankle, but never felt comfortable with it.

    I carry OWB, but I use an IWB holster between my waistband and belt. It's more comfortable than IWB and with the belt through the clip, it holds my gun closer to my body then any OWB holster I've tried.

    OWB with either a Yaqui Slide or an SOB, but I just haven't bought a IWB holster yet.
    Whatever doesn't kill you postpones the inevitable.
