    Question How do you Carry?

    Now we've all talked about carrying, but I haven't seen a poll about how we carry. I'm just curious how the percentages stack up, so I thought I'd ask.

    What is your primary carry method? If you are one of the members that carries more than one gun, or switches often, what is your preferred method? There have been a couple of recent threads with the open/concealed debate , so I won't get into that.

    If you want to voice why you carry this way (have to for work, most comfortable, etc), go for it.

    ---------

    Sorry, just realized too late I forgot the fanny pack. <sigh>

    poll does not allow for multiple choices so i did not vote , but normaly iwb and pocket , occationaly ankle or sholder depending on needs .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    I carry Smartcarry (voted thunderwear) 70% of time, and IWB the other 30%. Do rarely carry OWB but this shouldn't count as my primary means of carrying

    I checked the more than one above. I typically carry IWB (Behind the hip, but I've been trying appendix carry lately), & pocket. I carry ankle when carrying another gun, & I've used a fanny pack in the past, too. Problem with the fanny pack, for me, was too many people came up to me & asked if I was a Cop, even when I carried a "non-gun" looking fanny pack.

    Were in the lead.

    I don't think anybody has only one method of carrying all the time. I listed my primary which is OWB, but also use a bellyband,and pocket carry
