    Question IWB: Where do you wear yours?

    My primary weapon is a Springfield Ultra Compact 1911. I have a small of the back right handed draw IWB holster with thumb break, but I don't feel that I would be able to draw it quickly if I needed to. Also everytime I bend over or sit down and stand back up I have to make sure my shirt is pulled down over the holster. So I ordered a regular (Fist) IWB with a J hook. I would love to carry it in the front of my pants (easy for quick access) but I can't sit down or bend over with it in the front of my pants.

    Where do you carry yours to maximze comfort and accessability?

    I carry mine just behind my strong side hip (3:30 position). I find this the most comfortable for me and still easily accessible.

    Right about 3-3:30. The front edge of the holster is right on the seam of my pants.

    Same for me, right about 3:30 maybe 3:45 strong side.
    Small of the back can also cause you injury, as the gun is against your spine, fall down, and you could have problem.

    3:30 strong side.
    There are over 550 million firearms in worldwide circulation. That's one firearm for every twelve people on the planet. The only question is: How do we arm the other 11? (Yuri Orlov [Nicolas Cage] Lord of War)

    Depends on the gun but 1, 3 and 4 is most likely.

    Strong side, just behind my hip bone. I guess that would be considered around 3:30 or 4:00. I carry in the same place IWB and OWB.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!
