I'm the odd man out again, 1100-1200, fastened (sp?) in a holster, and bandit style - as opposed to attached to the britches/belt. For me, it's the most comfortable, and hides the best.
FLAMES: I know it won't allow a quick draw - but it is always on me, and I can shift it for comfort.
What is "bandit style"? I'm picturing a lasso or something. Maybe some conchos...but with no belt? Or does it attach to your drawers?
IWB Strong side R 3:30 - 4:00 position
iwb at 3:00 canted forwward has been the most comfortable so far.
I carry my G26 in a Fist K4A holster at about 8 o'clock (I shoot left-handed). The Fist holster is adjustable for cant and I have it set at about 5˚ forward cant. I’d have more cant, but if I do the J-hook presses on the magazine release and drops my magazine (one of the disadvantages of shooting lefty.)

I wear mine at 3:00 and cover a full size m&p40 easily. If you wear against the skin you can put a layer of mole skin on back to soften feel.

Been experimenting with my cz75. So far the most comfortable and most well hidden is between 9:00 and 10:00 (left handed) With about a 15-20 degree cant. Problem is that the thumb break prints more than the gun itself though.
Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.
