    3:00 right side carry
    9:00 left side carry
    3:30-5:00 is behind the point of the hip towards the small of the back on the right side.
    6:00 is small of the back

    Correct.

    If you think of your body as a clock 12 would your belly button and 6 would be your spine.

    Where you carry your gun would be proportionate to that.

    Your Navel is 12:00
    Right Hip is 3:00
    Spine is 6:00
    Left Hip is 9:00

    Hope that helps.

    Just think of your waist being a clock, 12:00 in front, 6:00 in the back. 3:00 is your right hip, 9:00 left hip.

    I carry @ 4:30 becasue 12:00 - 3:00 cuts into my hip and or I can't sit and move around with it there. Eveyone is diffrent so try the diffrent positions and see what works best for you.
    I believe in gun control...... Thats why I use TWO hands.

    Since the question has already been answered........ I saw the title of the thread, and the first answer that popped into my head (Aside from the one already given of course) was "Miller Time!!"
