    95% IWB.

    I like the fact that the pants hide the bottom end of the holster / gun.

    I carry in a Comp-Tac CTAC or MTAC - the MTAC is almost too comfortable.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    Same here, I just got a Don Hume IWB. Seems comfortable enough...needs broke in.

    OWB only for me. I don't like having to buy pants specifically for this purpose.
    I don't have that problem. I wear the same 34 waist wranglers weather i'm carrying or not.

    IWB = Easier to conceal
    OWB = More comfortable

    I mostly carry IWB, especially in the summer but OWB feels the best to me. I'm so confused!
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    Both IWB and OWB Each has it's time and place.
    We are an open carry state so both will work.
    OWB in a High Noon slide guard
    IWB in a VM II for the last three days( just got it) very comfortable
    I carry A H&K USPc .40
    6''3" and 230 I mostly wear jeans,cargo's,shorts and polo's

    I carry a full size 1911 IWB. I am 6' tall and 150 pounds and it works well for me. I use a Brommeland max-con IV for very long days and normally carry a blade-tec. I preffer the speed of kydex. I shoot the same rig in comp and have been very succesfull with it.

    I carry HK USPc with a IWB Crossbreed. 7 days a week. I"m 6'3" 275lbs.
    For me it works. Haven't tried any other brands or for that fact a OWB with any
    brand.
