    Where to wear an IWB Holster

    Where does everybody wear their IWB holster? One that just clips over the belt with a single clip.

    Mine stays at 4 o'clock. I have found it to be the most comfortable position for me.

    About 4:30-5:00. Seems to be my sweet spot.

    Mostly tucked in my pants. I've found wearing it in a shirt-pocket, sock, or on a chain around my neck uncomfortable.

    Oh, you mean where on a belt... I'm right-handed, so also between 3 and 4 o'clock depending where my belt loops sit.

    Everywhere I go (rimshot ). Okay, for me, I usually wear about 9:00 (I'm a lefty) but the key is, wherever is comfortable and prints the least on you. I'm a bit overweight, I suspect the VM 2 will move rearward towards 8:00 if I lose the spare tire.

    3 to 3:30 for me works like a charm.

    This is opinion as I have no experience with IWB.

    Wear it where comfortable and it conceals well. If possible wear it close to your strong hand unless you are more comfortable with a cross draw.

    And wear it in a manner which conceals well.

    I wear at around 4:00. I've never tried appendix carry--too old and set in my ways.

    3:30 - 4:00 has worked best. 2:00 with the spare tire is uncomfortable!

    Generally, just behind the side of the hip. Better comfort, and the butt end of the gun rides closer to the body.

    If IWB with a single snap loop, it tends to be 7:30 (lefty). If a wider IWB holster with double snap loops, it tends to be 8:00 or 8:30. Allows the gun to ride more tightly against the body.

    If OWB (Fist #18 paddle, Galco Yaqui paddle, not a pancake), I tend to have it at 9 o'clock.
