    I got rid of all the extra junk I didn't actually need and now carry a thin front pocket wallet. Better for your back and safer way to carry it!

    I carry my real wallet in my weak side back pocket and an empty wallet in my strong side back pocket close to my firearm. The level of aggression and choice of weapon displayed be a would-be mugger determines which one comes out first.

    It's one of those "ok, ok, buddy, just take it easy while i slowly reach for my..." BANG BANG..,BANG (not to be too graphic)

    Weak side front pocket

    I didn't like the fact that if I had to produce ID for LEO, after telling him I was CCW as we are required, I would be reaching for pocket near my weapon. I carry at 4:00 strong side. I bought a small wallet with magnetic money clip built in, I can carry about 6 credit cards/ID.

    although I don't carry IWB often, front pocket (thin wallet) easy to do when you're broke!

    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

    I voted "Weak side rear pocket," but that is always where I have carried my wallet...don't know why, just always have.

    Front pockets, or cargo pockets, as I did long before I started carrying guns. I do sometimes carry a decoy wallet in a back pocket, but I generally keep my back (hip) pockets empty. I learned the hard way, as teenager, that wallets can migrate out of back pockets. I have found wallets that others have left in the cars I drive. I drive a police car at work, so I have given many rides, though at least two of the times I have found wallets in the patrol car, they had been left by people who were not prisoners.

    Ambidextrous. Handguns = right handed, rifles & shotguns = left, eat = left, mouse = right. So my strong side is my right for concealed carry and my wallet is in my front left pocket.

    Weak side rear (so if this is "hip" then deal accordingly!!) by the way it did not move.

    I’m a minimalist so I carry the thinnest wallet essential that’s typically used in Europe. Actually, you can find similar styles most anywhere or specialty luggage stores at the mall. Anyway, I carry it in my cargo pants pocket, buttoned/zipped shirt pocket or occasionally in my front pants pocket. I never carry in my rear pant pockets. Also, I usually carry my cash in a money clip that separate from the wallet itself. This method is something I learned after many years of international travels.

    In fact, I often use a waist style carrier, similar to the Bianchi gun rig. Again, these are very common with men in Europe because of the added security they provide for valuables. Now, I realize they aren’t all that fashionable here in the States, but still.

    When I started carrying IWB I had to get a new, thinner wallet. Only the most necessary items go in there instead of all the 'stuff' I had in my previous wallets.
