    Adjusting IWB while driving...

    I have a Glock 36 and I conceal it in a MTAC IWb holster at 5:30. However when I get into my car, it feels a little uncomfortable. Maybe it is something I should get used to?

    Do any of you adjust the holster before driving? I know it may sound absurd since the entire point is to conceal carry.

    I just got my CPL today and will make my WWW tomorrow evening.

    Every holster takes a little getting used to. It's good to shift it around a bit until you get it just right.

    Try carrying at 3:30 instead of 5:30. It is better to find a spot and leave it than always fooling with your carry rig.

    For me, 3:30 to 4 works just perfectly. I sit at work and driving is not a problem for me.

    I carry a Sig P220R IWB at 4:30 in a CB Supertuck. 4:30 is very comfortable (for me) even with this large framed gun. I would suggest trying a few different positions and find out which works best for you.

    Grats on the permit! I'm going to have to follow the crowd and say around 4 is your best bet.

    I really dislike IWB holsters. Mine stays in a drawer. I'd rather wear mine OWB and conceal with a larger shirt or jacket.

    What IWB holsters have you tried? I really like IWB and find it much easier to conceal than OWB without changing my normal wardrobe.

    As others have suggested, you might find that something around the 4 o'clock position should alleviate your discomfort while still providing access to it.

    I carry my XD9SC in that fashion and don't have to adjust it while getting into or driving the car.

    I cannot think of any way to make 0530 carry comfortable while driving.

    I carry IWB or OWB at the 3:30 - 4:00 with no problems. It all comes down to personal comfort though.

    Each holster is different. For me, using a VM-II with a 1911, all I need to do is use my thumb to gently press forward on the guns beaver tail to make a minor comfort adjustment once seated in my wrap-around bucket seats.

    The seat can make a difference, too... the bench seat in my truck is no problem, but when I drive my hunnee's car with bucket seats, I pull my pistol out of the MTAC...

    I wear my CZ P-01 in an MTAC at 3:30. I originally started wearing it at 5:00 but ran into the same problem you note while driving. Everyone has a different body type, but i find that if I let the holster hang a bit low when I drive that it is perfect.
