    How do you carry (majority)? IWB or OWB (Belt Holster)

    How do you comfortably carry IWB? Bigger Pants? Lose Weight?

    I have always carried via Desantis Speed Scabbards for all my guns since first getting my CCP. I tried IWB in the shop and found it very uncomfortable from day one.

    I have scabbards for my Walther P990, H&K USP COMPACT & my new Custom Defender.

    Am I missing out? Seems like most forum members carry IWB.

    So I figured lets ask via POLL?

    Vote based on Majority of Carry Time.

    Well, I voted 'other'. Reason being that I carry any way I want to at the right time. IWB, or OWB for me, and both. Majority of my carry would be IWB actually.

    IWB 90% of the time, on a long road trip then it's the shoulder holster.

    I carry IWB always to conceal. I carry a Comp-tac C-tac and find it very comfortable. But I am only 150#, so there are no love handles to get in the way.

    IWB most of the time...usually tucked behind my strong side kidney with a palm out draw.

    Larger pants help but I found my regular size pants stretched just enough. T-shirt/undershirt for extra comfort also helps. I mostly carry IWB but I also do carry OWB at work since it is hot and humid. I don't have to conceal at work so OWB is more comfortable usually. I alternate carry with an XD45acp and my Springfield 1911. The 1911 is almost always carried OWB.

    It takes time to adjust to IWB carry but with a good holster and a good belt it becomes really comfortable considering.
    I am consistently on record and will continue to be on record as opposing concealed carry.

    I couldn't put it any better, Ram Rod.
    Since summer began, I have opted more for OWB. I carry my 1911 Govt. in one of Rocky's Black Ops holsters. I can go IWB or OWB with it at any time.

    IWB in Crossbreed Supertuck most of the time, but pocket carry is gaining my interest.

    IWB.

    For every four IWB Holsters I have, I have one OWB. That could be seen as a clue. Heck, I don't even own an OWB Holster for some guns I have.
