    Gun in front, about 1 o'clock or so.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    1. Crossdraw @ 1030-1100

    2. OWB Strong-side

    3. IWB Strong-side

    Just my opinion...
    That which does not kill us leaves us broken and bleeding...

    Donít mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

    +1 Thumper. I just read an article in a gun magazine that talked about this very thing. It was agreed, in general, the quickest draw was from the strong side OWB hip position. Crossdraw followed closely. The shooting hand has the least amount of distance to move before getting to the weapon. Due to my girth, crossdraw is not a good option, so I carry in the first position at 9 o'clock (I'm a lefty). I practice clearing and drawing both one-handed and two-handed. If you can draw and fire (accurately) in under 2 seconds, you're doing good.

    I can do it in 2 seconds, but not under 2 seconds.
    Crossdraw, right handed, in front at 3 o'clock.

    That seems to me to be the easiest to access, too, other than maybe a shoulder rig. It's actually the position I was thinking of using.

    Thanks to everyone for the input. Looks like I'm going to have to do a little experimenting before reaching a final decision...

    You ought to watch this video from USCCA. It is what got me interested in carrying in the appendix position.

    The fastest I have found for me is in my pocket when standing. Fobus paddle did not work for me either as it was hard to get out of holster. I wear t-shirts and jeans 99 percent of the time and the only other method that seems ideal would be a belly band but seems to be complaints of having to constantly readjust. I have used a shoulder holster and it works well until you have to take your jacket off inside.
    I am having the same problem trying to find the best way to carry a Glock 27

    I usually wear jeans, and pocket carry was just too difficult to access.

    After trying things out for a few days, I've ended up settling on just behind the right hip - about 4:00. Appendix just didn't work well when seated. It's pretty comfortable where it is, and still rather easy to access.
