    11:00 carry, Anoyone else do this?

    I have been experimenting with different carry positions. My normal carry is IWB at about 3:00 to 3:30, but sometimes it still bulges more than I like. I have found that at 11:00 to 11:30 that gun disappears. It seems that this would be a better carry position when in a car since the seat belt may get in the way. I just have to be careful when sitting and standing up.

    It seems to be more comfortable, and I am not getting any pains like I do when I carry on the hip.

    I was just wondering if anyone else carries at 11:00, and if there any reason this would not be a good carry position.

    Personally, I don't like guns pointed at my junk.



    I'm just kinda funny that way...

    My muzzle is pointed at my leg, not my "junk". If the trigger is covered with a good holster, where is the problem?

    Occasionally my Glock 17 in a Huntington "Wedge" holster made by Jerry at Haugen Handgun Leather. Not too often.

    No way......I have that tool shed to deal with and I don't want the muzzle pointed directly at my leg.

    If it's junk, why are you worried about it?

    I much prefer a carry position that places the barrel away from any body parts. To carry at 11:00 would place the barrel aiming straight at the femoral artery which isn't good IMO.

    You left handed or right handed? Occasionally, I'll do 1 o'clock appendix carry. I just don't see with what I carry how I'd hide a pistol grip at 11 o'clock.

    Alternatives are always good. Usually when someone posts about their favorite carry method, or new discovery, it's something that works rather well for them and has for a period of time. Others tend to not stray too far away from the sides of the 'box' once they're out so it's always good for them to ponder how others may never have been in the box to start with. I would toy with the idea of 11 o'clock carry as you've suggested......if only I had a straight drop or counter-car-jacking cant holster to test. Stand your ground on your carry methods and what works best for you even with hints of ridicule. I just hope nobody ever gets hurt doing something silly while in search of means for alternative carry.

    Due to a medical condition call "Frozen Shoulder" 1:00 is the only way I can carry. Not crazy about it pointing at the femoral artery either but it is a great place to carry since I am conditioned to go to the front with pocket carry also. Drawing from cover like pulling up a shirt seems to be much faster than at 3:00 to me.

    I personally (righthanded) prefer 3:00 or 5:00 depending on what I'm planning on doing during the day. My father (lefthanded) however, is most comfortable carrying at 11:00.

    I carry at 11:00 in a Smartcarry. It's lower, so no issues with the gun pointing at my femoral artery.
