It has been my understanding that the pictures show exactly the wrong way to utilize a SOB holster. It should have the grip facing the other way (just like a strong side holster, but with an almost horizontal cant) and you should be drawing with the palm in. With your set-up the chances are much higher that you will sweep your body on the draw because the gun has to come between your body and your arm to address a threat to your front. Palm-in draw allows the gun to arc outside both the draw arm and the body.
As to those that are not in favor of SOB holsters on the theory of the possibility of spinal injury in the event of a fall - the larger the waist line, the less likely the SOB holster will align with the spine. On me, it would be about a 4:30 or 5:00 o'clock position - off to one side of the spine. Who said there aren't advantages to being fat?

For those who think the holster is carried wrong i took this off the page from Galco telling how the holster should be carried.
Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.
