    Although I do a lot of things right handed, I'm a natural lefty. For most of my life I carried a wallet in my left back pocket but now mostly in the right. The reason I changed was that I realized that I could tell a lot easier if the wallet was removed and still can. More sensitive than the left "cheek"!

    Right handed: left rear pocket for wallet, left front for cell phone, right front keys, and right rear nothing, was for wallet until I started carrying, so now I offset gun a little bit.

    My usual dress is cargo type pants and my wallet goes in the left thigh pocket. When I need to dress up a bit it goes in my left rear pocket.

    Right handed, left front pocket. I used to carry my wallet in my back pocket until my chiropractor advised against it. No back problems since!

    I changed from right front pocket because I might get made getting my wallet as I carry at the 4:00 position.

    Same here...don't know why I chose this, but it certainly makes sense now with IWB strong-side carry.

    Right handed, wallet in left side cargo. Almost all my pants and shorts are cargo's. If I don't have cargo pockets, I do either the left front or rear pocket.

    If I need to do the "I'll give you my wallet, just don't hurt me" trick, they can see me pulling my wallet out as my body is turned so I can draw my gun.

    Right handed, and right FRONT pocket! That way I always feel it there, and I think it discourages pickpockets. Besides, they would have to get past my IWB right above the front pocket!

    Right handed - Left rear pocket...and & can tell the majority of responders why they wallet-carry the same way! The move to pull your wallet from your left rear pocket requires less dexterity (left hand) than does the opening & selection of its contents. You save your most dexterous (right) hand for the "finger work" of; pulling out your intended Debit Card/Drivers License/CCW Permit/etc., shuffling through currency denominations, or pointing-out pictures of your Grandkids to mouthy friends who have ugly ones. It's just natural not to add the extra motion of shifting the holding of the open wallet from right-to-left hand to accomplish those tasks. Mystery Solved!

    I am right handed and carry in left pocket so that I do not expose my pistol when at the store.
