    I don't, but you could do the "VA tuck".

    My primary weapon spends 99% of it's time in a IWB holster. Even when I OC I just tuck my shirt. Not a problem in VA.

    I do it every time I go to a restaurant.. I carry 100% of the time in a supertuck and just pop the shirt behind the grip if I decide to go eat..

    IMO the problem with IWB OC is there is no level 3 retention.

    I do it every now and then.

    If I'm going to OC I go with the Serpa holster. If I CC then I go OWB beltslide or IWB supertuck. I could see an issue with OC vs CC with a IWB holster in NC. A little too much discretion to give the LEO in determining which you are doing. I would rather go all or nothing.

    My weapon fits snugly in the holster, and with it pulled in close to the body, no one is going to simply grab it and draw it from the holster. They will be eating my elbow before they ever have a chance to get it out.

    Why level 3? Isn't that a bit much? Just a thumb break (Level I) would seem fine...if you like that kind of thing. Curious...

    Interesting. I may have to have a buddy try to remove mine when IWB/OC. My experience is that with the forward cant, it has to move in a very specific direction (up and forward) otherwise it gets bound up. It would seem that a natural motion to grab from behind will be up and back. I'm likely to get a wedgie.

    Rarely, but I have done it. No big deal.
