    Deep concealment shoulder holster five days a week for me (with a Sig P220 Compact SAS in it). On the weekend, I go for strong side OWB.

    YMMV, and I'm no expert, just know what I would do.
    Not trying to be smart but is this opinion based on shooting targets or force on force scenarios? FOF training has a way of showing you how dynamic movement is in any scenario and how taking a step backwards over a curb can put you on your back fast? You will not always be able to choose the position you draw from.

    I respect your opinion, but my answer is..
    No, I have not done a lot of FOF training. My humble opinion comes from the better part of a decade of "living" in country/biker/dive bars, a history which I'm neither proud nor ashamed of. I know how to "move", I know how to back/side step in real life and in life ending situations. My point was "if your back is against the wall, to the point you can't draw a firearm from 5 to 6 o'clock, you made your own bed.

    Again, I am not an expert.
    YMMV

    I understand, when I first started teaching I concentrated too much on my personal experience and what had worked for me. Lots of stuff I was able to pull off I put in the luck column. Now, after training hundreds of people I have seen thousands of scenarios with all types of people and there are some things that have have been and issue enough that I have based doctrine on it. The bottom line is that I cannot endorse the carrying of any SD tools, guns or knives behind the pocket seams. This area is reserved for support gear. I appreciate your candor and taking my post exactly as it was meant.- George
