    I don't carry AIWB simply because I don't like it. But then I hardly ever carry a striker fired pistol any more, actually at the moment I only still have two of them in the safe and I'm probably going to sell one of them.

    As long as the trigger guard is covered and you pay attention when reholstering the gun ain't going off on its own. I carry my Walther P99c QA preset striker fired pistol AIWB in a kydex holster every waking moment with complete confidence.

    I carry a Kahr CM9 AIWB in a kydex holster. In the morning I will usually put it in the holster prior to placing it on my belt.
    In addition the Kahrs have a long trigger pull which is a little more forgiving. When looking at a new pistol it came down to a Glock 27, M&P40C and a SigP250C. The Sig was midway between the two in price, came with nightsights and a rail laser/light attachment. I am already used to a long smooth trigger pull so the P250's did not bother me plus I like the additional safety of thumb-over-the-hammer when reholstering. I understand that these guns only fire if the trigger is pulled however I also know I am not a flawless person. Comfortable carrying it in a Vedder Light Tuck holster.

    I have been carrying AIWB before it was cool. For going on 20 years.

    Glock 27 from 1996 to 2007
    Glock 17 from 2007 to 2014
    Glock 26 from 2014 to date

    All AIWB in Galco Stow and Go's

    Never an issue.

    Not a fan of striker fired pistols, but I have carried my wife's Mod.2 in her InCog without a problem. The gun won't go bang without the trigger being pulled. There are ways to posture while reholstering and trying to reholster quickly with any IWB asking for an accident anyhow. When it's time to reholster the threat should be neutralized, so take your time and ensure your holster is clear.

    I carry 1911's almost exclusively AIWB when I bother to conceal. I think I have a permanent indent in my gut from the beavertails.

    I carry AIWB, but prefer hammered fired guns so that I can put my thumb on the hammer when holstering.

    What I like about my P99c is that I can put my thumb on the rear plate of the slide and feel the end of the firing pin/cocking indicator. If the trigger is pulled I can see and feel the indicator begin to protrude. Same is true for the PPS as well.

    Huh???

    Carry a G19 in a Raven Eidilion or a VP9 in a JMCK rig. Never had an issue. I would not recommend that carry mode for firearm novices for sure, but there are some techniques that can minimize any risks of an ND poking a hole in your Femoral. Also would NOT recommend the carry mode to folks who won't train with it.

    Agreed. There are holsters that cant the barrel away from you. There's a video of a guy using simunition with a cut away kydex that shows that a proper carry position will cause the round to not hit you with an ND. You'll get some flash burn on your man bits for sure, but shooting yourself would almost require you to be intentional.

    Every day.
