For the past several years I've always carried IWB concealed. Only times that I open carry is when I'm teaching a class or at the range, even then I'm still wearing my IWB rig. Was at the range yesterday with a friend who was OWBing a 9mm 1911. Couldn't ever tell he was... Anyway I found out he was using a Vedder OWB paddle and really had a nice slim profile... So... $59.00 plus shipping and tax later, I have one on the way....
