I primarily carry IWB and sometimes pocket if the need arises but always the same position and always the same pocket. I train so much I dont want to be fumbling around to find my gun if needed. So the position I train with is the position I always use
IWB & OWB, but pocket carry too for my little Kel-Tec. A shoulder rig in wintertime when the coat isn't coming off. Way too difficult and too slow to get to a waist holster with a car-coat or hip length coat worn.
Outside chest pocket carry is also an option on a couple of coats I have and have carried there in the past. Very fast to retrieve.
Depending on how I'm dressed, I carry IWB or OWB at about 3:30-4:00. Sometimes on a long trip or on my motorcycle, I'll use a shoulder holster. And in the summer, if I'm wearing cargo shorts and a T-shirt or tanktop, I'll pocket carry with a pocket holster. If I'm riding a bicycle, I'll carry in a Camelback, backpack, versipak, or sometimes a jersey back pocket. So, both the holster and the gun I carry varies depending upon the weather, how I'm dressed, and what I'm riding in or on and for how long/far. :yup:
I usually carry a primary and a backup, primary IWB 3:00, backup in the front right (strong) pocket. I started out trying to carry IWB at 4:00 - 5:00, I found that my cover garment would hang up on the grip every time I bent at all.
