I know this poll ran before but I think it was on the old site. I couldn't find it here. With more people it might be a little more meaningful now, as well.

I have used all but one, so unless one can punch more than one answer, the poll means little. Even 'most often' is meaningless, because I always carry two, usually three, and often four guns, not all in one location.

I carry only one gun and carry it IWB strong side most of the time. Not all of the time but most of the time.

For those wearing belt holster OWB (strong side) where do you all reside??? Right now it is almost possibel but today we broke 70 degrees and after a few hou sof running errand sfor the wife I was no longer smelling baby fresh, or ocean fresh, what ever teh hell the new scent is. What do you all do to prevent yourselves from getting ahem MUSTY.

I could see palces like PA and NY, and OH going this route as well as all the other cold States, but those of us where we bare more skin, Umm that ain't going to work.

I do shy away from traditionally blued guns for that reason. I prefer guns with one of the new coatings or stainless guns. In summer here (Phoenix) I will probably carry the stainless.

As you know Andy, I also live in Las Vegas and I find that wearing a t-shirt and either a short sleeve shirt unbuttoned with the shirt tail out or my Campco vest which is really very cool and it has 30 pockets for carrying other junk.
When it's really hot here I carry IWB and a large t shirt. I can carry my full size 1911 this way with complete concealment.
I have always said that it's not the gun you carry, it's the holster you carry it in that determines its concealibility.
I guess I'm just a cold blooded type, I'm still wearing my leather flight jacket. I'm not hot at all.
Like Bumper both of my carry guns have a corrosion proof finish, so that's not a worry for me.

Wow that Wine took its toll on my typing skills or rather lack there of. I apologize for that folks. Thanks for the feedback Gents. Bob, I am thinking I might need to take a peek at that vest. I usually wear a t-shirt with a untucked button down shirt over and iwb strong side (4-o-Clockish). Never really printed that I am aware of.

I place my holster IWB appendix, left side. I'm right handed and it is just a small cross-draw. But it is comfortable and easy to keep concealed.

Two rigs, one for work, and one for off duty. My go to work rig is my Galco paddle, which is comfortable and a quick on off for storage at the lockers. Here is a pic - I don't bother to conceal in uniform.;)


Just a day or two ago, I got a new IWB nylon rig from Orca, that seems to be working well for off duty CCW - I will post pics when they get developed from the cheap disposable camera....
