    Normally I carry IWB in my custom minotaur holster, but I find that having to wear pants a size too large becomes uncomfortable should i decide not to carry. Since it's colder outside, I can get away with wearing a larger jacket and wearing my IDPA OWB rig, but while it's more comfortable, i'm always skeptical if i reach up for something or my jacket flies out i'll be exposed.

    Where do you guys carry?

    IWB 3-4 O'clock, only thing I've discovered (what i've been told all along) is I need to invest in a good gun belt

    I don't follow the advice of people that really do know better than me how I should carry. My number one carry method is Kel-Tec 9mm in an ankle holster, I know it is slow but it is better then the one I leave home because it won't conceal unless I dress to carry. Also I can reach it better while driving and can transfer it to my waist or pocket if I feel uncomfortable. Sometime I wear cargo pants with the deeper front pocket and carry a "J Frame" Smith without pocket holster which pretty much doubles the size, again counter to the advice of experts. I always make sure the gun is 100% and never carry anything else in that pocket.

    On the jackets, instead of wearing the cinched kind at the waste get the kind that hang down a little longer. That will help keep it from crawling up over the gun. I have several different styles of jackets and I save the cinched ones for wearing around the yard and the long one for public.

    I normally wear an IWB @ 3oclock. I may change it up for the jacket weather like I would in WA.

    For me it he most comfortable and easiest to draw when carrying a standard "compact" sized gun (P2000) is OWB at 3 o'clock. But of course that will only work under a jacket or such. I don't worry too much about showing under the jacket, as my holster has enough cant and rides medium high. Otherwise IWB, or pocket carry a J frame. I have a few other "tricks" I use at work.

    I have always carried IWB at 4:00. Works well with any of my pistols and conceals well even with just a t-shirt. It is a little discomforting wearing pants that are an inch or so too big but they fit right when carrying. That in itself is a good reason to never leave the house without a gun tucked into the IWB holster.

    I carry IWB 99% of the time. But now that it is jacket weather I carry OWB with jacket only covering it sometimes. Very comfortable!

    Behind the hip, strong side, IWB. Mostly Don Hume leather, although I occasionaly use a belly band rig when I have to wear dress clothes. A proper gun belt makes all the difference.

    I carry a 1911A clone, Yaquie style holster on the belt, 3 o'clock, two extra mags in a mag holster, under a large shirt with long tails, or a jacket. When the weather is really warm I'm usually in shorts, Smart Carry, or pocket carry. With the Smart Carry I can carry anything I want to. Pocket carry is usually a .38.

    I carry a Keltec P3AT or a Ruger LCP almost 24/7. I carry in my right front pocket.

    If I carry anything larger, I use a fanny pack. I never use a holster.
