Default Best conceal carry location

In your opinion where on the body is the best location to carry for protection purposes?

Default Best Consealed location?

Hello Drak/All



RON L here = SERESURPLUS


I'm Like a few others here, "OLD SCHOOL" most of the year, I go carry strong side with a leather side holster and a cocked and locked BHP or 1911A1! In extreme heat waves, I drop down to a PA-63, with Hollow Points and carry strong side or small of the back, even in shorts, only 1 spare mag!

I find that the cross-draw and a shoulder-rig works best for me...It's comfortable in a vehicle and when on my feet for a time...I do too much reaching on my strong-side that might invite a peek at my hardware..

I suggest and teach to carry on your strong side between 12 O'clock and 6 O'clock.

No matter WHERE you decide to carry your weapon, it is vital that you train consistantly from that position. Almost invariably, under stress, a shooter will react (good or bad) exactly as he/she has trained.

I carry a Springfield Armory 1911 EMP "Cocked and Locked" on my strong side (3 O'Clock) in a Don Hume I.W.B. Concealment Holster, with two spare magazines in my weakside rear pocket loaded with Winchester Ranger SXT ammo, a SureFire Lumamax L1 Flashlight in my weakside front pocket, a Cold Steel Recon 1 - Spear Point Fighting Folder in my strong side front pocket and a head full of knowledge backed with a good combat mindset!

Default This sounds silly!!!

Well I don't know if I can top what our protector of Freedom, Chris said, but I carry mine in the small of my back. It takes a little getting used to, but as Chris said you need to practice. I would choose the position that is most comfortable to you. And try many different ones. Not everyone has the same draw or shooting style. Hope this helps.

I find that 3:30-4:00 strong side works best for me. Depending on what I'm carrying it's in a Fobus OWB paddle holser or a Kholster IWB.

IWB, 1 o'clock in an Uncle Mike's soft-side clip-on. You just can't get it to print, and it's the quickest draw you can set up.
