Small of Back holsters suck. Mine almost got me killed when I fought a wanted parolee at large and he easily grabbed my gun from the holster. We fought over the gun and I managed somehow to keep him from killing me. Now he is doing 20 years in prison over the incident. Long story short! SOB holsters are strictly dangerous!!!

I personally don't agree with the small of the back carry. The reason being if your pushed on your back your going to get hurt. Nothing like a piece of steel hitting your tailbone.

SOB carry, as with many other things gun related, look really cool on Tee-Vee, but in real life, not so much. Sitting in a chair, very uncomfortable. Drawing while driving in a car doesn't work so well. In a fight, get knocked down, or fall on your back and you could wind up with severe spinal cord injury. Bend over to pick something up and everybody knows you are carrying.

Thanks for all the feed back guys! I have been carrying my XDM at about the 4-5 o'clock position with my crossbreed holster and it feels pretty good, I thought to myself that if I carried ISOB then it would be better but now reading your posts I think I thought wrong. I think I will keep carrying where I do and maybe get a size or two bigger pants...no more skinny jeans lol jk.

Prefer an SOB rig, but a torn rotator cuff says nothing further back than 4 o'clock these days
