i totally agree.

when i used to carry i did so with my sigP220 in cooler weather and walther PPK in the heat. gave the walther to a friend of mine a while back. he was packing his 1911 around around and having a hard time with it in the summer. i gave him my ppk when i moved to the people's republic of wisconsin.

anyway if you have doubts get a gun that you dont doubt. train with whatever gun you get. gun safety doesnt happen overnite. it takes a while to make safety into a habit.

No ones mentioned this one... I carry middle of the back (small of the back) with the grip on the right side and at about 1-2 o-clock angle. Seemed less obtrusive to pull from your back than the hip.

Do you remove it when you drive?

Problem with the SOB location is you must sweep the gun 180º to come to the target.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I do not remove it while I drive.. It's actually quite comfortable I really don't notice it's there most of the time.

Having to pull and sweep out 180 degrees as you mentioned IS a drawback but a little practice at the range and in front of the mirror ( yea I do that "you talking to me stuff" ..... jk ) I can draw farely quick and get on target. But saying that, I still cannot pull as fast as I can from the hip.

On me, the SOB is less noticable.

Until such time as you bend over to pick something up, or reach up high, and your cover garment comes up over your gun, exposing it to God and everybody.

Or, you keep reaching behind you to make sure that your cover garment hasn't ridden up.

God forbid you ever need to defend against a grab while carrying SOB...

Same thing can happen with most any CC holster setup aside from a shoulder rig. Obviously you don't like the SOB setup. All I said is that it works for me.

Not true.
