I like it. He has good technique and I hadn't thought about that before.

I imagine its terribly uncomfortable to have his gun right there, especially while driving, but I can absolutely see the value of it.

This will not work for me. I can't carry where he suggests.

Me neither. Here we call it strong side/support side and train with both. Please don't carry a loaded firearm aimed at your balls. Practice support-side drills, learn the right way. Think about it. Your chances of getting into a lethal gunfight are pretty miniscule. Your chances of having your strong side immobilized in a gunfight are infinitesimal.

We would train to draw with our weak hand from our duty holster both standing and seated. It was not easy or fast, but once you mastered it you could do it without having to think about it.

Rog that. Practice strong side/support side drills but keep the holster where you normally wear it. Also, practice drawing and firing with either hand from a variety of positions, flat on your back, on your side, sitting in your car, etc. But this is for pros. Carry a loaded gun in your crotch is not for newbies or the average civilian gun owner.


CAR54, thanks for the PM and I've replied.

Appendix In Waist Band (AIWB) is a viable form of carry and has become very popular as of the last several years in the training community. Benefits include (some believe) quicker draw, easier to conceal, easier access with reaction hand and easier access when seated in your car. Draw backs in my mind include I'm not a fan of the firearm pointing at my artery - no, it doesn't really point at the boys (the key is reholstering safely), I believe it is tougher for retention should I come in contact with the threat and I'm not a fan of in-waist band carry in general. That said, again it is a viable carry position. Find out what works for you, be safe, train hard and own it.
