    I do.

    It's called Appendix IWB. It is incredibly concealable, fast to get out, and very defendable in almost all situations.

    It takes some adjustment of where the holster sits.

    I tend to sit pretty well with it.

    I know the weather is closing in up North but down here if you see a guy with a fanny pack AND he has his wallet in his back pocket, he's packing! (And he probably has a gun in his fanny pack too!)

    Love the fall weather- and hoody sweatshirts- ones with the big pocket in the front. Summer, cargo shorts. Ones with the extra pockets. :rolleyes:

    For those of you who do carry in your waistband, you keep a round chambered as well, just the safety protecting you from an accidental discharge?

    It's just something I can't see myself doing. Carrying on the hip sure but I don't trust safeties on guns, I leave my glock without a round in the chamber even though I totally believe that unless the trigger is pulled the gun will not fire.

    I ask this because I am getting a 1911 any day now(soon as the feds finish the paperwork) and I'm curious as to how much faith others put in their weapons.

    Good post, Goju...

    A few years ago, I was at a grocery store getting a few items, when I looked down the aisle I noticed a man with a jacket on (it was a cool night) reaching for something on the top shelf. His reach caused his jacket to fall open exposing his handgun in a shoulder rig under his left arm.

    I wonder if the guy ever fixed the problem and has been able to hold on to his CWP?

    ANY time you see a guy with a fanny pack he needs "special attention" dose anyone still wear a fanny pack? I carry IWB aft the hip on my stong side. I expect I don't walk funny or print.

    Yup. Makes the little feller pay attention to what it's told! Actually, I do carry IWB @ 1:00. Thanks to Ford for putting reclining bucket seats in the 2009 F-150 XL.

    Mine's striker-fired with a backstrap safety, and I always carry with one in the tube. The backstrap safety was one of the major selling points for me when I bought it, as I recognized that I would have to be intentionally trying to fire the gun for it to go off. Not like an NFL star or "The only person qualified to handle....."

    Yes. IWB about 1 o'clock. Very concealable/comfortable with snubby revolver. My dad has carried like this for 25+ years. I always thought he was crazy til I bought a 38 and found it to be best CC spot for me.
    Damm! Dad was right again, just dont tell him I said so!:p

    Skinny guys such as myself have trouble hiding even smaller firearms, even my Bersa 380 prints so I carry in a waist pack, weak side over my front pocket. I see quite a number of other guys with waist packs here in S.W. Oregon. Now that it's winter time I sometimes carry strong side about 2 o'clock under a sweat jacket. If I had a Kahr I could probably hide it fairly good in an IWB. I have seen people carrying conceiled just by their mannerisms, this is good considering what I would want to do to keep from doing the same things and reveal my ccw. Another reason I carry in a waist pack is that my ccw is a large frame and is heavy.
