Ok guys as some of you know I am in the market for my first carry gun. I literally have looked at a ton of guns over the past week, somehow I have just totally not even thought about where I will carry. Where do you all carry? Not like where around town like where on you.

Before you buy a gun to carry make sure that there are good holster options for it. That is almost as important as how the gun feels on your hand.

I usually carry at 3 o'clock IWB, but I've been trying 5 o'clock. It feels alot better and conceals better too. I carry a G35 .40 cal.

marc29th you are correct on the holster if it don't fit your body you won't want to carry.

Front right pocket, daily outside of work. At work, one in car glovebox and one in right jacket pocket in locker.

Have tried belly bands, ankle holster, IWB, OWB, and pocket. Of them pocket was the only I could stand that want so absurdly uncomfortable and skin breaking.

Thanks a bunch everyone! The pocket holster would be ideal, I can see how IWB and 4 or 5 would be great to as it would be easier to conceal. Who would have ever thought needed bigger pants lol. Thinking of the IWB makes me really want to find something more narrow.
