Whats your favorite time? (what position do you carry your CCW rig on your waist)

yes, I was makking a stupid joke, no I dont want to hear some smartasses comment about what time of day you carry your gun. Just looking for basicly a pole of what position on your waist (relative to a clock) that you carry your concealed pistol!

i mostly use a camera case style fanny pack because i can carry all of my hanguns in the same bag, and because i havent found anything else even remotely comfortable when sitting. its usually at the 2 to 3 oclock position on my right hip.

Time.

My favorite time is breakfast
Sorry, couldn't resist

I carry IWB@1-2, depending on the gun.
Occasionally 11 crossdraw.
Back-up IWB@6.

Depends on which gun and what I'm wearing, but usually:

Bersa MiniFireStorm .45:
-OWB in El Paso pancake-style holster at 3:30.

EAA Windicatior .38spl 2" bbl.:
-OWB in Uncle Mike's pancake-style holster at 3:30 or 4:00
-IWB in Uncle Mike's Inside-the-Pants holster somewhere between 3:00 and 4:00 (which ever feels more comfortable at that particular moment).

Oh yeah, sorry (can't resist either ): whenever I'm not working my unarmed security job, whenever I'm not sleeping, and whenever/wherever I'm legally allowed to carry.
