Right handed, IWB, 4:00 o'clock.

Have also been playing around with a left hand OWB at 8:00 o'clock instead of spare magazines.

I'd say I prefer 3:30 to 4:00. Usually Milt Sparks Mirage, but sometimes fobus or others.

I carry my Glock 26 IWB at 3:00 - 3:30 without a holster (I usually wear a belt to keep it tight).

If also have an Uncle Mike's Kydex Holster for the Glock whick I wear at 3:00 as well.

I think coming straight up out of the holster without having to swivel the gun allows for quicker target acquisition and you end up pointing the gun at less bystanders. It is also harder for someone to prevent you from drawing as opposed to shoulder holsters and SOB holsters. SOB holsters are uncomfortable as heck when yo have to sit. Just my $.02 worth.

right handed.

Regular everyday wear, 12:30 (Thunderwear)
Long trips in car, reg in the waist holster 4:00. moves to 1:00 for better concealment
when leaving car
Open carry at home 9:00 cross draw. Its a stretch but I find it most comfortable

OK, mine's changed. I still use the Small of Back Galco holster, but I brought it around to about 2-3:00. It cants VERY far forward, but conceals very, very well next to my overabundant midsection. With the extreme angle of the holster, the end of the grips point about straight up, leaving nothing to poke through even a T-shirt. Drawing difficulty at that angle is no worse than reaching behind my back as before. This could work.

Normally three o'clock but maybe a little more forward depending on the situation.

I have carried mine in the SOB at 6:00 everywhere. It only gets uncomfortable if im sitting or riding in the same position for over like 2 hours.

Lefty

I carry my Sidekick holster at about 1030. Of course, I can't carry in public, so this is just for range practice & dryfiring at home.

I'd be interested to hear some of the reasoning behind people's decision on this point. I'm a lefty & I like having my weapon both easy to reach & easy to protect/retain. Also, I have only one gun, a revolver, & the strap keeps the hammer safe, so I'm not worried about misfiring to disastrous consequences.
