Where on your body do you have your CCW? Just wondering what other people do.

99.9% of the time fanny pack. The other .1% depends on the situation.

Strong side either OWB in a comptac paddle or IWB, depending on the weather. Gun carried is glock 22

you left out one of the most popular carry locations .. 90 percent of the time, especially in the summer, my gun is in my right front pocket ...

Day planner/CD holder/camera case-type holster on my belt or a paddle holster on the strong-side kidney area. Carry pieces are a Keltec PF9 and a Steyr S9.

I carry in an outside jacket pocket in the winter months. I use a fanny pack in the heat of the summer. A Kel-Tec in my jeans pocket. Sometimes IWB. I have lots of guns and lots of different clothes.

I usually carry OWB at between 2 o'clock and 2:30 but sometimes carry in a shoulder holster too. I have also been known to carry a Seecamp in a rear pocket wallet holster.

I carry IWB or OWB between 2 & 5 depending on what I'm carrying.

seriously, strong side hip or pocket holster depending on attire/weather.

I carry mine IWB on my right hip, grip facing forwards, sort of in a cross-draw but on my strong side. I find its more comfortable, easier to conceal, and doesn't slow me down much in the draw. Plus, it is easier to pull with my left hand, should I ever need to.

Also IWB right side in a Wild Bill No Such Agency holster.

The 1911? Milt Sparks custom-fit leather IWB, kydex tuckable clips, strong side. The P-3AT? Anywhere it'll fit!

Full size 1911, strong side, Galco Concealable Belt Holster (http://www.usgalco.com/HolsterPG3.asp?ProductID=209&GunID=28).

Just like Gunsite taught me.

IWB for primary gun and weakside pocket or ankle for BUG.

June 12, 2008, 08:14 PM
On my belt,right hand to left pull (crossdraw) is easier for me,to both pull if needs be and to conceal easier.

June 13, 2008, 03:46 AM
My EDC gun my GLOCK 21 SF or STI TACTICAL on my right hip and my BUG a GLOCK 30 on my Alessi ankle holster.

June 13, 2008, 07:14 AM
GLOCk 23 or 27. I carry strong side in a Don Hume JIT slide or cross draw with a Don Hume IWB.

Well, like all good boy scouts, I carry an Uzi in one of those shoot through holsters Chuck Norris had, a pair of ivory handled 1911s in a New York Reload rig at the small of my back, an M-29 in shoulder leather on the off side, a Chief's Special in an ankle holster to augment my fanny pack full of Glock 26s, a Cold Steel folder for light cutting work and to back up my K-Bar, and 2 Bond arms Texas Defenders; one up each sleeve. I back this up with a .22 zip-gun stuffed up my fundament for deep cover work:eek:

This last one impedes movement more so than all the others combined, but gives me the warm fuzzy feeling of being well armed within, as well as without!

June 18, 2008, 09:15 AM
Actually, I just tuck a K-38 behind my strong side hip and call it good.

June 19, 2008, 11:32 PM
I would probably carry on my belt....in any location where i can draw and fire in the least amount of time

Wanna OWB during the summer? I've got an idea. Get a light warm up jacket, vest, or light windbreaker, like these:


You know the usual, get dark collars or patterns, and go up a size.

Carry at 4 or 8 o'clock. If you want to carry at the front, partial zip up front to tie it down. If you need to weight it down, put your keys or cellphone in the front pocket.

"Why are you wearing that?" they ask? "Hey, it's summer, it might rain."

Or, if you're husky like me "I was told that if you stay warm, it helps you lose weight." Which is true, as told to me by a fitness guru. :)

What do you all think?

What do you all think?

This is the South, it was 98 today. I ain't wearing a jacket of ANY type. :eek:

I've adopted a lot of golf/polo shirts and some block-bottom button-ups when I can find them.

Soon we will have open carry in Texas, and all this will be irrelavant!

July 23, 2008, 07:26 PM
You guess. ;)
