    ...where do you put your holster? I just got a Tucker Cover Up IWB and plan on getting my CCW in a few months and I'm trying to get use to carrying my gun. I know it'g going to be different and based a lot on personal comfort but I just want to see where others carry and why?

    Usually in the small of my back if I'm wearing a loose shirt, or right in front if the shirt isn't as loose.
    My brother always kindly reminds me that I have a 155gr gold dot aimed roughly at my left ball, but hey, I try not to think of such things.

    Right on my right hip. Tuck in a white T-shirt ( keeps the handle from rubbing my side raw). And throw a loose shirt,sweater or whatever I feel like wearing over it. Works pretty good. But you have to have a holster that fits your body and your style of dressing.

    About 4 o'clock on my right hip, most comforatable place for me and easy access. I have no problems concealing a fullsize 1911 IWB or OWB at that position under a loose shirt.

    I carry on my right hip aswell, XD-40 in a comptac c-tac. Half your comfort issues will be from a poor belt. Get a good belt that will support the weapon (your pants arent supposed to be providing the support). Once you have good belt you will see that is usually comfortable to carry in a variety of positions.

    300-330ish. Depends on the pants....in this pic they don't fit well so 3oclock works best.

    G19, Milt Sparks Summer Special II, @ 3-4 o' clock, depending on the pants and belt loops.

    3 or 4 o'clock depending on the pistol and the clothing. If I am driving alot and not using my shoulder rig it's on the left hip so I can get to it quickly. (can't do that with small of the back and a seat belt on )

    Summer: S&W 637 .38 Special with Speer 135 gr +P Gold Dots in a Alessi Talon crossdraw.

    Winter: Glock 30 .45ACP with 230 gr Ranger +P in a Ken Null IWB crossdraw.

    Crossdraw is better in the car, plus my right elbow is screwed up and it's hard for me to reach around to my strong side.

    I used to carry crotch, wasn't comfortable and it dug into my gut bending over. Then I went to SOB, but kept printing when I would bend over. Hip is now my favorite way to carry.
