Do you carry and why?

I apologize if this has been done recently, I don't recall seeing it.

I'm left handed and carry at 9 o'clock, sometimes 8 o'clock. I tilt the holster forward a bit and surprisingly it conforms to me perfectly and stays tilted forward. Using this method I'm able to do pretty much anything and don't even notice I've got my gun on me. The only exception is pool - when I'm shooting pool I slide it up to 10 o'clock so it doesn't print or show.

I carry somewhere btwn 2:30 and 4, depending on which gun I'm carrying. The G19 is usually more towards the 2:30 end b/c it helps hide the large grip, but my SP101 rides nicely on top of my love handle at the 4 o'clock position.

I carry in the 3 oclock position with very little forward cant. I can't do the 4-5 oclock position due to a bulged disc in my lower back. I like the natural draw stroke that it provides.

Somewhere around 3-4.
(Yes, I am right-handed.)

I like to position it so the trigger guard is sitting right on the "point" of my hip-bone, in a holster with just a little cant to it.

I am a lefty as well. Usually have it somewhere in the 7:30-8:30 range. I cant put it at 9 as I am a small build and it digs into my hip bone.

I have tried my Glock 23 IWB at appendix, 3:00, and SOB. SOB is the only place I can carry comfortably. It seems that AIWB is difficult because of the size of the Glock 23, 3:00 is difficult due to love handles, and Small Of Back is perfect! SOB doesn't pull my pants down like 3:00 does and I conceal the best there. Anywhere between 3:00 and SOB just prints too much. The one thing that sucks about SOB is its more difficult to draw quickly.

I'm right handed and normally carry a Colt All American or Taurus snubbie IWB at about 3:30 or 4:00.

That and the fact that it is completely impossible to tell when your cover garment has gotten hung-up on the gun, which I found to be a very frequent occurrence with SOB carry.

G19 at ~8:30 for me, front clip of my MTAC right in front of my 9:00 belt loop. Pistol is canted forward quite a bit. Conceals perfectly under anything, even a T-shirt.

G27 between 3:00-4:00 IWB in a Remora holster. Extremely comfortable. Haven't experimented with my S&W 65-5 K-frame enough to decide yet on that one. As for my NAA mini master, pocket-o-clock.

3:00-3:30 OWB closer to 4:00 IWB.

Depending on the holster, inside vs. outside waistband and the pant being worn as the location of the belt loops come into play....anywhere between 3 and 4:30.

My G23 usually sits in a Blackhawk serpa OWB at 3 o'clock canted forward, When in the Galco Skyops IWB it is usually at 4 o'clock canted forward slightly. The G27 I only have a serpa OWB for so it sits at 3 o'clock only canted forward. :)

I'm right-handed and carry IWB with a Remora at 11 o'clock. The holster permits me to easily adjust for comfort. Sometimes I switch to strong side 3 o'clock carry but usually I stick to AIWB.

Taurus snubbie 2:30.

My G30SF generally pulls my pants down, though with suspenders it is fine - typically 3:30-4

OWB in 3-4 o'clock in pancake holster.
