My primary carry is usually frontal groin with a an untucked shirt (and my gut) hiding the weapon handle. I prefer strong side rear hip carry but it usually prints too much in the summer.

I have also carried in a pocket holster in the pocket, but it always seems unsafe and too slow.
I have never tried ankle carry, but it too looks slow and unsafe.

How do you normally carry concealed?

My P239 has a very slim, short grip, so when I wear it in a IWB Right rear hip, with a loose shirt, it only prints if I bend over. Not really worried about it, could be a cellphone as far as observers are concerned, or insulin pump or anything. It's not like I'm brandishing or wearing open carry in public. With my P220, I can do the same, but have to wear a very loose shirt untucked, so I usually wear that one with a jacket in a horizontal jackass rig. Same for my full size USP.

Tagged for ideas, just in case my state gets it's head out of it's ass and allows concealed carry.

Mostly, IWB on the strong side at 3:00. Regards, Richard:D

We have a goofy law in Georgia that you can't carry your concealed on you ankle or anywhere below your waist.

Gotta love the lawmakers and their foolishness.

Primarily 5:00 SS, but it depends on what I'm carrying.

M1991A1 and HK USP45 as above, sometimes S.O.B.

Para C.6 and Makarov both go front groin 1:00 SS.

Gimme a BREAK!

I carry ankle a couple times per week in certain situations. I use the Fobus thing for my G27. I love it. It's a bit slow like a shoulder rig, but not at all unsafe. I've run the bases at a family softball game with it on.

Having grown up in Canada, and then spent time in the PRK, this is my first time in a Shall-Issue state. I am still getting used to carrying concealed.
I am trying strong side rear hip, but am always concerned I am showing. I was told to wear frontal groin in crowd situations for more control, but heck if I know if that is correct and I figure the cross draw is more difficult with the shirt in the way. I carry 1911 (Kimber Pro CDP) or Hi Power. Anyone have any advice?

That is a bizarre rule. I suppose a thigh holster would be illegal too.

Anyone use a fanny pack?

I think they are so out of fashion right now that they just scream "gun" if you see a black one.

I agree.

However, I think when top-hats make a come back, that's where all handguns, and some carbines should be carried.

Pocket holster during work days. Strong-side belt holster on weekends.

The lack of 'sence of humor' almost amazes me.

fullsize 1911, cocked and locked, on the strong side hip with no holster. It stays put all day and I can carry with shorts and a t-shirt no problem.

around 4:00 IWB.

Strong side hip at 3:00 with a forward cant. I can sit and this way doesn't bother me.
