    Time to chime in with what position you generally carry your sidearm. I personally carry OWB in the 2:30-3:00 range...usually in a high riding belt slide holster. You?

    Generally, back pocket carry for my P3AT. Although, for slacks, front pocket carry for the P3AT can work well. For larger guns (G19, 686), I like OWB or IWB on the right side at the maybe 4 o'clock position.

    I just got a Galco SOB holster for my S&W model 60. So far, that is my new favorite.

    P228 IWB in a Comp-Tac MTAC at 4:00. Hides real nice, even with just a t-shirt as cover.
