    How many CCer's have switched their wallet to the left side?
    I got tired of flashing my auto every time I wanted to pay for something.

    I've always carried my wallet in the left back pocket even though I'm right handed so no change for me!

    Not an issue for me. I've used a money clip for years and carry it in a front pocket.

    I have a slim wallet with a money clip attached. I also carry it in my front pocket (easy to get to, harder to pickpocket and does not mess with my back...)

    Not supposed to carry your wallet in the back pocket.Puts one hip up higher than the other,causing back trouble.Especially you guys who carry every card you have ever collected.
    Yeah you with the 3 inch thick wallet.
    I had a guy tell me his doctor told him to carry it in front.

    I carry a small wallet in my front left pocket

    My carry is at 3:30 IWB the wallet is at 5:30 never a problem for me. Sound like pants are to low or shirt is to short maybe.

    Been carrying over 15 years now. Never had a problem with it either.

    IWB, "gangsta style". Just kidding, I'm pretty slim so I have to carry around 1 o' clock plus unless I'm carrying something very small. I like mid-size compacts usually@a 4"barrel and I can't carry high during the summer. I like my grips to sit right above my belt, during the winter I can wear it@2:30/3 with a higher riding holster, but yeah, money clip, front pocket. But it's one of those double sided money clips and starting to dig into me as my cards approach the 3"mark. Looking to get one of those slim wallets with a money clip on one side.

    Never been a problem I carry in the same pocket as my wallet is in. I only have to remeber which wallet shaped thing to pull out. Makes the whole "Give me your money" thing so much simpler.

    Granted I don't carry some huge hog leg. But then again in the last 28 years I haven't needed a huge hog leg.

    I usually cover with a leather jacket and it "felt" like I was exposing the firearm when I pulled the wallet out of my right hip pocket.

    I've got one of the (ahem) "substantial" chained wallets.
    I don't carry "every" card I've ever gotten...I've tossed out three or four this decade alone!

    OK thanks. I just took a bunch of cards out of my wallet and it really helps. :)

    Just remember to put the dive card back in before going to the tropics on vacation - would suck to get there and not be able to rent gear :)

    I balance my big, fat wallet with a Kahr CW45 IWB so I'm "balanced".

    Yeah, probably best to switch your wallet to weak side if you can get used to it. I'm an old dog...to late for new tricks for me..:D
