Re: Spin-off Thread - Why do you carry what you carry?
When I first started carrying, I carried a wide range of guns, in a wide range of carrying styles, trying to determine what worked. For years it was a stainless PPK 380 IWB behind my right hip - both holstered and Mexican carry. 1911 45 in a shoulder rig, in the winter. Made some discoveries. Wore the shoulder rig out to dinner one night, and had to sit there in a puddle of sweat, as the restaurant was heated to 70, and my coat was right for 30. Couldn't take the coat off - was wearing a gun. I've bent over and had my shirt ride up and expose the IWB. Time or three, I walked out of the house with my gun sitting on the counter - just forgot to pick it up.
But I discovered that, no matter how hot it was, I always left my pants on. So now I have a 2" J frame 38 in a pocket holster, that lives in my pocket. I don't have to think about picking up my gun - I get up, put my pants on and I'm wearing my gun. I put on clean pants and stand there with the dirty ones in my hands transferring stuff. Wallet, keys, knife, money, belt, gun. I still, occasionally, leave the house with my cell phone sitting on the counter hooked up to the charger, but I've always got my gun.
