    IWB almost all the time with either a Shield 9mm or Glock 19. If I have to dress up, which I almost never do, i pocket carry the shield in a Alabama holster.

    ...yeah...I think I'm a convert to this school of thought. Eventually, I'll need to figure out how to wear a tucked shirt with a full size gun (without a jacket)...but I'm not worried about it at the moment. I'm pretty sure that with the right holster, I could use something G19 sized as a deep concealment gun at this point.

    Don't hardly carry concealed at all any more, but I usually carried IWB about 90%. The rest was OWB. I carried my J frame S&W every day for about 6 years. Very often in an uncle Mikes sleeve in the small of my back or a Fobus paddle holster.

    It's rare I ever have to tuck in a shirt, but when I do I go with my NPE, Minimalist Rig.

    EDC it's this for a G23 or P229, AIWB.

    Generally, AIWB with an XDS or XDM. Occaisionally AIWB with a Bodyguard 380, or strongside IWB or OWB. Preferred holster manufacturer is Crossbreed, which is just down the road from Spring-patch in Nixa.

    AIWB a Shield 90% of the time. Easier to conceal, and less stressful (IWB makes me paranoid my shirt will ride up). Also safer/easier to take on/off when I must needs go into a place I cannot carry--PJ holster comes off/goes on easily while seated in the car.

    Pocket 90% of the time, iwb 10%. I try to focus on carrying when I can (I live in VA, work in D.C.) and my .380 is more convenient. On a longer trip to a more unknown place I iwb my g17.
