    For comfort with a large gun OWB.
    To conceal a large gun IWB.
    Now most of the time a 2" 38 in pocket in a pocket holster

    Never heard of that holster.

    'Mexican' carry is just slipping it inside your waistband like our social deviates do,closest thing to a holster might be a string loop off the belt to keep it from sliding down your leg.Wasn't sure if you knew that.

    OWB only. The only time I will pocket carry is if I am wearing a pair of wind breaker pants and even then i don't care for it. IWB is just so uncomfortable I would rather go without.

    I carry using both IWB and OWB, depending on how I am dressed. OWB in more comfortable but with the proper holster, I find that IWB is comfortable enough for all day carry.

    Primarily IWB. I have a Galco and a Kholster. For OWB I like my Desantis.

    As a 42 yr LEO-I did it all-inside/outside/UC/front pocket. In Al-never questioned about any gun anywhere(eat your heart out Obama-Lovers). As LEO too many scenarios to describe. I am 6'/300#+ and can hide a 1911/G21 under a snug belt over a tee shirt-done it for 21.5 yrs. I don't oppose open carry-it is legal, but dumb-aggitates stupid people! Explore bicycle tubes and rubber bands on pistol grips-beats many multi-$ CCW options.

    IWB works best for me, though OWB is definitely more comfortable with a good belt and holster. But, the way I dress is better suited for IWB, and it's not terribly uncomfortable with a good holster and belt, and a single stack pistol that's not too heavy when loaded.

    IWB conceals a little better but OWB is much more comfortable for me.

    IWB w/ a supertuck and G26, or sr9c. I wear shorts with polos tucked in for work and this method conceals well.

    I wear a IWB holster for it appears to conceal better. I can fully understand everyone saying the OWB holster is more comfortable, I could see where that would be very true. I am 5'8 at 170 pounds, I need every edge I can get for good concealment. I like the crossbreed holster for I like wearing my shirts tucked in when going out for dinner.
