    Curious, do you guys carry out-of-waistband at home?

    Daily? weekends?

    I do, but only during jacket weather, when OWB is my preferred method of carry.

    I carry OWB pretty much everywhere and year round. IWB just doesn't work for me, and I have a box of holsters I don't use. In this blazing Florida heat, I will wear shorts with a tucked in tee shirt, with an unbuttened lightweight shirt, like Columbia. My favorite OWB belt holster is the Don Hume 721 OT, and for paddle, the Comp Tac adjustable cant.

    I only owb carry for the trail/woods. I have 2 small curious boys at home who would just want to see it so it has to be in the safe at home.

    Mostly OWB everywhere for a while now. OWB is more comfortable for me.
     
  6. OWB is far more comfortable and is my preferred method of carry however, realistically it's not always feasible. I usually carry IWB at home cause it's easier to conceal under a shirt.

    I do both depending on my attire and what is more comfortable.

    I don't carry at home. If I felt I needed a gun in my home it wouldn't be my home.
     
  9. My EDC is a G19. I have IWB, OWB and a shoulder holster. I do use them all depending on how I'm dressed and what I'm doing. To answer your original question, yes I carry OWB at home.

    I switched from CC to OC about six months ago for comfort. Currently carry a G27 in a Serpa holster all day everyday wherever it is not prohibited (Courtrooms, Post Office , secure areas at airports and K-12 schools) including at home and in my shop. I am about to change carry calibers though and it will be a Gen.4 G30 in a Serpa as soon as it comes in at my LGS.

    I usually opt for OWB whenever possible, including summer. However, it's usually an LCR tucked away at the house. G17 is usually within arms reach.
     
  15. I am able to OWB 99.9% of the time. The other .01 there is something in my pocket. All I have to do is not tuck my shirt in and I'm good to go. I switch up between a 642 G27 and G23 depending mostly on what I'm wearing and where I'm going.

    Regards, GMB
