    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.

    Mostly OWB everywhere for a while now. OWB is more comfortable for me.

    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.

    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.

    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
