    Just curious about individual carry positions. I feel mos comfortable with my pants at the navel but they have never stayed there long (maybe TMI). I guess it's my body type (6'1"/200#). My EDC feels best when the curve of the grip is sort of tucked close to the old luv handles and I am positive there is no print at all. When the pants slip down a little while walking it seems the grip is poking out more causing a potential to print. I use a CompTac and see some with the clips all the way down so a lot of the gun is above the pants and some wear as low as possible. Opinions??
    BTW: I don't want to get banned so there will be no pics from me.:embarassed:

    I wear my jeans neatly at the top of my hips, usually cover with a good sweater vest or light jacket. No way could I wear pants at my navel and I don't see how people have room in the crotch of their pants to wear them that high other than catastrophically bad tailoring.

    If I read it right, you are asking where to wear the holster, low or high, as opposed to the pants. That being the case, I like a low ride, with the low part of the grip riding at or slightly below the top of the pants.

    Another vote goes to,

    [X] low ride.



    They seem to conceal better with my body type.

    5'11"
    155 - 160 pounds

    Just average I guess?
