    I like the SOB carry. I used to carry both 1911 and Glock butt to the right, muzzle down inside the waistband. That carry position has the same downside as does a butt-down carry - you almost cannot avoid sweeping your own body when you draw. While more awkward, the carry orientation shown in the photo makes it highly UNLIKELY you will sweep your own body during the draw.

    Personally I think all the carry location debate is a bit over-stated. You can shoot yourself with any carry method. By now we've all seen the guy who who shot himself in the leg when drawing his Glock from a side-holster.

    The bottom line is: Carrying a gun is a dangerous activity that could injure you, or even kill you. Then again, not carrying a gun and needing one is equally dangerous and likely to result in death or injury. This is why the good-old-fashioned revolver is still the "better" carry option for almost any level of concealment where need of use is possible, but unlikely. Also, weight is the greater impediment to comfortable, long-wearing concealed carry. For anyone interested, I can carry a 642 Pro in a front pocket ALL the time. I can carry a 43C even more comfortably because it weighs only 12 ounces loaded. I can carry a Kahr P380 in a front pocket with a custom lanyard-activated Kydex trigger holster - about 13 ounces loaded.

    Why don't we see more interest in shoulder rigs, or body-shirts with underarm carry pockets?

    I live in Texas. This very winter has been a roller coaster ride. Two mornings ago it was 43F. This morning, it's 66F.

    I can't wear a coat or sweater this morning because I want to be normal. I want to be part of the cool kids. I want to be able to join in reindeer games and stuff.

    Even when it's cold enough to wear a coat or jacket, that thing has to come off when I'm indoors at family or a restaurant or store.

    If your trigger discipline is strict (as it should be) you shouldn't have any problems. Even at 4 o'clock carry if you come onto the trigger to quick you can shoot yourself in the leg still. If your draw is incorrect from 4 o'clock (angled inwards), you can shoot diagonally through your entire body when matched with incorrect finger placement.

    I've heard arguments that appendix is safer than 4 o'clock because the muzzle just about immediately points away from the body upon drawing.

    I carry appendix everyday. I will definitely suggest a full kydex holster. No cloth or leather, because the previously posting gentlemen are absolutely right. The gun is pointed in a dangerous direction all day, and I don't want it in a holster with ANY give to allow the trigger to actuate if I bend over to tie my shoe. Tier1 Concealed is my go to for appendix holsters. You'll part with a benjamin and a couple $20 bills, but it's well worth it. After the first day, you start to forget you're wearing it. I'm a pretty fit dude, but my vp9sk will still conceal under a fairly form fitting t-shirt. It's all preference and caution.

    frankly it needs a constant cover garment.......and i do not buy into the retention argument......that is why officers "blade away" on contacts when facing a subject or aggressor to lessen the chance of a gun grab.......

    it is uncomfortable.....at least for my build.....

    and its going to be problamatic in a vehicle with a seat belt........
