I have heard from more then a few that the small of the back (SOB) carry is potentially very risky. The risk reportedly comes from carrying any hard solid object over the spine. If the person using such a carry falls back and lands on the item sever injury to the spine is possible. It was further reported that several LEO’s each year suffer such injuries (some even paralysis). Dose anyone have first hand knowledge confirming these reports? Anyone using a SOB carry? I have made several such rigs at customer requests, I would like to be better informed so as to provide the best info to my customers and the forum members.
