Deep cover. I AIWB my Remington RM380.

Otherwise, depending on attire, I am going to IWB or OWB my P365 or 43 at the 4:00 position.

Depends on the circumstances. Most of the time, I use an IWB kydex holster behind my right hip with a Sig 229. I find that not possible with a backpack though. In that sort of circumstance, I use a DeSantis pocket holster with a Sig P290rs in 9mm. It doesn't get in the way of the pack belt, and is virtually invisible, to avoid alarming the soccer moms in the trail head and first half mile. I've found the latter combination useful at other times as well.

I will use a large pocket or any holster that is handy in town carry. Now, when going into "Grizz", Country I only use a quality across chest rig.

95% of the time IWB at about 1:00.

On rare occasions pocket carry in a DeSantis Superfly. Also on rare occasions a Miami Classic Shoulder Holster when I feel like Mike Hammer. For those of you who do not know who Mike Hammer is Mickey Spillane just turned over in his grave. Pick up ma book.

Cold weather months Stealthgear Onyx. Warm months pocket carry in cargo thigh pocket. HK P30sk. I'm not really thrilled with the warm weather setup. Would like to go with a smaller firearm.

Usually a g19 IWB @ 3:30 or a S&W shield in a pocket holster.

I mostly carry OWB about 4 o’clock as I do at work. You can’t argue against muscle memory etc...in a stressful situation. BUT.you must accept that there must always be room for adaptation as the need arises. In these situations, an alternate method may be needed, such as when I’m running. This method needs to be a set way also. For me it is a Tommy’s Gun Pack. I always take a minute before I leave to go running to think about where my weapon is and how I need to access it.

When I carry, which is all the time now that I'm working from home courtesy of Covid-19, it's a S&W Shield 9 in a reinforced Mike's Special IWB from TT Gunleather at 3/4:00. I prefer 3:00 as it's less prone to printing there, but for some reason the holster keeps wanting to migrate rearward. I usually wear a Duluth Trading heavyweight long-tail t-shirt over it. When we get back to working in the office, I'll have to leave the gun home as getting caught with it at the office would get me fired instantly. I keep thinking about trying a pocket holster, but my pants (jeans, 98% of the time) tend to be snug-fitting enough that even a small pistol would create an obvious bulge and probably be uncomfortable too.

When I am working downtown, I normally unlock the Shield when I get home and just keep it handy. If I need to run to the store, it drops into a coat pocket sans holster without being at all obvious. If I was wearing a suit or driving a car for a living, I would be looking for a shoulder rig.
