Is IWB carry no longer needed? Login/Join

In VA, if you intend to CCW, and don’t succeed, it causes occasional citizen panic. If you carry openly, no one seems to call the police.

I conceal, but find IWB impossible to enjoy. Buying pants 2 inches too large makes the crotch fit and rise dimensions larger than required. OWB makes it so easy.

I OWB a Glock 26 or HK VP9SK but hide it under a shirt. A sharp-eyed person might see the vague outline. The squeamish are not offended as they don’t notice the slight protrusion.

Once TX changed their rules on open carry I don't worry about printing anymore. Wink

The will nourished tend to complain a lot concerning carry methods. For myself I am not a proponent of open carry. That's me but others see it differently, thus each to their own applies.

IWB is as popular as it's ever been due to the fact that it work, and it works very well.

I carry concealed as opposed to open carry. My view point is I do not want to draw attention to myself by open carry of a weapon.

In Florida open carry is generally illegal, which makes no never mind to me.I carry concealed, and probably always will.

I am headed to Texas for a few weeks, but, though I "think" I could carry openly there, I just don't want to do that. I hope not to need to use my firearm, but if I do, I want it to be as much of a surprise to the bad guy(s) as possible.

I very seldom see anyone open carrying in Texas, other than a lawman.
