    Lane 7, behind the gun.
    P30 v1, JRC CDAII.
    Or P2000sk
    Just because it "feels good", doesn't mean it's best.

    P365XL / Tenicor Velo,

    or a CZ P10C / Henry Holsters Flint

    Both qualified as "none of the above".

    I would like to try a 92x compact AIWB.

    Iím so AIWB nervous that Iím not comfortable trying it unless it has a safety and either a DA trigger/ hammer or a grip safety. Not saying itís reasonable or rational, but itís my thought on it.

    Still I really want to try a 92x compact AIWB.

    This might be a good time to link to @Mr_White's analysis of the relative safety of carry positions.

    Beretta 92. Once I grab a holster, a Smith 637 (also external hammer) will see some carry.

    The thumb on hammer really gives me a sense of security on the reholster. I like the DA trigger, and would likely choose it anyway... but when selecting a small revolver I specifically wanted a hammer I could thumb on holster.

    I carry a fullsize M&P 1.0 in 9mm, same SKU as my duty gun. If I had my druthers I would carry the same model with a thumb safety but want to replicate my work gear as closely as possible

    Glock 19x. I carry in a raven vanguard 2 so the ďholsterĒ is clipped onto the gun blocking the trigger before the pistol gets placed IWB and clipped on the belt. I find it to be the overall safest way to holster a gun appendix because the trigger is completely blocked before the gun goes anywhere close to your belt line. I have been dong it for years. The only problem is that it can get uncomfortable on long days and I am getting less tolerant of it in my old age. I will be getting a Glock 43x into the rotation and plan to try a vanguard 2 for it as well. If I move to a more traditional holster I will get a gadget.

    2. I carry a pistol with an external hammer.
    3. I carry a pistol with an SCD.
    4. I carry a pistol having none of the above features.

    • Please only vote if you are truly a dedicated, daily AIWB carrier.
    • If you carry more than one type pistol, vote for the one you carry most often.
    • Once you have voted, post the make and model of the gun your vote is based upon.
    Beretta PX4CC. A Razorbacked 365xl w/507k occasionally pinch-hits.

    I most often carry my first-gen Smith & Wesson M&P 9 fullsize.
