    I voted yes without any restrictions. That being said, at my local IDPA club anytime there is a seated start (e.g. from inside the car prop) the WSB calls for the gun to be placed on the dash or center console. Not saying this should be a rulebook requirement, but maybe as a best practice. Kinda like when designing a USPSA stage that calls for a gun-loaded-n-holstered facing uprange start I found it reduces the potential for an uprange draw if the WSB calls for wrists above shoulders. Again, not a requirement in the rulebook thing but a Ďbest practicesí based on observations from working major matches.

    However one thought did occur to me: If IDPA does allow AIWB Iím curious how or if they are going to continue to enforce the requirement for the holster and mag pouch to be worn behind the hip bone (I think the exact wording is trigger is behind the centerline of the side).

    One possible solution I thought of was if wearing an OWB holster/mag pouches then the afore mentioned rule should apply. However if gun and mags are carried IWB, then the position should be allowed in front of the centerline/hipbone as long as it is concealed by the cover garment that is closed in the front. Maybe this is my inner disdain for the ďIDPA vestĒ and AIWB/IWB user should wear a sweatshirt, button up, or even T-shirt to conceal their carry gear.

    And the Survey Says:

    Survey results out today 1/10.
    68% of responses say to allow AIWB in IDPA competition.
    Strangely only 48% say that they wear AIWB.
    Maybe at least some of the 20% is from repressive jurisdictions. Surely some are like me who don't but think freestyle is what counts.

    Why is that strange? I supported APP carry option for IDPA competition, but have no intention of carrying in that manner, nor am I a personal fan of such.

    That makes sense. I really don't care unless you hold up a match because we have to put a tourniquet on your ding dong.

    Not optimistic that Joyce/Bill/IDPA green light this (only shoot IDPA when USPSA is dark) but as a longtime AIWB EDC doofus I would like the option to shoot it in that manner 1 Sat a month.

    What surprised me a bit was that only 1338 members took the time to respond. Of course I am guessing a lot o members just didn't know about it.

    Well, itís a little strange because not only does someone who doesnít AIWB have to not care if others do, but also has to not care so much that they bother to take the time to go vote in a poll to express their not-caring.

    Iíd been giving this thread some thought, and kind of arrived at the same conclusion.

    If some jagoff wants to shoot himself in the dick trying to be internut cool at a gun game itís really not my problem except that (a) as you point out itís going to affect everyone elseís match that day and (b) the liability issues could cause problems for the facility, club, and potentially even itís officers in todayís litigious world.

    But the Iím edited risk in this type of carry is almost entirely to the jagoff, vs what Iíve seen (like others have posted) where behind-the-hip shooters seem to be often blissfully unaware of where that muzzle winds up pointing during ďload and make readyĒ, probably precisely because itís not themselves they are putting at risk.
