    Default Gang unit: How do you carry it?

    I've been wearing my gang unit for a few weeks now and am very impressed with its build and quality. So far wearing it at the at the small of my back disappears with ease. Wearing it appendix prints a bit more but just make sure to wear a good belt and that will help a lot. I did attempt to rotate the belt mount 90 degrees for a horizontal mount but the mounting holes didn't line up unfortunately.
    Has anyone found out a way to mount the GU horizontally?

    Mine is worn on my duty belt just to the left of the buckle. Its on a 45degree angle so the handle is positioned for weak side draw, (it took some work to get the screws to lined up but its possible). Its also positioned so its behind the belt (clip in front), that way the handle is semi concealed behind my mags; but easily reached.

    I bought it after seeing the CCWer get tackled in the Walmart. I wanted a knife I could grab with my weak hand while guarding my gun with my strong hand. Its also reach-able for strong hand grab

    If I were using it in street clothes Id try for a similar set up, say 11:45ish

    I carry mine pretty much the same way as Edelweiss except in a vertical manner. In plain clothes/business attire I wear it vertically as well so as not to change up/confuse myself with different modes of carry. On mine, the holes do line up so I am able to carry it horizontally if I so desire. I've only had it for a month or two so I'm surprised yours doesn't line up also.

    While at CRG-3 this weekend, I had my mags at 9 and the GU at 10:30ish. At one point I went to do a speed reload (slide locked to the rear during a drill) and tried to load my pistol with the GU. I missed the mag well and poked my hand with the GU tip. Thankfully, it was just a poke and I didn't stab myself with it or draw any blood. So, I may have to rethink how I carry my gear in plain clothes.

    Just left (10 o'clock) of my IWB vertical double mag carrier. Horizontal, edge up, handle pointed at buckle. G17 AIWB right of buckle. I have a big chest and (reasonably) small waist so I can conceal gear pretty well.

    The GU is one of the easiest knives to carry horizontally. A Tek-Lok or belt clip will do it. Personally, settled on IWB with a 45-degree cant, secured by a single pull-the-dot belt loop. But if horizontal is your thing, the GU is a prime candidate for that.

    Ha, that's an interesting experience shooterb. Glad it was just a poke! And now that I look at it I tried to line up the holes across the sheath and completely overlooked placing them side by side... I'm going to have to try this out.

    I've tried to load a surefire into my G19 at least once - thankfully it was a match and gave me the heads-up I needed to relocate the light on my belt...

    Shooterb,
    I guess you figured I don't miss much, but I was trying to figure out what the hell you tossed at your feet.

    Yeah, I picked up on that. haha. I'm just glad I didn't have to do first aid on myself. That would've been awesome.

    Jess sent me the video of that particular drill. It's filmed from behind, but I can imagine the "WTF?!" look on your face as you were watching me. I changed the GU from vertical to horizontal for the rest of the weekend, but am not sold on it yet. Especially when carrying appendix.
