    I wear my GU underneath a tucked shirt at work. It is MUCH easier to grab than the IA.

    OK, you've tossed another consideration at me. Maybe neck carry is not really what I want here ....

    I've only played around with neck carry at home and I don't like it. I seriously doubt you'd be able to grab it in a fight. At least AIWB it would be in the same spot more or less, secured by your belt, whereas neck carry would have it all over the place.

    Some carry methods are best suited to proactive roles. And circumstances sometimes dictate less than ideal methods...I can't always carry my preferred loadout. Be flexible and try different set ups to find what works best for you in different circumstances.

    Most important: have SOMETHING. A close second: practice.

    Reading TG's comments I suspect she can keep a neck knife in place better than most of us guys. I won't wear anything around my neck unless it's on a breakaway. In ER my stethoscope was never around my neck!
    I always have my primary weapon; it's right between my ears.

    Distilled very nicely for the general circumstance.

    I might add “be strong/ferocious ” as a tertiary element.

    The topographical feature containment unit (AKA bra-zeer) allows a beaded chain (what I use) to go UNDER it. So yes indeed, this limits stuff flying around

    Yes, that must be a factor.

    I was reminded to pull the trigger on a fixed blade for EDC after an acquaintance told me, over coffee at a restaurant, that she had thwarted a rape by stabbing the POS in the gut with her balisong as he was removing his pants. She said, "It's not like you think; you can feel the knife going in and blood gets all over your hands and everywhere!"

    The guy stumbled/ran away – mission accomplished.

    I'm glad she had the fire to act!
