    Plus, if you do a back-flip on the dance floor it may come flying out and you might shoot somebody in your haste to retrieve it.

    Today I set my former IWB apendix holster - right hand holster for right person... at 6 o clock position. It is not disturb me at all on driving or at office.... but indeed, the handle of the pistol point to left hip and is very dificult to prezent. I ve tryed with transition method... draw with left and transfer to the right, but we have no rds into the cambere right here ....lots of movments...bigger nonsense. Driving with pretension seat belt activated and sob pistol is a ugly situation.
    Thanks

    We train throws a lot in the dojo, as a result we are pretty good at taking falls.

    Just the thought if taking a fall with a gun in SOB makes me cringe.

    You know what you have to do, but in the meantime a smaller gun like the G48 may be a solution for the immediate future.

    My duty belt is set up to keep my gear off my back for this reason as well as driving comfort.

    I used to carry a canteen over each kidney on my field gear right up until I fell on them once.

    A similar event effectively killed strong-side carry for me. My body shape forces me to carry close to 5:30 on strong-side; otherwise, the butt of my VP9 prints like crazy. I was carrying there one time while kicking a ball for my then-girlfriend's dog; unbeknownst to my thick-booted feet, I had moved onto some ice, and when I kicked, my support foot went skyward. The kidney area and sacrailiac joint do not appreciate sudden, high-impact compression against the butt of a pistol. I had a deep-tissue bruise and misaligned joint for three days. After that, appendix carry except when strong-side absolutely cannot be avoided without serious compromise.

    Driving comfort, new leather seats and one not overly hard fall made me completely stop carrying support mags on the back of my hip. Support mags now go appendix (snake eater mag pouch) and off side pocket.

    Timing of this thread is on point.

    I just talked to a guy at my local range where I was working today. I used to see him pretty much every Wednesday. He has been gone for about 4-5 weeks.

    Told me he took a fall outside his house, landed on his ass/low-back, and was carrying a Glock 42 SOB. He said it displaced the two bottom lumbar vertebrae and “smashed a big nerve.” Told me he was in a wheelchair for almost 2 weeks, then a walker for almost 2 more. He was still walking with a Irish Blackthorne walking stick when I saw him today. He said he is “getting better” and will “fully recover.”

    He’s a guy about my age, appears in average/maybe slightly better than average physical condition.

    He doesn’t carry SOB any more.
