Where on your waist do you wear your IWB?

I tried mine for the first time yesterday (Burns/Alessi GWH). I located it on the outside quarter of my right buttock, the #47D mag bottom printed slightly but the muzzle being pushed out a little by the flesh helped keep the grip into my back. I might move it back a bit more, but I would have to go to the other side of the belt loop on my pants and that might make it too far back.

I definitely noticed the need for a good gunbelt with the IWB. My belt holster (Rosen 5JR Express) didn't pose any problem with my current belt. I noticed that with the IWB the extra belt tension restricts the action of holstering/unholstering of the pistol by compressing the holster around the pistol. Next purchase is a gunbelt!!

Longer belt and bigger pants. Think of it as gaining a pound or two.


I wear my (Alessi) CQC/I just behing my right hip. It doesn't seem to print.

The extra tension isn't from a short belt, just the fact that the belt is not stiff enough to stay put when I draw from the holster so I have to tighten it and that in turn binds the gun in the holster.
