SOB Carry

First off yes I know SOB carry is dangerous and all that I know so please let's not get into that. I'm considering getting a Crossbreed Supertuck for SOB does anyone else use that holster for SOB carry and if you do SOB carry just not with that holster what do you use. Also if you SOB carry how comfortable do you find it sitting down? Thanks carry on
 

When I got my first LTCF about 15 years ago, I carried a Makarov .380. I really didn't have troubles as its a medium to compact imo. It wasnt uncomfortable at all. I guess it depends on what you plan on carrying. hope this helps.
 
xman,

I've not used my Supertuck for that type of carry. I've been told that the Quickclip is the more viable Crossbreed platform for SOB and cross-draw carry as it's not as wide and is a differently shaped piece of leather. In my opinion, the Supertuck is the better of the two and should give you a bit more versatility, but the Quickclip has its place with folks as well. The previous poster said it right, it depends on what you're carrying as that will dramatically impact your comfort level.

That said, I sympathize with you. I started as a SOB. (insert your favorite joke here) I was quickly desuaded once a Columbus, Ga police officer gave me a crash-course on why I shouldn't SOB with a Glock 30. It was impossible to get to seated in my vehicle and it hurt like nobody's business if I fell on it, not to mention the huge "clank" when I sat down most times. But, it suited my needs so I stayed with it.

So, no matter what anyone tells you on the matter if it suits your particular needs, do what you must. Every type of carry fills a need-type or it wouldn't exist. Some present time delays, some make us fixed targets, and some are flat out dangerous. I teach holster issues in a CCW class for Missouri and the SOB isn't one of the examples, but it falls within the time delay portion. I do stress that if it fits the needs of the student, do what you must, but you must train on what you do or you've set yourself up for failure.
 
Depends on your build for one. An athletic build, small waist and big chest is easiest. The super tuck is a great holster for that but sitting is always a problem I don't care what kind of holster you use. I SOB carried for years every summer because I could wear a light tee shirt and keep it concealed. I used a soft leather pancake type holster. You definately want leather between your back and the firearm if you are going to carry it that way for very long, nothing like metal pushing into your spine or kidneys to wake yo up. They didn't have the Supertuck back then. I think you have to look at the size of the firearm you are carrying to see if it is practical.
 
I'd love to have a xbreed based on everyone's opinion.. but I haven't invested in one yet.. I SOB with my CPX-1 (same as the KelTec P-11) I carry it about 4:30.
If I have it in the right position, It's not to bad sitting down, etc.. It absolutely helps with concealment.

I use an Ace Case tuckable. Not quite as nice as Xbreed, but it's also not as pricey.. I use a lefty.. I am in and out of peoples homes and wear polo type shirts and docker type pants.. Nobody has asked about it yet, so it must be fairly concealed, at least to the casual observer..

An ex-cop friend of mine picked right up on it, but he is pretty observant..

Well I'm trying to see the best way to conceal my Glock 22. I have a should rig that with the right button up shirt conceals well but after having it on for 4 hours I can't wait to take it off cuz the weight on my upper body like that just bothers me. So I'm looking at different IWB options. I've tried having it at about 430 and I really like it the problem is it sticks out when I sit down. I know another option would be

Ok, the G22 is going to create unique issues. Being that it's a full frame pistol you'll need to toy with the ride height of the Crossbreed Supertuck. Riding low or riding at the belt line with the upper edge of the kydex simply isn't going to be a comfortable option. You can add a little cant to the Supertuck to help ease that issue, but the length of the pistol is where the issue is going to be.

Typically when I've carried SOB it's been with a 3 inch subcompact like the G30 and G26. That allowed me to sit in my vehicle comfortably and didn't create a "lumpy" area in the seat of my trousers when I bent over for something. Should you choose to cant a bit with a G22, you'll find that the closer your muzzle gets to the tailbone the less comfortable it is. Another poster said 3:30 was a good carry position with the Supertuck. When I had my G30 I carried directly below the right kidney, which is pretty close to that same position. Every inch of movement in any direction can change how it feels, make sure you have a sturdy carry belt!
 
I've been able to carry a Service Model .45cal Springfield XD in my SuperTuck in the SO my B. It's very comfortable, but drawing while seated presents a problem.

Seriously, if you fall on that gun you could get hurt very badly
 
I carry my Kahr PM 9 in a remora clip less IWB holster at SOB. Works best for me in shorts and t shirt weather. Good thing about the remora is it's very versatile. You can carry it IWB at any position and even pocket carry. Easily change your carry position on the fly when situations dictate doing so. Carry on !!
 
When I tried to carry SOB, I could not get over the way it felt when I would sit down. It felt like it would stick way out. Made me too self-conscious to carry. I prefer IWB at 3:30.
 
It is summer so I use a Cliptack too. I am ignorant on what SOB really means? The first thing that came to mind is "Shrimp On the Barbie"...:no: NO???
 
I CC SOB or OWB or shoulder. Really depends on weather, cloths, if I'll be standing/walking driving or going out for a bite. SOB is comfortable for me but as stated earlier, does feel a bit weird while sitting at a restaurant. Hence the multiple holsters to conceal. It's gotta work for you!
