    Glock 48 in a polecraft holster which is fantastic for the price. Plus I just recently bought a iwb with a claw made by a local guy that I'll post later.

    The claws are invaluable when I am wearing just a t shirt.... (well...and pants too...the claw doesn't help much without pants)

    I need the butt of the gun to press into my body more so the t shirt drapes clean. In the winter the claw doesn't add much under bulkier clothes.

    Some people HATE the claws and have an almost religious opposition to them. It's weird. Never heard a valid reason why. Only that "if you need the claw you have the wrong holster".

    Only reason I hate the claw is when carrying at 430ish it likes to ride up or down inside the waistband when pressing against the fabric where the belt lays on the outside if that makes sense. For appendix it works 100% perfect.

    I just use the polecraft for 430 and the custom for appendix now. The reason I'm currently doing both is I'm trying to like appendix but it's really irritating and 430 seems so much better for my build.

    I'm the opposite way. I can't do appendix at all because I like to sit down. (And because my manly sculpted frame doesn't let me hide a pistol against my chiseled abs....or something....)

    But at 4:30 I need the claw to keep the grip from sticking out behind me. 4:30 is my favorite as the fun disappears and is totally out of my way including when sitting in the car with the seatbelt buckled.

    There really is no "correct" concealment set up. You really have to custom tailor it to each person's body and clothing type.

    For a full size handgun.
    A hybrid holster with a forward cant seems to work really well. It keeps the gun close to the body and distributes weight efficiently. A sturdy gun belt also helps. It’s a very comfortable setup.

    G43xmos w/holosun 407k green in a mission first tactical minimalist holster. It makes this pretty easy to carry. I am looking at probably picking up a werkz m6 soon though. Being able to re-holster 1 handed would be nice. I was looking at the tulster oath holsters, but think I like the design of werkz better.

    I do like that with this mission 1st holster, you can completely manipulate the gun with the trigger covered. You can insert/pop mags and load/unload the gun without ever taking it out of it.

    Not to but in but I find myself needing mine more often when I'm not wearing it. I have used it at the range and when I do site visits for work to open access doors and such. I hate being at the range and needing a tool and not having them.

    Yeah, all the time. It isn't great for screws set deep into something, but it's been very useful while I've had it. I probably use the zip-cutter and bottle opener more than anything on it though. I can't say I've used the O2 wrench though.

    I've got a Swiss card in the wallet that also sees lots of use.

    It was on sale just b4 last Christmas for half off. I like gadgets so figured I'd give one a try. The hex wrenches come in handy all the time around gun stuff. I did manage to bend this flathead on a stuck screw, but it took some doing. I haven't straightened it up yet, but will soon. You can also just buy different links or replacements if they wear out. It's way more comfortable than I thought it would be and the screws stay tight. The knockoff Amazon ones seem to lose screws more. The Leatherman screws have a flat section where the link touches it and then threads start after it.

    I’ve always thought they kinda looked solid! Reviews say they are heavy as crap. All the benchmades in the world and I’ve had a few aren’t worth my leatherman!

    The CSX recently entered the rotation. With the cooler weather, it's been OWB in a Versacarry Arma Holster.
