"Honor, justice, and humanity forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us. We cannot endure the infamy and guilt of resigning succeeding generations to that wretchedness which inevitably awaits them if we basely entail hereditary bondage upon them." - Thomas Jefferson, Declaration of Causes and Necessity of Taking up Arms (July 6, 1775)

I carry my xdm 4.5" .40 IWB in a crossbreed in the 4-4:30 position. Drove from ohio to myrtle beach in september.... in a honda civic.

Seriously with a good holster and a good belt, I don't notice.

Same here...

Although a lot of time I put my XD in the center console. Seems like it would be easier to get to and pull faster than from my hip with a seat belt in the way.
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.

When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.

They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither safety nor liberty.

I carry my 45 XDm with the holster it came with, I just always wear Carharts, long jackets, or long sleeve shirts that button down just to cover it up. Otherwise I use a Leapers Law Enforcement Vertical Shoulder Holster.

Sorry, I couldn't resist any longer. Incorrect homophones eat holes in my soul.
Be polite. Be professional. Have a plan to kill everyone you meet. Semper Fi.

A man who feels he must ask for freedom surrenders it by doing so.

I am a Man and for that no apology is offered.

I carry my .45 4" service model in a CBST w/ CB belt at about 2:30-3:00 with regular clothes and I'm 5'10" 165 lbs. I've always liked my jeans a little loose in the waist, this just takes up that slack. I go everywhere and nobody seems to notice. I keep the cant tilted way forward.
Man plans and God laughs.
