IWB, which stands for “Inside the Waistband”, is one of the most commonly used holsters for concealed carry. It’s designed to sit close to your body on the inside of your pants and helps reduce the profile of your firearm. There are versions with a clip that slides over your belt for a secure fit and versions that use the tension from your belt and waistband to stay in place.
The IWB holster can be carried in multiple positions along your waistband. Where you carry it will depend on what you find most comfortable and practical. There’s the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions at your hips, the 6 o’clock position at the middle of your back, and the 12 o’clock position at your belly button. You can also choose the appendix carry option where the holster is placed about halfway between your pocket and waistband button.
Here at Galls, we are proud to carry one of the best IWB holster selections from the names you trust. These names include BlackHawk, Bianchi, DeSantis, Uncle Mike’s and more.
