When Does Off-Body Carry Outweigh On-Body Carry?

I firmly believe that on-body is the best way to carry a firearm…until it isn’t. When the solution to Carry-On-Body-At-All-Costs results in extremely unconventional holsters mounted on the body in unconventional ways the dogma actually becomes detrimental.

While there are a lot of drawbacks to carrying off-body, and it is not right for every circumstance, the question I want to challenge people with is do those drawbacks really outweigh the those of ‘alternative’ or unconventional on-body carry methods?

To help illustrate this, I’ve made a few videos. Check them out and decide for yourself!
