Qwiks,Qwiks draw said:Let me clarify a few things. In a close in defense scenario, and those are what most are, grappling, wrestling, being pushed or tripped, or any physical one on one combat means there is a good chance of winding up on the ground.
There is also a chance of slipping, sliding, or tripping. In all of these cases, landing on your back violently and with the holster or holster and gun at the base of the spine means one is going to take a major blow to this area. Disk rupture and spine fracture are a very real concern. and do happen frequently do to this vary kind of thing.
So if one does wind up on the ground during an altercation the above stated will happen.
The decision is still up to the CCW individual.
So folks, do what you will. Just remember there are consequences for each type of carry and what they are.
Do so at your peril. All it takes is one time at a wrong angle, and you are out of service. I've had a ruptured disk and pinched nerve. The single most painful event in my life! Mine was not caused by SOB carry, but I was lucky and mine was fixed by surgery. Not every such surgery is successful.DRAEGER said:I can't imagine getting seriously hurt by carrying SOB, unless you are carrying a HUGE cannon, which is kind of silly. I know from personal experience that I never received any injuries and several occasions...
madmax40 said:The one problem I see with this type of carry that has not been stated, is being able to defend the weapon. Most people have a limited range of motion and strength operating their arms behind their back. Since we don't have eye's in the back of our head we may not see an attack coming. It is much easier to defend and draw the weapon from the front or side [IMO].
What are your thoughts on this?
