    AIWB is not for folks with guts. Why you ask?
    1. without the proper wedge your gut makes it print like your wearing a TV mic backwards
    2. With the wedge if you sit your gut pushes the handle out and you print like a fat kid trying to shoplift a loaf of bread
    3. If your dunlop rolls over the grip it may conceal, but having to lift it to get to you rig is gay
    4. It hurts to sit in the car, seat belt covering your roll that is covering your gun in an AIWB
    5. AIWB is a niche that few actually can get away with comfortably and proficiently

    No upside to AIWb carry. Big downside to it. Plus trying to draw from behind the steering wheel without crossing your own body especially in dynamic situation is tough. I'll pass

    I can think of one upside right off the bat. Harder for someone to draw your own weapon from aiwb carry and use it on you.
