    I agree with you, for the most part. Example..My carry method is very unique, so unique in fact that I don't know of anyone on this forum except myself that carries the way that I do. I've been carrying concealed for years, both revolvers and full size auto's under almost every condition of dress and weather conditions. My method and my holster is the only combination that I will carry, concealed or openly. I've tried all others, so I don't need or want anyone's advice. Sadly, most people want to go with the flow depending on what "everyone else agrees is the best", instead of thinking for themselves. If you think your method would be more beneficial to their needs, simply expose your method to them, if they're impressed, you won't have to offer any advise.

    He is talking about a close friend or family member, is that how you would treat your friends?

    To the OP, the other day I was fishing with a friend if over 22 years, as we were walking along carrying or gear I noticed his gun was IWB over his spine. I told him I didn't think it was a good idea and explained why. His response wasn't "stfu, myob, nunya bizness" or anything else. He just told me that it was a new holster and it was having issues. And then we went back to fishing. NBD.

    Just ask about the holster and tell them your opinion, friends won't be offended and a who knows maybe you will learn something.

    You know your friend/relative better than we do. I'm assuming since you asked this question of us you are very hesitant about having this conversation with them and how they will react. If that is the case, than you have never established any sort of rapport with them about firearms, firearm safety, defense tactics, holster positions, etc. Start there. Have conversation about the firearms that you both have and love. There are many topics that you can talk about and talk about in a non-confrontational manner. Other aspects about firearms will come up. After you build up a report with this person, making a suggestion about why they carry the way they do will not be looked upon as an assault on them personally since you have done the ground work in giving them trust in who you are and what you are about.

    I've always been a firm believer that it is easier to show a person what works than to tell them as well. This is easier done when you've built that rapport too.

    Are we talking about the stripping daughter or the person carrying the gun?

    Seriously, if the person carrying the gun wanted the OP's advice he/she/they/it would have asked for it. It's been my experience that people don't listen to unsolicited advice so I don’t waste my time giving it.

    If it is a close friend or relative, then you know how well they receive constructive criticism. If they value your opinions, then they will listen to you. If they think you are one of those "know-it-all's", then they may just ignore everything you say about it. On a more positive note, if they are close enough that you care about their safety, then you should not hesitate to offer your advice, then let them decide what works best for them.

    My husband carries his pistol differently than I do. I just felt it wasn't right. Remember this is MY husband who grew up with guns...I asked why he does and he said it feels more comfortable that way. End of story.

    They actually make a holster that holds the gun under the woman's bra

    No, it didn't. I will feel like a having a watermelon up there if I add more weight to what I already have. We're happy with what I have... It ain't broke, so why fix it?
