Carry position preferences and why

Sorry if this is a topic already covered. I try searching for it but didn't find what I was looking for. Any input is much appreciated. Thanks!

What's your preferred concealed carry position for your P938/P238 and why? I am a smaller framed guy and am trying to find a holster and carry position that works well and comfortable without burning through so many holsters.

Pics of holsters and position as well as makes and models would help. Thanks again!

*oh I also am rocking a P938 with factory viridian laser too. Trying to figure out if I have to remove it in order to have a functional carry option.

I carry a 938 w/viridian laser @ 3 o'clock in either a full kydex from multiholsters.com or a crossbreed minituck. I'm a medium framed guy. Both holsters fit well and conceal pretty well too.

I've been looking at the Crossbreads as having the backing looks like it could be comfortable. Have you tried it in a appendix position?

AIWB when required. Deeper concealment and easier to defend and I can draw from my back or while seated if needed.

P239 SAS AIWB when I grab & go (which is most often)
4:00 IWB when I plan to carry on my feet for an extended period of time. (not very often)

AIWB with a Cook's Trigger Guard Holster with the belt clip (not the lanyard kind). Minimalistic because I am small framed so no worries of printing. Have them for my 238, 938, 239, 225A1, and several others.

I carry my Sig 938 in a number 3 Uncle Mikes sticky holster
Appendix position, inside the waist band
I am going to get a lot of hate for this, but I carry "Israeli Style" with an empty chamber, safety off.
Yes, it does take two hands to rack the slide, and it takes me 3 seconds to get a shot off.
I carry my gun every day and this is the best balance between safety and readiness for me.

My P938 I just pocket carry -- easy for concealment, can be done in almost any outfit, and you have a wide variety of holsters that work with it (I even have one that activates my Viridian laser automagically).

Pocket
Edit: And why? Because that gun is small enough to pocket [in a holster].

What's the name of it? I'd like to be able to keep my Viridian Laser on and. It have to remove it.

With your Uncle Mikes, is it just a pocket holster or does it have a clip? The holster doesn't come out with the draw?
