I usually carry a compact 1911 at around 4 oclock.
On Thursday afternoon I fell from approx 10 ft on to my right upper back/shoulder area, and now have 4 broken ribs on my right side, (where the pistols grip was located) and a closed fracture of my right scapula.
I have again been reminded that pain hurts.
S.O.B.? Not for me, 4 oclock hurts enough.
Be careful out there.
(I know the OP corrected sob to 8 oclock for her actual carry position, just throwing out a real world situation for consideration.)
