An easily accessible method of carry, like right on your belt in an outside-the-waistband or inside-the-waistband holster, will be more likely to help you in a larger number of self-defense situations. The less time and effort it takes to reach your gun, the more likely you are to be able to access it in quickly developing scenarios. By design, your gun is located inches from your strong hand. It’s in a natural position for immediate access. You can (normally) reach it with one hand, so if you’re fighting someone off with the other, you’re not necessarily out of business. And, the gun is also under your direct control at all times. So in a perfect world, where we could choose our work environments and dress code all the time, we’d all be well off carrying with a good belt holster.
