    CCW question: would you feel comfortable carrying in the appendix position?

  • #2
    Not me. It does offer the advantage of the strong side carry but with the benefit of the cross-draw carry in being easy to reach while in the sitting position.
    I just don't like that the muzzle is pointed at the user's leg. It seems to be favored by police detectives who don't care much that it exposes their weapon when their jacket is open.

        I use that carry in a cross draw as I am left hand and left side in a vehicle does not work too good. My holster is further back so the muzzle is pointed more straight down my side.

            With the awareness that the appendix is located on the right side between the hip and the umbilicus, and I am right-handed, I have to say it's difficult for me to hide a sidearm beneath my shirt or jacket in the position because it bulges very obviously. I prefer a shoulder holster (butt forward, under the armpit) or a crossdraw holster, especially when I drive, because that position hides the piece from the passenger's view (and reach), and permits me to draw with my left hand, if necessary.
            I carry on my right side in a hip or IWB holster when I'm in the field, shooting at small game or plinking, but I absolutely do not want to advertise my carry in a public or social environment or I lose the advantage of surprise.

              If you use an IWH with a small framed handgun it is very beneficial to carry in the front like this, although just about every way to conceal a handgun, no matter the size, there are always pros and cons that people are going to throw out there. It all boils down to personal preference while still being able to conceal the firearm from others.
