If I carried appendix the muzzle would basically be pointed directly back at me due to my gut. ‘MURICA 🤔gut carry?

Pros: Concealment, faster draw. Cons: Dying with no genitals, 30 seconds after a small mistake.

The pro is you are likely to shoot your genitals off.

Guns never go off by themselves. Period. It doesn't matter where you keep it. Train, train, and train some more and just in case, train, train and train. Simple.

Why do all these vidz advertise "super concealable" with AIWB yet every one is printing?!? Lol

Appendix carry is just Mexican carry legitimatized by use of an expensive holster. Still dangerous but now good for business. The list of appendix carry holster manufacturers is huge. Thus, the higher danger with carrying a gun pointed at your important parts is ignored for money. Holstering & unholster can & do cause accidental/neglectful discharges for many reasons. It happens so if you think about it, which do you prefer if the unthinkable occurs: HIP CARRY - A "Tex Grabner" accidentally shooting yourself in the leg while training/practicing? or APPENDIX CARRY - An extremely embarrassing accidentally shooting yourself in the man-tool or femoral artery while training/practicing & bleeding out there before getting to the hospital? Appendix carry note: You don't what to hear the jokes from female professionals (LEO's, CSI, paramedics, nurses, morticians) dealing with your remains.

you'll be hard pressed to finder a faster draw from any other IWB holster position.

if you have a gut then the appendix carry is harder

The first problem can be alleviated with the right holster

I have tried appendix carry, no. No.

If it's over your junk it's technically not appendix carry :D. But regardless guns don't just go off.

The 'whew' sound drawing from appendix makes all the difference!!! Mat best is the best.

no Bikini snap? Rated Red would be the Perfect Place to Practice !
AJ Mood (1 year ago)
I personally prefer appendix carry. I don't like to dress around my gun. with appendix all I have to do is make sure that my shirt is long enough to cover. I used to carry 3 or 5 and no matter what angle or material my shirt was it would print.
Inigo montoya (1 year ago)
Unless you have a track record of negligent discharges I don't think the risk of "shooting your junk off" is that great. Just like any new holster/position just train with the weapon dry a bunch and make sure you holster the weapon with thought.
kevin cornell (1 year ago)
i will never point a loaded gun at my junk people are crazy
Samuel I (7 months ago)
It won't discharge if you don't pull the trigger. Keep ur booger picker along the rail til you're drawn. Junk safe

+Sam Karrenstein​ so if you have a family ur taking care of financially a your on a budget you rather take away the potential groceries from ur family so u can have a high speed low drag holster yeah so cool dude fucked up! uncle mikes isn't the tacticool holster but it's been around for years. I have uncle mikes duty holster on my security belt I've had for 13 years working patrol and used a uncle mikes iwb for a long time working executive protection, you think I give a fuck about a fancy 300 dollar plus plastic holster I can use in appendix carry as a edc? No I'll use what I used for years on the cheap, remember it isn't the guy who wears high-speed shit or jacks off to everything glock and 300 dollars worth of SF gear its the dude with skills

what mag sleeve is that? I assume a Glock 19 with G17 mags using a sleeve to give a full grip?
Paul Nehrkorn (1 year ago)
Glock 43 with the extended mag.

What kind of holster do you guys recommend for appendix carry? Kydex? Leather? And what manufacturer?

Zachary Gustin kydex everytime. I like the g code incog and the trex arms sidecar. Check out both.

I have no problem carrying an RMR'd G19 appendix. All depends on your holster.
Garrett Yelton (1 year ago)
Took me awhile to get use to carrying appendix. But if you operate your weapon properly then you really shouldn't be worried about shooting your balls. Carry Glock17 with at least 2 back up mags cause im ready for a fuckin fight!

Uh Matt, were you adding your own "swoosh" sounds as you presented?

I carry with the appendix carry everyday. I'm a small guy and a lefty. I use a iwb kydex holster and it is very comfortable. Everyone complains about it being next to their junk but I don't understand why. The odds of a ND with a proper holster and you not screwing with your gun every 5 seconds are very low. I'm a small dude and appendix carry allows me to carry a full sized FNS-9

Small dudes carry big guns...big dudes carry small guns... Is that because small dudes cant shoot or because they try to make their junk look man sized?

Not to mention, you can hide your draw. If you peel your shirt back and reach back to 4 or 5 oclock, everyone in the world knows whats about to happen. To draw appendix, you might just be adjusting your belt, scratching your "home maker" or any number of other innocuous things.

The Pew Place I don’t think I can agree with that.. just because if I see someone lift their shirt and reach for their appendix my mind is telling me “that person is reaching for a gun!”

+Graysonemory assuming all criminals are dumb simply because the ones caught being dumb on camera are dumb is preparing to get caught short. In general, criminals are actually smarter than the people trying to stop them, which is why for every law, every policing breakthrough, new technology, the bad guys are seemingly a step ahead. Chances are good the average citizen, should they ever wind up in a DGU, will probably be interacting with a dumb bad guy, looking for drug money, etc, but on the other hand, they might run into rapists, serialists, gang bangers, any number of types who one, already have the element of surprise on their side and two, have likely done this successfully many times before and have a very successful plan to get what they want. Take every single possible advantage you can come up with into a potential lethal encounter. Assume every potential scenario involves a bad guy that is more intelligent, more well trained, with more experience, a better plan, faster reactions, stronger mindset and the wind behind them, for that matter. As far as "if shits about to go down, it's about to go down," well, yeah, in a rudimentary sense that's true, but how much time and planning you get to make ready depends on the who what where when why and how of that individual situation, plus how early you're able to recognize warning signs and how quickly you're able to adapt accordingly. Think of any one of a hundred scenarios where you recognize early that "shits about to go down" in front of you, around you, or involving you, but your escape is not viable or your moral compass isn't going to allow you to leave others to die, or etc, so you're staying, situation is becoming nasty so you decide it's time to clear cover and grip your weapon: one of two things will next happen, a) you're carrying 4 o'clock iwb, so putting your hand on your weapon involves a big arcing movement, a movement not confused for anything but a draw stroke, bringing attention to yourself and you've now become the primary focus of Mr ass hole and entered into a game of who can fire more accurately more quickly while simultaneously getting all sorts of new and exciting holes to breath, and bleed through, OR b) because you're carrying AIWB, when Mr littledick escalates to the point you're sure "shits about to go down", you're able to quickly and smoothly bring your hand to your buckle area behind the shopping bag your carrying, thumb your cover and grip your weapon, decreasing your draw time by almost half, and Mr dickhead is none the wiser, still focused on whatever his major malfunction is from: from this point you could covertly introduce your weapon to the fight, or go full speed and loud, but because Mr assface is focused elsewhere, his .25 sec reaction time, .25-.5 sec peogression through OODA, his .25 sec orienting towards you and his .75-1.5 sec draw gives you anywhere from .75-2.5 sec to poke as many holes in him as you can, which depending entirely on your ability, could be enough time to make sure you don't wind up with any new holes at all. The purpose of this really really long winded (typed) reply is to show that life situations aren't cookie cutter, you might not be lucky enough to be attacked by a dumbass bad guy, so prepare as if your bad guy is going to be the most dangerous dude you can imagine to train for, stack every deck in your favor and, specific to this thread, carry appendix because reasons.

if shits about to go down, shits about to go down. criminals arent smart

Never been remotely tempted to carry appendix. Risk/reward is too high. Also I have that nordic gut going on...so there's that. Would help with concealment, though, I suppose.

motoxguy7 Well said. Notes taken and I'll give that a try.
motoxguy7 (1 year ago)
C'mon man.... its not a Nordic gut. Just tell people, "when you got a gun like this, you gotta build a shed over it". That's the proper man response.
90whatever (1 year ago)
Nordic here too. I don't think we have the gut issue ethnically-cornered. Dolph Lundgren is Nordic...gotta find out how he cracked the code. Must be the ol' diet and exercise thing.Maybe we give that a try?

GMI Kydex agreed
GMI Kydex (1 year ago)
I've heard of more people having NDs with a strong side holster, and even more with SOB carry. Appendix is one of the safest places. For me, it's also by far the most comfortable.
