There was a pretty good read the other day over at TTAG about the subject of appendix carry. If you didnt see it then you should really go give it a read. In it Zack talks about appendix carry and why he is now a convert.
I personally think that appendix carry has a lot of good things going for it. I know that a lot of people are not too fond of that particular gun positioning, but as Zack points out the benefits are numerous. Like Zack, I fell in love with appendix carry a while back out of the necessity that comes along with having small kids. Bending over to deal with and carrying small children can make carrying concealed a real challenge… one that appendix carry deals with nicely.
Now that my kids are getting a little bit older I more often than not am carrying in a more traditional behind the hip position, but there are still a bunch of times when appendix carry is very useful… in fact, aside from times when I am having to do a lot of sitting, there are not many time when appendix carry cant represent a fine solution for concealed carry.
If you havent tried it, you should. Get past the idea that a gun is point at your junk. They dont just magically discharge, and besides… a gun that is holstered is by definition “safe”.
