    I know appendix carry is popular, but man I train a lot to make sure I don't ever cover my body with the muzzle of my gun. Now I realize in some situations that is gonna happen and I may sweep myself (say from a shoulder holster) but this form of carry points the muzzle directly at you leg/femoral artery. Seems like an avoidable accident looking for a place to happen. And the reason I am so adamant about it is that even if you shoot yourself in the femoral artery in a hospital parking lot, you still have a good chance of bleeding out before they can save you.

    I prefer to keep my j frame in my pocket or IWB at 8:30 (I'm also a lefty). Appendix carry doesn't work ror me because of my fat gut.

    I had the same thought, but settled on the idea that a good holster will avoid the problem. If I would worry about that, I should worry about my gun going off all the time.

    Well said! A good holster is the key to all concealed carry......for AIWB I use High Noon Public Secrets, Alessi Talon Plus, and HBE Slim Pro......all are very comfortable, conceal well and are safe!

    I carry a 640 in a Sideguard Minimalist holster. 0 degree cant and works well in the 10-11:00 position (lefty).

    Taurus 617 in a Theis at 1:00 with about 5-10 degrees rearward (outward) cant. Not the most comfortable position, bit I can get to it quick if I need to, and that's the most comforting...
