    I tried AIWB carry for the first time today. I carried a Smith and wesson model 39-2 (4 inch barrel) in A bianchi 100 professional leather holster with high back and a buttoned up shirt. I was in the car and in Walmart for several hours with my wife (she is a slow shopper). Nobody noticed and it was the most comfortable carry I have tried. I normally cary IWB at four o'clock position and sometimes OWB with a blackhawk leather CQC. I think I will carry AIWB using my Bianchi holster more often.

    I recently made the switch to appendix carry with a J Frame. I tried it a couple of times with my G26 but I have a mental barrier of carrying a semi auto appendix. I'm still searching for the perfect holster. I'd like to find a straight drop with an offset belt clip as the ones I keep finding the belt clip sits on the revolvers cylinder and creates a little extra bulk.

    My preferred AIWB is a custom Crossbreed Supertuck Deluxe that I trimmed down and put velcro clips on. But, I do use a cheap grab & go Blackhawk or UM's as well.

    One thing to be aware of when it comes to cheap nylon holsters is the tendency to ride up & out of your waistband. To combat this problem I placed a piece of Velcro on the outside of the clip and put Velcro on my belts. Now I can prevent or at least greatly curtail the "riding" up & out issue with nylon holsters. It also allows me to adjust cant & ride height.

    Another problem is going to the john & holstering. If you use a nylon holster, DO NOT try to holster while inside the waistband. You need to place the firearm in the holster first then put the holster in place. Whenever I go to the restroom & have to remove my firearm, I remove the holster & firearm as ONE single unit. Then, I place the whole thing back in place as one unit when I'm done. (This helps prevent your booger hook from accidentally hitting the bang switch.)

    Soft sided nylon, leather or thin Kydex holsters with no reinforced mouth openings are not ideal for appendix carry if you practice and train with many repetitions.

    I now prefer using a appendix holster that has a "extra tuck" feature on it or attached to it. The wedge at the bottom of the holster creating the "extra tuck" can be a bulge made into the Kydex molding or can be a attached foam wedge. This feature helps in several ways. It pushes the bottom of the holster further off the body and causes the top of the gun to be tucked into the stomach just a little more than usual. It also helps facilitate a safer re-holster by having the holster bottom pointed off your body while sliding the gun back in the holster.

    Examples of "extra tuck" features. These are AIWB holsters made by JM Custom Kydex.

    You might want to take a look at these holsters... Inexpensive but serve the purpose...... Also for the cost it doesn't to try them(money wise)... I am using there tuckable one for my S&W 642 J frame appendix carry and works fine for me..........
