    My Kahr MK9 is short enough for comfortable appendix carry (say, 1:30-ish) if I'm wearing an untucked shirt or a sweater over a shirt. If I have a tucked-in shirt and a jacket, I carry it at about 4-4:30.

    VM-II at about 1630 to get the grip against my back so it doesn't print as badly.
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    3:30 to 4:00. I'm interested in appendix carry, but haven't tried it yet.

    Yeah---3:30 or four o'clock. G27 in an Uncle Mike's nylon holster with clip. I've also used this IWB S.O.B. style, but not comfortable at all.

    I ordered a custom tuckable for appendix carry. It will have a reverse/negative FBI cant and will have the clip offset from the gun to keep it a bit thinner. I'm not sure how comfortable this will be sitting, but I think I can position it so it will be. I just hope I don't shoot my nuts off.

    Fist k-8 kydex at 1:30 (appendix carry)

    Morintp, Appendix carry is more to the right of your "nuts" shouldn't be a problem but watch out for your femoral artery.

    It really depends on the holster brand you have (I think). Example, my VMII fits well at 3:30. While my Sparks SSII is more comfortable at 4:30.

    Full size 1911, G&G IWB, about 4:00 with enough cant to keep the butt from digging into my pickup seat.

    When I need it to absolutly not print or concealed with very light clothes, I wear a 3 inch 1911 at about 4:30 in a very thin VMII style holster from Southern holsters. Any other time I wear a Government model in a VMII or similar type holster just behind my hip at 3:30. I am 5'10", 180 lbs and a 31" waist.
