    I like to carry appendix alot of the time like when I'm at work. I am a pressman and on my feet all day with alot of leaning into my presses, bending, squating, etc. With all the bending over anything from 3 o'clock and back prints pretty bad. Appendix works great for these times, however I totally agree with semperfi.45 in relation to what the holster needs to work properly. I would buy one that meets the criteria.

    Thanks, everybody for the feed back and advice. I have one more question: It sounds like a lot of you are very specific about where the gun should be carried - would any of you mind taking a picture holding the firearm in the position you prefer for carry, to simulate how the holster would have to hold it? Thanks again,

    Jeff

    I'm rather rotund and can't appendix my P99 but I would buy an appendix carry for a PPS. I believe I could tolerate some minor discomfort while sitting for short periods of time. But I would like it to be easy to attach to my belt so I could slip it on after removing it. I drive quite a bit so easy removal and putting back on would be a big plus.

    I would love to just see some pics of the holster on the person. I just received my 2-O'clock from Comp-Tac and haven't quite found the "sweet spot". I really want to give this a try before returning for a CTAC or MTAC.

    I have a PM9 for the holster and so far, it's home (very comfortable home might I add) has been in my SmartCarry.

    Any pictures you fellas can offer are greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    In my opinion the EHUD rides too high. I like the grip of the pistol to almost rest on the top of the belt line. If it rides high like the EHUD you will experience difficulty bending over and sitting. If you are going to stand 24/7 it would not be a problem.

    That covers the ride height of the holster now lets talk cant. I have found that a straight drop with zero cant works well with most pistols, however, my M&P40c needs a little cant to be just right. I would say 10-12 degrees positive cant would be about right for me.

    I like the comptac 2-O'clock style. I think they should make different clips (length, cant, etc) and one could make it fit there personal needs and the ancillary income from clips would be a marketable business decision as well.

    With the right gun/holster it works great. I have carried appendix style for the last couple of years and love it for convenience.

    Looks great for some guys, but I think my tummy would shove the muzzle right where I wouldn't want it to be!
