    I carry a EMP appendix carry in a Tucker Urban Impact. I am of slim build, Wt of 170, 6'. It is very comfortable BUT you get a little rubb, when you set for a long period of time, in the crease of your leg. It is like starting to wear glasses and behind the ear rub. If you wear pleated pants and have a good gun belt, it is GREAT to conceal. The EMP is one SWEET firearm.

    Can't even think of appendex carry...too fat, but IWB at 5:00 with a palm out draw has proved to be very comfortable and an effective means of concealment.

    As far as small carry rigs go, I can carry my Kahr PM9 (or CW9, both the same size) all day and forget it's there. Works great in the summer with shorts. I carry IWB at about 3:00 (there's a little space right behind the hip bone that the Kahr just settles in).

    Appendix carry worked great for me: Colt New Agent/ Comp-tac 2 O'Clock when that was my rig.

    It's my favorite way to carry my Kimber Ultra. I use a Raven Concealment Systems Appendix Carry rig. It is very thin and so comfortable that after a while I forget it's there.

    Try something like a High Noon Split Decision (at 3:00) and you won't even notice you have a gun on your side. The EMP completely disappears under even polo shirts tucked in.

    I don't appendix carry and probably never will . . .

    I appendix carry my Springfield Ultra Compact very comfortably in an Andrews MacDaniel II. This is my preferred carry method with compact pistols.
