Welcome and glad you're here!
Afraid I won't be trying appendix carry for a good long while.
It'll take me a good long while to lose enough gut to make it work!
(I'm working on it ...)

I also carry a Kahr P9 in a Neutral Cant MTAC from Comp-Tac
And I just started trying out a Dale Fricke Archangel from OneSourceTactical.com with a G19.
I switched to AIWB from 3:30-4:00 about 8 to 9 months ago. I was transitioning to carry that way while losing 25 pounds. AIWB is not very comfortable with a gut. Since losing the weight, carrying appendix is more comfortable than behind the hip and quicker to draw IMO. I like it, and can't see going back. YMMV.
I don't know, my appendix got cut out years ago.
I'm a big fan of AIWB carry. I love it on these cold days when I can wear a sweater at work to cover it. I only wish I could find a way to wear it tucked and totally hidden so I could wear it year round, but that position shows too much bulge without a draping cover garment. Here's the holster I made for my S&W 908 that I appendix carry.
Mine: Glock 36............Wife's: Ruger SP101 3"

-------S&W SW99 .45.............Charter Arms Undercover

This position is great when walking around, but how do you keep the barrel from poking your leg when you sit down?

I was the same way before I started AIWB, asking how could this work and be comfortable. It just works.
