    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!

    Try Raven holsters, I have used an ACR for about a year now for both a Glock 19 and FS MnP9.

    I like that holster and have heard some good reviews. It will probably be the next AIWB holster I buy. In the mean time, I carry AIWB with my Springfield 1911 in a Dale Fricke Joab.



    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'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"
    -------Ruger SR9....................Ruger SR9c
    -------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?

    It takes a good holster with no cant as close to the midline as possible. It is best done with a gun with a 4 inch barrel or less, but really depends on your body type. With the set ups I have and the gun at about 1:00, the barrel sits right where my leg and pelvis bend while sitting down. My guns don't stick me in the leg and they are very easy to draw while seated. The other nice thing is that there is no gun hitting the chair or lying against my back.

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