    You are going to find a whole bunch of holsters labeled as Appendix Carry Holsters, that are nothing more than zero degree cant IWB holsters. A zero degree cant holster may or may not work for a small CCW firearm, but will not be optimal, and won't conceal the grip of a service sized pistol or revolver.

    You will be better off saving for the correct gear, rather than buying a less expensive AIWB in name only, that doesn't work well.

    There is a reason the highly rated AIWB holsters are more expensive than the standard Kydex offerings.

    For a j frame sized gun, I use a Relentless Tactical Ultimate Suede holster for AIWB. The clip is all the way up at the top of the holster, so only the grip is exposed. The gun is well hidden and easily accessible with nothing more than a regular t-shirt over it.

    Appendix Carry - Does anyone do it?

    I've gained some weight but I was big when I started to carry AIWB. Texas laws really don't penalize printing. I can honestly say that in most tees I wear, you can see my G17 if your looking for it. If I'm wearing a Magellan fisherman's button down untucked. You'll never notice it. But in 5 years I've never been called out for carrying. (As soon as I can get a new holster for my G26 with a +2 magazine. That will be one totally undetectable EDC to the naked eye)

    Clinger Holsters are reasonable, but they have discontinued their Atom. I have a Cry Havoc Grim that I carry everyday.

    I use one from Black Rhino for my Shield. I have tried AIWB with my Px4 45 in a belly band. It worked, but was not very comfortable. If I was to carry a double stack pistol I'd get one from DC member mathew03 (Appalachian Concealment)

    I know little on the subject so I'll speak at length.

    If you have an excuse for failure, you will.

    ^^ thank you, that is very kind.

    I've been held up on a restart of Appalachian due to my main career. When my employer straightens out our vendors and I can work normal hours again.... oh, I'll be so happy.

    Yes !!! you just have to find the right holster .
    I would say try a few of them . I carry a glock 23 appendix with a conceal express holster and it bothers sometimes because i have grit talon grips so sometimes it rubs (only if driving ). but for me appendix is the way to go ...

    If I'm carrying all day, I'll use a bianchi suppression holster at the 3:30 to 4:00 position...But when I'm home, I'll transfer to my appendix holster and keep it on the kitchen counter. Makes it very convenient to grab and clip on, if I'm just making a quick trip to the store or something of that nature

    Just recently started experimenting, looking for a better option as the weather gets warmer... Trial runs with a Glock 19 as well as a Shield 45 in a deSantis Inside Heat holster. Very happy with the way it fits, hides, and rides; now to get more serious about practicing presentation from this mode...

    GUARDIAN INSIDE THE WAISTBAND HOLSTER - MATTE BLACK - Badger Concealment

    This is how I carry my Walther PPS. Your XDs should carry very much the same.
    The key, however is to have a quality gun belt with enough lateral stiffness to support the weight of a pistol and possibly a reload.

    This is the one I use for my Shield. Very comfortable for me and super easy on/off. For $28, it's hard to find a better holster at the price.

    Some of the Shops I have been to have a box full of used Holsters. They let customers look through them pick what they want and sell them cheap.

    I do not Apendix carry but I have. Its comfortable but I just worry about shooting my femoral artery or my favorite male appendage. I know finger placement and and all the weapon safety spiel but still for me I'm more comfortable with hip carry only for those two reasons.

    @GreenMan0352 if one plans on shooting oneself, then 3:00 is probably a less severe wound (glute, outer quad, claf, ankle ). The goal is to not shoot oneself, so as you stated, proper holster technique will keep you safe.
