    Appendix carry holster. Which works best for you?

    I'm considering switching to appendix carry. So far I've bought an Alien Gear Shape Shift Appendix holster. After wearing it for only a short time in the house I'm not impressed. Too bulky and doesn't conceal well under tighter fitting shirts, which I thought the was the big draw for appendix carry. I do realize that drawing from this position is supposed to be faster, and after a little practice it does seem a little faster. I'm just not sold yet. And the gun is pointing at my femoral artery. Anyway after too long of a post I'm curious which holster works best for any of you? By the way I will be carrying a Glock 27 in this holster.

    I own both a Vedder Light Tuck and a JM Custom Kydex. I prefer the JM Custom Kydex. You have more options with how it attaches to your belt. I feel the soft loops on the JM causes it to hang on the belt better, i.e., it does not tilt and it also is more secure.

    Welcome to the forum, eatfire, from California. Glad to have you aboard. I have been experimenting with aiwb carry, and the LightTuck is thus far what works for me with a small to medium sized weapon.

    I carry a G26 and after trying a bunch of single clip and minimalist design AIWB holsters, I finally found carry bliss with the T-Rex Arm Sidecar. I use the one for the G19 because I feel the extra length (only a 1/2") helps keep the grip from tilting out away from the body.

    For smaller firearms, nothing beats a galco stow and go

    For larger ones, nothing beats a JMCK with a wedge.

    Your mileage may vary.

    I use a Black Dog holster with both my LC9s and M&Pm2 compact.

    I really like the Black Arch Protos for appendix carry.

    I went with this from Craft Holsters for my Redhawk. Very comfortable, even with the Ruger being a large frame revolver. Price was great also.

    I typically carry OWB for comfort purposes.

    When I do go IWB - I use a Side Guard minimal clip leather holster.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm going to send my Alien Gear back, just doesn't work for me. Nice design, I like the construction just doesn't work like I'd like it to. I do like the Hybrid holsters for comfort, although I've yet to try a full kydex holster so I have no idea if it will be comfortable to me. With the price of most of the holsters mentioned it's a relatively big decision.

    My favorite is the Bladetech Klipt believe it or not. I actually have a JMCK AIWB holster for sale that fits an M&P 2.0 Compact brand new for $70 if anyone is interested.

    I just got this flexible Tier 1 "AGIS" AIWB holster w/magazine carrier in and I'm digging it so far. Give it a try:

    HK USP Compact .45 stainless HK USP Compact .40 stainless HK USP Compact .45
    HK USP Compact 9mm HK 45c HK P30 HK P30sk HK VP9 HK VP9sk
