Some of our most popular and innovative products are made for appendix carry. We get asked all the time, “Why would you want to wear a gun in front which is so dangerous and/or uncomfortable?”  Well, the purpose of this article is to outline the benefits and dangers of appendix carry so you won’t have to ask that question anymore. So fasten your seat belts, grab your favorite cat, and settle down.

NOTE: Appendix carry shall be referred to as A-C for the rest of the article.

DANGERS

As long as you have high standards of trigger control and are disciplined in your training, you can safely holster and unholster your firearm without blasting yourself in the groin every morning when you put your appendix holster on. Proper trigger control is PARAMOUNT if you wish to carry a firearm safely, whether appendix, strong side, ankle, or small of the back. If you can’t keep your finger off the trigger when you’re not supposed to fire, you shouldn’t be carrying a firearm anywhere on your body.  Or at all, really.Obviously this is the first consideration.  As you draw or holster the weapon, you’re aiming the firearm at important body parts and possibly a femoral artery. While we like to avoid flagging our body parts whenever possible, A-C can be done safely as long as we observe one of the most important principles of firearm safety: keep your finger off the bang switch till you’re ready to fire.
