View Full Version : Appendix Inside the waist holster

Hello everybody. I've been experimenting with various holster configurations and have concluded that an AIWB rig would be the best way for me to conceal a pistol. I've been searching around the web and have narrowed it down to two AIWB rigs. I think AIWB is gaining in popularity partly because of Todd green at and other pistol gurus. Anyway I'll put up the links for the two holsters to see if anybody has any feedback on the performance of these holsters.

first is cane and derby's new PIC, practical internal carry-

Next is the Archangel by Dale Fricke-

Thanks folks

I use the Dale Fricke Archangel when occasionally carrying my Glock 27 AIWB. I like it for it's dual belt loops with one way snaps, ride height which allows a full firing grip and it's ability to adjust the retention. Quality is good and the wait time is short. Mr. Fricke is personable and knowledgeable when discussing his holsters on the phone.

If you get a chance, buy a CCC Shaggy. This is the standard by which all others are measured.

There is a long running AIWB thread as well as a long running AIWB holster picture specific thread here:

Hope this helps.

I don't think C&D and SCW are the same. SCW is known for his K-25.

My long and expensive holster hunt ended with the purchase of my Archangel.

No experience with the other holster mentioned. No reason to try it. Good luck AIWB is the best.

I really like my Comp-tac

Comptac 2 o clock has great potential in my opinion, but that huge sight channel cut out on the holster adds way too much size and discomfort.

I like most thing's Comp Tac, but the 2 o'clock is the worst excuse for a AIWB holster i've tried.

Thanks for the links guys.

I've been tossing around the idea of going appendix carry and this definitely helps me see what's out there in terms of AIWB holsters.

Was interested in the C&D PIC system but there's no option for the Glock 36 so I've moved on to Kolbeson and Dale Fricke.

I've got an ArchAngel inbound for my G38. I had one for my G26, but it wasn't as stanble as I wanted ( shorter grip most likely). I'm definately gonna wedge the outside belt loop to tuck the butt in more though. The C&D look's like a better option though. I would recommend avoiding the 2 o'clock though.

I'm going to order an ArchAngel as well as a Cane & Derby.....

I frequent and there's a thread in regards to the lengthy lead time on C&D holsters.

Either way I'll have to very good holsters. Just not sure which one will show first.

Arch Angel and a Zack get my vote every time.

My 2 cts, I've carried IWB for 2 year, I've just gone to 3:15, and reached 2 conclusions. 1) never will I use kydex for an IWB HOLSTER, let alone one that presses into my groin. 2) appendix carry is better suited for thin yet soft bellied persons.

Ravens new Vangaurd-2 available for pre-order now. It looks like a great way to carry appendix.

Look at the Remora holsters. You can use one AIWB or anywhere you choose because its clipless.

Just an update to my post about ordering the Archangel.

I figured a 3-4 week wait and was prepared to wait longer.

It took 8 days from ordering to receiving my Archangel for my G36.

After wearing it for 3 days I am hooked on AIWB.
