Looking to change up my carry setup... What holsters do you guys use to carry your G36/19/26 etc in the appendix position?

this will do nicely

it is the most adjustable one

I like the j-hook

I carry a G19 AIWB daily. I use a CCC Shaggy, JM Custom AIWB and a JRC CDA-AIWB. Also take a look at Dark Star Gear.

I just tested out a bladetech IWB kydex with pull-dot loops and it seems to work well in this position. I have the G17 model so it will work with all 3 of my Glock 9's. I have found this is the easiest way for me to conceal my Glocks-- still don't really care for having a loaded chamber pointed at my leg when sitting. I much prefer stong-side carry in a OWB holster- just alot harder to conceal.

I use and love the milt sparks VM2 holster for my G36. It fits perfectly and the leather is top quality.

I don't get what the rage is about appendix carry but if I did, it would be in a Ted Blocker IWB Concealment Holster (http://www.tedblockerholsters.com/product.cfm?pi=5CB09456-E050-58E7-E3A5660C3854227E).

I have one for my Sig P228 which also works great with my G36. :)

Mike, when you are built like a coat rack I can understand why appendix

might not be for you.

You could hide a 12 gauge under a tee shirt:wavey:

I would have trouble hiding a slim jim.

If I did carry appendix-style, the holster would be KEVLAR! Can never be too careful.

I like Remora holsters because you can easily adjust how deep in the waistband you carry to fit the circumstance. For example, driving to work, it's a lot more comfortable to have the muzzle barely bast the bottom of my belt, then shift it down for good concealment as I step out of the car.

That's why I carry Glocks (in a good holster) - I'm not worried it's going to fire unless I pull the trigger.

I currently use a Comp-Tac 2 O'Clock. I've tried the Archangel from Dale Fricke and the Raven ACR. The Comp-Tac is more comfortable, and the clip allows for easy on and off, yet provides sufficient stability.

I'm also looking for another aiwb holster and have a question about the Fist holster linked above..... I can't see the back of the holster.....is there a sweat guard? Does the back of the holster extend and cover the back of the slide? It appears from the picture that the holster doesn't protect the sights from bumps...

I like the High-Noon Mr. Softy for appendix carry.
Leather just feels better against my skin.
The Mr. Softy has the lowest ride of any holster I have found so far. It is a straight drop with only the pistol grip sitting above my belt.

The long kydex 'sweat guard' on the Comp-Tac 2 o'clock digs in to my stomach. I didn't like it. Additionally it rides high(er), showing more print and allowing the weight of the gun to lean away from the body. The 2 o'clock does allows for a better grip when drawing.

although I have had one for my j-frame and 27 for some time and they have their uses, I need a holster with some kind of hook up to my belt.

I'm with you on the Mr. Softy for all the same reasons. I did have to change out the clip, it was to hard to remove.

I use the desantis sof tuck to carry my 26 at the 2 oclock position. I don't really think its the best out there, but I didn't want to spend a lot because I wasnt sure if I wanted to carry there. I think I paid like 20 bucks on amazon, and I do like it, and i think it's worth what I paid. My biggest complaint is that I wish the firmer leather that they put at the top of the holster continued around the trigger guard area too. I tried to use it for idpa but it was hard to reholster when the edges would fold over.

I have started carrying my G33 in a Galco Tuck-n-Go, and love it. The Remora was nice for ease of taking off and on quickly; however, I was always nervous that it would flop out onto the floor. I need a concealed appendix holster that has zero chance of exposure. I think I have found it in the Galco.

As stated somewhere above i too do not understand the current rage of appendix carry. Why do people carry like this? Isn't it near impossible to sit down? Someone also eluded to being skinny as the reason. I am skinny and I've not had trouble concealing at 5 o'clock. Im not arguing against this style of carry just hoping someone can enlighten me.

I am built stout (to put it mildly) and I so far prefer appendix carry and usually with a MIC holster also. I also do Desantis and Uncle Mikes, but the MIC holster from Glocktech adds zero width and is easy to use.

In my case, easy access, does not ever print (I always wear my shirts out) and it is comfortable. To me I've tried many other methods and they always at some time print.

Can you sit down? It seems to me that that would be fairly uncomfortable.

Sitting is no issue if you have the right holster in the right position.

As I said earlier, your never going to get the comfort and concealment the guy's who rave about AIWB without a true, dedicated AIWB holster. These straight drop IWB's with a clip don't cut it. You need something designed with a wedge to tuck the butt of the gun in for concealment.

You can lean over without printing. People don't generally stare "there". You can reach it in the car. That said I love the Alabama holster hooker for my g36. Bob

Now see, I'm the exact opposite from you........I just don't understand how Anyone can carry behind the hip at 3:30-4:00.... I tried that years ago when I first started carrying and it felt like I was sitting on a brick, plus access to the pistol just takes too long. I experimented with different positions and found appendix carry the best for me. I won't go into the advantages to appendix carry....if you're curious, just do a search on the internet and you'll find plenty of discourse on the advantages of this kind of carry vs behind the hip. One misconception about appendix carry is the muzzle digging into your leg. It doesn't happen with many appendix holsters since they sit higher on the beltline allowing easy, full grip of the firearm and keeping the muzzle in the crease between the upper leg and the abdomen. I favor "Commander" sized weapons and they fit my body perfectly.

Everyone has a spot on their beltline where they find carry to be the most comfortable. It's a very personal thing and everyone is different as to what they prefer.

While Christmas shopping "for my wife", on Amazon.com, I found the "Glock Saf-T-Block", so... I did a little Christmas shopping for myself. Back when I was a cop, I carried a Sig, and was always a bit hesitant with the Glocks, but this block allows me to carry one in the chamber with good peace of mind. it is designed so a small luggage lock can be put in it for home storage, but the tab may be cut off if you carry in a holster that is designed and molded to use the trigger guard as part of the retention. It pushes out very quick, and doesn't slow down firing time.

Sure....most are straight drop with no cant. You can get low ride aiwb holsters, but for me they make getting a firing grip difficult. I've tried several but have pretty much settled on the Dale Fricke Archangel. The Archangel allows a full combat grip of the pistol and it's made of kydex. I prefer kydex since I usually carry under a t-shirt, against the skin. Down here in Texas, the summers are quite hot and I don't like how leather holsters absorb sweat.

waiting on a Don Hume for my G36 to try this method of carry. I really like how the Comp-Tac 2o'clock looks but not sure if I wanna spend the money just yet. Plus I figure leather is probably more comfortable than plastic in that area. I will report back ASAP

I use my tommy thesis with my 26. I carry around 12-1 oclock. Not saying its the best, but it works for me. I even wear it with basket ball shorts, I tighten the draw string on the shorts and good to go. I'm not comfortable wearing the remora with basketball shorts. I would be interested in a picture of some of these apendix style holsters.
