I carry this way, and I also find it easier to hide, and draw from the appendix (2 o'clock) position. Good article.

I can see were at the apendix location would be a definate advantage, but he is right about the size of the weapon. Only a compact would be advisable as a full size would just plain hurt to much.

I mainly carry mine at my 5 in my waist band...I cant get used to carrying at the appendix, just feels like I may shoot myself in the weiner!!!

Great read though. I may give it some more practice and see if I can adapt to it.

I won a quick draw contest from the appendix position this past weekend!

1.49 seconds from hand on head to 2 shots in a paper plate at 3 yards...
