I'm going to have to call you out on your comment.....

The length of a pistol makes a big difference if you appendix carry iwb. I carry Commander sized 1911's, Sig Carry model and Glock 30. All of them have similar length in slide/barrel (3.8-4.25 in barrels). If you were to add another inch to the length it would make a BIG difference on carrying for me. Now all my pistols neatly fit in the crease between my leg and my privates. Another inch would dig into my lower body.....not good.
