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

    I have used the Fist kydex clip-on for years.

    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.

    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.

    I'm a big minimalist fan for appendix carry as I'm not of large stature. I love my MIC from GlockTech.

    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.

    Does nothing to hide the gun.

    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 carry a G17 at the 11 o'clock position with NO holster.
