IS AP­PEN­DIX CARRY FOR YOU?

Concealed Carry Hand Guns - - EXPERT’S CORNER -

Whether you carry a Glock 43 or other pis­tol, one of the most im­por­tant con­sid­er­a­tions is how you carry it. Ap­pen­dix carry is a method con­tro­ver­sial to some and I was slow to adopt it. Your body shape and height has much to do with the com­fort and con­ceal­ment as­pects. The in­her­ent dan­ger is point­ing the muz­zle of a loaded firearm in the di­rec­tion of the femoral artery or the fam­ily jew­els. To be safe in this man­ner, you need to prac­tice your draw stroke and your re-hol­ster­ing a lot more than if you carry else­where on the waist. I ad­mit that it is not for ev­ery­body, but it is worth a try. If it is com­fort­able and con­ceal­able for you, con­tinue to work at it. I be­lieve in most cir­cum­stances it is one of the fastest ways to get your con­cealed pis­tol into ac­tion.
