I'm looking for a new Appendix carry holster. Does anyone have one of these?

I have a white hat holster but I can't wear it in the front I can only where it at 4:30, and my shirt always pulls up and gets stuck on the grip. I'm looking to see if there is a more comfortable way to carry in appendix.

Honestly If I were to carry, which I don’t. In fact I don’t own any guns. But if I did appendix would be in a Galco stow and go soft leather holster.

I appendix carry a Glock 26. I run a Galco Triton with Raven Concealment soft loops. I like their loops because they have the snaps from a police buckle. They only release when you pull them down from the top. You can tug the loop all you want and it won't come free.

what weapon you carrying? I only ask because there may be guys here that have drawers full of old holsters they don't use anymore that might be able to let you try something out before buying.

Interested as well. I think I miss a trick to appendix carry- gun digs into my leg when sitting even if a small 38 revolver. Seems a great location for the reasons op mentioned and in a car I would like to figure it out

I have a Bravo Concealment IWB and an Alien Gear IWB for my M&P compact.
I dislike them both but have come to the conclusion- out of those two - nothing is going to feel like it's not there- which is what I guess I'm after.

Prior to either of those I only front pocket carried an LCP so trying to conceal anything else leaves me missing not feeling the guns presence.

So while they are my only two I am currently using the Bravo Concealment at about 3 o'clock.
I'm starting to get more used to it, but am ready to go back to a thinner pistol when possible.

What do you not like about the Alien gear. I've been looking at that one too.

Itís padded, which is nice- but it lacks in the minimal department- which is where the Bravo excels in comparison.

Keep in mind Iím 5í9Ē (in my prime) and 175#, so trying to conceal hasnít been easy so far.
I fit good in a menís medium shirt- tucked in with no dun-flop, and have moved to a Large button up untucked to conceal the pistol and double mag pouch on my other hip (when carrying as a volunteer concealed security team member at church) so now I look like I borrowed some clothes from my big brother trying to hide a double stack pistol.
I also purchased pants 2Ē larger in the waist to help accommodate the IWB approach.

To be truthful I never really gave the alien gear a fair shot. Maybe I need to revisit that.

I use an alien gear for my ruger sr9c and it took me a while to like it, and playing with angles. Hated it for a while, until I found the perfect cant. Sometimes carry the full 17 rd mag loaded instead of the 10. Just blouse the shirt a bit when tucked, and drawany loose material to the sides. Thenonky holster anyone's noticed was my white hat holster just because the leather creaked and those giant clips stuck out.

Well I was about to order and alien gear for the gen 5 glock 17 but they don't make one yet so it looks like bravo concealment it is.

Although I have some IWB that are "comfortable" (tolerable) and didn't bother me, I switched to carrying OWB about 2 months ago and wish I would have done it sooner. You definitely know you are carrying a gun, but it is in no way uncomfortable.


Edit: OP check out JM Kydex. He has some quick ship stuff and the quality is excellent.

I canít say about appendix carry(gut), but I have several holsters and my Bravo Concealment it the best! I prefer it over my super tucker any day.

I carry a G43 & G19 in a Bravo DOS Torsion holster. Wear my G43 everyday. Great holsters. I use to wear a Comp-Tac but tried the Bravo. They have a 30 day trial (no questions asked) lifetime warranty.

No experience with Bravo Concealment but checkout these 2 from Redline Concealment and Renaissance Firearms. Both are great holsters and great companies. Redline is a firefighter owned company and Renaissance is a Texas based company.

I use the Bravo appendix carry and like it (it also doesn't have to be carried appendix style). Switched over to it from a white hat holster as well, and wont go back. I could never get the white hat to quite squeaking and the clips destroyed a few shirts. I've also tried a few different holsters my dad has. The alien gear, ramora, nat2 tactical, a couple other. I still like the bravo the best.

I got mine last week. I can't seem to find a comfortable position with it, maybe its just my build. I'm probably going to just return it for there OWB holster. After wearing the white hat I'm getting used to it. I just don't like how I have to keep holding my shirts down.

I ordered a premade renaissance holster that he had in stock. good quality for sure, and great customer service. These lead times are ridiculous in my opinion. 6weeks is short, I just don't see how it takes that long to stamp a piece of kydex. If they are selling that many holsters they need to hire some help. Every company seems that way though. guess you don't have to step up if all your competition is slacking too.
