The Appendix Carry has grown in popularity in recent years as more people are interested in concealed carry.
First of all, what is appendix carry? For those that are new to concealed carry, hearing the terms for all of the different carry positions can be overwhelming and confusing. Appendix carry is where you place the firearm and the holster inside the waistband, on the front of the body. Typical placement is between the pocket and the button on your pants, close to the anatomical position of your appendix, hence the name.
