      1. Sorry, I have to agree with Sean and Weer’d Beard on this one. Mexican carry (as I have always understood the term) is ‘no holster, inside the waistband, regardless of position.’

        Appendix carry is ‘in a holster, in front, right side, over the appendix (and uncomfortable as can be when sitting–at least for me)’

        The big no-no of Mexican carry is the lack of holster. Personally, I don’t care where someone carries it on their body, that’s a comfort and concealability issue. If they are happy with it up front, go for it.

        I also don’t care how they carry it, openly or concealed, that’s a personal issue with regards to rights, educating the public, and how much they want to deal with questions, police, and condition yellow. (Not to say that concealed carry folks should feel less aware of their surroundings or anything like that!)

        I do think everyone ought to carry in a holster that covers the trigger. That’s a safety issue. I don’t think there ought to be a law requiring it, though. It’s just common sense.

  1. I’ve tried appendix carry (IWB holster just right of the belt buckle) and it was very uncomfortable. It was also nearly impossible to sit down. I carry at 4:00 o’clock both IWB and OWB. It’s a lot more comfortable and I find it easier to draw.

    1. Something about the idea of muzzling my wedding tackle, especially with a SAO pistol in Condition 1, just doesn’t sit well with me.

  2. You can slap all the lipstick you want on that pig, it is still Mexican Carry.

    Just because the Mexican comes with accessories, it does not become Mongol.
