If the pistol is a short-slide handgun, a conventional IWB may be used in the appendix carry. This is a holster worn in front of the body, to one side of the belt buckle. For those who have suffered a shoulder injury and have limited movement, the appendix carry is useful. For others the position is simply preferred.
