Here is a video with information on Appendix Carry:
And some information about the Bisect modularity:
Appendix Carry: Appendix carry is carrying your pistol (or in this case, pistol + extra mag) up front, between the points of your hips. It is referred to as appendix carry because for a right handed shooter, the pistol often sits near the appendix. I tend to carry my full size pistols closer to the centerline of my body, a little left of my appendix. AIWB typically drops the trigger guard of the pistol completely below the belt line, requiring a "dig" with the thumb when drawing. The advantage of dropping the pistol lower is with both comfort and concealability; it helps keep short barreled pistols in tight to the body and reduces pressure on the abdomen when sitting or moving. AIWB is the practice of carrying this gear up front, and inside the waistband.
Who This Holster is For: Appendix carry isn't for everyone. It requires a certain physical build to be able to put gear under the belt up front. For those with a little "extra" there already, you may not have room for a pistol. Additionally, to carry AIWB, you should have strong muzzle awareness to minimize the chance of pointing your pistol at something you're not willing to destroy. Finally, trigger finger discipline is critical; you should never have your finger on the trigger until your sights are on target and you're ready to shoot. If you're comfortable with those things and if you are built to allow it, I believe AIWB is the most comfortable, concealable, accessible, secure, and convenient method of carry.
Safety: It is the user's responsibility to prevent a negligent discharge. However, the way I carry AIWB rarely (if ever) positions the pistol such that a discharge would cause major damage. I'm not an anatomy expert, but I do not believe I cover my femoral artery with the muzzle when standing or seated. Further, I work to make sure the pistol isn't pointing at other sensitive parts. Do your research on AIWB safety, and don't just listen to the commentary on the Internet.
Comfortable: I've been carrying for many years in a variety of positions. I always found inside the waistband carry uncomfortable because the pistol dug into my hip bone, and as a result, my normal carry was outside the waistband on the hip. Even this had some challenges, especially when driving for long spells in the car, where the seat bolsters would press the pistol into my side. AIWB puts the pistol up front where it is mostly pressing on soft tissue, reducing hot spots. It allows most people full mobility, from putting on shoes to running, without comfort issues.
Concealable: I don't know if it is due to the modern build of many men, or if people don't spend much time looking at my midriff, but people seldom know when I carry AIWB. Even those who are trained to look for a pistol often don't look for it there, or don't see any minor printing. I can wear even fairly tight shirts, untuck them, and maintain concealment.
Accessible: I challenge you to find a more accessible on-body carry for all of today's various demands. From walking down the street, to sitting in a chair, to driving, my AIWB pistol is accessible. Not only is it accessible, a simple sweep of the shirt is all I need to get on it and draw. It is very fast to go from concealed to on target. I will even train this way in classes. While in some cases slightly slower than those carrying openly, it allows me to fine tune my draw for how I carry 99% of the time. There is a reason competitors move their gear forward; it allows you to draw more quickly. AIWB allows smooth draws from positions that are a challenge when carrying on the hip. Even off-hand draw (for instance, for weak hand drills) are often faster and more secure (you can get a better grip on the pistol) when carrying AIWB.
Secure: It is important to maintain 360 degree awareness, but the reality is that we often do not. Whether eating, talking, or looking at a phone, it is possible a diversion in focus could allow someone to come up from us and disarm, especially when carrying further rear. It is much less likely for someone to come up from the front and remove your pistol because of this natural awareness. Further, if someone were to attempt it, you can put a lot of leverage on the pistol to prevent it from being drawn, either by your hand, or by curling your body in.
Convenient: Our AIWB solutions use simple one-way snaps to put on or take off. You don't have to thread your belt through to securely attach your holster to your belt. To put it on, insert the holster between your body and pants, and pull the clips over your belt, allowing them to hook it underneath. To remove, pull the hooks out slightly to clear the belt and pull up.
Whether you are experienced with AIWB, or believe it is something you want to try, the Bisect rig offers a great solution to carry your pistol and extra mag right up front where you need it. We mold the holster to wrap around your body to increase comfort and concealability. We also cant the mag carrier to provide a smoother draw. The Bisect rig can be molded to many full size or compact pistols, with or without lights or lasers.
Please be aware that pistol retention is somewhat lighter than our Origin holsters due to the design of the holster. Pressure from your body is usually sufficient to retain your pistol in nearly all circumstances. We've successfully ridden dirt bikes with this rig with no issues. * Note that patterned Kydex is not used on the body side portion of the holster. It is however used on the magazine carrier.
