It does depend greatly what your CC'n as to IF you can carry in an appendix position. I CC a CW9 but in a leather/kydex rig just infront of my hip bone. Handgun is carried as high as needed to set and drive in a Comp-Tac Minotuar Neutral. Easy on the skin, very flexable, narrow design and very adustable. Anyhpw what I or someone else likes my not work for you. trial and error is the only way to know for sure. Depending on your handgun check out there 2 O'Clock and Infidel holsters for just Kydex. For what its worth the leather backing helps to soft the edges again your body for front side carry.
