Back in the days, NO ONE talked about appendix. More than 12ys ago. I carried a 1911 or a glock appendix. By necessity, not for fun. I still think it's a high risk carry method. I was trained at Gunsite many, many years ago. Finger discipline was a mantra. I spent countless hours dryfiring, when I was young. It paid big time. First shot here is 1.10. Slow by today standards but I still think a speed draw is bullshit. You need a PERFECT draw under great stress. I never, ever trained to impress anyone or to put holes in paper. It's a sad business. Really serious. And back in the days, I was a cigar smoker..
