    Please always have a written version of your articles. I don’t have sound for a couple of reasons and really dislike waiting on a talking head. My reading and comprehension speed is much higher for the written word than verbal.

      Joe, I understand what you’re saying. At this time it is cost prohibitive for us to transcribe the podcast episodes. So I am sorry that we do not have plans anytime soon to have a written version of the podcasts. We have tons of written editorial and articles available already on our site here. These podcasts are produced to satisfy a large audience that prefers audio content for various reasons, but many of them listen while they commute to work or while they’re working. Sorry I can’t be of more help.

    This podcast really has me rethinking appendix carry. I’m still fairly new to concealed carry (carrying about 4 years now) and was always apprehensive of appendix position because of all the goodies that are in that area (mainly the femoral). I currently carry IWB with a hybrid holster about 4:30 and it’s very comfortable and I can pretty reliably reach sub 1.5 second hits from concealment. Retention is decent, but definitely not great. At this point in my CC “walk”, I’m very comfortable with everything I’m doing from a safety aspect, which is kind of pushing me to explore now the appendix position. Hindsight, I would gain 3 things; better holster retention, a quicker draw, and a less vulnerable gun. Thanks for a great podcast and not doing a ton of back and forth between hosts banter that drives me crazy on other podcasts. Y’all tend to get right to the subject ( most of the time 😉

    P.S. Jacob’s laugh at 1:07:42 Ha!
