The problem with "Appendix Carry" is that the shot heard around your apartment isn't going into your foot; it's going into the parts you love the best.
Like, the blood-spurty parts.
You know what the warnings are, I won't repeat them.
Except: DO NOT DO THAT SHIT!
Why are you trying the oh-so-chic carry method, anyway?
Is it to keep the bad guys from shooting you? And what does it gain you, if you shoot yourself?
Geez .. the bad guys might have given you a "Flesh Wound". But guess what? These are the worst kind of wounds: the soft tissue, the blood-carrying tissue; the kind that kill you..
We should learn something from this.
But we probably won't.
