CCW illustrations?

Is there a place where someone who has never CCW'd before can go an look at pictures or diagrams showing the different options and carry positions? I hear a lot of terms and frankly, I don't know what they all mean. I know what IWB and OWB mean, but not sure on all of the positions.... 3 o'clock, appendix, etc. I need to get educated on this, and pictures or diagrams would be most helpful.

Thanks in advance!

Holster maker High Noon's "Question's" section is one of the best places for holster and carry information.

Does this guy ever sit down? I can't imagine how he could without crushing his twig and berries. :neener:

I carry at 1:00 often (not as much as at 3:30), and I can tell you that sitting is not a problem at all. The barrel just follows along your leg.

To me, "crushing" my goods isn't nearly as big a concern as "pointing a gun" at my goods for hours at a time. For that reason, I occasionally consider scrapping appendix carry altogether. But with the right holster, it's extremely convenient. I can put my CCO there in a Desbiens AIWB in about 5 seconds when it's time to run out for a dog walk. Getting the same gun properly situated at 3:30 in a VM2 can easily take a whole minute out of my day. :)

I have appendix carried a small snubbie in a quality holster almost everyday for at least a decade. I still have all my man parts.
