Trigger Guard Devices are seen by some who carry in the appendix position as a minimalist great carry option. The Vanguard II is the most evolved design of this type and offers some very specific features including: a belt loop that holds the gun in a constant position and a fin which protrudes from the front for emergency removal. Understanding how to use this type of device will help you decide if trying it is right for you.
