One of the advantages of the “appendix carry” position is that you can draw your defensive firearm with either hand. In this video, Rob Pincus goes through the steps of presenting from the appendix position with your weak hand and the best ways to practice. Drawing with your weak hand can present more opportunities for accidental discharge of your firearm.

This is a skill that could save your life in an extreme worst case scenario situation.
