Default IWB holster recommendations for Kahr PM9

Looking for recommendations for IWB holster for Kahr PM9. I'm right handed, but I'll be using this cross draw.

One I've found so far are:

Alien holsters: http://aliengearholsters.com/kahr-pm-9-iwb-holster.html

N82 Tactical professional: https://n82tactical.com/product/prof...al-kahr-pm-cm/

Leaning towards the N82 Tactical for the adjustability.


Thanks.

P.S. Please don't turn this into a cross draw debate. I know what I'm looking for and why.

Looks like out of the two you have listed, the N82 is the only one that works crossdraw.

I've got a Crossbreed MiniTuck, and love it, but am carrying strong side. I trimmed mine down to where it barely covers the gun, and also put a piece of moleskin. Both made it much more comfortable to carry.

Thanks man. Appreciate the feedback and the tip about using the piece of moleskin.

I won't bring up the Cross Draw issue as long as I can make fun of choosing a Kahr

Check this out. Very Comfortable

Easy now. Whatcha got against Kahr? To be fair, had the G43 been out when I bought mine that's what would be in my holster.

Carry a Glock 43 (built very similarly to Khar in regard to edges). Carry in remora tuckable. Absolutely love the fact I can carry IWB and tuck my shirt in. Used a remora with a Nano as well. Very affordable. Good videos on Youtube.

You should make the cross-drawing guy from Pennsyltucky a deal on the Kahr and get a Walther PPS M2 while there is a $100 rebate on them. Really nice SS9 with 3 different magazine choices (the 7&8 round you can get 3 fingers on) and a decent trigger (unlike the G43).

I want to not like the Kahr, but it shoots and carries too good. I added the Pierce finger extension on one mag which I use when IWB, and have a second without it that I use occasionally for pocket carry (rare). Spare mag that I carry front weak side pocket in a mag pouch is an 8 round. If I were to buy today and didn't already have experience with it, I probably wouldn't have given it consideration. Having carried it daily now for about 5 years, I'm happy to the point that I'm not considering anything else. That Walther does look nice though.

Obviously I'm kidding. It's nice that there are so many choices

The Walther has one of the better off the shelf triggers which is what convinced me over the G43, but clearly Glock guys would chose the G43 since they have no eye for beauty or know what a good trigger is (counting down for a Cracker comment)

The irony is I bought the PM9 to be a pocket gun. And now I'm looking for a IWB holster.

I like the Kahr PM9 as a carry gun because of it's small size for a 9mm.

Yep. I think they were the first sub-compact SS9 and as such sold pistols to a lot of folks that typically would not have given them a 2nd glance. Now they seem to have a loyal following

I'm an H&K guy and since they have not realized the SS9 CC market is red hot I had to find another choice, I like the Walther based on the larger grip size (7&8 round mag) and the trigger

Great to have choices

That was my scenario as well. At the time I bought it, my daily attire was khaki pants and a tucked in polo. Even though I can, I don't find it to be comfortable or easy to draw carrying inside waistband with a tucked in shirt. Also had a tendency to print a bit much, which was important at the time as the company I was working for had no guns on premises policy. I ignored the policy, but could not afford to print at all due to it. When wearing khaki pants with the pockets, the car disappears as long as you use a Ramora or sticky holster as a pocket holster.

Fast forward to today and my attire is jeans and a T-shirt during the winter, or khaki shorts and a T-shirt during the summer. Does not matter if I tuck in my shirt or not. With my shirt untucked, I much prefer inside waistband carry.

Curious why if shirt is untucked why not OWB ?

Is it an issue where you are if your firearm is visible accidentally (bend down, reach up, etc.) ?

Keeps me from having to wear a long tail shirt, which to me looks goofy as hell and it is uncomfortable. Specifically on the crossbreed, with the way I wear it, itis actually easy to draw from while seated in my truck. The outside waistband holsters that I have tried shift the butt of the gun to the rear, making it a lot more difficult to draw from a seated position inside of a vehicle.

https://www.crossbreedholsters.com/ I forget it's on. Horsehide option doesn't get deformed by wear or sweat.

Forgot about mentioning horse hide. Mine is as well. I don't know it would be if any real benifit for OWB, but its characteristic of forming to you make it very comfortable. Only downside is while it is forming to your side for the first week or two, it's not so great. Worth it though.

Have a look at the Comp-Tac options. www.comp-tac.com.

Looks like the MTAC will work for your gun. I love mine. Carry a Glock 19 in an MTAC, and couldn't be happier. It's about 9 years old now, and still works great.

I tried a CTAC originally, but the kydex could dig in if I needed to remove the gun to go into somewhere that I couldn't carry.

The MTAC is basically a CTAC with leather where it contacts your body. They also have a Spartan, which is an MTAC with a bit less leather. Single layer in some areas instead of double.

The CTAC, MTAC, and Spartan offer a ton of adjustments so you can position it just where you like it.
