I carry my secondary LCP in my left pocket in a #6 holster from Jim at www.hiddenholsters.net. I've never had the mag come loose.

Sounds like a holster problem. I've never experienced that with my LCP and I use an RKBA holster.
I too carry a PM9 in the pocket nearly all the time. I'm right handed, so the release is toward me, and that helps no doubt. I use a "Hidden Ally" from High Noon Holsters. The chances of you being more active than me are slim to none. I do advanced tree-surgeon work, commercial fishing, even the occasional street-clothed martial arts training, all armed all the time, and have never had the PM9 release. If you're left handed, it could be an external "bump," but if you're right handed something is wrong. Could be tension on the release, or a flaw in the holster design. Could also be carrying other things in your pocket. But it really should be mighty close to physically impossible to release that mag when the gun is carried properly. Sorry you're having that trouble!
The only weapon I've had that problem with is my two M&P's. One was an older one, and they had problems with wear on the release; but that problem has been solved by S&W. The other problem was "any" M&P in a Crossbreed Supertuck, but that was the holster's fault, and there are a couple of easy fixes. A good "caution" for practicing a lot with your gear "before" you leave the house!
Best of luck with it!
I have had the same problem sometimes carrying a P32. I am a lefty and I think that makes the problem worse! I always know that I have bumped into or brushed by an object and caused this to happen. Unless the holster is stiff and covers the eject button I have to be careful if I lean into or push against something on the left side. I check the pistol occasionally to be sure the magazine is in place. I carry the pistol in a Uncle Mike's #1, which does not cover the eject button.

These are both superbly crafted, high quality little masterpieces and, while I'm fortunate to own them both, my EDC is an LCP. (In a Nemesis, strong side, front pocket.)
I've never had an issue with the mag coming loose but if I did I would certainly change whatever element in the equation that needs changing, including the pistol, until the problem was 100% solved. Obviously I'd start with the holster first. Good luck. Let us know how it works out for you.

You could consider a Walther PPS as a replacement, as it does have a European style magazine release, and would thus never have this issue. With its 6 shot magazine inserted, it is just as short height-wise as the PM9. And it is actually very slightly thinner than the PM9 as well.
Only drawback is that it is longer than a PM9. However, a Walther PPS is not any longer than a S&W 637, and is a heck of a lot thinner than that revolver. Definitely would not print anywhere near as much in your pants. And you would have 7 rounds of 9mm available, compared to only 5 rounds of .38 Special.
I carry a S&W 442 and the magazine has never been released...

I use this exact setup and have the same issue. It has happened probably 10 times in the last year and a half. I regularly check it to make sure the mag is in, seems to always bump a counter or a door..
