    New Member - New Pistol

    Greetings,

    I just joined this forum and have learned a lot while lurking.
    Today I purchased a Kahr P9 9mm for concealed carry.

    Need to learn more on how best to carry. Tomorrow on the range for practice.

    If ideas as to carrying my Kahr, please do share.

    Thanks in advance,

    Jeff+

    Welcome to the forum frjeff. Congrats on the new Kahr........good gun. Lots of options for carry. I prefer IWB myself.

    frjeff,

    Welcome!

    Read, learn then share with others! Or something like that.
    If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!

    Welcome from Va and be safe. I carry a P9 on a daily basis and love it. It's about as good as it gets for me. Fits my lifestyle.

    Welcome from VA. Most of the time I carry IWB, at about the 4:00 position. I do have a couple of OWB holsters though incase I decide to carry that way.

    The P9 is the most naturally feeling SD gun I have ever handled and the trigger is very good too. Get yorself a good IWB like those from HBE or UBG holsters...and night sights.

    I'm very happy with this Mitch Rosen Premier. Quick and easy on and off and holds tight to the body. As you can see I put a Hogue Handall on too. I believe it gives a slightly better grip. Enjoy your new pistol.

    I have the same rig for my P228...very nice and pulls the gun in close.
