    I have a PM9 with a High Noon Hidden Alley holster http://www.highnoonholsters.com/Prod...dden_ally.html it is tuckable, it is alright except for the clip that goes over the belt, the clip is very wide and shows when you tuck your shirt in. I know the clip has to be there, but does not have to be so wide. I am looking at the Silent Thunder, Comp Tac 2 o'clock, Dale Fricke Arch Angel, smart carry and the belly band. I like the feature of the "J" Clip that stays behind the belt and catches at the bottom. If you do not tuck your shirt in it does not matter what clip the holster has.

    I like appendix carry the best for IWB, however, for dress cloths I am considering the MiniTuck CrossBreed.

    The PM9 has been a great CC gun, I like to pocket carry when I can, some pants don't let you do that.

    I use the Minituck. Great holster.

    I've heard nothing but good things about Mark Garrity's new AIWB holster. Might be one for you to check out.

    You can try Side Guard Holsters... I understand they make holsters with side guards for big burly guys like us

    I carry mine in a High Noon "Hidden Ally" also at times. It does not have the sweat gaurd, but I have heard that they will custom make them for you, even though they discourage it because of the ultra-thin leather. I think it would work fine if that's what you wanted. They also have a great return policy! And as for the clip, I agree with MitchSteve that it's very broad, but that helps on stability, and I am actually quite fond of its design because it is "never" coming out of my pants with the gun! One downside of this holster is that it places the grip right on the belt, so no combat grip. Very concealable though! Try one out, you can always send it back.

    Something that I just tried that has some promise for appendix carry, I took my Desanti Nemesis pocket holster and wore it appendix position, due to the sticky outside it stays in place pretty well and is pretty thin. If you have this holster for one of your guns give it a try. I would be interest in anyone who has or will give a try to see you findings.

    I pocket carry on occasion with either a Kahr PM9 in a High Noon "Pocket Grabber," or an M&Pc in a Nemesis. Often when I get in the car, especially when I'm going home late at night, I'll pull it from my pocket and tuck it IWB as you describe. But that is because of the difficult draw when sitting from the pocket, and the fact that I'm winding up home, and "will" shoot if there's a problem when I get there.

    Personally, I think its a bad idea as a normal carry method, but it depends on your defense philosophy. For me, I like to reserve the opportunity to fight, largely because I really don't want to kill anyone! I can't fight if my pistol is just tucked into my belt, because there's too great a chance of losing it, or fumbling. So I like a very secure method of attaching it to my person. Just my opinion, and my circumstance.

    The Archangel doesn't come in a PM9...but I wish it did. I have one for my G26...absolutely love that holster.

    Plus one on the Garrity, saving my coin for one now. Something a little less expensive and one I use EVERYDAY (the only IWB holster I own) is the Shaggy from Custom Carry Concepts: http://www.customcarryconcepts.com/holsters

    Quality work, I love mine and Rich is a great business man. If the Shaggy is a little steep try the Looper (predecessor of the Shaggy).

    My 45c just disappears! If you want any other info PM me. Oh, and his prices are climbing a little so you may want to jump in it while he is still kind of unknown

    I see that retsupt99 beat me to it, but i think you would like the #1 holster from F.I.S.T. I had one in kydex for the PM9 I owned, and it was very comfortable.

    Good luck!

    From personal experience I can certainly reccomend a 2 O'Clock Carry by Comp-Tac which is a dedicated appendix carry holster. I believe it would do nicely for the Kahr pistol in question. Note from the pic the extended slide cover which prevents direct body contact. Great holster.

    I would like to second this, with a caveat. I used one of these with a PM9 off & on for a year or so, and it was my favorite in many ways, as it had the perfect ride height for me, was quite comfortable, & had excellent retention. The one thing I had against it was that it was possible to tweak the holster in the course of my "very active" day such that when I drew the gun, the holster came with it. Either replace or pay special attention to this clip, keep it tight, and make sure that's not gonna happen!
