    Any such thing as a back-pocket holster?

    Hi,

    Anybody ever see or hear of a back pocket holster for small thin gun like a Kahr PM9? It fits in a back pocket without a holster just fine, but a holster would protect the gun from junk and prevent printing...

    Has both front and rear pocket holsters.

    I can carry a Taurus PT145 Mil Pro in the back (or front) pocket of loose fitting jeans (painters pants or cargo's) with my Mika pocket holster.

    I'd use the SOB holster before I'd use a back pocket holster...

    OMO...really...

    There are over 550 million firearms in worldwide circulation. That's one firearm for every twelve people on the planet. The only question is: How do we arm the other 11? (Yuri Orlov [Nicolas Cage] Lord of War)

    There are many of them. What everyone posted is good, Hedley comes to mind.

    For my PM9, I have Nate at UBG holsters make me a pocket holster with a detachable leather flap for the back pocket or square bottom cargo pockets.

    I've got holsters for different types of wear, but in the summer I usually wear blue jeans and t-shirts ...not so good for concealing, and I don't want an ankle holster. But thanks.

I think this combo of features would be helpful for keeping the holster in your pocket and the gun in your hand... many of the other pocket holsters only rely on rough-out leather or other treatments. The hinge and push-off are good ideas.

    Thanks All,

    Again, thanks! I looked into Hedley and he must be overwhelmed with orders or something ...the web site says "Closed to all new orders until further notice." Looked at UBG as well, but don't see pocket holsters ...but I'm sure he'd make one for me if I asked nicely, like he did for you :). Happen to have any photos of your holster from UBG? So far the http://www.pocketholsters.com outfit has my vote.

    Mine's been posted somewhere. I'll have to look it up, but I believe it was a thread I started. Nate listed that he does them, just doesn't post it. If you give him call, I'm sure he'll tell you what he can do. He puts a raised part of the leather that comes past the rear sight so that you can push off with your thumb. He also do a little hook at the bottom back part so it stays in the pocket.

    He's very reasonable, great quality, & probably a quicker turn around time.

    Maybe I'll email him and point him to the pocketholsters one and start a discussion ...see what he says or recommends. It could be that he could use some of his own techniques/details/good-ideas and also borrow one or two to come with a best-overall solution. It's fun exploring the options...

    Thx,
    Brian

    If you can't find one elsewhere, try this:

    I have the pocketholsters.com for Kahr PM40. It did NOT come with a push off, even though it should have. I don't miss it, though. It will fit in a jean back pocket, but good luck getting the PM series drawn in a reasonable time from a back pocket holster. Very tight, very finicky. Also visible, since the top of the pocket stays open and you can see easily see the base of the handgun. A bad idea with a PM gun, IMHO. Might be better with a dinky KelTec, Seecamp, or other gun smaller than a Kahr PM.

    That holster will also work in the front pocket of jeans, and for me is much less difficult to get out from the front jeans pocket, but still unlikely to be successful in a stressful/dynamic situation.

    It is ideal in the front pockets of dress slacks or khakis/Dockers. Watch the Chicago screws, they can loosen. I put some LocTite on mine after a screw came loose. It turned up in the wash, but not until AFTER I went to Home Depot and found a washer and machine screw to replace it.

    I'd recommend a tuckable SOB or IWB with invisible velcro belt clips over back pocket carry with a PM series. I have a atuckable Crossbreed for the PM40 that is almost invisble beneath a T-shirt. It WILL be invisible once I get my velcro lined belt and convert the J-hooks to Velcro-clips.
