    Modifying my Kahr PM9 pocket holster

    I've been using my royal blue binder pocket holster for my PM9 for a while now. It's been working, but there is always room for improvement.

    Areas of Improvement
    - Doesn't always fit the pocket right because of how the bottom is cut.
    - In tight pockets it prints the grip a little.
    - In really wide pockets it tends to tilt forward making drawing a bit harder.

    Now, how do we "fix" these issues? Then I came up with an idea. I trimmed up the original holster I was using, cutting off the tail that hooks the pocket. Then I stuck on the loop side of velcro to the holster. Next I cut up a piece of leather to create an anti-print pad. To that pad I stuck on the hook side of velcro. Now I have a holster that's adjustable for the angle of the anti-print pad. I can also now create other anti-print pads with different bottom cuts to fit different pockets better and easily attach them to the holster.

    Here are some pictures.




    I'm looking forward to experimenting with it and getting some first hand experience with it.

    Why not use kydex for the velcro -"pad" portion?

    I like the slickness of the binder plastic and since it's a pocket holster it doesn't need much if any retention. Don't want the holster coming out with the gun. I also like the flexibility that it has over kydex. Kydex is very stiff and really doesn't have much give.
