    Kahr PM9 Kydex Pocket Holster

    Inspired by my previous pocket holster for my Charter Arms snubby I decided my Kahr PM9 needed some new duds. I added a distinct bend to the tail which does two things. It gives it a squared off look when it's in my pocket and it helps hook onto the pocket to allow the holster to fall away from the gun when drawn. I haven't added any anti-skid tape to it yet, but I don't think I'll need to.


    I made sure to cut enough away from the grip to allow a solid grip and the outside pocket side is nice and flat with just a hint of curve here and there.

    Comparing it to the pocket holster for the snubnose revolver it's shorter in length (muzzle to grip), but has more height (top of slide to bottom of grip). I prefer to shoot with the Pearce grip extension so I leave it on for pocket carry.

    Everytime I make something like this I gain renewed appreciation for the folks that make these for a living. The inital molding of the kydex isn't hard, but all the little details to make it fit just right for the gun, pocket and for the hand add up and take time. In the end, it sure is nice when it turns out the way you want it.

    I did end up adding a little anti-skid tape. I figured a little added insurance it won't slide out of the pocket with the gun doesn't hurt.

    Use the thinnest kydex on the market, this will help it bend a little more with your body. Overlay it with some felt or suede, use industrial adhesive. This will keep it from coming out of your pocket on draw. Remove a little more of the kydex, round it out more ... it will become more comfortable.

    Looks awesome!
