    IWB Recommendation

    Hello Everyone.
    I've lurked here for quite sometime and really enjoy this site.
    My wife finally took the class for her CCW. As a reward, I presented her with a nice Kahr PM9, which she simply loves.
    Now she needs a good IWB holster. We're thinking of something along the lines of a Highnoon Bare Asset, as she wants to keep it small as possible. Does anyone use this holster or have any other recommendations?
    Thanks,

    First welcome to the site. Second I really love my Crossbreed Super Tuck, can't say enough good things about it. I have a full size M&P and it works great.

    Welcome! Glad to have you on here with us. I can attest to the fact that the Crossbreed Super-Tuck and Gary Brommeland's Max Con V are both great IWB holsters. Brommeland holsters can be found at Coal Creek Armory. Wish we could work magic and give you the exact name of the holster that will be perfect but it's really a personal decision as they just feel different on different people. The Crossbreed is used by so many people that I think this one would work and it's very affordable as well. Good luck and look forward to your posts.

    Check out Little Bear Holsters if you want a custom one in a couple of weeks, rather than months.

    I also have a PM9. Your wife has a lot of options. You should show her some of the threads by Limatunes and other women. For example, sometimes, an IWB may not work for a women because of their waist and hourglass shape. I see a shoulder holster often recommended.

    High Noon Split Decision while you wait on either a K&D Dakota Defender or Milt Sparks VMII. Checkout a MTAC also if you prefer kydex over leather. For a small, tuckable IWB, the Split Decision is great.

    I own a Bare Asset. After owning it for a day...it sits in my box of holsters. I wear MTAC now...the most comfortable holster I own. Very thin...leather against your skin and kydex holding the holster for speedy draw. A hybrid that is the best of both worlds.
    It all comes down to going down the dark holes after monsters. Thatís what itís all about; when everyone else is huddled around the campfire, somebody has to go out and fight.

    I second the MTAC. It looks like it'd be uncomfortable but it's surprisingly not.
    Have her try on a few down at the local gun shop - bring her gun to adjust the fit.

    Check out this website - by women for women - for some thoughts by those who should know: (perhaps click on "holsters" for some specific carry suggestions)

    Those High Noons look excellent as well:

    I have an MTAC and recently bought a Don Hume at a gun show. The Don Hume looks much smaller and is a decent piece of leather but I found my MTAC to be much more comfortable. I found the broad MTAC spreads the pressure out over your body more and you don't have uncomforable pressure points. I now use the Don Hume for trigger protection when pocket carrying in my heavy Carhart coat.

    Thanks Everyone for the advice and recommendations.
    I got lucky (or not) picking out the Kahr for her, figured if she didn't like it..... I'd just keep it for myself..........
    I'll show her the different holsters and websites, might even take a trip to the GS and let her choose for herself.
    Thanks again and ya'll have a great weekend !

    Another plug for Fist holsters...I have two dozen+ of them.
    Go to the 'Related Links' above...search out Fist...open the site and look at the entire selection...you can search by number or style.

    Stay armed...use a Fist holster...stay safe!
