    Fist #K8 IWB?

    I'm going to get a #K5 pocket holster for my PM9 and while checking out the Fist site, I noticed the #K8. Does anyone have this holster? How easily tuckable is it? I'm thinking about getting one with the optional velcro adapter. Would the single mount style give me enough support to hold a PM9 or will it be moving around a lot (especially w/velcro)?

    Thanks for any input.

    I have one for my Glock 26.

    It's tuckable enough, no worries there.

    I strongly dislike the two visible screws sticking up above the level of the belt. They just look very obvious and almost like it's useless to have a tuckable holster when there's something that weird there.

    Workmanship wasn't as high of quality as I'd have liked. A little Loctite on the screws -- as well as a couple of locking washers -- are a good idea, once you've determined your own preferred cant.

    I have not used their velcro, so can't speak to that. I've been quite pleased with the tab that's split to lock onto a belt loop.

    Photos below. Hope it helps. :)

    Thanks for the reply!

    I didn't realize they made a leather version. The one I saw on the site was kydex. I'm definitely open to leather. Also, if I go with the velcro option, I can avoid the screws which I agree are quite obvious. I was hoping for something similar to the High Noon Split Decision only with a velcro clip option and the K8 seemed close only in kydex.

    Maybe I'll pass (at least for now) on this one since I already have too full a drawer of holsters.

    Thanks again.

    It's not leather -- it's a Kydex/leather blend. It's got that wonderful Kydex "snick" on the inside, and comfy leather on the outside. Worth the extra $$, to my way of thinking.
