    Super Fly vs. Nemesis?

    Thinking of buying either a Nemesis or a Super Fly pocket holster by DeSantis for my Kahr PM9. I've got the Nemesis for my Kel Tec P3AT. Does anyone here have both, and could you give an opinion on which you prefer and why? Does the Super Fly warrant nearly twice the cost?
    Regards, T Bone.

    Have a Nemesis I bought for my J-frame. Thought it was fairly good until I got a Super Fly for my LCP. Super Fly is definitely stickier and stays put much better than the Nemesis. I still use the Nemesis for my J's, but plan on replacing it with the Super Fly as soon as funds allow. The Super Fly comes with the detachable panel, too, which is great for keeping my LCP in pockets I couldn't use before. All in all, an improvement over the Nemesis.

    Have you checked out the FIST #5 Pocket Holster? I got one in leather a couple of months ago for my P3AT and the nice fit and "thumb push" designed into it puts it heads and shoulders above all the rest. IMO Just a thought for you.

    I got the Super Fly for my M&P 40c . I like the the flap but on some of my pants I need to remove it.

    I handled one at the range for my PM9.
    Too thick, even without the flap, IMO.

    I find even the original Nemesis too thick, though.

    Without the flap, is the Super Fly still thicker than the Nemesis?

    My EDC BUG with DeSantis Super Fly. I highly recommend it. Leaves room for Surefire E2D LED in "front" of the holster in all but one pair of suit pants.

    Any problem with the size of the 40C and the Super Fly in your pocket?

    I love the "idea" of pocket carrying my Sig P239.

    I carry a Kel-Tec P-3AT with a Crimson Trace laser in a Super Fly. I have absolutely no issues with the holster.

    Seemed so to me, but I didn't have it with me to compare side by side.

    Original Nemesis okay for my Kahr PM9, until I found this. So thin it makes Nemesis feel like a quilt. StellarRigs.



    I still have a Nemesis for a small old Charter revolver I carry once in a while, but if I carried it in pocket all the time, I'd find some Kydex rig for it, too.

    Love my SuperFly and my PM9

    I pocket carry all the time. I love the combination. The extra flap covers any "print". If the cover makes it too bulky, (it doesn't in my opinion), you can just remove it.

    Sounds like as with most things, some will like them, some won't . Probably just need to try it for myself. Fortunately, none of these are that expensive. I do have the Sparks pocket holster for the PM9. But I like options.

    Today I found decent prices on the Nemesis and Super Fly at Midway. The Super Fly is back ordered, so I'll try it later. I ordered a Nemesis (along with an on sale Wilson Combat ETM 8rd. mag to try in the 1911's, to get above their minimum order handling charge).

    Also looking at the rigs from Stellar, as well as Fist, and some IWB options including the Crossbreed Mini Tuck and the Two O'Clock from Comptac (saw in another thread here). The PM9 is a great little pocket gun, but I figure it doesn't have to only be a pocket gun!

    Thanks to all for their input
    Regards, T Bone.
