    Holster Cant Question ( Kahr PM9 )

    I was trying my new Kahr PM9 in different positions around my waist tonight and I found that about 2:30 seemed to be a very good spot. Now I just need to find a holster to accommodate it. How would you classify this cant and do you know of any holsters that might be a good match? Thanks.

    I have heard the Mitch Rosen's Tito's Revenge is recommended.

    That looks like the typical FBI cant. You might contact Eric at hbeleatherworks.com. He can make an IWB holster quickly to your specs, including cant.

    I'm looking for something with a single attachment point. I already have an MTAC for my G26 / G19 and it seems like overkill for such a small gun. I think dual attachment points are counter productive for anyone carrying between 1:00 and 2:30. At least that's my experience when testing my MTAC at those locations.

    Dual attachment points are always going to be more stable. Regardless of the firearm size. The cant looks like a standard FBI cant.

    Stability is not really in question. It's more about comfort and not being jabbed in the gut or the crotch by unnecessary attachments. I can walk around the house, bend over, and reach up high while carrying Mexican and the gun doesn't budge so stability is an afterthought next to comfort.

    Check out the Andrews MacDaniel II. When I carry my Springfield ultra compact I use it in that position and cant. Cant is adjustable to suit your needs. Very comfortable, single attachment point, and quick turnaround time(was when I got mine anyway). Great holster! Andrews Custom Leather - MacDaniel II

    I agree completely.

    My MTAC positions my Kahr K9 at about that cant.....although I prefer it at about 4 o'clock

    The TT Gunleather I use for my PM9 should not be compared to an MTAC. It is in another class of holster. I find it a pleasure wear, easy on/off, and actually too beautiful to hide in your pants.

    I must also mention that using two attachment points creates less of a bulge because the loops/clips aren't on top of the gun but off to the side. From your picture you won't be carrying at 1 or 2 o'clock. My slim IWB would fit right between your belt loops.

    IMHO you will be pleasantly surprised.

    Good point. I hadn't considered that.
