I have a Don Hume 721 OT for my Kahr CW9 Been wearing it for 1.5 yrs. now I still check now and then but it never changes, and stays put. I carry it 18/7 i even nap out in the bed with it on occasion. Was thinking of adding a 3/16 bunge cord as a optional retainer that could be used or not. I have made small 1/8 mile running sprints with no problem. I think its a great holster. Think i'll get the same for my NEW PT709.
Get a good belt too makes a big difference Got mine from a police/USPS supply house
I have the same 721 OT for my Taurus 24/7.
Gun stays put no problems. Pic from before the gunbelt
When a quality holster is 'boned' for a particular weapon, retention will be extremely reliable. If you don't believe this, place your empty weapon (check for 'empty' three times) in the holster (off your body) and discover how much shaking is needed to release the weapon onto a bed or pillow. It should take quite a bit of shaking.
A few years ago I had a Beretta 9000S in a 'boned' IWB holster. I missed a bleacher step at a rodeo (another story of enjoyment for my wife) and tumbled down about three rows. Except for my pride, I was not injured. My sidearm remained covered and in its holster.
You can't beat a quality holster for retention.
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
