Ok guys, I just need alittle advice on a IWB for my cw9.
My dilemma:
I currently use supertuck's to conceal my full size service pistols, mainly my XD45C. I like the supertuck design and the two attachment points work great for a heavy gun like an XD. My biggest problem is its really a pain to put on sometimes. I currently use a high-noon bare asset holster for my CW9. I like the single attachment point for ease of putting it on, plus for the CW9 I see no reason for two points... it's simply not heavy enough. I have no issues with the bare asset, I just am wanting to get something alittle nicer, mainly with a "slide-guard" of some sorts that puts leather between me and the rear of the slide. I know high-noon makes the "down under" and milt sparks makes the "summer special II" as well as just about every company with a knock-off of milts design. Does anyone really stand out from the others? Part of me just want to get another super-tuck, or even the mini-tuck, but the design just seems excessively bulky for such a lightweight gun. I need ideally atleast 15* but closer to 20* of cant for my body type with 3:30 carry. I also dislike the bare asset because it has a huge metal clip that is a sloppy fit to my 1.5 inch belt. Can anyone help clear my head on this? Thanks

I use a MiniTuck for my PM9 and love it. I also had a MiniClip previous to that and really liked it. The MiniClip is basically a MiniTuck with a single clip. The only reason I went with the MiniTuck is that Crossbreed doesn't make the MiniClip for the Crimson Trace LaserGuard.

I considered a minituck, but when trying to select a P9/k9/CW9 frame kahr it says "not recommended, see supertuck." I shot them an email to see what there exact reasoning for this is. I am sure they will respond they have great C/S. I am just really confused on what I should go with. Part of me just really wants to like the "summer special II" style even though I know a supertuck will get the job done.

That looks o.k, but not really blown away by it. It also only comes with 1 3/4 belt loops. I think that would drive me nuts sice my belt is 1.5"

I looked at the desantis "cozy partner" but it is extremely thick and rigid when seeing it in person. The pictures really don't depict that well at all on their site. I have never seen a milt sparks "summer special II" in person, but it seems like it is not as thick or rigid. I know the high noon "down under" isn't. But I hate paying just as much for it as a milt sparks when the quality of detail isn't really in the same league IMO>

- LOL. I actually received the same response when I sent them an email about it. I only had the MicroClip before I bought the PM9. I actually was going to buy a P9, but they didn't have the black DLC slide, so I didn't buy it. It did fit the MicroClip perfectly though. I think the problem with the MiniTuck is that the barrel might be a little longer than the leather is, so it wouldn't be as comfortable.

Since the P9 is only an ounce heavier than the PM9, weight couldn't have been the issue.

I have four Kahr pistols my favorite holster is a Comp-tac Minotaur, my second favorite is a Bladetech. Either should fill your needs.

Thanks for all the comments so far. The reason the minituck isn't recommended is that they just feel it is alittle small for the cw9, but they did say it would work fine. I too suspect the muzzle will hang below the leather line pretty good.

My Galco Tuck and Go is the best thing I've used yet for my PM9. What I like: has only a single hook for the belt, very simple to put on. The "spring"in the plastic clip is pressure between the holster and your shirt tucked into it, that helps ensure your shirt stays tucked in. But its again easy to pull the pants out a half inch to get your shirt tucked.

What I don't like - it will leave the grip of the gun and top of the slide against your skin. I usually wear a t-shirt under it so its not a problem; even without a T I find I get used to the metal contact but I haven't worn it that way for days on end, though I've even mowed the lawn wearing it without a T. Sometimes I will tuck the t-shirt into it and leave an overshirt (sweater for example) untucked, which is by far the best concealment.

I don't think its made anymore for the Kahr, but you can probably still find it.

Oh, and I'm considering trying a mini-tuck. Cause I'm never totally happy with any holster :)
