Howdy,

Since I've got 5 of the things, thought you guys might want to see what a MK9 Elite 2003 looks like in each one.

I'll add a little review with each one.

Alessi Talon

PROS: Awesome workmanship, killer clip design, doesn't collapse even without a stiffner
CONS: Impossible to get, short length tends to dig at times

http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h164/Rarestrx/Kyle016.jpg

Uncle Mike's Sidekick #4 Pocket Holster

PROS: Cheap, stays in pocket during draw, cheap.
CONS: Doesn't conceal as well as a leather backed pocket holster.

http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h164/Rarestrx/Kyle020.jpg

High Noon Hidden Ally

PROS: Tuckable, variable retention screw, reinforced mouth, inexpensive
CONS: Clip not as good as Alessi's, leather quality a little iffy

http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h164/Rarestrx/Kyle022.jpg

http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h164/Rarestrx/Kyle023.jpg

SmartCarry

PROS: Deepest concealment, comfortable, extra mag carrier built in
CONS: Draw speed (At least for me)

That's it for now. Hopefully other folks here on GT with other style of holsters will take a pic and add it to this thread.

Kevin "Hopefully."

Howdy,

Does the Milt Sparks have a sweat shield, or something like the Alessi?

Thanks for posting guys!

It's a little hard to tell from this picture, but the back of the holster actually does cover the slide to the top. You can get the holster in full horsehide, or if you order a cowhide front, they still make the back out of horsehide. (supposedy better with "moisture"). I have to say I just love this little gun though! I have the BOX model, as you see, and I just ordered an Elite. Good thing I'm not married ;)

Hey there,
Well, when I got around to ordering my VMII, late last year, the wait time was 4-5 months! Luckily, there are a few Milt Sparks stocking dealers around the country.......
The only one I could find that carried product for the Kahr was "Lightning Arms Sports" out of Oregon. (they are on the internet) You pay a bit more with their mark-up, but the wait would have been worse! (the difference between carrying and not carrying) I also picked up some optional Kydex clips that make the holster "tuckable", which I haven't tried yet, but figured I'd like the flexibility. Hope this helps.

p.s. this thing was so hard for me to get, quickly, that the holster is actually officially for a PM9. I was assured it would fit fine, which it does.

For front pants pocket carry, I use this molded leather holster made for me by a fellow GlockTalk member - IIRC, I was only charged $10/shipped:

RarestRX, I've always wanted to ask a "SmartCarry"(Thunderwear) owner, how do you p-i-s-s with that pouch on? I'm not trying to be smart, with all respect, that was a concern of mine as I thought about getting one, however, I'm also not so sure I like what the gun is pointing at. Another question I have is, your Alessi looks like a diffent gun model. S 380? What type of gun was that holster made for?
Reason being, more possible holster options.

MK9 Elite 2003 with a discontinued Alessi Plus Talon RH. Not sure why it's no longer made. I haven't had any problems with mine. It's an excellent holster. No complaints except the plastic clip makes me a bit nervous, if it breaks the holster will be useless. If it had been metal it would be perfect.
Draw time/comfort depends where you wear it. I like mine to the right of the small of my back. You forget it's even there sometimes.

PM9 in Don Hume Front Pocket Holster for the ultimate in concealability:

I am a self-proclaimed holster nut. I have scores of the things that i have bought traded and gotten with pistols. Each time I get a new pistol I do through the things and see what fits it. I have found that, in addition to the ones made for Kahrs (with some exceptions) the T/TP through the MK/PM series will fit, although they may be a bit long or short as you might expect.

Holsters for the smaller Glocks and SIGs (239 and 232) frequently fit, as well as the ubitquitous slide holsters that fits 1911 style pistols. I will post them tonite and then go back and add info later.

First up, my favorites (in addition to the High Noon Tuckable IWB and the Don Hume IWB already posted):

The Wild Bill Undercover Covert--I wear this tuckable and it is invisible. The one clip on the belt is secure and actually peferable over two since I can then adjust the cant to match the pantsshirt I have on. It also has enough stiffness that it is a bit easier to reholster:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v319/cigarman/WildBillIWBtuckablein.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v319/cigarman/WildBillIWBtuckableout.jpg

If you prefer two belt loops, here is the Galco Summer Comfort IWB:


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v319/cigarman/GalcoIWBin.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v319/cigarman/GalcoIWBout.jpg

One of my favorites and one of the most ingenious; the DeSantis Secret Agent. This is a flat piece of leather with velcro to adjust to the barrel of practically any auto with a nice sweat shield and belt loop that snaps. It is tuckable and light as anything. I think it is better with a longer barreled pistol, but works fine with the PM9. It comes right and left handed. The right handed is great for the hip and I have a left handed one for SOB carry at the kidney level. It is glove leather quality and flxible and comfortable. It is a bit harder to reholster based on this fact.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v319/cigarman/DeSantisSecretAgentIWBr.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v319/cigarman/DeSantisSecretAgentIWBinsideRH.jpg


What would a set of holsters be without the DeSantis Nemesis (larger size of the 2 available)

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v319/cigarman/Nemesis2r.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v319/cigarman/Nemesis2l.jpg

Next would be the slide holsters: the JB Yanqui (the clip makes it reversable IWB, remove the clip and it is a belt slide. Either right or left handed

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v319/cigarman/JPBYanquislider.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v319/cigarman/JPBYanquislidel2.jpg

The Dillon Belt Slide. Also reversible so both sides are the same, so only one pic

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v319/cigarman/Dillonbeltslider2.jpg

Next would be two holsters that were designed to fit the Glock, the SIG 239 and the Walther P99. These are all available for a variety of pistols/designs but I have them and they fit the Kahrs. To show how either the MK/PM or the TP would fit, I included a pic of both in the same holster.

Incidently these and all others (unless noted as r/l like the Nemesis, and slides and the JIT) are right handed. This would be worn upside-down with the grip upwards and toward the strong hand, as in the TP9 pic. These holsters hold the Kahrs firmly with no "slop" except for some extra length. This is no problem for me and I would rather use a holster that can fit both the PM and TP designs.

The Galco SOB (BTW, with due respect to dr.henryjonesjr who posted the other SOB holster, you should be cautious about putting the SOB or any hard object like a pistol, over your spine--a fall and you could be a paraplegic)

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v319/cigarman/GalcoSOBoutside.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v319/cigarman/GalcoSOBinside.jpg

With a TP9; the P9/40 would also be a great fit. This is shown in the actual position of carry for a RH person.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v319/cigarman/GalcoSOBoutsideTP9.jpg


The Don Hume JIT; this is one for a P99, but fits the PM/P/PT. It is lefthanded for SOB carry. I also have one that is right handed for standard carry:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v319/cigarman/DonHumeJIT.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v319/cigarman/DonHumeJITinside.jpg


This last holster is beautifully made, but not marked and my aging brain misplaced the maker, possibly someone could assist me. This is a TP9 in it but the PM an P fit well also:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v319/cigarman/unknownrTP9.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v319/cigarman/unknownlTP9.jpg

I also have a Galco shouldder holster Miami rig and a Bianchi shoulder holster made for SIG 239 pistols that fit the PM and TP nicely. Pics on request. I used enough Bandwidth for the day.

Cigarman, that's interesting. I've never considered that possibility and I've never heard of that ever happening. Being both a Radiologic and Magnetic Resonance Imaging Technologist, I've never come across that type of an injury. (X-ray and MRI Tech, trying to sound smarter then I actually am) Do you know of anyone this actually happened to? It seems to me that you'd most likely fracture a spinous process or two, rather then become a paraplegic, but stranger things have happened. When it comes right down to it, it IS possible with just the right angle of fall, mass, velocity, and surface hardness/irregularity. You could fall 100 times and never have a problem, but it only takes once with the right conditions to become injured. Looks like I'll have to take your advice and change my carry position, after all why take that 1 in 100 chance. Thanks alot, now I have an excuse to buy NEW holsters!:supergrin:

This is a little bit off topic, but since dr.henryjonesjr. works with MRIs, I though he'd find this interesting:

LINK: Officer Safety Bulletin - MRI (http://www.afte.org/announcements/offsafetymri.htm)

OFFICER SAFETY WARNING

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Unit Causes
Malfunction of Officer’s Issue Firearm

In July 2001, an officer from the Manheim Township (Lancaster County, Pennsylvania) Police Department had an incident where his issue firearm malfunctioned. The Smith & Wesson, Model 4013, .40 S&W caliber, semi-automatic pistol was found to have a magnetized firing pin, which stuck to the side of the channel within the slide. Upon inspection, it was determined that the entire pistol had become so magnetized that paper clips actually stuck to any metal surface. The department armorer was able to demagnetize the firearm with the use of a high-power, videotape-erasing unit after complete disassembly.

When the malfunction was discovered, the officer had no idea of when or how his pistol had become magnetized. A review of the officer’s activities, revealed that he had investigated a burglar alarm call at a medical office that was equipped with a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) unit. During the investigation, the officer had walked into the MRI suite that magnetized the pistol. MRI medical personnel have detailed instructions on safety, which include keeping metal objects away from the unit. Upon further inspection, two additional officer’s firearms were also found to have been magnetized.

RECOMMENDATION

ALL ISSUE FIREARMS SHOULD BE CHECKED FOR THIS CONDITION

Police department and medical facility security administrative personnel should notify officers of the following:

Investigations within medical facilities could magnetize an issue firearm rendering it inoperable.

The test to determine if a firearm has become magnetized is to place a paper clip next to the firearm.

If the paper clip sticks to the firearm, a supervisor should be notified immediately.

A trained department-designated officer should verify the firearm is magnetized and the firearm should be demagnetized with the use of a high-powered videotape-erasing unit after it has been completely disassembled.

The firearm should be test fired prior to being returned to service.

The fact that there is no outward sign that a firearm may not function as a result of MRI/magnetic exposure makes this problem difficult to detect. Awareness of this situation may prevent serious or deadly consequences.

And to get it back on topic, here's my MK9 with a C-TAC:

Sorry, :offtopic: again, but I gotta' reply to that awesome story.

DirksterG30, that's a new one on me too. MRI units are popping up everywhere. It's sad that safety guidelines aren't always followed.(especially in a private office setting vs. a hospital) The scanner itself should ALWAYS be locked up after hours. Most scanners now are 1.5 Tesla, One Tesla is 20,000 times the strength of the magnetic field of the earth. It also is equivalent to the strength of the electromagnets used in junk yards to lift cars, and that's just 1T. The FDA has opened it up to 3 Tesla for clinical stuff now. Twice the field strength. It's an awesome amount of power. It's a superconductive magnet, cooled by liquid helium or liquid nitrogen or both. A rupture of the coolant system alone (quench) could kill you and the operator. -although not frequently advertised.:supergrin: Paper clips and hair pins have a terminal velocity of 40 mph, at 1.5 Tesla. The force with which projectiles are pulled toward a magnetic field is proportional to the mass of the object and the distance from the magnet. Plus the object when pulled in goes in one side and reaches the opposite pole and gets pulled back in again until it reaches the center(isocenter). So, your not just hit with that pair of open scissors once, your hit three or four times as it finally comes to a hault in the center of the scanner. I've seen cases of all kinds of stuff going into scanners like wheelchairs, walkers, tanks, code carts, beds, you name it, keys, pens, spoons, fake jewelry, artificial arms/legs, crutches, floor buffers, whatever, but never a firearm. Fire departments are specially trained on MRI suites now, but police usually aren't. Hell, even the radiologists (MRI Docs) don't know what can or can not go into the scanner most of the time. You see, the magnet is always on, whether your scanning on not. It can rip metal out of your eye balls,(causing blindness), the RF energy can burn you(severely), you can get pinned to the scanner by a metal object(crushing you with thousands of pounds of force) melt old pacemaker wires into your heart, torque an aneurysm clip in your bain causing death in a few short minutes...:faint: I could go on forever about MRI safety, it could cause some really serious injuries, however it's quite safe...as long as the FDA guidelines are followed and the techologist knows what he/she is doing. (not always the case) it's kinda' scarry some of the people I've had to work with. I travel all over the U.S. to temp staff hospitals, so I see A LOT. Anyway, that's why the techs screen you for any metal, x-ray your eyes if your a welder etc. Most scanners today have what's called active shielding in addition to passive shielding(thick steel plates). Active shielding is an opposing electromagnetic field to help contain the static (main) one. I could see an Officer with a holstered firearm passing by an actively shielded scanner (within say 3 feet) magnetizing his gun. Of course he'd feel the pull on his belt, a strong pull, believe me you'd know. Anything ferrous put in or around the scanner will be magnetized. If it ACTUALLY went into a scanner without discharging, you'd need a come along braced on the door jam to winch it out, and I'd hate to be that engineer. Stuff in the scanner can flip violently. I know of a G.E. engineer that eviscerated himself with a coldhead(cryo pump) while swapping it out, it flipped and aligned itself with the magnetic field while he was holding it, spilling his guts all over the floor. (he lived) Most small objects like that can be pulled out with out ramping the magnet down(dumping cryogen to decrease the field strength) Anything big and your talking a scanner that's down for at least 3-4 days and say 100,000 dollars or so for a refill and service. Pretty cool huh? An officer MIGHT be able to pull a firearm off the scanner by hand, but I doubt it, unless it was a Glock or other polymer frame handgun, since it would mainly be just the slide you'd have to pull out. While pulling it out it could actually exert enough force on the trigger bar to fire. I realize that's not the case here, but having scanned several prisoners myself, and always having to brief the armed escorts about removing shackles and staying at the doorway with their fireams, I've often wondered what would happen if one did get into the scanner.:shocked: Neat story!

Anyone have any photos of the Mitch Rosen belt slide sold on Kahrs site? I would like to see an MK series in one for reference. I'm also looking at a small FIST leather holster. I'm looking for some inexpensive options before I spend a ton on IWB vs. OWB. And I'm a lefty, so it appears to be an even bigger wait at most places.

Anyone use one of the Crossbreed type holster with a Kahr?

Plus, a bump for a great thread in general.

I recently sold this Mitch Rosen Belt Slide. That's a P45. It is a very good holster, molded well, easy draw, holds close to the body. The forward rake is perfect for where I carry on my body, about 4:00. I still use a similar M.R. holster, just a different design with snap loops.

I got this mainly for going to the movie theater, but it works great under winter coveralls too. It's light and comfortable, and his little to no swing. With a thumb break, it's not designed for speed, but it's there when you need it. A big plus is, it should accommodate the new Crimson Trace laser grips. :cool: I also got two extra Chicago screws and the ammo side tie-down. $80.00 (tie-down/screws)-extra

Tucker Gunleather "Cover-Up." The most comfortable IWB I have ever worn, bar-none! It also has the best clip I have ever seen on an IWB tuckable. The sheath is aboyt 5/8" longer than the bbl, and that makes it extremely confortable. All day carry...can't tell it's there. The wait was LONG, but well worth the wait!

Over pants and belt as a "tuckable." Shirt tucks in pants between clip and holster to completely conceal the PM9. The clip is the only visible item. With a black belt, the clip is extremely hard to see.

I normally use my Don Hume IBW holster for my PM-9. I rescently made a pocket holster for it to try out. Between the two side pieces of leather I put a very thick piece cut around the shape of the gun. It reduced the depth of the molding, so a little less printing:

Resurrection of an old thread just to give another +1 to the Tucker "Cover-Up" for my PM9.

I just got mine (ordered April 2) last week, and it is by far one of the best IWB holsters I have used. I ended up ordering a rough out version and it stays in place nicely at whatever cant I want due to it's clip pivot design. Also the extra 5/8" length (mentioned by cybertek ) is a nice feature for 2 reasons. 1. it adds to the comfort of the holster. 2. it allows for the use of a P9 if wanted.

If you are looking for a holster and can wait a bit, this is well worh the cost/time!!

I just got mine in the mail today. Fast shipping...I ordered it online and it was here 2-days later... 4 states away. My PM9 M-TAC is worn at 3:30 also. (I might dremel the last hole of the clip off so it doesnt stab me in the butt) the leather is also still sqeaky probably cause it's new. The top kydex part looks tall enough to accomodate the big dot sights i'm thinking about.

My LGS had very little that would work with my new K9 (at least what I could afford anyway), so I settled on this Galco for a while until I can get a good kydex.

You'll note the wire. The holster lost any hint of retention after a day, so I jerry-rigged it for more retention. Works pretty well actually, if goofy looking.

Nice to see this thread ressurected. Here's a picture of my Little Bear IWB Holster:

http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e99/alnitak2/DSC_1683.jpg

Part of the design requirements were an offset clip to minimize thickness, tuckable, room to grab the grip completely and the ability to adjust the cant. The clip is replacable, if you prefer the standard clip (as shown on the mag holder) or a velcro clip (my intent as soon as I get an appropriate belt).

I rotated the clip on the mag holder so you can see that Dave even put the elephant on that! Very nice work.

Desantis Nemesis pictured in this post (and thank-you for posting that):
http://glocktalk.com/forums/showpost.php?p=8072373&postcount=12

is extra-nice, but unfortunately covers most of the grip which makes drawing it (how shall I say?) inconvenient. I really really like the design of that holster, but for the Kahr PM9, there is not enough of the grip hanging out to make a good clean grab when needed. I'm very disappointed about that.

I'm thinking of glueing on "grippy stuff" to an existing holster I have to keep it in my pocket when I pull the PM9 out -- rather than settling for the Nemesis. (Which, did I mention, I like?) No size I've found is appropriate for the PM9. Dang it.

I had the same reaction to my Nemesis. I did call Desantis, and of course they will build a custom one for you. I also thought about cutting the Nemesis and resewing the seams. I still think that's an option, and shortening the holster to the length of the barrel and covering the trigger guard will significantly reduce the bulk of the holster as well. Just never gotten around to buying a second to experiment.

Thought I would add a few (very poor) images of the F.I.S.T. #1K. In the image with the arrow, I'm trying to point to a spot where you can readily see how thin the kydex is. Although that thin, the holster still has a strong purchase on the gun. It's really a neat holster.

I opted for the body shield ( or body guard). The other option is cut lower without the body guard. The body guard tacks on another $8.00.

Comp-Tac's The Infidel offers a variety of options. The shirt tucker option allows the holster to drop below the belt line so the gun is completely hidden.

Although the Bianchi 100 Professional is not strictly for the PM9, it does quickly mould to the gun.

The cheapest holster and one I use most often is Uncle Mike's Sidekick Sz 36. It works for both the PM9 and the PM45. I use the same holster to carry my Snubbie. Although it isn't perfect, it is a heck of a holster for under $10.00.

What would a set of holsters be without the DeSantis Nemesis (larger size of the 2 available)

I am looking for a Nemesis but want the smaller of the "two available." Does anyone know what that would be? I want to be able to get a good purchase on the pistol not just grab the end of the grip.

This is the offering from the DeSantis site: http://www.desantisholster.com/storefrontB2CWEB/itemdetail.do?action=prepare_detail&itm_id=2051&itm_index=0

sorry - off topic - catbird & triggerman, where did you guys get your rubber grips at? catbird's looks like strategically placed peices and the triggerman's looks more like a glove that wraps the whole grip.

Thanks and nice thread guys!

Is there an IWB holster with an adjustable cant that I can use on my
MK9? More specifically, I'd like to use the same right hand holster at ~ 3:30 position with a forward cant as well as moved around cross draw at 11:00 and re-adjust it to a forward cant. I've looked at a lot of holsters in this thread and on the interent but they all appear to be a fixed cant.
Thanks ............ R

There are some very helpful posts on this thread - thanks all. Here is one that I have not seen listed yet. I carry a PM9 in this High Noon Pocket sometimes. Its made of heavy, quality leather, with a grippy rubber-like material sewed to the exterior to keep it in your pocket during your draw.
It does seem to print a bit - depending on the pants.
It does seem bombproof - like it would never wear out.

My constant companion: Don Hume 715-MC

Pros: Readily available, inexpensive, nice stiff opening
Cons: None I've found

Thanks to you, I think this is what I'm going with for mine, rather than the Hidden Ally.

I appreciate you posting that pic.

I think mine will be ordered in black, but that's really the best concealment/value equation I've seen so far.

looking at ditching my huge Mtac. That holster looks ideal. I might switch to that.
how comfortable is it to wear on an all-day basis ?

My all time favorite, Mitch Rosen CLP. Low sitting and I can wear it anywhere between 2 to 4 o'clock comfortably.

Yes and no. If the holster is open bottom like a Comp-tac CTAC "slide" model, then yes. If the holster is enclosed (formed) around the muzzle, then the CW will not go all the way in.

I have a MTAC and a Theis horsehide for my PM9. For all-day carry (~16 hrs), I feel the Theis is at least 20% more comfortable. I really appreciate the difference the last 4 hrs. It feels thinner and lighter also. However, the MTAC is more like a work of art.

I carry a G26 in a Theis and love it. Do you know if he can make one similar to the Mini-Tuck that CB makes?

I believe Theis offers two different sizes depending on the pistol's frame size. The one for my PM9 is similar in size to the CB mini. I bet he would make a custom one to your specs.
