Pocket Holsters: Kramer vs. Safariland 25

I'm looking for a PH that looks more like a wallet than a rounded bulge. These two seem to be the best. Does anyone have any experience with them? Are there any other anti-print PH out that you prefer?


Thanks,

Don

I like my DeSantis Nemesis for a Kahr PM9 and for a J-frame snubbie. I don't think it prints, but, then again, I'm kind of lumpy myself......

I bought a Kramer from Dillon back when he had them for $70. It works well and retains the gun better than one of the loose holsters like Uncle Mikes. That helps if you ever sit in a chair that puts your knees above your waist - the revo doesn't slip out of the holster. It's happened to me. The Kramer has a flat bottom which might be better for keeping the holster from pivoting.
I haven't tried the Safariland but have handled one. The only thing that sticks out is the round cut on the bottom but it was well made especially for the price.

Also like to add that the Kramer is smooth on the outside. If you carry in loose bloomy pockets, that can cause the gun to rotate. The sueude finish of the Safariland should prevent that. Ayoob carries his backup in the Safariland.

I prefer the Kramer Pocket Holster myself..
I need to get a pic of the other side, It has a wallet shaped piece of leather on the outside, some of the newer Kramers this is a piece of polymer..

I have the Kramer for a J frame and the only thing it is good for is that it looks good in pictures.

It is too bulky and doesn't release well on the draw.

I have much better luck with something like the Nemisis and UM holster.

Different strokes, however I wish it was the cheap holster that sucked, not the most expensive one.

I'll have to say that the cheap Uncle Mikes IWB with the clip removed with the Airlite 342Ti in the pic above works very well for me & it stays in the pocket on the draw every time, It also weighs less than the Kramer & is my #1 GO TO Pocket holster..
I was lucky & had someone gift me the Kramer Pocket but mine stays in the pocket & draws great but is very bulky compared to he ole el-cheapo UMs..
One of the days I'm gonna look into the Mika Pocket holster, alot of guys give them great reviews..
A J Frame in the pocket beats the Glock left in the safe every time..

If you like Kydex, try a Kytac Pockit-Lock-it. I use one for my 640 and works great.

Kydex would be OK for my stainless 940 but would never put my Aluminum framed 642 in one of them, the anodizing is much tougher than the current spray on finishes but would still wear, My 642/942 still looks new except for a few marks here & there, I know that there tools but my tools look good too!!

Alabama Holster is a new company; they've been around about a year but they make a good kydex holster. The cut on the trailing edge is available in round or square cut and that keeps it from rolling in the pocket.
The holsters have hooked edges on the tail of the holster and a "push off" on the front. The push off lets you release the pressure retention of the kydex and both combine to leave the holster in the pocket on the draw.

alabamaholster.com for pictures.

They may do a wallet style holster, I know they do them for the LCP and KelTec.
