Hey guys I have ordered a new mk9. Should be here soon. Now in order to carry this little gun I need a holster. Not a real big fan of iwb carry so I am looking at other options. Any one own something of interest or know of something. I will look at iwb if any one can tell me how to keep my pants from falling off in the Texas heat!!! I know my middle section is part of the problem!Anyway I was just wondering if any of you had any suggestions other than losing some weight! Thanks

Maybe a small-of-the-back holster would be up your alley. It's usually owb.

A cheapo's (read: "my") route is to buy an owb holster for the weak side, and just wear it sob.

I prefer sob when I'm going concealed for comfort. Takes some practice for the correct draw, but it's very comfortable. A Fobus Roto holster would be a good place to start, so you can find the right angle to start practicing at. Not sure I'd daily carry a Roto Fobus, but it's good for practice.

Exchange it promptly for PM9 - much lighter. Or lighter still, a S&W 342. :D

On a more serious note, I got in new PM9 last week. Loaded with 6+1, it goes at 19.4 ounces.

I ordered Bianchi Pro 100 IWB holster for PM9. Being persnikity and hoping to carry shortly on draw string shorts, I took the holster to leather shop last Friday to get steel clip elevated another 1/2" so rig will seat deeper at 4:00 - and not gouge skinny boy's ribs. YMMV.

Is that a Kahr in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

I use a pocket holster from Rusty Sherrick (http://www.c-rusty.com) when I carry my MK9. If you are going to carry IWB, you could easily carry a larger gun than an MK9 (e.g., K9 or larger). For me, IWB carry of an MK9 kinda defeats the purpose of the gun.
