Is the new Kahr CW9 conducive to carry in a POCKET HOLSTER?
If so, please suggest some POCKET HOLSTERS that are compatible with the Kahr CW9 that you'd recommend.
Thanks in advance.

I think it is doable, if your pocket is deep enough. I've dropped my E9 in my pocket a couple of times. There is not much extra room to quickly get all your fingers around the grip. These guns are about the same overall height and length as a Colt D-frame or Ruger SP101. The rear of the slide and rear sight protrudes more.
Don Hume (http://www.donhume.com/Products/ProductsList.cfm?action=SearchByWeapon&WeaponID=81) has a couple of pocket holsters. (The CW9 should be close enough to the P9.) Or, contact Robert Mika (http://frontiernet.net~akim) and see if he makes one for it. I am very pleased with the one he made for my PM9.

The FIST #5 looks suitable.
In the meantime, I contacted DeSantis via email.
"Do you make a Nemesis that is designed for the Kahr CW9? It has a 3.6"
barrel, and I don't see a listing for it on the website, though I do see for
the other Kahr models.
If so, please give me the identifier number/code for that particular model,
"You may use the holster for the K9. Item number N38BJMKZ0."
So I went ahead and relied on that, and ordered one from a guy on ebay.
Do note that both the K9 and CW9 have 3.6" barrels, so maybe it'll work. I like the Nemesis and it's not expensive.
I did ask of the ebay seller if it were compatible with the CW9. He gave me an honest answer I think-that he did not know. The listing does say it's compatible with all Kahr 9's. Thereafter, I did contact DeSantis, as above.
Will post my findings on the Nemesis.
I also ordered an inexpensive Bianchi Pocket Change holster for the Kahr at Midway. It appears that I got the last one in stock!
