Looking to purchase a front pocket holster for a Kahr P380. Desantis offers the Nemesis and the Superfly. I have read a lot of good things on here about the Nemesis. Is the Superfly worth the extra $15?

I don't think the superfly is worth it. I've never had the Nemesis come out of my pocket accidentally, and I have a hard enough time pulling it out of some pants when I try to, sometimes I have to draw pistol, remove holter from pocket, reholster pistol.

I wouldn't want it to be any stickier, unless I was going to be running a lot or hanging upside down from a jungle gym, and in that case I would be using a holster attached to my belt with some kind of active retention, not pocket carrying :-)

My nemesis comes out if I'm not careful. the extra sticky might be worth it.

I have had no problems with my nemesis. I use it with my LCP with an armalaser. It helps to keep the pistol from printing and it keeps everyhitng where i want it.

I've had occasional problems with the Nemisis coming out of my pocket. I found the pocket holsters from rkbaholsters.com to be far superior. I have one for my j-frame and love it.

I had a superfly to use with my Kel Tec pf9 when I had it and I was incredibly disappointed in it! The holster grabbed the pistol a whole lot tighter than the holster sticky stuff grabbed my pockets! :mad:

I had to come up with a rather complex way of drawing the gun while trying to free it from the superfly's death grip and dragging the outside of the holster on my pocket lining to make it stay put. Maybe I had the superfly inside out? :)

Might want to check out Mika's holsters. They have good reviews here.

Good luck!

for the j-frame the mika is excellent. the jun basically jumps out. but since I started carrying the LCP the j-frame feels huge by comparison.

Never tried the Superfly, but I can't imagine it would be that much better. I have a Nemesis for a J-Frame 38 and a Glock 26... both work well.
