    I'm sure to get flak on this post. I've used an Uncle Mike's padded nylon holster for my PM40. It is very comfortable, adjustable and concealable. Did I mention inexpensive?
    If you get this holster you can experiment with placement and it can be worn cross-draw if desired.

    So as time goes on if you like the placement of this holster then you can drop a $100 or so on a custom leather holster. I wear mine with the holster between the belt and my jeans waistband. Almost invisible with a black nylon 5.11 belt.

    heeler, I haven't carried with it for very long IWB...I live in IL so it's for use outside my state. I have only used it for about 30 minutes IWB (HAD to try it out around the home-place of course) but I think it will be fine that way if needed.

    I have a Milt Sparks Summer Special for 1911 and the Cuda is definitely more comfy, but of course the whole package is smaller anyway. I also have a Crossbreed Supertuck for a Sig P220, which works well for it, but again, it's a full size gun.

    I am very impressed with the standard OWB concealment of the Cuda, it pulls in tight with a good belt and conceals under my longer t-shirts and sweatshirts easily. Makes it a darned easy gun to tote.

    I will definitely spend more money with Simply Rugged (pancake for my J-frame), that's as good of an endorsement as I can give I suppose.

    Can't carry much firepower wearing "jeans and t shirt".

    Go to TARGET and get some nice summer shirts.

    Your firepower load capacity increases spectacularly, and your ladies will appreciate it.

    My CBOB and MTAC disagree with your assessment.

    How do you do it?

    I always feel like I am printing like a Gutenberg the moment i move!

    I had a cbob and it was much better though.

    I have been carrying concealed for 30+ years and have yet to find any holster that works better than either a pancake or the Don Hume JIT, both OWB and in leather. Kydex will almost always push the gun further from the body making them print worse and they are noisy to boot. A good holster and belt combo in horsehide will last for at least 25 years and be as tight as it was when new. Other than the JIT I mentioned above I like Ken Null and Kramer.

    Null with a P7M8, crossdraw Kramer with a 625, and a pocket gor my Model 12

    and the JITs...

    Well I went on a limb and ordered one of the holsters that is so popular on Glock Talk. (made by one of the members)
    Over 40 pages on that thread and they are all positive.

    I bought a IWB Crossbreed SuperTuck clone for $50 delivered and made any way I wanted it. I got it with the leather backing covering the full slide.

    I like the way the Cuda looks for OWB though.

    Also got a free 5.11 belt from Cabelas with my bonus points.

    I have a couple of Milt Sparks holsters that I love: the 55BN is an excellent holster but it seems to stick out a little bit. I also have a 60 TK that is excellent. It rides very high and conceals a 1911 better than any non-IWB holster I have ever owned.

    Thanks for the link Capp.
    Give us a road test once you start using it with your Kahr.
    I swear I am just positively stunned by the amount of quality holsters there are out there.
    Makes me dizzy just deciding on what to get!!
