    Can someone post pics of themselves with the kahr pm9 in pocket.

    It seems I can't find a SINGLE picture or video of people with this gun in their pocket. It's quite frustrating.

    Thanks in advance.

    I find that it is a little big for pocket carry. Also, when loaded, it tends to
    print more. I use a very thin in waist plastic holster by FIST. At other times
    when wearing a jacket, a high ride, straight drop slide.

    oh really

    mine in a desantis nemesis, seems to get by everyone so far. I carry 24/7 in my jeans front pocket. Looks like a wallet at best.

    I carry mine in my right front pocket, in a Mika pocket holster. It is a rather tight fit in many jeans pockets, but fits well in larger pockets, e.g., cargo pant. Particularly in a tight pocket, there is a slight but unobtrusive bulge. The squared-off profile of the rear of the slide and the rear sight do make it a little more difficult to draw quickly from tight pockets. I feel these are worthwhile tradeoffs to have the power of seven 9mm cartridges as opposed to six or seven .380s or five .38s.

    The jeans I wear the pockets are too tight for a gun. It will fit in there, but prints terrible(even with holster) and would take a long time to draw. The grip gets hung. Plus my pockets are already full of crap that I carry on a daily basis anyway(keys, knife, ink pens, flashlight, coins and bills).
    I prefer IWB.
    In dress pants that are a looser fit, I could probly get away with pocket carry.

    PM-9 is perfect for an IWB holster. Pocket carry a little big, although in cargo pants it might work. I picture a pocket carry like LCP, Seacamp.

    I used to pocket carry a PM9. It worked fine with large shorts pockets, but I'd switch to IWB with jeans or tighter fitting pants.

    I know you are looking for a pic in the pocket but this is the best I can do for now. I agree with others who have said it's a tight fit. In cargo pants/shorts no problem. In jeans, forget it, but I don't think you can really carry any gun in jeans pockets, at least I can't.

    I carry mine in my pocket daily in my Carhart Jeans. No holster. It is not an issue unless I am sitting down, and if I am, I am conscious about putting my hand, or arm against my leg to cover it up.

    I would really advise the use of a pocket holster for pocket carry.

    LCP in a Nemesis is obviously there, just not very clear what it is. Jeans are the worst with short pockets and tight thigh cuts. It takes a really relaxed fit to make it not show at all.

    I'm looking to IWB or something for winter carry, and not wearing jeans for casual summer. "Looks like a wallet" is still too obvious for me.

    Ever heard of not putting your booger hook on the bang stick? Give me a break.

    I carry the PM9 in Tactical 511 shirts. They have a pouch behind the pockets. Very comfortable.

    That should be added to the top 4 rules of gun safety.

    Try submitting it to the NRA. :) Then we could have the 5 rules of gun safety.

    I don't see how looking like a wallet could be too obvious. If you think that an LCP is unsuitable for pocket carry, you are most definitely in the minority. And by minority, I mean, you are the only person I have ever seen complain about pocket carry LCP in my extensive forum surfing about the LCP.
