    Mika or Desantis? Both was the right answer!

    I have and use both Mika round and square bottom... and desantis nemesis for j frame scandium 340 SC and Kahr P9, PM9's.

    I prefer the Mika for the Kahrs: the hold open feature holds back your pocket to it is easy to clear the weapon in a hurry, and the kahr shape doesn't lend itself to sliding out.

    On the other hand, like others above, the withdrawal is so slick that I too found my 340 on the floor of my car, or worse, sitting next to me in the restaurant! :uhoh:! The nemesis will not do that.

    At first, the nemesis sticks to the gun and requires a good swipe against your pocket top seam to leave it in the pocket, but over a few weeks it adaptes to the gun, loosens up in just the right way... and provides just enough grab to keep the gun in my pocket.

    My scandium J weighs 15 oz loaded, and the Kahr 21 ounces loaded... and that 30% increase gets me back to the J frame periodically. Then I go to the range and fire my first cylinder of lifesavers... right out of the pocket, as I would to save my life... and that light little bugger always shoots 6" high as I relearn how to control 15 ounces of dynamite. Not good, Batman. So I am mostly carrying the Kahr which is less likely to do so out of pocket. And 7 rounds of 440 ft pounds better than 5 rounds of 250-290 ft. pounds any day.

    Just my $.02

    if i may, the Safariland model 25 is a fine pocket rig, it is very thin and conceals well, however....it costs a whopping $25.00 and is not ambidextrious.

    My gunsmith friend carries his 642 in a Nemesis. It's well used--and it's a limp rag that flops around; he carries it in his offisde hip pocket.

    I have both a Nemesis and a Mika for my M&P340. I've only tried the Nemesis once or twice, until my Mika got here for my M&P340. After eight months of use, the Mika still holds its shape nicely. I carry daily in my onside front pocket.
