I had a PF9.....was completely inaccurate and unreliable, then the barrel broke. KelTec has had it 6+ weeks and still no gun. I bought a Kahr CM9 and LOVE IT!!! Paid $399.99 for it new at a gun show right before everything went crazy. Also have two Ruger LCP's and love them as well. i know you're probably not looking for a mouse gun, SO I told you that to tell you this......

long story short I had a house fire and my LCP was melted in my wife's purse. Wasn't bad, just looked nasty and wanted it checked out. Magazine and handle got melted but mag still dropped out and everything seemed to move and laser was messed up. So I called Ruger, they sent me a shipping label at no charge.....they had it barely a week and a half!!!! Mailed it back with a letter that said they replaced basically everything except used my slide, barrel and serial number AND the shot it 30 times and it functioned flawlessly. Even gave me a brand new mag AND a spanking new LASER and installed it for me and shipped it back in a fresh Ruger box! Barely a week and a half versus over 6 weeks from KelTec......needless to say I'm a HUGE Ruger fan now.

The Sig p290rs is awesome awesome awesome... 142 rounds and absolutely zero issues of any kind (114 of blazer brass 124GR and 28 of speer gold dot 124GR). Very easy recoil to manage even with two-finger grip. Conceals very well. DAO so very safe to carry. Comes with 6 round mag, 8 round extended mag for full grip, factory night sights, and paddle holster (nice but not practical). only 1/4" longer than a bodygaurd 380 and just under 1/4" wider...same height with flush mag (and its a 9mm!). . feels great on the hip. All for about $460. get great sig service and lifetime warranty. Love it!

I like the clip for a single action. You might like it for your double action, if you feel comfortable without a holster around the trigger guard.

I have DeSantis Nemesis for all my pocket holsters. Although I'm thinking about switching to Sticky holsters for in pocket. I'm looking for a closed end holster.

Kahr has a great warranty and customer service from my experience and from what I've heard. They told me they would check my CM9 out and more than likely fix any minor things at no charge BUT they wouldn't send me a shipping label like Ruger and I doubt they'd replace if after a fire as Ruger did. I haven't sent it in yet, but plan to fairly soon.

I plan to buy a N82 holster for the Kahr as soon as I get it checked out.

I really like Old Faithful Holsters. You can assemble the kit yourself (extremely easily, I might add) and save yourself a bunch of money. I have one for my S&W M&P9c and absolutely love it. High quality, affordable, tremendous warranty, nothing bad can be said.
