Holster for Summer Carry Kahr P40

I have a Kahr P40 that I would like to CCW this summer with a light shirt over it like an untucked t shirt.

I could go with a Milt Sparks, but for this gun, I would like something more like $80-$120, leather(I think, but I could be swayed), easy on/off, and really comfortable to carry..

Any ideas? What do you use? Looking for something which hides the butt well.

Concealed simple strong side holsters...

Do you want custom? Kydex or polymer? Leather? Open style or level II?...
For your pistol, Id check these popular brands; Galco, Bianchi, Alessi, DeSantis, Kramer Leather, Don Hume, Safariland, High Noon Holsters.

Kydex or leather ok. Open style with no thumb break.

Custom or off the shelf, as long as the grip is held tight to my body.

I'd suggest a metal or polymer band to aid 1 handed re-holstering....

I'll dig around too just for fun. I'd suggest a holster with a metal band or maybe a bodyshield to aid re-holstering.

High Noon Down Under. This model comes with either straps,





...or a J hook,





Brown version is in your price range,

And the leather is top notch - I use that top rig every day of the week, even in hot AZ summer weather.

Kahr Forum

Some people over at the Kahr Forum, and me, think a lot good thoughts about pjholsters. He advertises that he will, within reason, custom make Kydex holster the way you want it made.

Since, at that time, I spent a lot of time seated behind the wheel, I asked for a more fwd rake and slots for a 1 3/4" belt with some wiggle room. After a couple of conversations all the details were nailed down. As received, the pistol 'clicks' into place, has the requisite 'fat tab', fits a 1 3/4" thick belt, and a more fwd rakish presentation angle.

Price was reasonable as was the delivery time.

Good stuff.

Thanks; AM....

Big ups to AM for the HighNoon Holster pics.

That could do well.
I looked into a Skin-Tite holster for my PX4 Storm(C format) 9x19mm in 2009.

Has anybody tried both High Noon heights? I'm wondering which would be better for me...

Thanks for the pics.

Well...if you want adjustable height...this one costs a WEE bit more, but has 6 adjustments in the front, 5 in the rear, and can go from standard IWB to aa tuck-able IWB with just a slip of the clip.
