Best pocket holster for Kahr P380?

I really liked the High Noon holster I bought for my Walther PPS 9mm.
Totally blacked out and the trigger is completely protected by the holster.

I was looking at the pocket holster they offer for the Kahr P380 but I
don't like that it is not totally black. There are times when leaving work in the dark that I want to "holster up". I like an all black holster with an all black gun because I think it is very hard for someone in another car to see me doing so.
(Don't want to "scare the horses in the street" as my late dad would say.)

Can you recommend a quality, all black pocket holster for the Kahr P380?
(With excellent trigger protection).

I, and some buddies, use the DeSantis Nemesis. Does the job. All black. Hides trigger.

+1 for the DeSantis Nemnesis holster...

A big +1 for the DeSantis Nemnesis pocket holster. It conceals well and is easy to clean.
The newer Superfly may conceal the semi auto pistol better but I like the open top Nemnesis.

See www.NatchezSS.com .

My answer, not your question.

I made a mistake so I deleted my answer. Sorry. I recommended a Hedley holster, but I don't think they make one for the P380.

I have a pocket holster from Kahr that is all black, and in the back pocket, looks like a wallet. It is not a quick draw rig, but it works, and insures that the gun is concealed and always with me.

I just got one from Bear Creek, sort of a convertible in that the anti-print panel is attached by two screws which, when removed, make it a front-pocket holster. Nice leather work, good boning, great fit (you can hold it upsidedown and a loaded gun will not fall out). Very good price and service, got mine less than two weeks after an on-line order:

I love the Nemesis. I put it in my back pocket and it just disappears!

Four pages of them on the Kahr website;

I use a Mika pocket holster that was made for a j frame Smith. Conceals well and comes out fast. Goes back in with one hand. I also use the "Beltster" by Bandera Gun Leather Co. It is my main way of carrying since I live in a warm climate and can wear my shirt tail out. Mostly a Kahr MK40 but works for my P380 too.

I build both a front pocket and convertable front/back pocket holster for the Kahr P380. The convertable holsters features a removable anti-print back panal secured with DOT duarable duty snaps.

Front pocket vs rear...

I seem to get impression that, for whatever reason, back pocket carry is more popular with the pocket holsters.

Let's focus on the DeSantis Nemesis for now.
Can it be carried in the front or the rear pocket?
I think only front pocket will work for me.
If I go bicycling, I don't to be sitting on a gun!
(Doesn't sound very comfortable).

Recluse pocket holsters are excellent.

I also see that many people on here carry in the back pocket. I only carry in the front. I have pocket carried Colt Government .380's and a Bersa CC model .380. Perhaps if I had a Kel-tec .380, I may consider back pocket carry???? But then again, I don't like sitting on my wallet, let alone a pistola. Bad for the back.

Might want to check out the RKBA leather front pocket holster. I'm really pleased with mine for my P238. And yes, it's available in all BLACK

I've tried the Uncle Mike's and Nemesis and I ended up going back the leather as they just didn't do it for me like leather did. Got a real nice one from www.rkbaholsters.com and have been very pleased with it.
