As I write this, it is a few months short of two years since I wrote the first part of this High Noon holster review. I mentioned that I would report back at a later date on the holster. Time to make good on that promise.
Let me start by saying that since acquiring my Slide Guard holster, I haven't conceal carried any of my other handguns but two or three times. Long story short, my Kahr PM9 and Slide Guard holster makes for one heck of a great CCW setup.
Given that I work at a location where the security is dictated by the federal
government, I am not allowed to CCW on the property nor can I leave a firearm in
a vehicle. So....with my work schedule, the I wear the holster 3 days per
week (I work a 4 day schedule). It goes everywhere I go. I won't
spend money at a business that hangs anti-gun signs at their entrance.
Here is a photo of the Slide Guard holster and my PM9. It has a few
scrapes and scratches on it, but nothing that makes it any less the holster it
was when I got it. It has retained its shape very well. I don't know
how they get that horsehide to mold to the shape of the PM9 like that but
however they do it, it sure works.
Here is a back side view of the holster. As you can see, the Slide
Guard does just what I mentioned nearly two years ago....that being keeping the
PM9 and me separate from each other. I realize it may look kind of bad,
but it is just the color the holster has taken on being next to me a lot.
I wear a cover garment about 99% of the time without anything underneath it, so
the holster is in fact up against my skin. When working outside, I do
admit I can work up a good sweat. At the same time, the horsehide doesn't
take on any of it. I imagine that some saddle soap would clean it up
although without asking High Noon
about it, I would hesitate to do it.
The Slide Guard holster does a great job of retaining the PM9. I've not had to adjust the tension screw since I first put the holster on my belt. That tells me the leather hasn't stretched which certainly is a sign of a quality product.
That's about it.....not much more to say. The holster works just like
the folks at High Noon said it would. I would recommend this holster to
anyone that is looking for a quality holster from a company that obviously knows
how to do it right the first time around. A big thanks goes out to High
Noon for eliminating the build up of lousy holsters in the bottom storage
