Hi all,

I posted this in the carry forum but thought I would try here also.

I am interested in a shoulder rig for a Kahr CW9. IWB and OWB wont work for me since I have an ostomy and my pants must fit too loosely to snug a belt holster.

The goal here is to have something that I can wear under a shirt, so an inverted carry or horizontal carry is what I would be looking for. Inverted carry I think preferred.

Tie downs to a belt should be easily removable since most of the time I will be wearing a tucked shirt.

And if the rig worked without tie downs, that would be preferred.

The searches I have done have given many hits but little enlightenment. So, suggestions for a Kahr CW9?

Good results with GALCO.

Different, but I've seen compression t-shirts with a gun pocket side of the chest.

Compression, so the fabric stays tight on you and doesn't sag, and to then hold the gun in place.

Here is a link to an example of one on amazon

Sadly unavailable. I have looked at the chest-band versions with seriousness. Am thinking I would like more flexibility, but there are also many solutions for many situations.

A standard belly-band, no. The ostomy bag is at about2 o’clock along where the waistband of pants go. I can’t restrict the bag, or bad -and very messy- things happen.

I have seen a chest band that has some appeal, I may pick up one of those next time I stumble across the ad for one.

Right now I ordered the Galco rig, but one needs many holsters, and I have way too few.

I have seen the Null holsters and realized I have some contradictory perceived needs - under shirt carry and under sweater/jacket carry.

I have not done any serious shoulder carry before, so I will start with the Galco and expand from there. I may find that shoulder carry is a bit much for my EDC needs and go back to my 380 KelTec pocket carry.
Dunno ... this is going to be a process.

Yeah I agree they are light and are good firearms. I carry P45 all the time.
Want to look at the P45. My “high end” Kahr is the K9 which I like a great deal. I got the CW9 as an EDC because of the lighter weight. But as I get into this, I want to check out the P45 and MK9.

With a smallish gun a type of ‘belly band’ works.
Ostomies enforce carry restrictions. I have pondered if I could add a derringer in my ostomy bag as the ultimate deep cover carry....some access and cleaning issues have delayed this explore.

In the movie "From Russia with Love" James Bond had the most perfect shoulder holster for a Beretta. Look for one like that for years and never found it.

I had the MK9 for awhile but sold it. Prolly should of kept it as it hands down one of the smoothest Kahr. I'm just not a fan of subcompact pistol. Even the P45 is small still and recoil is quite soft. You will like it a lot as need to do nothing but feed it ammo.

Absolutely!

That is what I am really looking for - something that snuggles into the armpit and stays put.

The books had Bond with a Berns-Martin. This is an interesting read:

For the films, it appears that the Galco Executive was used a lot.

A Beretta 70s has been shortlisted as a shoulder-rigged companion too. It remains one of my faves.
