Appendix Holster for 3"?

I'm about the place an order for a 3" DAO K6s. But holsters for the 3" seem few and far between, and even less so for IWB and appendix carry. Anyone know who makes an AIWB holster for the K6s 3"?

bassJAM, welcome to the site from Tennessee.

A K6 owner will have to help with a holster recommendation.

Can't help bassjam, as I'm one of the guys who has always wondered why anyone would want to carry a lethal weapon in a position that pointed the muzzle at the one 'package' that cannot be replaced, and the very last place on my body I would never want to get shot....ever!

Call me a confirmed 4:00 IWB user.


Welcome to the forum; hope you find a suitable holster for your needs.

I've tried carrying at 4:00, and no matter the gun or holster or belt my back hurts after a couple hours. Appendix carry is a tough mental thing to get over. Right now I've got a SIG P938 and I KNOW it isn't going to shoot me there with the safety on, but the concern is always in the back of my mind. I used to carry an SP101 though and never gave it a second thought, so I'd just feel more comfortable carrying a revolver AIWB again and I've lusted after the Kimber since it was launched.

Well, there's absolutely no worries about a revolver discharging when worn AIWB, that much is certain.

I'm very fond of my P938 too, and would agree with you about it not firing when not intended, but a cocked 'n locked anything pointing at 'the package' would still worry me. The revolver decision for this mode of carry is certainly a sound one.

Hope you find "the one".

Thanks, I somehow forgot they made holsters other than the Nemisis.

Bought the gun yesterday, waiting for it to ship to my FFL.

There may be others, I just stopped at the first brand I found with a decent reputation.
