Howdy folks. I got the PF-9 last year, did the fluff and buff, and loved it with the MIC carrying AIWB, but I thought it could use some stability.

Introduce the infamous Belt Clip from Kel Tec. I decided to go with the factory one because it carries a little higher with the factory belt clip, which I prefer. Anyway, I realized really quickly that the MIC and the Belt Clip weren't going to play well together without some serious adjustments.

I busted out the dremel and the pocket knife, and ten minutes later I had my perfect carry system for AIWB.

I present to you, a chop job worthy of the KTOG.

Does the MIC Holster still retain enough grip to hold the pistol when dangling from the cord? While trigger cover is a primary function of the MICH, retaining the pistol if it were to slip is a nice feature. I intentionally dropped mine down my pants when it was so hot that I had to take my outer shirt off and the T shirt was too short to conceal it when bending and lifting items.

It has very tight retention. I check it by hanging it from it's cord and bouncing it with a full mag, and it has never budged under any realistic drop.

I guess your concerned about pistol going off with out trigger covered . I have carried with pocket clip the 32 and 380 for years , I can't see any way that trigger going to get pull far enough to fire and YOU NOT notice their a problem.
Pistol is pointed down If something is pushing on trigger thru pants . Its also going to be pushing the pistol UP out of pants If pushing that hard. . I think somewhere, as this happens . Your going to notice this . I see these as a solution to a problem that doesn't exist . And could it real time of need be a hindrance .
I ve only carried for little over 30 years, revolvers and semi autos, as a civ. So still may not have it all figured out . I have a PF-9 IWB now while sitting here. . It hasn't went bang yet. Because I haven't pulled the trigger .
Sometime I think people over worry a non problem . Bet a lot of KelTecs 32, 380, 9, and 40 are carried every day with just the pocket clip . I have never heard of any one shooting themselves . If was happening be a injury lawyers dream, and clips would soon no longer be for sale . Remember KT are not only one be sold this way. A grips for revolvers and pocket clips for about every semi auto made.

Just a old mans opinion .

Call it a habit, if you like, but it gives a lot of people peace of mind. The reason I like the MIC is precisely because it is not a hindrance to my draw and carry technique. I understand the risk of ADs with this pistol is low, but I'm not willing to bet my femoral artery on my own limited understanding of the possible ways that I could have an AD.

Since my other pistol is a Glock, a pistol famous for biting people in the leg, I was already in the habit of carrying with the MIC before I even considered the PF-9.

I've actually tried to simulate an AD with my PF-9, and I was unable to induce even a slight trigger pull. You're right, it is a heavy pull, and would be difficult to do by accident without the pistol moving in my belt. But I'm capable of imagining some situations wherein the MIC protects me. It costing me very little, and affecting my draw in no way that I can perceive, I see little reason to forego the peace of mind it provides.

I'm pretty old too, and I've learned stuff can happen that "I never thought
'o that!".

Not familiar with the MICs, but looks like you could tailor the pull-off by lanyard length and attachment point.

I'd never recommend the belt clip carry to a new shooter, since we're free associating. And, owning both a PF-9 and a P-11--I do feel a bit more comfortable with the belt carried P-11, due to it's "are you really sure you want to do this" trigger pull.

And yeah...if you blow out a femoral artery, even with a .32, you have a good probability
of buying the farm, even if in USA, and someone calls 911 a second later.
