    I'm not even going to ask which one has more or less recoil in fear of asking a rhetorical question. What I would like to know or hear about is from any of you that have had the chance to shoot both of these models and what you likes and dislikes of them were. I want to get one for summer carry and I've always leaned towards the 9mm but I do have a .40 and like the caliber.

    Also if anyone has any comparisons with the PM45 that would be a bonus as well. Not really looking for anything specific. Just a good discussion from the those that have had some first hand experience. I have not shot one yet but definitely will before purchasing. I've searched around quite some for Kahr review but the topic of discussion is mainly reliability and I would like a bit more on recoil and accuracy and at what ranges.

    Have a PM9 and like it very much, but haven't shot the 40.

    I've a PM40 whcih I carry a lot. I practice with a CW9. Don't find the PM40 objectionable to shoot, had no trouble running 200 rounds thru it initially in a single outing. But I like the price of 9mm practice ammo better and figure the CW9 has about paid for itself in ammo savings.

    My CW9 had to go back initially but its been fine since. The PM40 had a defective mag catch out of the box, which Kahr send a replacement to me three days from my Email informing them of the issue. Its but fine since, but I carry it a lot more than shoot it, its always worked when I decide its time to refresh the carry ammo -- for me this is the real reliability test, actual daily carry with long intervals between usage and function 100% when tested.
