    Both MrsDoc and I carry Ruger LC9's with CT lasers, but we're going to try a couple of different Kahr's.

    I ordered a new CM9 and a CW9 from Bud's tonight.

    We'll see how those work for us.

    Due to the position of the mag releases, we're both dropping mag's mid-string.

    And you know what they say, "The loudest sound in the world is 'CLICK' during a gunfight".

    Here's a great size/feature chart from mouseguns.com

    I had a PM40 for a while a year or so ago, and it shot very well. It was just a little too thick for my SmartCarry system.

    We'll see how the CM9 carries.

    MrsDoc gets the CW9.

    I am completely surprised at the popularity of the CM9. I have one and love it, but everywhere you look there's a thread going on the virtues of the Kahr's.

    That PM40 was a great little shooter and well made. Excellent trigger, too.

    It was just too thick for the way I carry a BUG.

    I think the CM9 is thinner by a bit.

    When I first became interested in guns, I had never heard of Kahr only the well know names like Smith and Wesson, Glock and Ruger. I thought Kahr was more of an economy brand. I soon found out what all the fan fare was about, now I have a PM9.

    moreisless I had not seen a kahr till a friend said he was selling a junk cw9. I never had a junk pistol so I bought it clean up lubed well and shot everthing I feed it . Liked it so much i bought the cm9.

    When only a pocket pistol will do the cm9 is my choice and I iwb the cw9 2:15 carry position. Nice controlable pistols for there size. If you have not tried there ammo Georgia arms new 124gr +P ammo runs well and is fast and they us the gold dot bullets . They do call it as speer's bonded unicor bullet. Good price to at around 25 bucks for 50 rounds. They do hit the gun shows too.

    I grabbed a Polish Radom P64 at the last gun show for $201 out-da-door. Almost identical to Walther PPK in size and form, shoots 9X19 Makorov rounds (6+1) Compact, blended edges, great for pocket carry. IWB, I forgot I even had it on last outing. Shoots nice POA, safety decocker, weighs 32oz. Give them a look...

    Beretta 21a, bobcat 8 stingers on target in 2sec & run. get the drop. carry 24/7. non confrontational . Practice often because it's cheap. Low profile.

    Yep, Kahr is one of the best kept secrets in the handgun world.

    I live in Atlanta and a lot of my shoting friends get stuff from Georgia Arms

    I now carry a PM9 one most of the time. The trigger is a very long smooth release much like a double action revolver with a great action job. At 30' my Kahr will shoot as accurately as any gun in my collection with very few exceptions. I added a Pearce extension to one of my mags for a better grip. Go here for a lot of good info on these great guns. http://kahrtalk.com/forum.php
