    Flawless!

    All of the Kahrs' are great for CCW. All three I have owned are
    very easy to carry "thin", plus accurate, and reliable.

    I use the TW25B for lubrication. Less maintenance, and reliable.

    I also highly recommend the Corbon DPX, or Pow'r-Ball - in any
    of the Kahr models.

    Ok, At this time I am carrying the P45 - solid black w night sights.

    Gloves up!

    Yes, I have one.
    Yes, I like it.

    I had some light strikes early on. I cleaned the firing pin chamber and replaced the spring. None since.

    There are a number of single stack 9mms, none in this price range that I'd consider though.

    Yes.
    Yes.
    Yes.
    None.

    The CW9 is one of the best deals going for a concealed carry piece right now. And, if you have 9mm issues, you can always get it in .40S&W and it is exactly the same size.

    While firing the first one hundred rounds through this pistol I experienced two instances of failure to return to battery. Meaning that the slide did not travel all the way forward after stripping a round from the magazine and chambering.

    The failure was remedied by slight pressure from my support hand thumb on the back (end) of the slide, which moved the slide approximately one-quarter of an inch. Resumed firing.

    The above-referenced range session consisted of firing three hundred rounds, total, and lasted about two hours. No other failures during that session nor in any range session since.

    This gun has now consumed almost one thousand rounds, consisting of WWB 115 gr. FMJ (probably 700 rounds), WWB 147 gr. JHP (150 rounds), and 100 rounds of 124 gr. Federal Hydra-Shok (TM) JHPs.

    I like it really well. It is my primary carry-gun. Carried at the 3:30 position either IWB or OWB.

    own two

    Have two kahrs with literally thousands of rounds down range and to date , not one issue. Best damn gun I ever carried, top quality.

    The the two para carry 9 voters, I owned one and loved it for accuracy but 3 times back to para in less than 3 months told me to peddle it . bought the PM9 and 17,800 rounds later, still looking for that first issue..
