    I just went out and handled a Kahr CW9 and I really liked it. I really liked how thin it was. I am thinking of picking one up....$425 new. I currently have an XDSC9 that has been a great gun and has never had any issues, a 92FS which I will never get rid of, and a CZ40P That has had some loading issues. I want to add the CW9 but I would need to get rid of one other gun first per request of my wife....I might be able to pull it off and have her be completely cool with it.

    The XD has been my current carry gun, but I am thinking replacing it with the Cw9??? Thoughts on the gun?

    Thanks
    Joe

    Get rid of the CZ. Then also, you will only have to stock up on one caliber. Simplicity.

    but i love my CZ...:( i dont wanna sell any as they all serve a purpose. the CZ is in the bedroom with the shot gun, xd on my hip, and 92fs stashed on my main floor. The XD could then become winter carry and living room gun....dang it!

    I can't say which to get rid of, but I have a CW9 and a PM9 and they are both solid guns and good shooters. The CW9 pretty much disappears in an IWB holster but still allows a pretty full grip for shooting and decent capacity. The triggers are nice a smooth but a bit long in travel. If I hadn't converted over to 1911s, I'd still be carrying my CW9.

    the big thing for me is I love to wear shorts and a tshirt. The XD, although perfect when running my defense round through it and I am very accurate with it, is a bit bulky for just a t-shirt. I might just buy the Kahr and see what I think of it.

    Go shoot the Kahr and compare it with your XD, then make the decision.

    I have been looking at the PM9 for conceal, but cant pull the trigger on one yet and its been a year now.

    Perhaps you should offer to take your wife shoe and purse shopping. Then, at the store, offer to buy her a new pair and bag (pun intended) if she will get rid of a few old ones; ) My wife has to approve of my pistol purchases too and sadly for me she really liked the last 9mm I bought. I do love the fact that she goes to the range with me now. Could that be the sollution to your present quandry?

    I think I'm almost happier that my wife isn't as into guns as I'd like her to be. She'll come to the range with me on occasion, and doesn't give a flying rat's arse how many guns I own, but she's just not that interested in them herself. But that means she won't confiscate a new gun that I buy :D

    The thing is we are buying a house with in the next year. My brain says..."sweet we have the 20% down plus 20% there in case! Time to buy more guns and fun stuff!" Her brain says we dont know where life will take us so lets have more money in the bank, how many guns do you really need? haha

    Its all good...she is cool with me buying stuff, its just i have really expensive hobbies..:)

    one of the many reasons why I love my wife dearly....went for a walk tonight. Talking about the gun and she asked me..."Could you get rid of the CZ and not regret it at all?" I told her that I like all my guns, but getting the Kahr will fill about a 15% void where I struggle to carry right now. The Kahr would be much smaller and conceal easier. She replied with..."Ok...well dont get rid of any of the guns, and go get the kahr."

    :confused: <----me
    :) <-----Her

    lol

    i wouldn't sell anything to buy a kahr. google reviews, and you'll find their reliability is nowhere near cz/glock/sig/hk.

    I agree, don't sell anything to buy the Kahr. It is nice that you and your wife are true partners and discuss finances and major purchases. There would be a lot less credit problems if this was the norm, if you have a revolving credit balance then pay it down or off first. If you are buying a house then use credit sparingly and pay off all credit card balances monthly, your credit scores will increase and the interest rate on your impending mortgage will be lower. As a result you will save enough over the life of your mortgage to buy a hundred Kahrs, but who would want to.

    Zero Credit Card Debt
    Zero Auto loan debt
    Zero student loan debt
    Our credit is spotless

    The only debt we have is a mortgage payment for our current home. :) What we have above and beyond goes into house down payment, fun account, and retirement. We discuss anything and everything...especially finances. Generally if its below $400 we dont discuss it, but i brought it up because I know that she would want to talk about it.

    I agree about reliability, however my CZ is the only gun in the group that has been giving me issues. I am 99% sure its a weak mag spring, but yeah....I dont carry it or have it in a position where I would depend on it.

    I just posted this in a regret selling thread but also applies here:

    I have a small circle of friends that "buy" each others guns when money is needed.
    We keep these guns within the group and the original owner can "buy" his gun back, for the same amount, at any time.

    Kind of like a private pawn club

    Funny how people with no experience with the pistol in question always seem to pop up and throw in their eperienceless veiw. Both the Kahrs I have had have been flawless, a CW45 and CW9.

    Well, said.

    I DO have experience with Kahrs and ... Berettas and ... XD's (no CZ's). The Kahr trigger is VERY different. Make sure you shoot it before you buy it. It's taken me some time to get used to it.

    I have two Kahr CW9 pistols (one for me, one for wifey)---both run 100% after small problem with mag releases (fixed with new parts free from Kahr)---slim, lightweight, reliable and shoot right to point of aim. These pistols are very easy to hide on your person, they do require some shooting time to get used to the trigger---no big thing---trigger is like a VERY good DAO revolver---run some rounds thru it! PS; Never sell any good guns unless life or death---you will regret it! PPS; my brother also carries a CW9. I should also put in a good word for the Walther PPS 9mm.

    do a google search, not dependable

    I love my kahr, its very dependable

    mine too!

    who said I dont have experience with them?

    do you?

    yes


    banter back and forth doesnt solve anything.:) I want your experience with them, the google reviews you read. stuff like that. 1 word answers back and forth dont accomplish anything.

    make sense? :)
    could you please add your experiences with kahr to my other thread? I would GREATLY appreciate it!

    Thanks
    joe
