    What kind of Kahr do you have and how do you like it?

    Just Kahrs please, no Auto Ordanance guns.

    I own a P40 and I regulary CC it. It has been nothing but reliable with hollowpoint or fmj ammo. Recoil can be a little stiff after 50 or so rounds.

    I own a kahr cw9 shots really well, and is extremly easy to conceal. Holds 7+1 9mm rounds and has not failed to fire or failed to feed ever. I have around 300rds so far. I have heard some issues about kahrs within the first 200rds break in period. The mechanics are really tight making a necessary 200rd break in, as it says in the owner manual. It is an extremly accurate, reliable and so easy to carry, and the CW9 is much cheaper then the other kahrs.

    Stainless kahr K9 owner here. Reliable enough for me to give it to my dad for HD. Unfortunately, a bad experience recently with their Customer Service means that I will never buy another or ever recommend them to anyone again.

    My CW9 had infant mortality issues but has been 100% since Kahr fixed it.

    PM40 is my most frequently carried piece.

    Carry Kahr P9 as a bug. No issues. Weapon has been flawless even in positions of duress (where I am likely to have to use it). Own 3 of them, no trouble with any of them.

    PM9 with about 600rds through it, its been flawless. Its very accurate, the trigger has gone from great to awsome with use, and shoots +P really well. Will definately consider kahr for future purchases.

    Had a K40. 100% reliable, great carry profile, accurate. The only reasons I sold it was that after I got my first Gov't model 1911, I decided i wanted my carry to be the same caliber and format. I was also consolidating to fewer calibers in my collection - no longer own any .40's

    Anyway, I couldn't keep the Kahr and get another 1911 so off it went. Great gun. My decision to get rid of it had nothing to do with its quality and I highly recommend them to those who they "fit".

    Love my PM9, very fun to shoot, and threatening my J-Frame's supremacy for EDC. :)

    PM9 is fairly new, but just ran 300 flawless rounds through it. CW40 has been sent back once and stiffer guide rod spring seems to have taken care of issues.

    My PM9 gets carried more than any other gun. It has been flawless. I added Agrips to it and it made a huge difference.

    I own a PM9 with DLC and night sights, and I love it. Out of 800 rounds or so, it has only had one malfunction. At around round 175, it had a FTF, but a simple tap on the back of the slide made it go bang.

    I am unaware of any other pistol in a major caliber that is this small and has the desirable features of the PM9 (slide stop, real sights, etc.)

    I own several other pistols of various calibers, but the PM9 is the only one that is always with me.

    The only Kahr I've heard that has problems once in a while is the PM40. PM45s are too new to know anything about them.

    I also like it how the people who voted unreliable haven't posted any comments. Almost like they don't own any Kahrs...

    I think at least two people voted for all the options just to see the poll. I should have put an option for that.

    My E9 (c.1999) has always fed everything reliably. It did have a front sight come off and has lately developed some slide lockback issues, but this does not affect actual shooting.

    My PM9 (2006) was unreliable until repaired. Although it took nearly a month before it was returned, it has run reliably since then and is in fact one of my favorite guns for when I just want to slip something in my pocket.

    Agreed.
