I too had terrible and expensive experience with a Kahr PM-9. This was ~10 years ago or so.... After hundreds spent trying to break it in, multiple factory returns - Kahr gave me full refund on the price. Went to Glocks and they go bang everytime and eat anything I feed em. It's all about being comfortable with your EDC and it's dependability to function if you ever need it for real. I know lots of folks love their Kahr's - happy for them.
