    How do you like your Sig? I've been considering that for my next carry piece.

    I own an XDs, a PM9 and an LCP, and I have carried them all in my pocket. Naturally the Ruger carries the best, but the Kahr is almost as comfortable. The XDs not so much. XDs is no pocket gun, and outside of being a 45 it is less than remarkable. In a single stack 9, there are many more solutions that I would prefer over an XDs, Kahr just being one of them. HK P7 being another.

    As for Kahr triggers, anyone that would take issue with them has not had enough experience. Kahr has one of the best triggers available. So does the LCP and for the same reason, they are safe, without superflous safeties.

    As for the grip on the Kahr PM9, yes it is small, but it is a small gun, as it was intended to be. Put a Talon rubber grip on it, and it becomes a whole other gun. Ever seen Hickock45 on YT? He has very large hands, and smallish grips are no problem for him because he uses Talon grips. There are myriad solutions to aid with the various compromises with the different handguns available. Exploring them and coming to grips with solutions that allow your personal system to work are all that matters to "You".

    Well, I love it, but I have to qualify that statement with the fact that I haven't fired it yet. I hope I still love it later. But, as for size, and aesthetics, it's fantastic - just what I was looking for. Several problems have been reported with it, but the guys with problems are the only ones you ever hear from.

    I think it's great - it offers features that some people like.

    IMO - it's not a pocket pistol, and neither is the Nano, the Sheild, or the Glock 26.

    Perfect!! It'll fit any holster I buy for the XD-S (.45 Auto) that I have on order ... and it would give me a 7+1 or 9+1 option.

    I carry my XDs in .45 a lot now. I carry it with the flush fitting magazine in the gun and two 7-rounders on the side. They're almost the same size as a 1911 magazine, so all your leather mag holsters will work, kydex and plastic not so much.

    The .45ACP kicks a bit, but isn't bad. Remember, it isn't meant to be a range gun so it might not be comfortable for extended shooting sessions. For its designed purpose, self defense, it kicks just enough. :D
