A friend of mine has a Kahr P-9 and thinks it is a great pistol he carries it all the time. As a result I purchased a Kahr P-380 which I must agree with him it is one of the nicest CCW I own and it is amazingly accurate. It is well worth the money and of good quality, in addition to being light and easily concealable.

I love mine. I'm use to sub compact and compact firearms and I found that it makes a nice complement along side my Ruger SR9c. For me the trigger seems to come back a little too far, but I can manage it especially since it's my backup and range firearm. I've got Talon Grips installed on mine that make it an excellent purchase.

I went for the basic model and bought CM9 409 dollars around here. Also picked up a used CW9. Both have been agood as you could hope for with zero issues. Both have a DA trigger of 6lb but there is no stacking and very smooth pull.

I have a cw9 and it is amazing ccw gun. Very accurate for its compact size and no malfunctions at all. Very easy to conceal also. The only thing was just getting used the trigger pull but after a few times at the range its fine now. It just has a longer trigger than i was used to but i figure its like that since there is no traditional safety

Have had a PM9 for more than two years. Love it. Carry it a lot in my pocket in the hot summer. Also carry it owb sometimes on my belt in a TT Gunleather high ride. It disappears completely. Also have Kahr p380 and MK40 elite. I love the Kahrs.

Tried a Kahr MK9 trigger today (dry firing) and I have to say I'm impressed.

It is comparable to some very nice DA revolver actions I have fired (S&W - Ruger) and might even be better.

Time will tell after some live fire on the range with the Kahr.

Be Well.

The 9mm "micro" market has been expanding over the last year or two, but no gun has both the qualities and track record of the PM9...well, except maybe the $1000+ Rohrbaugh.

The PM9 is probably the best (reasonably priced) pocket 9mm out there.

The $300 Kel-Tec PF9 is a proven performer, with a cheaper feel. Ruger's LC9 is also in this class.

I think the Kimber Solo has the potential to (eventually) rival the PM9 at a similar price, but they've got kinks to work out yet.

It is the absolute BEST pocket 9mm. It is pretty darn small, but a little bit blocky.

I used to own a PM9 and now own a P380 (with a couple others in between there). The PM9 is actually a little too large, still, to be a super comfortable pocket gun for me. In dress slacks it really doesn't least not like the Ruger LCP does.

If you must carry a 9mm in your pocket, then the PM9 is the one. However, for my 2 cents I say get a smaller pocket pistol (LCP or P380) and then jump up a step to the Kahr P9 or CW9 ($200 less!!!!). That way you get another round in your mag and a longer barrel for velocity, but it is still the same width as the PM9.

Just a thought...and everyone has one.

Actually I have a sig 238 .380 and it's identical in size as the pm9 but the pm9 steels it up to a 9mm, that's why I consider the pm9 as pocket carry because I currently carry my 238 in there
