I am carrying a Kahr CM9 with Crimson Trace laserguard right now. The pistol is only about $400, though extra mags are about $30 or more. The trigger reset is almost all the way out, but that makes every trigger pull consistent and predictable.
I love my Kahr!
One suggestion I have if you go with a Kahr: Buy a new one! Their warranty goes away for the second owner.
