I'm surprised nobody mentioned the Nano til now. I looked long and hard at the Nano a few months ago. I opted to go with a full sized 1911 instead of another CCW and so i continue to use my beretta 84 for CC when I travel. That will all change in the next few weeks however thanks to the firearmstalk big 2012 giveaway today! Woo hoo!!
SIG 1911 .45 ACP
SIG P229R 9mm
Beretta BU9 Nano 9mm
Beretta 84FS .380 ACP
Ruger MKIII 22/45 Target .22LR

PWS (Primary Weapons Systems) MK114 5.56

Be safe and don't shoot your man hood off with an "unsafetied" shooter--lol.
I cant speak of the others. But the Kahr is a true double action gun. The gun is not cocked. The hammer is at rest until the trigger is pulled.
Romans 1:16 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.

I can say this much about pocket pistols, they all have their problems. I don't care who makes the pocket pistol it has the most come backs of any gun in their line up. Once you get a pocket pistol that works, keep it. I know someone that has had problems with all the pistols on your list except the Bersa. I don't know anyone that owns a Bersa.
