He has been really good to me in the past and really apologetic about this. In an effort to make up for it he is looking frantically for an XDs or he will sell me a Kahr CW9 for cost and throw in some extra's if I don't want to wait for an XDs.

Until this thread, I had never given Kahr a thought because of the price, but now it looks like I can get one for under $400 with all the stuff I was going to have to pay extra for with the XDs.

What is the consensus on the quality of Kahr CW9? I am kind of liking this turn of events and am really considering it.
Personally I would wait for the xds!

Maybe the mushiest trigger I've ever fired was on a CW9. Very long pull. Kahr makes some good stuff, but in my opinion this is their weakest offering.

I've been nothing but impressed with the XDs and Shield.

I do t love the trigger on the cw either. The Xds is a solid performer. But I would still say give the Nano some consideration as well. I'd choose IT over the cw9 again Ina heartbeat.

Kahr is a good option. Probably number 2 on the list. Kahr also has excellent customer service. I've owned one, but I would wait for the xds if your dealer will cut you a deal on it

I have the Kahr CM9. I love it. I pocket carry mine in a pocket holster. But it would be really easy to carry IWB too. Mine has not given me any trouble. This is the first thread I have seen where someone complained about a Kahr.

Buy the Kahr and don't look back.

Weigh it carefully. Shoot the kahr. You may not like the trigger. And bottom line is, get what you really want and don't settle. If you want the xds, then wait for it. If it doesn't matter then go for the best deal

We need a range report sir
I also love my xds 45, and was also thinking about getting one in 9 for the wife but then said to myself.... I think we should get two one for her and one for me!! Unless she doesn't like it then it will just be mine by default.

I just compared all the guns mentioned except the Nano. I did not like the looks of the Nano so I left it out. The trigger on the Kahr is very long and breaks very close to the back of the trigger guard. Same with the PF9 but the trigger was very jerky. The trigger on the LC9 was about the same as the Kahr. The XDs 9 and the Shield are almost identical in size and the triggers were about the same. The Shield was 4 oz lighter than the XDs and over $100 cheaper. I bought the Shield and yes the trigger needs some smoothing. The XDs is a very nice gun but I would buy the 45 not the 9. I am still considering the 45. The 45 is 1.5 oz lighter than the 9 and about $40 cheaper. The weight difference is in the barrel. The XDs 45 & 9mm barrels are the same outside diameter. The trigger on the XDs 9 was not as good as my XD45c. The recoil on the Shield was not bad and it pockets pretty well in my cargo shorts. One you left out was the Sig P938 and at $869 + tax I passed on it too even though it was the nicest one there. I have the P238 and it is very nice for a 380. I put 50 rounds of hardball and 50 rounds of xtp's through the shield without any malfunctions using both mags.

The original weight of the xds is wrong! Well in .45 anyway. It actually weighs 21.4 oz. again that is for the .45. The 9 actually weighs a little more due to the extra steel in the barrel
