Would appreciate it. My current weighs 30oz Unloaded and I'm looking at one that weighs 16oz. Almost half!

I'm going the other way, starting with an 8-oz 5-shot .22 Magnum. Looking to graduate to a 11-oz, 7 shot .22 magnum. It's tough to conceal big heavy stuff in Florida.

That's still tiny! I'm carrying 30oz! Lol

But not in summer! My shorts can only conceal very small guns. Don't know why but the brands I buy have midget pockets in them. Lol

I pocket carry the Kahr CM9. It weighs in at just under 16 oz. It shoots like a dream. I can keep them in the center of an idpa target at 15 yards pretty easily. It is not a long distance gun though. I can hit a poker card at 20 yards with either my Ruger P95 or with my 1911. That is not going to happen with a compact gun like that.

I carried a Kahr PM 40 in a pocket holster for a BUG. Easy to carry but hard to control. Quality gun but beyond bad breath distance it was slow to get back on target because of recoil. I have it up for sale at my LGS.

I find the PM9 is very controllable. But considering what my XDM 40 was like, I don't think I would like the 40 in such a small package.
