Default Kahr CM9.

About a week or so ago my wife and I went out to a few gun stores to try on some new guns. She has been carrying a Sig Sauer P238 in her purse. I'm a big fan of that little gun, however the .380 is not an inspiring defense round. I'm not a fan of the 1911 style manual of arms in a carry gun either. I prefer simple guns, which is why my carry guns are Glocks, or my LCR. She tried out the Glock 26, S&W M&P9C, Walther PPS, Kel Tec PF-9 and Kahr PM9 to name a few. She's leaning more toward single stack 9mms, because she wants to carry IWB after our daughter is born (she's 9 months pregnant). She really liked the Kahr PM9. A friend of mine carries a Kahr PM40 as his backup, and I've put a good many rounds through it. It's a handfull, but I figured the 9mm would be a nice balance.

Today, after shooting 100rds through my duty gun (Glock 21) at the open range, I went to the gun store. They had a new Kahr CM9 on the shelf. I look at it, and the tag says $565. I ask the guy what he can do on price, and he says $410. So I call the wife up and have her bring her Sig up to the store for a trade in. I get $350 for the sig, and 4 free range passes. I take the gun straight out of the box, no cleaning, no lube, no nothing. I fired 100rds of Winchester white box 115gr FMJ, 100rds of PMC 115gr FMJ, and 10rds Winchester 125gr +P PDX1 JHP. There were no malfunctions at all. I expected there to be some, because Kahr's are knows to need a good brake-in period. The gun was run hot too, so hot I burnt my support hand thumb on it several times, and eventually had to bring it down against the frame. The gun also shot fantastic. I couldn't be more impressed with it. It handled well, even with the +P carry ammo. The sights are fast, and the trigger is amazing.

The lower left target was the first 15rds through the gun at 5 yards. Dissregard the lower right, it's got some .45 and .22lr in it. The center target is well over 100rds from 7 yards, rapid fire. The top left is 7 yards fairly rapid. The top right is 10rds of carry ammo rapid fire.

The CW and CM series here go for 409 for the 9mm and 420 for the 40 and 45 so you got a good deal. Now take that nice pistol a[part includeing the mags and give a cleaning a lub job. You have great CC pistol. I carry one

I just bought a kahr cm9 a few weeks ago and was having a few problems with it so I had to send it off to kahr. I got the little guy back and ran 300 flawless rounds through it so hopefully soon I can carry it, I just personally want to put about another 150 flawless rounds through it and then it will go everywhere with me

Ran another hundred rounds of PMC FMJ through it today. 50 head shots at 7 yards, and 50 center mass shots at 15 yards, all fast fire.

It's all combat style shooting, but even so, I still out-shot my carry G23.
