I sold my Glock G27 and I'm looking for something else. I'm currently carrying a S&W .380 Bodyguard. My wife has a M&P 9c that she was going to carry but doesn't yet. I'm really up in the air between the Shield, Walther PPS and maybe the Kahr PM9. I got to shoot all 3 today a the same time back to back at Shoot Straight in Tampa. The Kahr PM9 had feeding issues big time and the 3 other PM9's they had in stock were very rough gritty glitchy catchy slides and all 3 trigger felt different especially in the pull. The store is not happy with the Kahr's for a while they told me because for every 8 pistols Kahr sends them 3-4 have issues. They also said they have issues with the Kahr brand in general and the Sig P290 and they would not recommend those guns to me. The Kahr PM9 I shot today was a used broken in gun and it failed to feed a lot with me....I'd load the mag, rack the slide no feed and re-rack and few time and finally get a round in the chamber but the slide would either lock back after the round was fired or go back into position with out feeding another round into the Kahr. I took all the ammo out of the mag and readed to make sure everything was correct...still FTF's. I sort of lost my trust today in Kahr after feeling the new guns and firing the rental gun. Thoughts on Kahr's????? I'm not getting a great impression. The Shield and PPS shot perfectly, accurate and buttery smooth and felt like great quality guns. Both the Shield and PPS felt good in my hand. This is the 2nd Shield 9mm I've rented and both shot perfectly. The PPS was maybe slightly more accurate for me. I played with these 2 with 100 rounds and just when I thought the PPS shot better I'd then think the Shield shot better. So I'm really up in the air between these 2. The PPS trigger is awesome with a very smooth action and great tactical short reset click. The Shield trigger is smooth too and has a nice tactical reset click but slightly less click than the Walther. That is what I noticed in these 3 guns from my personal experience with them today at the range.
