    My advice is get the LC9 (have it, love it) and a S&W Bodyguard .380 (better ergonomics, and comes w/ integrated laser-sight).

    I only wish S&W would make a competitor to the LC9 that smokes it as bad as the Bodyguard did the LCP.

    I carry my LCP daily and love it...BUT, I would have bought an LC9 if they would have been available at the time, but that's just me. I bought an lcp and an m&p 40c; had the LC9 have been out I prob would have just picked one of those up....

    I was holding out to see if Ruger came out with a 40 cal version of the LC9 because I already have too many calibers. Wife drug me to the casino two weeks ago and blackjack was good to me. Stopped by Dad's in Gulfport and picked up the LC9. I like it a lot. Shot it yesterday. I have not got a proper holster for it yet so I have not carried it much. After Christmas I will be ordering a holster (still not sure which one) and will carry it more. I like the size of the LC9 and is easy for me to shoot.

    I was carrying an LC9 in a Remora. Great concealable gun. Not a target pistol. Does what its designed to do. Now carrying an S&W 442 in a pocket holster. I haven't decided which I prefer.lc9 remora.jpg

    I bought the LC9 when they first came out because I liked the LCP and I thought the LC9 would be pretty close to it. I wasn't happy with it and the trigger had problems and had to go back. It felt bigger than I expected and I didn't like the loaded chamber indicator and mag disconnect. I sold it when it came back from Ruger. I'm sure it would have been a fine gun for its purpose but it wasn't for me.
    The Bodyguard is a great gun for the size, it feels much more substantial than it really is and the sites are much better than other small guns.
    I really like the PM9 although I don't own one yet so I can't speak of it but if it's like the others it would be a quality piece and it's very small fans should be easily concealed.

    Concur. The LCP is my preferred BUG. I've found it to be incredibly durable and reliable. I'm sitting on it as I type this, it rides like a wallet.

    After handling the LC9, I can't begin to even draw a comparison. From the stacked trigger, to the thumb safety, and all the other dumb do-hickeys, I have no use for it. There are a bunch of single-stack nines that I'd prefer over the LC9.

    I shot both the LCP and LC9 before I got my LC9.

    The LC9 is far better (my opinion). The LCP is just too small, and the sights are hard to use. Also the LCP is no fun to shoot. my hand starts to sting after a while. I typically put 200 rounds through the LC9 and have a blast. with the pinky exptension the LC9 feels like a full size pistol grip.

    Also - the LC9 is super easy to conceal because of its thin profile. I have no problems hiding it in shorts/tshirt, it is even concealable in basketball shorts and a tank top.

    I bought the crossbreed minituck and it works for me. It will take a little wear time to get it most comfortable

    You forget to mention that many parts, accessories and holsters are ONLY available from Kahr at a STEEP price. The customer serive is a crap shoot at best. I have one Kahr, a PM series gun and will never own another because of those 2 reasons.
    Also don't forget that they are too proud to admit they make mistakes, their CS will tell you there has never been a Kahr recall. Anybody that can do 5 minutes research knows that there was a barrel issue on the PM9's for a while.
