    The gun has an internal striker block that prevents an accidental firing by dropping the gun.

    The trigger has a relatively long pull compared to many other guns. Kahr triggers have either a 3/8" or 1/2" pull...all at around 7lbs.

    The whole Kahr line is made for CC and quick deployment; that is, draw, aim and pull the trigger. Keeping it simple so to speak.

    Kahr is bringing out a line with a manual safety in order to make them eligible for sale in certain states.

    Just my opinion but I think the CW series by Kahr is about the best value on the market today. You can pay more money but I don't think you get any more gun. Kahr customer service is also way above average.

    I too have shot both and truly cannot see or feel the difference---P9s are costly in my area and CW-9s are much cheaper to buy---we (me, my wife and my brother) purchased three CW-9 pistols and aside from the "magazine drop" problem (fixed with new mag releases and their springs (supplied free by Kahr) all now run 100% and shot right to point of aim. Slim and lightweight with very fine DAO trigger action, I can recommend them!

    CW9 +1. It really is a great pistol. For CCW I think the constant double action trigger is much easer to master than double/single. Not the same as your duty pistol, but does the job off duty.

    CW9 +1 more. Everything said already and a great buy for around $400.00! I had the P9 before and foolishly traded it, and now my CW9 more than makes up for that mistake.
    God bless our troops!
