I carry a CW9 everyday. It is long in the grip for pocket carry, but I do carry it in an Uncle Mike's #3. Cargo shorts or pants with large pockets. For me it carries best IWB using a Comp-Tac CTAC holster. I have 700 rounds down range, no problems! I bought a slip on Hogue grip. The polymer Kahr pistols have a very aggressive front and rear grip treatment. I am not a revolver shooter, so I needed more than 50 rounds to understand the trigger. It has the smoothest double action trigger I have ever pulled. I love to shot this pistol and it is first place CCW in front of my other pistols. You can not lose with either model CW9 or P9. I have also shot the PM9 and MK9. Also great pistols, I think I have better control with a full length grip. You should try both sizes.
