    I own a Kahr MK9, PM9 and a Glock 19. I used to own a Glock 27.

    If both are equally comfortable for you, I would choose the Glock every time. That being said, the Glock isn't as comfortable for me, so I almost always carry a Kahr PM9. It's the one gun that is comfortable and light enough for me to "forget" about it.

    Why not keep them both? Why do you have to sell one?

    Well I am not worried about anyone's gun collection or choice of edc handgun except for my own. I say choose what works for you, and the Glock 26 is always a wise choice. Night sights and 10+1 capacity versus no night sights and 6+1 capacity, both conceal equally as well as the other one, even though I carry a Kahr CW9 the Glock 26 gets the nod here!
    God bless our troops!

    My Kahr is easier to carry and conceal, but if I had to get rid of one... the Kahr would be gone in in -2 seconds... Yes, negative 2 seconds.

    Glock.

    I have owned 3 Kahrs, including 2 PM9s. All my Kahrs had issues - which is why I no longer have them.

    Even if your Kahr runs perfectly (and I hope it does) - you have a gun with a different manual of arms that you need to train around. Example - I have always trained to use the overhand method to chamber a round, but with the Kahr, the manual says you need to use the slide release to ensure reliable feeding of the first round. There is more, but you get the idea. Is it worth fumbling around while under stress with something different than what you are used to, for a smaller gun? For some it is - but not for me.

    I think you made a wise choice keeping the Glock.

    The slide release method is the most foolproof for chambering any semi auto I believe. I use that with my MK9 and it runs flawlessly while trying the overhand method once caused a FTF. I also use that method with my XD9sc (sorry but the G26 didn't "fit" me as well even though I liked it (as well as the G30)) so that my "method" remains the same...every time.

    JMHO.

    Re: all of the digression in this thread, it appears way off topic...no?

    Actually, most trainers recommend the overhand method of chambering a round. You're less likely to flub a reload under stress doing that, than trying to hit a small button or lever on your pistol.

    You are correct, 10thmtn, most trainers do teach that and the reasoning you provide is sound.

    But .... Kahr recommends htting the slide release lever and letting the slide hammer forward to chamber a round. I wasn't sure of it when I first read that in their product manual, but after asking Kahr direct, they backed that up: they want you to chamber the first round by releasing the lever.

    My good friend, you really don't want that Glock. Its a piece of junk, a waste of money. I'll take it off your hands for you for $50.
    A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    That's right. So the question to ask yourself, if you own a Kahr (that requires the use of the slide release) and other pistols (which can be racked using the overhand method) is...are you going to use different techniques for different pistols? (bad idea)...or are you going to use the lowest common denominator and use the slide release on all of them, because that is the only reliable way to load a Kahr? IMHO that is also a bad idea, because under stress, the overhand method is better.

    Thus - my congratulations to the OP for deciding to keep the Glock and sell the Kahr...
