I've shot the Kahr CW-9, 40 and 45 and loved them all. I was really impressed by easily handled the Kahr CW-45 is. No more kick than the CW-40, which was easily managed. Nice package. My better half had great difficult racking the slide on any of the Kahr models, unfortunately. So, for the present, those are out of contention for her. Me, on the other hand -- I've got an XD 9SC and an XD 40. I thought I'd carry the XD 9SC, but man its heavy. I've purchased a super-tuck holster and will see how that works. I was really surprised when I tried appendix carry and found it to be comfortable and concealable. Anyway, in search of a lighter carry gun, I may go for the Kahr's assuming research and people's opinions say they are as reliable as the SA XD's and more reliable than the Sig.
