    I should have mentioned this in the OP, sorry.

    I'm afraid that you are mistaken. The video at that link only shows the new Kimber Solo for the entire video. The Kimber Solo looks like a Kahr PM9 clone. But it is a Kimber, not a Kahr pistol.

    There is nothing at all in the video about a Kahr CM9 at all. The video must have been changed, for it is nothing like what you have described here.

    This new Kimber Solo looks pretty cool, and should really give the Kahr PM9 some stiff competition.

    Here is a photo of it comparing it to the Ruger LCP in size:

    Here is another photo of the new Kimber Solo. I think that 10thmtn is indeed right about the gun. The safety really appears to stick out very wide indeed from the handgun.

    Just take a look here:

    LanceORYGUN , The Kahr is shown and mentioned a little after the minute mark.

    That safety looks like a wing from a jet fighter. Maybe it adds another 100fps to the 9mm.

    Some size comparos...

    Kimber Solo - 5.5 x 3.9, 6+1

    Kahr PM9 - 5.3 x 4 (assume CM9 is the same size?), 6+1

    Ruger LC9 - 6 x 4.5, 7+1

    Sig P290 - 5.5 x 3.9, 6+1

    Kel tec PF9 - 5.9 x 4.3, 7+1

    Rohrbaugh R9 - 5.2 x 3.7, 6+1

    For comparison:

    Glock 26 - 6.3 x 4.2, 10+1

    Ruger LCP - 5.2 x 3.6, 6+1 .380

    Upcoming Boberg XR9s - 5.1 x 4.2 (note that it's 7+1 AND +P rated even at this size)

    As mentioned in the video linked by the OP - these pistols are pushing it for pocket carry. I had two PM9's, and they barely fit some of my pockets. The new offerings are larger/heavier still. IMHO, the only true pocket 9mm is the R9...until the XR9s gets introduced. If you're going to carry one of these in a holster, then you may as well get a G26.

    I'm going to predict that a lot of newer CCW folks who got LCPs (and similar) are going to buy these new 9mm pistols thinking they are going to pocket carry them...only to end up going back to the .380 after a while, unless they move to a IWB setup.

    So...who's brave enough to carry a cocked-and-locked single action pistol with ambidextrous safeties that stick out that far in their pocket?

    No it isn't. The video I saw only showed the Solo for the entire video. No other gun was ever displayed. No new Kahr model was ever mentioned, much less talked about or shown.

    They must have changed the video at your link. Just go take a look.

    They must have changed it back because I saw a bunch of guns referenced, not just the kimber.

    they show a photo still of the cm9, not a motion picture of it.


    i believe the kimber solo's safety isnt that wide. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...2.102653905515

    Not in the video that I saw at the link. In fact, the video does not even mention the CM9 at all whatsoever.

    Have you guys actually gone back to check the video again? Make sure that you also refresh the web page using your web browser, and don't let your browser reload the page from cache.

    thats pretty much the same still that is shown in the video, nothing exciting, only proves it exist. the video doesnt talk about much, just saying that thers alot of slim 9s out there because it was gaining popularity from 380s and now we the consumers want a more powerful pocket gun, and the guy was saying that these guns aren't true pocket pistols.

    i'd still buy one of these slim 9s...and stick in iwb, cuz i think i'd be more comfy than my g26

    Is someone on here cooking up some kind of "Pocket 9 Sticky"? I think its warranted at this point but not from someone as un-knowledgeable as myself.
