    I carry both, one as a primary, one as a back up.

    For me the answer is BOTH! In the summer I carry the Glock 26 IWB in a holster of my own making which easily conceals under a t-shirt. If I can wear a cover garment I can carry a G19. I then carry a Kahr PM9 in my pocket as a bug. If I need ultimate concealability I go with the PM9 in one of my IWB rigs. I can put the gun on and tuck my shirt in and even if you are looking for it you can't tell it is there. I use a j-hook that engages on the bottom edge of the belt. I am thinking about using velcro to attach the the holster to my belt.

    I've gone back and forth on the Glock vs Kahr thing for a long time. I've decided that 9mm is the caliber for me. I shoot it well and like the additional capacity and manageable recoil. I had a Gen 3 G26 and G17 and I sold them a couple of years ago. When the Gen 4 Glocks came out I checked them out and bought a G26 and a G19. With Blue Label program that Glock provides I picked these up for $441 each. I then attended the Glock Armorers Course and that adds another plus to the Glock. If I am dressed casually I can carry the Glock all day long with no problems. If I have to dress up a little the Kahr is the way to go!

    I cleaned up the action on my G26 a little and added a - connector and it is definitely nicer than the stock 19. So far it has been 100% reliable which is the only non negotiable factor that I require from a gun.

    My Kahr 9mm has been 100% as well. The only problems that I've had with a Kahr were in .45. I had some slide locking to the rear in the middle of a magazine with a Kahr PM45. I shelved that gun after that happened. When time is available I will go back and trouble shoot that pistol but I'm not sure I will ever carry it. My Kahr 9 is a trusted carry gun. It has taken the place of all my smaller guns. I've found that if I can carry a .380 I can carry the PM9.

    I've got a P45 as well that I absolutely love! It is the most accurate and "shootable" plastic gun I own. Recoil is a bit extreme but I don't think that would be an issue.

    Bottom line is I can ALWAYS carry the Kahr PM9 (and do!) either in my pocket or IWB. If I am able I augment that with a Glock 9mm, either the 26 or the 19.
    Hooah! It's an Army thing!

    I have had both. I liked both. I sold my G27 because I never carried it. If I'm going to carry a wide body gun I take my G19. If it's summer or I'm worried about printing I carry my CW9. Kahr makes a nice product.

    I changed holsters for the XD, and it solved any issues I had .... it's a piece of cake now.

    But .... to your question ..... absolutely a KAHR over any Glock.

    And to me, the two most important criteria for concealed carry are reliability and accuracy. The Kahr is .90 inches thick; the G26 is a whopping 1.18" . I carry my G26 in a UBG Canute, it tucks in very well; that lil bit if extra thickness is nuthin' compared to the number of times I've had rounds nosedive in a Kahr. Kahr mags suck, IMO.

    I have a Glock 26 and a Kahr cm9 so fairly similar to what you are considering. I only carry the Kahr if I need to pocket carry. If I can hip carry, it is the Glock all the way. The 26 disappears IWB in a CBST or a VMII. I prefer the Glock as it is more reliable and a better shooter for me, YMMV.

    I hesitate to even post in this thread as I see it is over 2 years old but anyway, here's my 2 cents. My experience with Kahr pistols is very limited and only deals with a friends PM40. This particular pistol was accurate, had a smooth trigger, and handled the 40 S&W quite well for such a small pistol. However, it was not reliable at all with several different experienced shooters and had to be sent back to Kahr 3 times. My friend did not even shoot it after he got it back the third time. He just sent it down the road. I understand this is as small a sample size as you can get but it was enough for me to question the reliability of this particular Kahr model.

    So my choice would be a Glock without hesitation, even though I know the Kahr would be a little easier to conceal and carry.

    Having said all that, for the price they can be had for, I may eventually pick up a Kahr CM9 in the future. If it functions well and is accurate it would surely have a place in my carry rotation.

    Another person that has both here, and would have no qualms carrying either. Kahr carries much more comfortably, but the Glock is a combat pistol. Glock 26 with 10+1 versus the Kahr with 6+1, really just depends on your needs.
