Hey everyone, my first post here. Found it on a Google search trying to compare the Taurus 740 and the Kahr CW40.
I currently have a USP-C .40 v1 which I absolutely love! But for summer time concealed carry its rather bulky. I had originally started to look into a weapon chambered in .380 but I also recently started reloading. As many of you are aware, getting the right equipment to convert your press can be rather costly.
I am looking for a single stack .40 S&W pistol thats lefty friendly-ish. As long as I can get to the safety easily it shouldn't be an issue since if I can't hit what I'm aiming at with 6-7 rounds, I should not be carrying.
I have started looking at guns like Kahr CW40, Taurus 740, and used (since its not made anymore AFAIK) Sig P239 .40. Am I forgetting anything? I don't have a problem hitting all the gun shows and trying to buy used if its a good weapon and not made anymore.
The last criteria is price. I know there are lots of good carry-size 1911s out there, but when you start getting into the $1000 range, I can easily buy a .380 or even a 9mm with a bunch of ammo and all the reloading equipment required. So I'm really trying to stick around the price point of the Kahr. My only complaint with the CW40 is the long trigger pull and absence of external safety.
