I swap between my Bodyguard 380 and my LC9. The 380 lives in my pocket and the LC9 rides in a IWB and literally disappears. I had a Kahr and found the square slide uncomfortable and the gun unreliable. That is just me but the LC9 has not missed a beat no matter what ammo I feed it and is very accurate. I like the fact that it has a safety if I want it and and the long smooth trigger so I have the ability to not shoot if I think it is the right choice. A great carry gun.
