CW40 not to my liking any suggestions on what to replace it with?

This is a discussion on CW40 not to my liking any suggestions on what to replace it with? within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; another vote for the Sig P239 in 40 cal. Comfortable to carry, good weight to power ratio, excellent quality and just downright good shooters....

    Try some different options (rent, borrow, etc) to avoid another purchase you aren't too happy with. For a double stack 40, I ended up with a Glock 23 and have no complaints. Of course, that doesn't mean you'd be happy with it...
    Chose a weapon that goes bang EVERY time!

    XD 40 SC
    Glock 27
    M&P 40C

    ....or you could step down in caliber to the CW9. Same gun that is totally controllable and a pure pleasure to shoot. Shot mine Thursday night at the range. Its a keeper.
    Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.

    Sorry to hear your not happy with the Kahr, my CW 40 which I have owned for 4 years has been flawless from day one, as has my PM9. Everybody's threshold for recoil is different and I am use to shooting large caliber handguns that start with "4", so its very manageable for me in this platform. If I were you I would step down to a 9mm or get a 40 with a larger and heavier frame to tame the recoil for you.
    When I leave the home port:
    S&W 642 Airweight, Ruger SP 101, Colt Detective Spec., CZ RAMI, Kahr PM9, Kahr CW40, S&W Model 10-7, Glock 30, 19, and 26, Browning Hi Power, CZ82, Colt Commander, Dan Wesson PM7, Ruger LCP

    Bought a SiG p239 in 40 and ordered a Mitch Rosen Holster (express model so I don't have to wait 3 months) so thanks for the input.

    Although I am a Kahr fan, of sorts, and do carry a CW9 quite a bit, I was not real enthused with (a friend's) the CW40 that originally got me interested in the Kahr line. I already had the Sig P239 in 40 and felt like I had the compact 40 covered. Still feel that way, and I'll bet you will too

    Congrats on your new pistol. Pics? Did you get a SAS in DAK?..or what? I wanted one for the longest time in 357 Sig, but ultimately decided on the Kahr K40...mostly because it was much thinner and could carry it IWB - something I could not pull off with the P239. BTW, you could have got a UBG holster in about three weeks or so.

    I replaced my CW9 with a M&P 9c. I wanted to love my CW9, and I did in the begining but long range sessions were uncomfortable and rubbed my thumg knuckle raw a few times. Oddly enough I find the thicker grip of my M&P and FNP much more comfortable to shoot. So I went ith the M&P compact for a CCW replacement, plus the added rounds (5 extra) to be a bonus.

    I carry a .357mag because no one bickers about the .357mag being "enough".

    Head over to SIG and shoot their stuff to see what you like.

    I got the DA/SA with night sights. I have a couple of other Sigs and felt it was best to keep with a familiar trigger configuration. I wish I would have known about UBG hosters . I checked out there website and they have nice product and I would have liked to help out a fellow "Jarhead".
