Been looking for one of these in my local gun store for quite awhile now, and today I found one...
Kahr K9. So far I have the CW9, PM40 and now the K9... I must say that outa all of um the K9 feels the best. It's a good bit heavier than the polymer offerings, but the grip on this thing feels like gold in my hand. I don't think I've been so excited to get to the range in a long time.. It was on my list along with a few others for a long time, but today I guess I can scratch it off and start on the next one.. I was eyeballing another Kimber to go along with my Ultra but decided on this beauty. God I love November - December. I'm calling it an early Birthday present to myself, because my wife would never buy me a firearm as a gift, so I'm gonna plead insanity and a moment of weakness when "if" asked.
One thing that's great about the purchase; all the holsters and mags and accessories I have for the other Kahrs will work perfectly with my new K9, so I saved some coin there.
Anyway, once I get it to the range and put a couple of "thousand" rounds through it I'll give a range report on it's performance... Maybe five hundred should do the trick. If it runs like my other Kahrs it will have no problems digestion the range ammo, then it's stoked with the Gold Dot for self defense. Anyway, just wanted to share my new find you folks just in case I come up missing you'll know why.. Just kidding. The wife asked for a new sofa and thing just solidified that purchase, only she'll say it can't be considered a Birthday, or Christmas gift, and I'm good with that.
Nice addition! I like Kahrs.

Congrats. You were overdue for a new one, anyway.

got to admit, I've been eyeballing the K9 Elite since I like my other Kahrs so much. Got to play with one at my local GS, and it is a beauty.....with a price tag to match, unfortunately.
I've been a good little boy all year, so maybe Santa will drop one in my stocking (those lumps of coal the past five years are getting old).
Congrats on the new Kahr, and let us know how it works out at the range.

The K9 is a fantastic shooter and somewhat hard to find. Nice pick up!

This is one reason I like being single. The only person I need to clear purchases through is ME!
It really is amazing how many birthdays I seem to have every year.
Unfortunately, the only person I have to put the brakes on an impulsive purchase is .... me! Doh!
That Kahr looks good! Enjoy it!

Sweeeeeet! Very nice! Congrats!

I'm pretty pumped about this one, still can't believe I came across it. The guy had it marked up at $750 and I got him down to $720 +tax so I feel pretty good about this one... I paid mid $800 and change for my PM40. I like it for the most part, but never warmed up to the grip on that one, now it's a safe queen.. This one though is gonna get a work-out.
Happy Birthday / Merry Christmas?!?
Nice looking pistol enjoy it before she finds out about it.

I thought you became a revolver guy?
You thinking of carrying that heavy little beastie, or is it just for fun?
Enjoy - and good luck with it!
The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all. Get a gun you will always carry, and add more capability as you grow.
Oh I'm still a revolver guy, in fact I have my 638 on my ankle as I type this now... There is no gun in my collection that will ever make me park that baby. The K9 is in my briefcase just like any of my other autos that I tote around during the week... It is just one that I have wanted for a couple of years now, but didn't want to pay the MSRP + FFL fee just to have in my collection. Anyway, I like this one way better than my PM or CW series pistols from Kahr, but IMO it's gonna be hard for any of my autos to rival the reliability of my revolvers..
Congrats. I'd like some details comparing the cw and the k models.
Does the grip feel better just because the whole thing is heavier, or is it shaped/designed differently?
I've got a Kahr 9 on my radar too. I just don't know which one, there are so many choices and to me the Kahr website is not really good at explaining some of the basic differences. I don't want a little one, I want the mid sized like the cw.
Very nice. I don't have the blackened stainless, just the regular stainless K9 with Mepro's. I'm sure you will enjoy yours as much or more than I enjoy mine.
