    Made in USA so they employ Usa workers. But so does Kahr. But some don't want to spend there $$ for the Monnies

    This is true.

    I compared it side by side with my Glock 26 at the gun store just an hour ago, and they were close, so close I decided against buying it. I decided if I ever go lower than my G26 (and bigger than my lcp) it'll be a J frame or similar size revolver that can handle .357 mag.

    That crap is getting about as old as the "Plastic gun" crap that Glock had to trudge through years ago... Regardless of any of the owners religious affiliations they still employ American workers, so by buying their offerings us Kahr owners are supporting America by buying American. Oh' and the Kahr lineup is leaps and bounds above most other single stack 9 mm pistols out there. I always agreed that the Kahr is the single stack pistol that Glock should've made, but since the best they have mustered so far is the G36, which I have one of BTW, the Kahr is a good choice for a small, reliable and effective defensive carry gun. If I find hidden stamp markings somewhere on any of the Kahrs that I presently own touting some offensive belief, or see any on any future ones, I'll pass um up at the gun counter, but until then, I'm gonna take advantage of the awesome design and convenience of these little pistols. As always, JMO, YMMV.

    I handled a Nano today and it is chunkier than an LC9 or PF9. But the Sign 290 is by far the fattest of the subcompact 9s.

    The trigger felt pretty good, way better than my LC9's trigger.

    Try not to give Kahr/moonies any money. A cult will never get dime one from me.

    After reliability, I want a nice trigger, and Kahr has both IMO. Kahr has come out with the CM40, finally, and if its trigger is as good as the one on my PM40, it will be a good deal. The only 9mm DAO trigger that beats Kahr is on my Rohrbaugh R9.

    Very well said. I completely agree with you. My Kahr's have run great since their break in period. I'm considering yet another single stack 9mm or .45acp and I doubt I will choose a Nano over a Kahr.

    There is a lot to legitimately criticize Kahr for.

    Their magazine, in particular, which allows the top round to move around, resulting in a variable feed angle and the dreaded "nose down jam" is certainly one.

    The fact that you have to use the slide stop lever to load the first round reliably is another (yes, I know that some individual examples can apparently be slingshotted).

    The fact that their solution to PM9s not feeding from the 7-round mag...is to exchange it for a 6-round mag (instead of fixing the underlying problem).

    Those are all real, documented issues with the design and service.

    As far as the Moonie thing goes..."The sins of the father shall not pass down to the son."

    Do we not buy Glocks because Hitler was from Austria? How about Beretta - Italy used to be fascist too, you recall. Do we hate on S&W and Ruger for some of the deals they made with the government in the past (the "Hillary Hole," the low-cap mags)?

    Of course, everyone is free to spend (or not spend) their dollars as they see fit. But Kahr is a US-company, employing US workers.

    Just some ideas to consider.

    Back on topic - sure wish the Nano was a bit smaller. Ah well.

    These are life saving tools, so why should you care about the religious beliefs of the manufacturer? If it works to your satisfaction and can save your life, then carry it. I'm sure Glock, Springfield, S&W, Kimber, H&K, Ruger, etc., probably have people making their guns that have questionable beliefs too, so what?

    I held a Nano at Academy Sports and Outdoors yesterday and was impressed by the feel. I didn't get a chance to dry fire it, because they won't allow that at the store, but by the feel and look, it seems like a good gun. Kahr has been around quite awhile and has proven themselves in the single stack, thin carry gun market. Every manufacturer has issues from time to time (Glock 4th gen and Ruger LCP for example) so there is no perfect gun, regardless of what their advertising says.

    So given the choice between the 2, even if I did not own any Kahr's, I would probably choose the Kahr based on their longevity and the fact that a whole lot of people depend their life on them.
