Kahr PM9 or Ruger SR9C?
I have both the Kahr PM9 and the Ruger SR9C, both have been flawless, accurate, and as good as I could have expected.
I carry the S&W 642 revolver most of the time AIWB with a "Clip Draw" this is a very comfortable everyday carry when I do not need to tuck my shirt in.
The reason I don't carry the PM9 much is that when in a holster AWIB it is not as comfortable as the 642, hard to believe because dimension wise it is smaller, I shoot ok with both at self-defense ranges. The difference between the Ruger and the Kahr are not that much difference in size and the SR9C has 4 more rounds in almost the same size, the only difference is a little in width and an inch in length.
If I am going to carry a 9mm IWB or AIWB I would go for the more rounds, I have not been successful with pocket carry with the PM9 either unless I am wearing cargo shorts.
Conclusion the PM9 has become a safe queen, the SR9C will be my 9mm IWB, and the 642 my AIWB. I am going to sell the Kahr PM9 and use the money for another gun purchase in 45ACP.

I will be honest with you, I have yet to hold a Kahr PM9. However, I have had a Ruger SR9c for 18 months, and have had the same experience as yourself.

Good luck with your next purchase!

What's been the issue with pocket carry of the PM9? If you need some more depth to your pocket, a tailor should be able to do that fairly easily.
In any case, if it has been reliable I would not sell it. It is smaller than either of your other options, and you may yet find a need for it. Would make a good secondary as well.
The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

If you had the same holster for the cm9 why would it then not be as good or better than a pistol that is heavier and bigger. Sounds like a holster issue not pistol issue. If you had a comp-tac holster ,or atleast the ones with a leather backing you can change just the kydex and use the same leather backer on all three of your pistols.
