I traded a Walther Ppks for my Kahr pm9 and one of the best. I carry daily in a front pocket holster. Also, remember to change the spring after 1000 rounds

I have a K40 that I've been carrying for over a year now. So far it's been 100% reliable and very accurate. Best of all it fits my hand like it was custom made for me.
If you don't count the nose dives when hand racking (Kahr recommends using the slide lock) then I've personally not had one issue but have seen first hand some of the junk that comes off the line and into the stores with piece of polymer hanging and unfinished... if that's me bad mouthing Kahr then so be it, maybe they need to get their act in gear. Not every Kahr problem is user induced...
I bad mouth the Vikings every year too, but I'm still a fan. :)

Love, love, love it. Disappears in a pair of shorts, and so comfortable one forgets it is there. Dead on accurate and has never failed to put one down the pipe. My 10 year old shoots it with ease too ;)
I tell all my friends about it. My step son was bragging about his XP40 he handed it to me. While I was admiring it I pulled m CW9 out and handed it over for his inspection. Let's just say he is now shopping for one for himself.

I have a PM9 and p45. Both have run with no problems. Are good little guns.

I carry it every single day. I think if I had a gun that was any bigger I would find reasons not to carry to some events, but this CM9 is the PERFECT size/shape/weight/comfort. I've put over 500 rounds through it and haven't had any malfunctions. This thing is insanely accurate out to a range beyond its intended use. I would rate this gun an above perfect 11 out of 10 stars.
The Kahr runs Federal HST 147gr and Speer Gold Dot 124 +P defense ammo / Speer Lawman and PMC Practice ammo - zero issues - 50 Federal/50 GD/400 rounds total (roughly - I only carefully counted the first 200 break-in rounds).
What impresses me about the CM9 is the trigger, it's fun to shoot, and very easy to shoot well.
But she HATES the CM9.

Just picked up a P380 this afternoon! So excited to go and shoot it! I just disassembled and cleaned it up (Hubby will be surprized, he was asleep in the chair the whole time). Hope to have as good performance as the PM9.
