So... like many of us, I'm on the search for the perfect daily carry pistol.
I'm trying to decide between the CW9 (or maybe even the K9) and the TP9.
I have my dad's CW9 on loan to me right now to carry for a while to see how I like it. So far I love it. I feel like it's oh-so-close to being the absolute perfect size for me.
I know this is a completely unfair comparison, but I went to the range yesterday and for fun, I was shooting the CW9 8 rounds, then the Glock 19 8 rounds. Each at 7rds, at about 1 round per second.
The groups on the Kahr rounds were much bigger than the Glock rounds.
Like I said... it's a totally unfair comparison. The glock has a longer line of site, it weighs more, and has a shorter trigger. I think some would say, "Then just get the glock". But all the double stacks are too wide for me. The Kahrs just disappear inside the waist band I love it.
So I got to thinking... what about the TP9. It's a 1/2 in longer in the grip, a little longer barrel and line of sight, and about 2.5 more ounces. Plus it carries an extra round.
I'm wondering if all those differences will improve my targeting. Or is it just that I need to get some more time behind the kahr (long) trigger?
I guess I'm really hoping for Kahr owners that have both the CW9 and the TP9 would chime in and tell me what you think of the two. I know they are small differences, but hey... Michael Phelps won his 7th gold metal by 0.01 seconds... so small differences can make a big difference when it matters, am I right?
Right now the CW9 is so comfortable to carry I almost feel like I'm cheating. Is the TP9 just as easy?
