    Proud Papa

    We are welcoming two new babies into our home. A Kahr CM9 and a Ruger LCP.

    Just got a year-end bonus at work. I told my wife I'd like to use part of it to buy a new gun. Her response: "Only if I can get one too!" I wanted a slim 9mm to carry, and my wife wanted a smaller .380 for when she goes running.

    Now if I can brag a little on the prices. The Kahr was $399 and the LCP was $280 (plus tax of course). I felt like I got a pretty decent deal on both after a little local price shopping.

    I don't know anthing about the kahr - never owned one. The LCP however you got for respectable price and is a darn good little pistol. I am in to 3 years now with one and it has been 100%. And it was one of the earlier models which I paid far more for. At the time the going rate was in the $325.00 range. I still consider it a darn good choice regardless.

    Congrats!

    Anytime a new baby comes into a home, there is a chance the other babies may be jealous. I recommend taking all of those little ones out and playing with them as often as possible. Just remember to clean up all of their brass droppings.

    Congrats.

    Must be related to the PM9 that's sitting in my right pocket, and the LCP that's in the left one...

    Ask and you shall receive. I actually don't pick up the CM9 until tomorrow, but here's the LCP fresh out of the box. Isn't she cute?
