    New favorite CCW

    About a month or so ago, I bought a new Kahr CW9. test drive at the range was impressive to say the least. Recoil was impressively very light and accuracy was outstanding for a small pistol. Capacity is good at 7 +1 and the overall quality is superb. After a month + of carrying it, its definitely become my #1 CCW. I feel better about carrying the 9mm over the smaller calibers, it's not a mouse pistol and not a fullsize, but perfectly in the middle and very easily concealed under a t-shirt. Here's a pic of my new favorite neatly tucked as it typically is every day..........

    So how do we know if there really is a pistol under that T-shirt?


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    I think this is going to be my first CW. Going to stop by the local shop, im pretty sure he carries Kahr. If not, Oregon's biggest gunshow this weekend should have a few. :)

    Terry...?...

    Doesn't that gun get uncomfortable against your skin?

    I always wear a T-shirt and...I order my IWB's with a 'body protector' which is a little more leather added to keep the gun away from the skin...works well for me!

    Photoshop which pic?? DIdn't photoshop any pic on here......besides, pistols are supposed to be concealed unless you live in one of these free states, in which case, I'd still go concealed.


    I've got the Kahr at my 2:30. It's not uncomfy against my skin. Especially in the Milt Sparks VMII. I hardly know it's there. The Milt Sparks has the shirt guard. I also wear my PX4 the same way. Here's a comparison pic:

    First the Kahr:
