The ugly for me was the difficulty I had in take-down and assembly: don't want to waste my time TRYING to get these two exercises to be simple and easy. So I sold it and got a Shield: Glock easy to do . Very happy with the S&W!

I carried one for a good while as it was my first true ccw gun.
Good: accurate, easily concealed, visible sights, compact, lightweight, good feel, smooth trigger,
Bad: mags are terrible construction in general, recoil is very stout, loud is an understatement , the slide requires Popeyes strength to rack for us mere mortals, the trigger is very long, the sights are cheap plastic,
Some people are like slinkies.... There not really good for much, but you can't help but smile when you push them down the stairs

I prefer Kahrs with full metal frames, myself. I use a K9.
I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.
Educate YOURSELF. Go to KahrTalk Home. Read the stickys on the sub forums "PM's & CM's and the "kahr tech." You will learn how to properly prep your Kahr before shooting it. There is a wealth of information there. Most people that have problems with them are used to firing larger weapons. These are small weapons with very tight tolerances. They can be finicky if you don't know what you are doing. A lot of experienced shooter like to think they know it all and won't seek to learn declare the weapon junk and go back to shooting their cannons. Learn about them and you will not have issues. My PM9 still puts a smile on my face when I shoot it.
I read "Done with Kahr" first ... I couldn't find any stickies. [But I'm one who says that I will never own a Kahr, so don't put too much meaning into what I say.]
