    First Handgun...CC...new to guns but looking forward to a long partnership

    I have been looking into the purchase of my first firearm. I am looking at a few 9mm; the Kahr CW9 , Sig P239 (possibly in 357 sig), the CZ 2075 Rami, Ruger SR9c any thoughts or comments on these selections or a rank. I've been going between these for weeks and am looking to narrow it down. Thanks

    Are you thinking inner waist band (IWB) or outer waist band (OWB) or pocket?

    The Cw9 is very small and a great gun, but may require a little practice due to its short sight radius. The CZ RAMI is a great gun and I have been wanting one myself. My personal EDC is a Ruger SR40C, and I love it. Best bang and useability for the buck.

    I could tell you what I'd get, but that will serve you no good. As usual, get what you want. Just make sure you learn it well and shoot it.

    A lot.

    I have shot about a 100 rds through the CW9 and really liked the feel and shootability of the gun if you will. I shot the CZ 75 which made me want the rami I really like the feel of the CZ so I'm pretty torn but also do not want to break the want but i have no problem spending $500 around there

    My carry is a M&P40c. It's the same size a the 9mm version. It's also about the same size (a touch smaller) than the Ruger SR40C.
    As said, there are smaller guns but the sight radius (distance between sights) gets smaller too. This can reduce accuracy, but accuracy can be regained with practice.
    Price/quality/reliability, they are closely connected.

    yes that is very evident from reading through a bunch of different threads and forums before joining, I understand that concept and that also why I chose the guns I did I believe that the price range for quality and reliability match pretty well except for the sig which i think runs for over 600 maybe 700

    I love my P239, but everything you listed there is a good gun. Pick the one that works best for you, get good with it, and don't second guess yourself because of what others tell you.

    My wife has a CW9, very well made and accurate gun. I carry a CW45 on occasion, carried IWB. Recently I've been carrying my CZ RAMI OWB in a pancake holster, CZ are one of the better kept secrets in the gun community, and you can't go wrong with a Sig. No experience with the Ruger.
