So a couple days after I bought my AR, I took my wife back to Cabellas. She was looking through the cases. and came upon a little Kahr 9mm. She liked it so much that she ended up buying it. To be honest, I really do like the feel of the gun. The trigger pull is WAY to long for me, though the reset point doesn't feel too bad.
She loves the fact that it's a single stack because it fits her hand better. I'm a bit leery of it because she is essentialy going down from 20 9mm that she currently carries in a purse when she goes out, to 7 rounds (well, she would've, see below. Also, she's not comfortable with one in the chamber yet). I also don't like how it breaks down - it's more like the old 1911's in that you have to remove the slide stop. Either way, at least she has (had-see below) something she's more likely to carry now on her person.
Here's a picture:
Amazing thing though. Went out to shoot it a couple days later and it decided to join all the rest of my weapons in that pond over yonder.

Nothing wrong with the CW9, my wife has one and has had no problems with it. While the trigger pull may be long, it is smooth and breaks nicely. I was impressed enough with it, that I bought the CW45 for myself.

Congrats on your wife's selection, and to you for letting HER pick out her own SD weapon.

LOL - thanks. I figured it was better to do that, then to have her keep stealing my guns!

I pointed out a couple of the downsides and she was more than okay with it, so that was that.
She does the same thing for me as well. Been a few times that she's told me not to buy something because she think I'm "settling" for it. So far, I think she's been right every time.

Congrats to your wife on her new pistol. My wife picked out her first carry gun a few weeks back. I tried to sway her towards the S&W Shield but she could operate the Ruger LC9 better.

Congratulations on the new weapon. Now do yourself a favor and visit KahrTalk Home. Go to the forum section and select Kahr tech. In that section you will find a "sticky" at the top of the page that is titled "proper prep of a Kahr." It is very informative and will help keep your Kahr trouble free.
Another good post.....3rd post down in the thread.

I had her gun's big brother (CW45) and little brother (CM9) before I lost them both while looking for your AR in the pond.
GREAT choice for a CCW! Congrats!

I assume it's a REAL DEEP pond.
