    Did you mean Kahr P45?

    You compared the Kahr P9, a 9mm, with the Glock 36, a .45 caliber. I am surprised that you didn't compare the Kahr P45 instead, which is a .45 like the Glock. I would consider these two to be more directly competitive.

    I think the closest thing to the Kahr P9 is the new Walther PPS - both are single stack polymer 9mm guns and are quite thin.

    Leaving caliber out of the discussion, I think the Kahr is a better pistol. I have owned a Glock 36 in the past, and I own a Kahr MK9 now. The Kahr is much thinner, and I prefer a thinner pistol. Also, I think the Kahr trigger is much smoother.

    I certainly do like Glocks, I still own a 26, but I like my Kahr much more.

    In the end though, the Khar about $200 more, so it depends on where your priorities are.

    Kel-tec also makes a P-11 which is a very compact 9mm that holds 12 rounds. Carry mine in front pocket or on my left side as a back-up.

    Both are thin...
    My Glock-36 is very easy to conceal...but comparing 9mm with the G-36 (.45)?

    I'll keep the G-36!

    I guess what I was trying to get at is it better to carry a tiny gun with less power or a larger gun with more power...

    Well, can you fit a larger gun w/more power? Or are your going to print with somethign larger

    A smaller gun in your hand, is much better than a larger gun,...at home.

    I did not answer the poll because frankly it is far to simplistic . Issues such as build , normal clothing , carry mode affect the choice , as does single vs double stack ( how many times do you plan on missing lol ) . The triggers of the guns are vastly different as are the grip angles some will shoot one or the other better .
    Carry what you have confidence in . For me its Kahr because it fits MY needs the best . I have owned a few glocks that i got in trade , never kept one any longer than it took to make a buck on it . Glock is not for me .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
