    I would go with the Kahr, or a Glock 23.

    I don't find the 27 all that more concealable, and it really is like carrying a brick in my opinion. Personally I have a Glock 19, same as the 23 except it's a 9mm. I looked at the Glock 26, which is the same as the 27 except for the caliber.

    My "superconcealableultrahideypistol" is a Kahr PM9. I hope that helps. Someone posted asking about a Glock 26 or a Kahr PM9. If you want my long-winded answer check that thread out.

    Here's my longwinded reply to that question. I hope it helps.

    The PM9 sets itself apart from the Glock when carried in the pocket or on the ankle.

    I have a G19 and a Kahr PM9. I cannot see myself carrying a G26 because if I'm going to carry on the belt or IWB I find it just as easy to hide a Glock 19. I tried both guns over a period of time, and went with the Glock 19. The PM9 is carried as a BUG when I have to carry an autoloader.

    As far as the longer reset on the Kahr, not for me. I have a NY1 Trigger in my Glock 19. I try to keep all my triggers as close to the same as possible, and since I favor Revolvers it's easy to "justify" the NY1 Trigger for me.

    My Kahr, once I got past the "break in period" has been 100% reliable with what I shoot out of it. If it wasn't reliable I wouldn't own it. If a gun is unreliable I try to fix it, have it fixed, or sell it. I have about 1500 rounds through my Kahr in three years. I have only shot 100 rounds through it in the last two years.

    Kahrs, unlike Glocks, really need to be properly lubricated. There used to be a thread on this over at GlockTalk that you may want to try and find.

    For me, unless you are partial to carrying a "duty size" weapon like I am, I'd go with the Kahr PM9. Most people stop carrying after the "newness" wears off and they realize how heavy and cumbersome that gun is. The PM9 is Kahr's version of a S&W J-Frame Airweight. It's small enough to allow you to carry a gun all the time, instead of some of the time.

    I have to agree with many others that have posted on this topic.... While the Kahr may have an advantage as far as size/dimensions, the Glock is the way to go for overall reliability and capacity.

    While I do not have a G26/G27 (only a G17 and will be picking up a G19 or G23 later this week). I do have a Kahr CW9. It has given me problems out of the box and still is not 100% reliable. It still doesn't feed properly.... I think the feed ramp needs to be polished. I love it's size, heck, I even love the look... But judging by some of the other issues I've read, I just wouldn't recommend it to anyone else.

    Just my opinion. Hope it helps...

    The CW40 is easier to conceal than the 27 but I like the Glock better. Steve48
