Are Kahrs the thinnest .40's?
Walther will be coming out with a .40 cal PPS sometime in the future. They are pretty thin: http://www.smith-wesson.com/webapp/w...04&isFirearm=Y
Might want to wait a little while though...
There is also the LS40! Many people have never heard of STI, but they are a great company that specialize in high-quality 1911 style pistols. Ask any USPSA/IPSC shooter and they'll tell you: STI International - LS9, LS40
Gun control is hitting what you aim at...
+1 on what glock said. You don't want to be the research and development person for a gun company that just brought out a new gun and has yet to work out all of the bugs. Wait 6 months or longer if you are wanting the new PPS .40 caliber. Kahrs are indeed the thinnest especially in the P series and have been around long enough to work out any problems they may have had in the beginning.
That STI looks nice, I will have to look around and see if anyone carries that here in Vegas. Anyone know what the the MK40 is at its thickest point?
+1 on the STI; STI absolutely rules the competition circles in handgunning with their high-capacity modular frames, and they have in the past few years begun to move into the law enforcement and concealed carry markets as well. they have a unique perspective on things because the guys that run STI are all competitive shooters themselves, so they figure out what works and what doesn't very quickly due to the fact that they "battle test" the guns in competitive environments prior to releasing them to market.

Well so far the options I am considering are a Kahr in .40 and the STI LS40, anyone have any other suggestions or pros and cons for one vs the other?

Davidson's has them listed as "allocated" which normally means they have some but only for their best volume dealers. If they weren't in stock, they just wouldn't be listed or number would read 0. There may be some out there in the hills, I just don't know where.

I avoid the poly-framed Kahr models, especially in .40 S&W and larger calibers. You seldom hear any issues with the "K" or "T" (metal framed) series. Yes, they are slightly wider (and considerably heavier) but, IMHO, a better bet.
