    I've owned both, got rid of the G27. The CW45 is my EDC in warm weather, and I'm looking to get a PM9 for pocket carry for those days when I only feel like wearing a T-shirt and shorts.

    I enjoy shooting my CW45, I guess I'm not very recoil sensitive. The checkering is a bit sharp, but a Hogue slip-on grip fixed that. I've also had a CW9, and it was fun to shoot as well. Good pistols, whichever way you go.

    As alot of you know, I can't help but bragg on my kahr TP45....
    It shoots great. It doesn't have much recoil.

    The Kahr has a long trigger with no short reset. I have a cw-9 and it is my carry weapon for very hot weather as it so easy to conceal. I'm not much of a .45 guy can't help you there. Take a look at the M&P .357sig compact much higher velocity and muzzle energy than a 45. The cost of the .357sig round matches it's velocity very HIGH...

    I thought the price was a bit high too, but I don't have to pay for next day shipping, and I'd have to pay for an FFL transfer if I bought online. I think I'll go in Monday and offer $420 for the CW9, which means with tax I'd be right at $450.

    Love my Kahr CW 45

    I've put 500 rounds through it so far and I love it. Don't worry about recoil. The kick is a bit more than my Beretta 84, but nowhere near strong enough to concern me. I'm a big man (6'0, 245) and I can slip it into my waistband and it disappears. It conceals better than my Beretta because it's flatter.

    My EDC is the CW9. I am big Glock fan (also have a G19) but was never a big fan of the G26. My CW9 has been flawless with over 600 rounds of various ammo and is much easier to conceal than the Glock.

    The CW9 is a good choice

    I have put about 1000 rounds thru my CW9. No problems. It shoots to the point of aim and slips in my front pocket without printing.

    Do yourself a favor and spend the extra dough on either a PM9 or a PM45. They can both be had on Gunbroker for about $100 more than what you have been quoted on the cw9, and cw45.

    Do yourself a favor and shop a little and you will find a new Glock for about 50-75 more than the used one. and be much happier with parts availability, holsters, etc.
