    Sear Failure and Pocket Carry

    Hello All,

    I own a Kahr PM9, and recently obtained my CCW. I am also new to the firearm scene, and have limited experience as it relates to some firearm terminology, and specific functions of internal firearm components. With that being said, can any of you please tell me what would prevent a Kahr PM9 being carried with a round chambered from spontaneously firing if the sear failed? I want to carry round chambered, but if the aforementioned sear failure is a possibility I may need to reconsider. Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

    Because the gun isn't cocked until you pull the trigger. While some handguns are different, the PM-9 is a trigger-cocking DAO.

    Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your ccw!

    If memory serves me, Kahrs have an internal striker block that cams out of the way when the trigger is pulled. No trigger pull.....no bang, no matter where you carry it. Great choice in a concealed carry handgun, IMHO!
