    accurate gun, that carries well?? I have a CW40 not crazy about it.

    I am sure this most be one of the most tiring questions.
    I carry a Kahr CW40, in a Yaqui paddle holster. I love the way it carries, itís super light, and comfortable.
    The problem is that I am not a great shot with the CW40.
    I need to know for myself that if I draw it I can absolutely hit what I am aiming at.
    I have a XD 40, I shoot better but if Iím looking for a new gun would like to find the golden fleece, an accurate gun that can easily carry.
    I have a super-38 1911 that I shoot the lights out but too heavy to carry day in and day out.
    I want to stay between 9MM and 45.
    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Have you looked into Walther PPS 9-mm???? Hard to find, but they look like they might be a good choice.

    I'm sure many of the members here will chime in and give sound advise.

    For me, I find that my Sig P239 40S&W is incredibly accurate and easy to carry. Yes it is on the heavy side, but my Beltman belt and Minotaur MTAC holster do their respective jobs & make for all day carry comfort.

    It is hard to beat a Glock 19 as a daily carry pistol

    Maybe I will take a look at that, one of the great things about these post are that people have suggestions that never came to mind. Thanks
    One of the guns on my mental short list is the old HK P7, but I know that being down south that works out to a lot of sweat on steel...

    Is the gun inaccurate, or are you inaccurate with that gun?

    In .40, that's an awfully snappy little gun. You might consider going to a 9mm in the same gun since you like the way it carries, or to a little heavier gun if you have to have a .40.....or you could do both.....the K9 is an all steel 9mm that carries easily and shoots like a dream.

    I do notice that I have a little tendency to flinch just a little with the CW40. I also think that the DA long pull also helps me pull shots. When I shoot say a Kimber 45 (I know they are built to be accurate) or my super 38 1911 with the single action trigger I shoot better.

    Glock 19 or its little brother, the 26.

    I have to agree with the Glock 19 or 26. I personally like the .40 and mostly carry the Glock 27. Sometimes, if I get the notion, I will carry my Glock 30 .45

    The M&P Compact 9 is about perfect for me... The short grip really helps in concealment. It's a very soft shooting 9mm and compact. It's going to be thicker than the Kahr, but more firepower and shorter grip. As Mike said, hard to go wrong with a G19 too.

    How about a smaller 1911, say in 9mm? An EMP or even a para LDA?

    CZ 75 compact is a great shooting gun. I have one 9 mm in satin nickel. Also check out the CZ PCR and P-01, both are 9mm. If you want to stay with 40 cal look at the CZ P-06, I use it as my EDC.
