I am pretty sure I am wanting a Kahr, but I have been going back and forth wither not to get the heavier MK9 or just go with the PM9. I have not seen an MK9 in any gun store I have been in, but they usually have a couple PM9s. I just wonder if recoil warrants getting a little more weight or if the lighter gun is controllable enough. I haven't shot one but I am fairly certain I can handle recoil of a 9mm even in a small gun. I plan on carrying mostly in a holster outside the pant but maybe sometimes pocket carry. Any info from someone who has shot them both would be helpful.
