I have three Kahrs and the CW9 is the one that I carry the most, especially in the summertime using a IWB holster made for me by "The Beltman". There have been no reliabilty problems after approx 500 rounds. It is not a pistol that I shoot a lot, at approx 15 oz. it is not a lot of fun after a few mags. I did break the corner of the polymer frame at the left rear, dug into the joint of my right thumb and I removed the "pimples" on the front of the grip. I just like the way a smooth front grip feels. I use Cor-bon 90 gr Pwr R Balls as my defensive ammo.
