I just purchased a CW9 and I love the concealability of it. My only complaint is the trigger seems ridiculously long. Is there any way to shorten the trigger pull? I have another striker fired pistol that is an M&P and the trigger pull is not nearly as long. I am thinking maybe more practice may be the best option but it does seem unusually long.

The Kahrs have a longer trigger pull but one of the smoothest out there on DAO pistols. I originally thought the CW9 trigger was too long but I have around 800 rounds through mine and the trigger is not an issue anymore. They are defensive pistols and not match grade target pistols.
The KAHR triggers are long but no more so than a S&W wheelie and they sure are smooth. I have three , a CW9, a K9 and a K40. Found some good deals a while back. Once I had gotten through the breakin periods I found that the length of pull did not bother me at all. Admitly it take a little getting used to when I carry my 1911's out for a little range time

My Cobra Patriot .45 has quite possibly the longest and hardest trigger pulls on any of my guns. I think the triggers on my 3 Kahrs are just fine. But if you insist on smoothing it out even more, I think Cylinder and Slide do an action job on Kahrs.

Welcome to the land of absurdly smooth triggers. Practice. Practice. Practice. Before long your other weapons will feel like there's sand and grit in the trigger assembly as you pull them. This is normal.

i have a kahr cw9 and had to get used to the trigger pull since it differs from the XD's that i have. it's one of the smoothest DAO trigger pulls out there though. i'd definitely try to get used to it before you try changing it.
If you think the CW9 has a long pull, try a Sig DAK. I have both and really like them, but the DAK is a little long compared to the Kahr. Very close though...

Sig P229 .40 SAS GenII

If you think the CW9 has a long pull, try a Kel-Tec P11! The CW9 feels like a sharp knife slicing through hot butter compared to the Kel-Tec! Although I pretty well mastered the P11, it has been sold once I discovered the Kahr.
I have a PM9. It is fairly new for me and I also have some problems with the long trigger pull. For me, the problem really is not the length of pull, but more that I would like the trigger to be about .25" further forward . I plan to add a temporary shoe to the trigger to see if that helps me.
My guess is my trigger finger looses strength to make the pull as the trigger nears the breaking point.
By the way, this pistol has not hiccuped yet although I have only about 200 rouinds through it.
