    New CCW, pics, range review

    After a great deal of debate, I actually made a rather sudden decision in a totally different direction. I was at a gun show this weekend and picked this up:

    As always, I did a good deal of research, and found that some people had great results out of the box, and some had problems out of the box, but in almost every case, Kahr made it better. I really wanted something very light and thin and I figured for $409 brand new, it was worth a try.

    I guess I'm one of the lucky ones! I wrung it out today at the range and ended up shooting 210 rounds of mixed ammo (started out thinking I'd shoot 100 but I was having too much fun to stop!), without a single failure of any kind.
    Here's what I shot:
    50 rds. 115 Gr. FMJ WW white box
    50 rds. 115 Gr. FMJ Remington UMC
    50 rds. 115 Gr. FMJ Handloads (4.0 Red Dot)
    35 rds. 115 Gr. FMJ Federal
    25 rds. 124 Gold Dot +p (Georgia Arms)

    I did notice that there is a bit more snappiness than my 9mm Glocks, but I expected that from a 17 oz. gun All rounds were fired off hand at 11 yds. Best groups seemed to be had with my hand load and with the +p Gold Dot load, with the other ammo grouping only slightly larger.

    Here are two of the targets:

    Hand load

    Georgia Arms 124 Gr. Gold Dot +p

    At the end of the day, I entered the range with some apprehension, and I left the range with a great sense of joy! I really like this gun, and I think it's going to be a great carry!

    Too light for heavy work, too heavy for light work!

    Congrats!!! I love my CW9. I ordered 8 rd. Kahr mags from Cheaper Than Dirt, for carrying extra mags, they stick out about 3/4 inch.

    I just bought one of these last week. Have yet to get the range but I have high hopes.

    Sweet looking pistola. That's my next buy. Plus it's good to hear of people having no problems with the little Kahrs.

    Thanks for the range report. Good to see another happy Kahr owner. Had mine for some time now and luv it. One of the best 9s I've owned over the years. The +p gold dots are a little snappy, but I like the kick.

    Good choice, my CW 40 has worked out very well for me. Flawless so far through "breakin" and well beyond. The CW series Kahr's are a lot of gun for the money.
    When I leave the home port:
    S&W 642 Airweight, Ruger SP 101, Colt Detective Spec., CZ RAMI, Kahr PM9, Kahr CW40, S&W Model 10-7, Glock 30, 19, and 26, Browning Hi Power, CZ82, Colt Commander, Dan Wesson PM7, Ruger LCP
