I love my M&P, but its slightly chunky for carrying concealed, although I've tried it a few times. I'd heard great things about the Kahr PM9 and have been wanting to try firing one. There are a few dealers in Ohio that have them for rental as well as purchase, so I went out to one today. One of them had one for rental as well as 2 for purchase, one with the night sights and the black slide, the one I wanted. So I went up there and tried it and then one followed me home. I'd heard that since it was a small gun that the recoil was horrible, but it wasn't bad at all. I got some gun belts too. I thought I had some sturdy belts, but little did I know how flimsy they were until I put a holster on one.
For those that have the black PM9, does the black finish wear off at all with time? I guess they just take the silver one and dip it?
Here is my M&P9c and PM9 in comparison as well as with holsters.
