    nice gun.
    You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
    You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
    However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
    1) Call someone with a gun.
    2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man

    Before taking your Kahr to the range, make sure to clean and lube it very well. Then rack and release the slide a few dozen times in order to speed up the break in practice. I did this for my MK9, PM9 and P380 and all ran flawlessly during FMJ break in.

    Very interesting - I'm looking forward to hearing your range reports. I own a M&P 9FS and tried the PM-9 but couldn't hit the broad side of a barn while I'm very good with the M&P.

    I'm thinking of going with the 9c for EDC in spite of it's thickness. Honestly speaking, is the PM9 a totally different world in CC than the 9c or is it nice but not essential?

    I put a rubber grip sleeve on my PM9 straight away.

    It's a totally different world. But with that said, using it IWB there isn't that much of a difference. I carried for a year with the M&P and was just fine. Sometimes t-shirts would catch and hang up, or have a slight bulge. Dressing up was hard, and the J frame would go. The thickness isn't as big a deal as having a holster I can adjust the ride height and cant on. The biggest difference for me is the height of the gun. Either the top of the slide or the bottom of the grip would print with a slightly tighter t-shirt. Not any more with the PM9 with the flush mag. The extended was about the same as the M&P. It won't take over full time duty, but is a nice option to the stable.

    So today a buddy and I took out our 2 M&P's and my new PM9 to break it in. Let me just say that I'm not a crack shot by any means, but there is no noticeable difference in accuracy at 7-10yds.

    We shot 80 FMJ rounds through with a single problem. I did add some more lube at the 50 round mark. Then we shot 24 rounds of Federal Hydra Shock 147gr. I had no issues whatsoever, my friend had one FTF. He didn't use the slide release but slingshot it, and I'm quite sure e wasn't forceful enough with it. I'd been watching him before about it. One quick tap to the bottom of the mag and it loaded on its own!

    Overall I'm extremely please with this gun! Couldn't ask for anything else.

    We did a drill with a rope and milk jug. Shooter stand and friend stands behind and pull jug at you. It was always the same distance away and in 30' I got 6 or 7 rounds off, and wasn't any more accurate or any faster with either gun. (The Kahr or the Smith)

    This gun really smooths out after a few rounds. It was quite gritty to rack the slide even after oiling. Now, it's a lot better, still not butter but getting there.

    The empty casings were getting thrown anywhere from 1o'clock and 6o'clock in the beginning, but settled down into a nice 4-5o'clock pattern.

    Once when inserting the 7rd backup magazine, I slammed her home and the slide dropped on it's own, which hey, works for me!

    One last thing, some people complain about the top round of the magazine nosediving and not feeding. Let me just say that I purposely tried to make this happen, and the force of inserting the magazine must make it pop back up, as I could not get it to cause a malfunction.

    After a long search, experimentation and a lot of money down the drain, I've settled in on Kahr as the go-to carry option. PM9 & P380.

    On paper and in handling - a few ounces of weight and a few eigths of an inch seems insignificant. But when you haul one around all day in/on a pair of shorts on a 110 heat index day, they become huge issues.

    Kel-Tecs are as thin, and a little lighter, but the Kahrs come out on top in almost every category but cost. I think the Kel-Tec forum is great and factory customer service is far superior to any other manufacturer. Ask for a part, and it's in your the mailbox in less than a week. No charge.

    But if I was forced to keep only one gun for range, home and carry - it would be a PM9...
