    Hello from the Keystone state

    Hey everyone. I've had a permit to carry since '95, but haven't really carried much in the past few years. Just starting to again, and recently purchased a Ruger LCP which I am very happy with as a little pocket gun. I am currently in the market for something a little bigger and am heavily considering a Kahr MK9. For one thing.. the ammo is a hell of a lot cheaper to target shoot, and I want something with a bit better site picture. Lastly, I am also looking for a simple Ruger MK III just for target shooting/plinking/ and practicing good form at a cheap price.

    Anyway.. Does anyone have a suggestion other than the MK9 as another small carry 9mm? I have also considered the PM9, and Rohrbaugh.. but have mostly ruled them out. I am still a little skittish about the PM9 and reliability, and the Rohrbaugh wouldn't be a pistol I would practice with enough to be comfortable. Also, they seem higher maintenance with the recoil spring replacement. They are nice pistols, but I also can not afford the price tag. Thought about a glock also, but would like something single stack to keep it slim. I am of average build... 5' 9" and about 160lbs..

    I currently have the following pistols, though don't carry the USP, Para, and Colt Mustang:

    H&K USP Full Frame .40
    Sig P239 .40
    ParaOrdnance P12-45
    Walther PPK .380
    S&W 640 .38/.357
    Colt Mustang .380
    Ruger LCP .380

    Thanks in advance,
    Rock

    The MK9 is a decent gun, I had one, but be forewarned that it's a very heavy little gun for a 6+1 ammo capacity. If that doesn't bother you, then go for it, otherwise I'd check out the PM9, Glock 26, or XD9 Subcompact.

    Welcome from California! I would also recommend the Springfield XD9sc, but it is not single stack.
