    A .380 in your pocket is better than a .45 at home.

    I tried 2 Kahrs and both broke triggers before 100 rounds. Too bad because I liked them before they broke.
    Whats worse is Magguts. I tried those in three different guns and I would rather carry just a knife than ruin my guns reliability with messing with that junk. It changes your top round pressure and will make your slide harder to rack and work your recoil spring harder as well. DO NOT TRUST those in a carry gun unless you love to practice FTE's.
    I know just like Kahr you can find die hard fans but, do not mess with the most critical component of a semi auto gun....the magazine. The extra round is not worth it believe me and save your money.

    Are all Kahr's as hard to rack as the P380?

    I own both the K9 and MK9 as well as their 40SW brothers and a bunch of their polymer models. Not gonna apologize to anyone for enjoying the crap out of mine. You don't like them, go buy a Ruger.

    No, my CW9, CW45, and PM9 are normal rackers. My CT380 is a bear to pump that slide.

    Miss my CW9. Was going to replace it with another, but now looking at the 365 instead. Never had an issue with my CM9 or CW9 so not sure why I sold them.

    You could call me a "Kahr Fan", although like a lot of other good guns, newer designs have upstaged many of their models.

    When the PM9 first came out, it offered a pretty outstanding set of specs wrt size, weight, capacity, etc. in a service caliber. It also came with a hefty price tag that kept me from ever buying one. The CM9, though, was a game-changer, offering a functionally identical pistol (except for the rifling) several hundred bucks cheaper. I snatched one up pretty quickly after I first saw one. I still have it, and consider it a fine pistol. The Shield 9, although a tad bigger, edged the CM9 out of "first place" for an EDC, except for circumstances where maximum concealment is concerned. The Shield just fits me a lot better, and the longer sight radius & larger capacity are plusses. Most recently, though, the P365 has upstaged both the Kahr and the Shield!

    I also got a CW45 some years ago. I love .45 ACP and felt like the CW45 was a very good choice for a .45 CCW. Since then, though, the Shield 45 and the XDs have both hit the market, and again, I'd be inclined to pick the Shield over the Kahr. I've also gotten back "into" 1911's in recent years, and at this point would pack a Lightweight Commander or my ECO in preference to the CW45.

    My most recent Kahr is the CW380, and I believe it is in a class of its own so far as micro-380's go. Nothing I've seen comes close, in terms of shootability, reliability, accuracy, etc. It's my go-to pistol of choice for maximum concealment.

    So, yes, a "Kahr Fan" - but I now have better choices than my Kahrs, except for the CW380!

    JMHO - YMMV

    I own Kahrs (CM9 and P380) and have carried both. They are utilitarian tools. I have the P380 in my right front pocket as I type this. Both guns have been 100% reliable from the very first magazines.

    What I am a fan of is classic Colt snake guns and pretty much any 1911. But what I carry is what works best for me, not necessarily what I have a passion for.
