When I bought my first pistol years ago, it was a DAO Kel-Tec P-11. Since then I have progressed through striker fired to lately, single action. But I've been hating carrying around a big 1911 with it being so hot this summer. So I found me a Smith & Lesson M&P9c. But I just want very good with it. Then I got me a Kahr CW9 DAO. I'm hitting exactly where I want to. And rather fast too. Is my trigger finger being sentimental or what? DAO and single action are so far apart I would think it would throw me off, but its the total opposite. Who knew? So I say try everything if you're looking for a compliment it your usual full size carry gun. You never know.
