    I've had a PM40 for about 6 years or so. I had an issue with the spring on the mag release when it was brand new, but they fixed it and returned it quickly.
    Good trigger pull. I added an A-Grip wrap because I really didn't like the plastic grip in a gun that small.
    I'd buy another Kahr anytime.

    I carry a CW-9 and gave my Dad a P380 with Crimson Trace. I like the CW-9, but am having trouble adjusting to the long trigger pull.

    I carry a pm9 shoots every time, carries just fine. It does not like steel case ammo or anything from wolf....it eats hornady, speer/blazer, PMC, federal just fine.

    I have a P9. It's very easy to IWB carry and it's still big enough to enjoy at the range. The slide is a beast to handle (I'm guessing they're all that way). An empty mag will not drop freely by pressing the mag release--I have to physically grab the mag with my off-hand to remove it. Not a big deal under normal circumstances, but would definitely make reloading slower in a self-defense situation.

    Fantastic guns, and the PM9 is unparalleled for its size/price/shootability. That little sucker runs great, I regret selling mine.

    Kahr K9 great everyday carry and small enough to hide under a t shirt or dress jacket if need be. Also very reliable and accurate. And for those that prefer more power the K9 was originally designed for +P 9mm ammo. The factory springs that come with the new models are not rated for +P ammo but Wolff extra power recoil springs can be easily found to replace the factory springs if you want to use higher velocity ammo.

    Having shot many subcompact 9mm Kahrs, my experience is their steel framed pistols are more reliable than their plastic framed pistols. YMMV.

    You are correct but I did not want to be the one that starts that usual debate. I have shot 2 polymer framed Kahr's but still decided that the all steel pistols are all around a better weapon despite the weight. The original was designed to fire full power loads in the SS pistol. The polymer guns came about from customers requests for a lighter version. Since they were not designed from the ground up they suffer in performance and reliability.
