Kahr CM9 - I hate myself

Well I was at the local grocery store and stopped to look at gun magazines.

I read a writeup on the Kahr CM9.

Now I have a fever and want one. I hate myself.

Can anyone tell me about this pistol?

Anyone wish to report on it?

Thank you for your therapy.

Take a couple of aspirins and lay down until the feeling passes.

You're welcome.

Okay, more info.

A buddy had to have one. Heard about it for months. Finally got it. Greatest thing since sliced bread. Blah, Blah, blah.

6 months later, sold it at a huge loss. Didn't care for the shooting characteristics, wasn't as accurate as gun X/Y/Z, didn't hold enough shots.

I think it's the best of the new pocket 9's.

Yea, its an awesome gun.

Small enough to easily pocket carry, but big enough to be able to actually shoot.

All the goodness of the PM9 at $400 is hard to beat. A buddy just got a CM and he loves it as much as I've loved all my Kahrs.

I have had one for a month. I dont have anything bad to say about it. All I have shot through it are cast hand loads and it has been perfect.

I have a PM9 with night sights. I love it. It does take some getting used to though. The trigger pull is long but smooth. I'm more used to a Glock trigger but if you practice you can get good with it. It's hard to pocket carry in most pants but it goes good in a coat pocket. The reason I bought it is because it is so small and it is still 9mm. I carry AIWB and you can't even tell it's there with just a t-shirt. It's something you can carry everyday no matter what.

Too many. Kimber solo. Sig P938. Sig P239.(technically not pocket pistols, but sub compacts). Rohrbaugh. Kel Tec PF9. Ruger LC9. Springfield EMP. Smith Wesson CS9.

I think the PM9 is one of the best small 9's out there (and it's about the smallest to boot). It shoots surprisingly well considering its size and weight.

The CM9 should be similar but I don't have any experience with it.

I love mine. Eats everything I feed it and disappears into my front pocket.

Here is some info on the CM versus the PM: http://www.gunblast.com/Kahr-CM9.htm.

I love mine. I've had it about 8 months and put about 700 rounds through it. It fits very easy in most of my pockets without any major printing.

I had one FTF but that was my fault. I didn't have the magazine seeded all the way. Other than that, flawless. I've never been one to carry two firearms but with the CM9 as my BUG it makes it very easy

Love my PM9.

Has anyone wondered why Glock doesn't make a single stack 9?

But seriously, the trigger is different but you can easily adjust. Mine has been flawless.

I have also been very, very interested in the Kahr CM9. Great price for a small gun. It's what the Diamondback DB9 wishes it could be.

Love my CM9. I carry it 90% of the time, IWB in a PJ Holster kydex sheath. I find it just a bit too big for comfortable pocket carry. It fits, but swings around too much, bumping my leg and annoying the crap out of me. (I just got a Taurus TCP for true pocket carry.)
