    I like the Shield better but that is what I like, not necessarily you.

    I can sometimes (depending on the garment) pocket carry the CM9, never with the Shield. Both have been 100% reliable for me, both have good triggers, tough call. If you are going to carry IWB I'd take the Shield. If you want a pocket option---CM9.

    Are you referring to cargo shorts?

    All I wear are cargo shorts and a tee year-round here in South FL (except to work, of course). Right now I carry a KT P-32 every day in a pocket holster....even to work.

    I have been drooling over the CM9 for a few months now and would buy it in a heartbeat if I knew it could go comfortably in cargo shorts.

    Your thoughts please:cool:

    Thanks,

    Shield all the way.

    I had a .40 -- IT IS A SMALL GUN , and I had no problem carrying in a DeSantis Nemesis pocket holster no problem.

    I wouldn't consider the Khar when their are options like the Shield and XDs (coming in 9mm).

    I'd say go with the Shield my friend, i believe you can't go wrong with that 9mm, it shoots very accuratley and recoil is a lot better then lets say a Glock 26 if you've shot one. At least for me.

    That's exactly what I was referring to. I front pocket carry my CM9 in a Galco pocket holster pretty frequently.

    As others have said, for pocket or other small places get the Karh PM9. I also find the longer trigger travel on the Karh to be more comforting from a safety standpoint.

    I have no experience with the Kahr, but have to say that I have no issues pocket carrying the Shield in jeans or cargo shorts, and absolutely love it.

    CM9 is what I carry sometimes. It's a quality, reliable gun, and, from what I've been able to tell, it's smaller than the Shield. My CM9 is as dependable as any handgun that I've ever carried. One could do a lot worse in purchasing a pocket nine.

    For me I can front pocket carry a CM9 in almost every pants and shorts I own, but the Shield is a tad too long and will slightly stick out most of my front pockets.

    The cutoff for me is 5 3/4" , the Shield is 6.1" long while the PM9/CM9 is about 5 1/2. If I can't pocket carry a 6.2" Snubnose revolver in the certain pockets because the grip peeks out the top of the pocket, the Shield will do the same thing.

    I do not have a Shield, but I do have a CM9. My CM9 makes me certain that I have no use for a Shield. The CM9 of mine has been flawless, and most who have a CM9 love them. If I didn't have one and had to choose....based on the dimensions, I'd go with the Kahr.
     
  18. CM9 for pocket carry, shield if it's for IWB.
