I have been carrying Kahr pistols for a couple of years now. I bought and sold a couple of PM9s and P380s before finally settling on the all stainless MK9. While I love the MK9 for it's accuracy, reliability, and compact size, I longed for a pocket gun. Don't get me wrong, the MK9 is easily carried in a pocket size-wise, and depending on what pants/shorts/jacket you are wearing, it does fine weight-wise as well. I wanted something that would work with anything and everything 100% of the time. I tried another P380, ended up selling it as well - I had some reliability hiccups that I am confident could have worked out, but in the end it was too small for me to really shoot well and feel well armed with. So, I picked up a Kahr CM9 in the past month or so. $399 + tax, not bad. The primary differences between the CM9 and PM9 are: - Polygonal rifling (PM9) vs Standard rifling (CM9) - 2 mags (PM9) vs 1 mag (CM9) - More slide bevel and machining (PM9) - Machined bar stock slide stop (PM9) vs MIM slide stop (CM9) Polygonal rifling is nice, but not a must for me. I wasn't bothered by one mag, since I already had plenty of spares with my MK9. As for the slide stop, I am sure the MIM one is fine... but a machined bar stock slide stop is only $24 from Kahr if that bothers you. To me, all of these things are a fair trade-off for the price difference between the CM9 and PM9. The only modifications I have made, is I did spend $24 and put a PM9 machined bar stock slide stop in it, and also the Trijicon night sights. The CM9 is delightfully transparent when carried IWB. I have a Comp-Tac CTAC and an Occidental Leather Stronghold Phoenix both IWB holsters that work greatly with it. I use a Tuff Products pocket holster, and it does a great job of concealing the gun deep in a pocket, and also keeping it still without a great deal of movement within the pocket as you move/walk around. I haven't put a great many number of rounds through this, but today I put 50 rds of 115gr FMJ and 50 rds of 124gr +P JHP (Gold Dots). It was 100% reliable. Went bang every time I pulled the trigger. Recoil was pretty light for a 15oz 9mm. I wasn't trying too much for accuracy today, but was satisfied with what I got (my arms were already fatigued from shooting other guns at this point). Here are some pictures of the gun, and a size comparison to the next closest thing I own, a Glock 30.
