    About the same. The Kahr is surprisingly accurate for its size and I can do all 7 in an 8" circle at 25 yds if I aim carefully. I haven't had a chance to get the Glock to a range greater than 12 yards yet, though I suspect it will be about the same. Either is plenty good enough for defensive work. I do know that I can tear up a target with either at 7 yards. Recoil isn't an issue for either because I've shot .40's for so long that 9mm feels light even in smaller form factors.

    I'm probably a bit faster on doubles and follow-ups with the Glock because I can ride the reset instead of the long, full Kahr pull. It took me a few hundred rounds and lots of dry-fire time to nail down how to deal with that long trigger pull. Now that I've got it I don't even think about it any more, but it IS a bit slower. I haven't timed splits or anything because I don't have the facilities, but the Glock feels faster to me anyway.

    I hadn't thought of it, but now that you mention it you may be right. I've trusted Glock for decades. I did pick the G26 specifically for working in the yard on the fence because I thought it would handle the conditions (sweaty, dirty, etc) better than the Kahr. I remember thinking something like "Don't want to sweat up the laser..." I know for a fact that the Kahr is more sensitive to limp-wristing, so the Glock would be better for weak hand stuff, and the ability to slingshot (Kahr won't) would help with a disabled hand. I've never knowingly made a decision based on those last two, but maybe they're in the back of my mind.

    I too have the CM9 and gen4 26 combo for carry. I originally bought the CM9 for pocket carry but find myself carrying it whenever I carry. Don't get me wrong I love my 26, but the CM9 just disappears IWB. I will transition to the 26 during the winter, but for now the CM9 gets the nod. Also, I shoot the 26 better than the CM9, but not by much at close range. As far as capacity, I have no problem with 7 in the gun and two 6 round mags in my cargo pocket.

    Two things that you frequently read on GT are:

    - different handguns for winter and summer carry
    - CCW handgun rotation

    Personally, I subscribe to the notion that a person should pick a weapon and make it their EDC...regardless of the season. While it makes sense to rotate shoes...why handguns?

    For me, the G26 is a very versatile handgun and a good choice for concealed carry SD.
