I own several Kahrs: P380 PM9 P9 K9 T9 P45 TP45 I would be comfortable carrying any of them. The P9 is my daily carry. The PM9 or the P380 are my pocket carry as the situation dictates. I have had some reliability issues but all of them have come down to Ammo related issues. For instance my P45 does not like semi wadcutters. As long as I shoot FMJ round nose or JHP it eats everything. The P380 loves all commercial Ammo. It does not like my reloads as much. I do not blame it my 380 reloads are terrible (my reloads for it are made using a Lee hand press using surplus 9mm 115 gr bullets). I honestly do not understand people beef with Kahr. They do require a break in period but then they just run like a top.
