Hi Folks, I don't post here much, but I generally read a lot. That's why I need to ask your opinion on something. Currently, my home defense gun is a Kahr K9. I have carried it some, but mostly it has been a home defense / truck gun. The reason for this post is that I am thinking about trading it in for a G19. Here's why... First, I would like something that will take a higher capacity magazine. Fifteen rounds for the G19 vs. Seven round mag for the K9. Second, the fact that the G19 has a rail for mounting lasers / lights. Since this is an HD gun, a mounted light is important to me. My Kahr has served me well, but I think it's time for something a little more for HD use. My everyday carry is a G27 or a Ruger LCP in the front pocket. My wife has a Taurus 85 .38 spl that she carries. Here are a few questions... Those of you who own both Kahrs and Glocks... which do you prefer and why... the G19 or the K9? Second, how well does the G19 carry if there were ever an instance to where I needed to carry it? If my wife can effectively shoot the K9, do you think she would have a problem with the G19? Finally, what do you think a fair trade in value would be on a Kahr K9 that has had around 600 rounds through it, but has no other visible wear or scratches (I have taken extremely good care of it)? Thanks for your replies in advance. I would love to keep both, but I own several other handguns and a ton of long guns. My wife has respectfully asked that if I get something new, to please trade something in. I know that sucks, but I want to keep her happy.
