    does anyone have pictures of a MK9 and a glock 26 so I can view there profiles? the glock 26 I have I have realized it is much to large for me to conceal carry with my small frame.

    I have a comptac CTAC holster with a good quality belt. But the gun is to wide for me.

    do they make smart carry for a MK9?

    Glock 26 slide vs. kahr K9 slide. The PM9 slide would be 1/2" shorter than this one...

    You should consider the P9 or CW9 too. The Kahr is thin enough that the 1/2" longer grip and slide are easy to conceal.

    If you search under my name, I posted a bunch of pictures comparing my G34 (much larger than a 26, but same width) to my Kahr CW9. This picture is misleading because the slide is as wide as the rest of a Kahr P or PM pistol... but the Glock's slide is one of the narrowest parts of the gun.

    I can't get the search to work - it keeps timing out.

    What the heck. Here it is again. Glock 34 is bigger, but just as wide as your 26, so this picture rings true...

    Even with the ogue rubber grip adding 1/4" to the width of the Kahr, it's still just plain stupid skinny compared to a Glock.

    I'm 6'0" and 150 pounds (skinny) and have no troulbe carrying it on my belt under a tucked shirt. I'm happy with the longer grip of the P-series to hold on to - it's so THIN it still doesn't print hardly at all.

    Chop an inch off the grip of the Glock and 2" off the muzzle-end, and you have the G26.

    But also, you'd have to chop 1/2" off both the barrel and the grip of this Kahr to make it PM9 sized. My CW9 is the budget version of the P9. 1,300+ reliable rounds to date. No FTFs or FTEs...

    Without the belt clip you wouldn't be able to tell me wether I was carrying righthanded or lefthanded IWB. ;)

    these pictures and there reliabiliy in there metal fram guns are what have made my decision.

    I was deciding between a S&W snubby .38 and a possible kahr 9mm

    both stainless steel, both good quality. 6+1 sounds better then 5 to me. It appears the kahr would be thinner then a j frame s&w as well.

    Let's not forget faster reloads, which is a consideration in low cap weapons such as revolvers and small, single stack semi-autos.

    they do make speed loaders for the revolers though which would be enough for me. I pray I never even need 5 though, but semi auto's just seem more natural to me.

    There are 3 basic types of revolver speedloaders:

    1. twist the knob

    2. press the loader

    3. neoprene pull off (I'm referring to loaders, not Speed Strips)


    None of them are as fast as a magazine.

    Tell that to Jerry Miculek <--Six shots, reload revolver, 6 shots in under 3 seconds.

    Of course, he's a good bit more skilled that any of us will ever be. ;)

    Yeah, Jerry's amazing.

    Fast shootin' is cool, but just as far as reloading and preparation to fire goes, I wonder how long it takes Enos and Leatham to reload a 1911 and return the slide to battery with the weapon on target v. Miculek kicking out a cylinder, ejecting casings, reloading cartridges, closing the cylinder and returning the weapon to target?

    I would be more comfortable with an extra magazine I think.

    I'm just torn I think
