I'm really pleased with this .380: exactly what I was looking for. It is extremely light, small, and in particular is very narrow -- all of which lead to easy concealability. A bit pricey, but worth it. I've shot it once, and without a glitch of any kind over 136 rounds and two different types of ammo. Happy with the accuracy at 15 yards, as well. My understanding is that Crimson Trace is coming out with a laser guard for it, but a laser grip would be great -- hopefully, that's coming soon. Haven't decided upon a holster type yet (anke, IWB, pocket)...so far, just dropping it into a jacket pocket (though, coming warm weather will limit that). - E. A.
I have had both the MK9 and the PM9 for a while now. Kahr says to allow for a 200 round break in period. I have fired 600-800 rounds through each of the guns with one FTE from the first mag with each of them...AND NO other issues since.
The smooth front and back strap on the MK9 can be a problem if your hands are sweaty but the (some say agressive) stipling on the PM9's grip make it easy to handle. (No blistering or soreness after as many as 200 rounds at a time)
They are both as accurate as you are within 15 yards, which for SD purposes is as much as you can ask for.
I like them both and will carry either every day depending on how I'm carrying that day. - B. B.
I give this pistol high marks. I am a fan of the 1911 45 ACP, and yet am always looking for a light conceal carry weapon in a minimum of 40 cal. This fits the bill. I have found the gun to be reliable and I can shoot it well. Keep looking for one lighter! I've not had jamming problems. I think many problems with well designed autos jamming is the ammo. - J. M.
