This is an amazing all metal carry pistol. Weighs in just over 20 oz, and is very shootable. I can hit man-size targets all the way out to 30 yds, which is amazing for a pistol this size. The trigger is all Kahr, and smooth as glass with a crisp break. I love the fact Crimson trace makes the replacement laser grips, rather than the system that hangs off the end of the barrel. I have the Elite model, which rounds all edges for super smooth holstering and easy mag changes. All in all, I'm still amazed you can get a 40 S&W in a package this small that's built like a tank, yet carries so well inside the waistband. - J. G.
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.
After I purchase the Kahr PM9 I took it to the range and fired over 200 rds. and it didn't let me down. Now at over 2000 rds. plus it still hasn't had a ftl or fte. It fits in my front pocket so nicely that I almost forget its there. Great for conceal carry.. - L. H.
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.
