I never made an introduction thread so here's some background. Feel free to skip ahead to the pictures if that's your thing. :thumbup: I turned 21 this year. A couple of months ago I decided I'd like to carry, all the time. I began to feel naked without a self-defense pistol before I even settled on one. During my search for the right carry pistol I applied for and received my WA CPL in only 3 days from Lynnwood PD. Kudos to them for their speed! My carry pistol search had begun with subcompacts in .380 but I decided I didn't want to deal with the lack of ammo. When I discovered Kahr Arms I found everything I wanted in a first gun: reliability, low weight, and thin frame in respectable calibers. I decided on a 9mm mostly because of the affordability of the ammunition; I'm still very happy with that decision because I can afford to practice. I ruled out the PM9 after holding it; dangling pinky was a huge, "no thanks!" The P9 looked and felt great but the price was slightly more than I wanted to plink down for a first gun. This left me with the CW9. It's a more plain looking P9 with some MIM parts but minus the polygonal rifling, extra mag, dovetailed front sight...and sticker shock. I started with a Crossbreed Supertuck Deluxe (oh so comfortable) but quickly found that I prefer open carry 90%+ of the time. I found a somewhat local gentleman who does quality, custom gunleather to make me an OWB holster for me. The price was great and I only had to wait one week for it. Enough words; on to the pictures!
