I am looking at both. Give me your 2cents...........
I don't have experience shooting the Sig P250, but other than being both polymer framed they're apples and oranges. Kahr is a DAO that is extremely thin and very well suited to be a CCW pistol. The Sig can be carried as well, but will take a bit more effort to hide. The Sig is DAO as well, but the trigger had a much shorter reset and is similar to most other Sigs. The Kahr is almost exactly like a double action revolver in reset, length, and smoothness.
Depending on what you want to use it for, both guns fill a niche rather well. I carry a CW9 myself, but I'd have no problems carrying or using either for home defense. I do feel the Sig could be better suited to HD while the Kahr suited more for carry.
I have not shot the Sig, but did own a PM40, and my brother-in-law has the CW9. Great triggers though they do take some getting used to, long and smooth. The grip takes some getting used to also, because it is very narrow, and you can't limp wrist it. The Kahrs are not reliable right out of the box, from my experience and from what I have read. You really do need to go through the break in period to get them running well, but once you do they are very reliable and accurate if you do your part. These guns are perfect for CCW, and bargain price for the quality IMO.
a buddy of mine got a cw9 and loves it. :thumbup:
I love the subcompact 250. alittle thick but fits good in the hand..
I have the P250 in compact and fullsize: 9mm, 40 and .45.
I've never been a DAO fan: I've changed my mind and really like this pistol for cc.
Tried the Kahr's and don't like their trigger, too long a pull.
The sig trigger is very smooth, not too heavy, and just the right length of pull for me.
The compact is very close to a P239 in size, good to carry.
Haven't got a sub...yet.
The Sig, because they aren't owned by a crazy religious cult as far as I know.
Justin Moon has many times stated that his business has nothing to do with his father's church. Please try to remain on topic, gun comparison threads have nothing to do with religion.
I got rained out today but had a chance to put another 50 rounds through my CW9. The only hiccup I had was when trying to rack the slide by hand; it hung up a couple of times but was 100% with the slidestop.
If you're looking to carry and like revolver triggers the Kahr is your ticket.
Hard to beat a kahr in a M-Tach IWB for everyday carry. I've carried my PM-9 that way for the past year and a half..very comfortable, and very reliable set up.
Of course, the son of a megalomaniacal cult leader would never lie, would he?
It's perfectly relevant to point this out about Kahr, just like you might choose to boycott any other business you don't agree with.
So, if a Mormon makes guns are we to refuse to buy them too? Freedom of religion is, and should always be, as basic a right as gun ownership in this country. As long as they aren't hurting anyone who gives a ____ what they believe? And just because it is different than what you think that doesn't mean they are fanatics or crazy. Bottom line, Kahr makes great guns, even if it is tied to a church. Which is an assumption not fact.
Oh yeah, let's not buy any guns made in Germany either, because they are tied to the Nazis.
