Hey new member here and first thread. So I was in the market for a good subcompact/ pocket pistol that was ideal for EDC and reliable. After doing a lot of research, I settled on the Kahr CM9 style. I went with the CM9 dues to is size, 9mm caliber, style, and good reviews. Also, Kahr is a reputable company with great quality guns. According to the user manual, there's a break-in period of 200 rounds. I decided to take it out to the range and put in a hundred rounds. The gun is a blast to shoot. It's well balanced with it's size, weight, and firepower. The sights took a little time to get used to. It seemed to shoot 2 inches lower than what you have line up. I adjusted after the first 25-28 rounds. The gun never jammed or had any issues with feeding. Grouping was within a good range. The DAO trigger was interesting to me. It was nice yet strange to me. I modified my glock19 trigger to be about 3.5-4 lbs, so the 5-6 lbs of the kahr was a weird feeling. But it is very nice though and with practice it won't be an issue. The only issues I have with the CM9 is the grips and the slide release. After putting a hundred rounds through it, my hand was pretty sore and short of getting blisters. The slide release was pretty tricky to use. I'm able to release the slide but it takes pretty good force. The slide release on my glock19 slid like butter, so the CM9 took a little while to get used to. The CM9 is not a range gun. The reason I got this gun is for concealed last resort carry, so I can live with it not being an ideal range gun. Overall, it's a great gun with great firepower in a light and concealable package. Although it isn't quite the range/practice gun I'd usually like it to be, it definitely serves it's purpose as a last ditch carry gun. I am overall very pleased with this purchase and trust the CM9 as a CCW. :thumbup: I wouldn't hesitate to buy another kahr if it was in the right price range.
