I like large, blocky semi-autos but I dont usually carry anything on a day to day basis so these pistols are great for me. I am considering carrying all the time so I'm looking into really small 9mms. I'm almost always wearing jeans and a t-shirt, and here in CT you must be very concealed (a lump under your jacket will get you a talk with police here). My research has got me liking a Khar. Never really heard much of them so I'm looking for your expert advise. Any other autos like this I'm open to suggestions. Needs to be pocket carryable.

For small autos in that price range, Kahr may be a good choice. Consider also the Glock 26 and 27 and also the Springfield XD9-SC or XD40-SC. I've been carrying a G-27 on and off for several yrs and am selling it to buy a Springfield XD, after all the really good reports I've heard from members on this and other forums. Nothing wrong with the G-27, mind you, I'm just ready for a change.

I know a few people who carry Kahrs and love them.

Just be advised that they needed to be broken in, they're action is stiff until they have lots of rounds through them.

I just shot one at the range Sunday for the frist time. It was the CW9 model and beloned to the lady who runs the range. I tell you this much it impressed me. At 20 feet I was keeping it in the 8 ring and that's good enough for me. It was light and easy to conceal. I recommend it highly for anybody wanting a light in their face hand gun. :-B-:

I love my Kahr. I had the 9mm but upgraded to the Kahr T40. It's about the same size as the G26 but slimmer. Super accurate.

The Kel Tec PF 9 is an option.
Their P3AT in .380 at 13.2 ounces with 7 is a nice little pocket gun.
We have two of them.
Be warned that the lighter the gun, the bigger the round, the more they kick!

I'm considering the Kahr PM 9. Really small for a 9. Kahr is coming out with a similar looking .380 in June. Slightly smaller. I started off looking for an LCP, I didn't really like the Kel-tec, ( something about being able to see a large gap between the slide and frame.) and the Kahr seemes like a good choice for a small carry piece.
The only down side is the price, around $600 if you want the blackened version.

I dunno.
I have a Kahr MK9 Elite 98 that's purdy darn nice!!!
However, I like the fact that I can load two 17 round G17 mags and carry them as spares for my G26. :cool:

I have never owned or fired a Kahr pistol. I like the looks of them and they have a nice balance. Checked them out in the guns stores before but never had the urge to buy one.

Too many nice guns out there and not enough money.
