Ruger LCP is the pocket pistol for summer and the Kahr PM9 for Fall, Winter and Spring. As with most semi auto's the Kahr PM9 will lighten a tad bit with break-in. If you can find a NIB Kahr PM9 for $525.00 that is a good price. I paid $469.00 for a NIB XD9SC in OD green and $269.00 for the LCP. The Kahr was much closer to $700.00 and I should have looked around. However, I do not regret purchasing it and love to shoot it compared to the LCP.
To me the XD9SC is a little big to carry for CC since I have an LCP and PM9. It is a great shooting gun, the trigger is awesome, feels good in the hand and I like the 16+1 extended mag for target shooting.
If you get a chance, do try to shoot them as this will help you make an educated decision.
Good luck and have fun....
