    I have the PM9 and it has been 100% out of the box. I think the PM9 has been around long enough to establish a track record of sorts.

    The LC9 hasn't exactly established a record yet. Ruger might yet end up juggling, for example, recoil spring strength ,etc if problems end up developing.

    If it proves to be as reliable as the LCP has become it should be a winner. I want one, but am going to wait a few months to see how they hold up.

    have a little expeience with ruger lcp, lc9 none with kahr except i too was interested in pm9 because of size and weight. all of these little guns have heavy triggers pulls and are not for me. suggestion would be a glock 26 or 27 not much bigger or heavier and not too costly. good luck! whatever you decide

    Kahr clear winner.

    Agreed...within reason. Every gun has its idiosyncrasies. But if the mfr told me I had to manually rack the slide three times before inserting the magazine, that is unreasonable.

    Once you get used to loading this way, it becomes second nature. It is not a problem at all.

    What I do is manually load a round without the magazine in the Kahr using the slide release. Then, I load a full 7-round mag...now I have 8 shots ready to go. If I am doing fast reloading, the slide will already be open from the last round of the previous mag, so I just eject the empty and load the second one, releasing with the slide release and ready to go again for seven more rounds. Sometimes I use the six round mag plus one in the chamber, with two 7 round mags loaded. That is 20 rounds available.

    To me the Kahr is a clear winner...if you can afford it. You may want to consider the CM-9 instead to save a little money, but the PM definitely has better clustering.

    Good Luck!

    I think most folks have good luck with Kahrs. I didn't. Even after a trip back to Kahr, at my expense, the PM9 still wouldn't empty a mag without a malfunction. A fluke? Maybe. But I decided to stay away from them. My LC9 has been 100% out of the box. Mostly my reloads but it also ate some CCI aluminum perfectly. WWB and Critical Defense, 0 problems. It's the only "pocket" pistol that I sometimes carry instead of my 442.
