Also, kind of a side question- I've been browsing the forum a little since posting my question, and have come across a few disgruntled Kahr owners. As I said, I have an XD40 compact, which I initially bought as a good all around, one gun to own. I love that gun and have only had about 500 rounds through, but not a single glich! For me, it's like a glock... but fits better in MY hand, shoots dead nuts on, and, unlike the glock, looks good. Its an awesome gun!
What are the reliability concerns with kahr? I read Brad's whole mykahrsucks page and the thread, and it kinda has me a little indifferent. I bought my P9 to carry, and if im in a situation, I wanna pull a gun that WILL shoot! On the other hand, alot of people have responded with praise for the Kahr, but I don't see this kind of dissatisfaction with a gun like the Springfield. Should I have bought a XD-9mm sub compact? I paid $600 for my Kahr, and I want to be able to count on it, every day! If i wanted to buy something to wonder about I would have picked up a Kel-Tec for a more 'wonder-if-it-works' price.
What are your thoughts? I know I'm saying all this w/o even getting any rounds through it, but its already got me a little concerned.
