    I have myself situated a good distance "out in the boonies". Would like to at least get a close up look/hold in my hand, the PM9094. There just seems to be none in the state of Montana. I got the impression that Kahr's dealers (the ones they list on their site) are frustrated with the company , and as I has said, the dealer in Kalispell quit carrying the Kahr line last year.
    I have seen the ones on Gun Broker, it's just that once you add on the shipping and pay for the FFL, I'll be looking at around $800. That in itself is making the Glock 26 look a little better. The Kalispell dealer does carry the Glock line, along with Sig & Kimber.

    My PM 9 as with my Glocks has been 100% reliable even through the 200 round break in period.

    Start looking at the CW series of Kahr. They only run $412NIB at my LGD. I found a slightly used one for $300 but I don't live in Montana. The big differences between My Glock 27 and my Kahr CW40 is the thickness of the grip and mag capacity. The stainless slide you won't be getting on the Glock. The reliability IMO is equal.
    Good luck with your decision.

    I sell firearms, so I get to see the guns that come back in for repairs.
    I have also been an instructor, so again, I have seen which guns malfuntion on the firing line.
    Against all common wisdom, I have have had 5 out of the 7 Glocks that I have used have malfunctions while shooting, on the first trip out.
    A full 50% of the stove pipes on the firing line were Glocks. Probably because more of them were Glocks.
    I have owned 2 Kahr 45s. 1 a P45, and now a PM45. After about 5,000 rnds, I have had exactly zero malfuntions of any kind.
    The only issue I have seen has been 2 in the same number of years that have had a weak spring at the slide release pin, that keeps the slide from locking back after the last round. This is easily fixed with a new spring.
    Bottom line is that both Glock & Kahr are good guns. Both are mechanical device's and all mechanical device's are prone to occasional problems.
    I would buy the one you like as long as it properly fit's your hand. Most folks are not aware of how to determine proper fit, but that is the most important thing. Glocks do not fit my shorter fingers properly.

    Remember to, that if there is a problem with the gun; Glock or Kahr; it can be fixed with few issues after the fix. Get the one you want and spend less time worrying about which is better, and spend more time shooting. Good luck!

    I like that attitude.

    I own both the PM9 and the G26. I am very accurate with both. Since my PM9 went back to the mother ship,
    I've not had a single issue. The G26 has never given me a problem. I live in Florida and wear shorts all the
    time. I find it challenging to conceal the G26. I don't wear a belt and a waist band holster is difficult for me
    to use. My PM9 fits nicely in a pocket holster. For that reason the PM9 is my main carry.
    However, I would never get rid of my G26, it's a great weapon.

    there is a break-in period

    I bought a Khar PM9 this past week and it jammed like crazy through the brakein period. Every other mag had at least one FTF. After about 500 rounds the FTF issue has gone away on the 6 round mag, but the 7 round mag has problems. Its a mag issue not a gun issue. Called Khar and they are sending me a new 7 round mag. I love the gun. Seriously accurate and I have complete faith in it (with the 6 round mag...). I also have a full frame Glock 22 .40SW that i think is an excellent weapon, but I'm more accurate with the smaller Khar. I 100% recommend the gun, you just will need to have the expectation that its going to jam like crazy until its broken in, and then it will behave perfectly.

    Check out the CM9. Same as the PM9 for a lot less money.

    Concerning your choice. Everybody's got a Glock. The Kahr is a very handsome gun that conceals very well. The Glock is dual stack and blockish. I have the CM9 for several months now and couldn't be happier.

Been looking though the forums (Kahr, Glock, DefensiveCarry.com and this one) and keep reading about all the problems with the Kahr. Then there is the 200 round break-in. Maybe I am just spoiled with my G19. No break-in and has shot flawlessly for the 500 rounds I have put through her
    Shoot as well????? My Kahr PM9 and my P45 are extremely accurate..............Glock is a block

    I own and carry a Gen 4 Glock 19 and a Kahr CW45 and both are very good handguns. Neither one has ever failed me in any aspect. The Kahr is easier to conceal than the G19 just because it has a smaller profile. I usually alternate the between the two depending on the weather and attire. In the winter I tend to carry the G19 more often because it is easy to cover up with a coat or jacket. In the warmer weather, I carry the Kahr instead because it is smaller and thinner and easily concealed with just covering it with a T shirt and/or polo shirt.
