I would cerianly look at it. Depending on your needs, your size, your intended use of the weapon, your experiance, your budget, your ability to practice, your laws, your proximity to stores and ranges, why you were recomended that gun, all would play into my thoughts and my recomendations. I own one, I like it. It is not my only weapon but it is a good little gun for what I use it for. Kahr makes quality handguns,especially in the 9mm caliber.
