The CM9. It is an awesome little gun.

I had a Kahr CW45 and while I liked the gun itself, it was too small of a frame for a .45 caliber. The damn thing hurt after 2-3 magazines thru it! LOL I'm a pansy though so you real men might like it. It would've been an awesome carry in a smaller less painful caliber. Anticipating the hit made me inaccurate with it. My first shot of the day with it was always dead nuts on and then it would get worse and worse as the day went on. LOL

BTW, the trigger was the same as yours andy on that cw45. Couldn't barely feel it click when it actually went off dry firing it. You'd hear it but barely feel it. And then the reset, you really had to pay attention to figure out where it was.

Ditto. It was that or the Shield and I got tired of waiting for the S&W.

Try the 9mm Khris. No hammered hand felt recoil with the 9. I wanted the CW for the extra round in the mag but felt like the CM was just a little bit easier to conceal with how I dress.

Ugh, now I'm gonna have to look at the Kahr CM9 again before I continue to actively pursue the XDs .45.

They have cm9 and cw9 at American shooters to rent if you actually want to test it out. Or if you are in no hurry, shoot mine next time I go out.

I think I might take you up on your offer, ranges don't like it much when you test fit rental guns in different pockets.

That story in Florida was a .38 revolver, if I'm not mistaken. A .38 packs a bit more punch than a .380. I guarantee you though, if those same six rounds were placed in the upper torso(lungs/heart), the outcome would be different! Bullets don't like hard structures like skulls! They much prefer softer tissues like skin, muscle, and blood....it's all about center mass shots. More likelihood of hitting something good. Besides, a "bleed out" is just as goo as a decent head shot!

Well I went and picked up another G23 on sunday. I love the 40 cal round for a CCW weapon. Will post pics later when I get home from work.

Hah, this is true. Might be going to CCSP on Thursday night. We'll figure something out one way or the other.

No need to put a rush on it for me; I am in absolutely no hurry. I am completely swamped wrenching on my rig this week getting ready for the marathon so I wouldn't be able to do anything this week anyway.

If the two of you can't find time to get together, I'll let you shoot mine.

I have a G27 as my alternate CCW gun. I picked up the Kahr because I wanted something in single stack. If I could have found a .40 single stack in stock somewhere I likely would have bought it.

How do you like the 27 andy? I find the glock sub compacts to be way too small. But again I havent really messed with a compact much. Maybe id like it.

I like it. I found that with the sub-compacts, you have to have a pinky extension. No two ways about it. There is a bit more kick with it than with a G23 or a G22 but it is managable. Currently, all my guns but my CM9 are at my Dad's house in Texas. When I get back from the sandbox, I'll make a trip down there to get them.

There is a difference between a head shot and a kill shot. The kill zone is eyebrows down to upper lip. Vast majority of people think fore head but the fore head is the strongest part of the skull. That's why so many people die trying to defend against a bear. They shoot them in the thick part of the skull and they keep coming due to lack of penetration. Self defense, center mass all day. Any caliber center mass will cause enough damage to cause possible death. Another reason why self defense rounds are used for self defense. Use them for what they are for, turning soft tissue into jelly.
