The transaction from Bud\'s was relatively easy. After a lot of research, I opted to try the Kahr CM9 for my CCW. The predominate factors of my purchase were reviews concerning: reliability, size/weight, shoot-ability, and safety. Cost was somewhat of a factor too, but I was willing to spend more if a pricier option essentially justified it. Out the door, I spent about $330 for the CM9. That\'s a phenomenal price when you consider that the Kahr PM9 (the more premium version) has historically costed about double this! In fact, the CM9 has historically costed more than the $330 I spent! My experience... The Kahr owner\'s manual insists that you break-in the weapon with at least 200 rounds before attempting to rely upon it daily. I totally agree! I\'m of the opinion that ANY firearm for CCW should be tested and trained with prior to carry! Within the first 250 rounds the CM9 had a few failures to feed and one stovepipe. There were also a couple of failures to lock upon after the last round. I\'ve since put hundreds of more rounds through it without a single failure. It\'s my guess that the SUPER STIFF recoil spring and mag springs played a role in the initial failures. Before taking the CM9 to the range, I would advise locking the slide back for several days, working the heck out of the action and dry-firing the weapon, and leaving your mags loaded. You\'ll also want to disassemble the weapon and give it a good cleaning and inspection before going to the range. Accuracy... The CM9 is capable of some pretty impressive accuracy. My groups were horrible the first time I shot the CM9. I then realized what the problems were. I was anticipating the recoil and pulling the nose down. Additionally, the long double action trigger was something unfamiliar to me (I\'m used to Glock triggers). After some user adjustments and gaining familiarity with the long double action trigger, I was able to generally maintain 3\" groups at about 15-20 feet. More on this below. Random positives... Recoil on this tiny pistol is extremely manageable in spite of its small size. The trigger smooths out quite a bit after you put 200-400 rounds through it. It noticeably lightens and looses some of its creek. It ends up feeling like a really good/smooth double action revolver trigger (but significantly lighter than any I\'ve ever felt). Negatives... The factory stippling is a bit rough and can really wear into your hand when shooting more than about 50 rounds through it. As the weapon has broken it, I\'ve grown more accustomed to the aggressive stippling. Some might want to try add-on grips. While I\'ve been able to gain decent accuracy with the weapon, this has come (in part) with the need to elevate the front sight above the rear sight. If I don\'t elevate the front sight quite a bit, then I will consistently hit several inches below my desired target. Some others I\'ve talked to have experienced the same. While the overall external fit and finish of the weapon is relatively nice, the internal fit and finish of the slide is a bit rough. The rear of the slide was particularly this way. These things don\'t affect the performance of the weapon at all. I personally chose to smooth some of the roughly machined edges on the underside of the slide as well as the sharp edges on the slide release lever. This took about 2 minutes. Other manufacturers I\'ve seen with similarly priced firearms put more emphasis on their fit and finish. This isn\'t a deal-breaker, but it\'s something I appreciate. My possible biggest concern would be the absence of a metal frame block or chassis in Kahr\'s polymer pistols. This contributes to why Kahr polymer pistols are so lightweight and slim. All of the other single stack manufacturers that I\'ve seen use a metal fame block or chassis within their polymer frames. I\'m not an engineer, but it seems like the life of the weapon would be greatly extended with the incorporating of a metal block or chassis. Yet, I\'ve heard of some folks putting many thousands of rounds through their Kahr\'s without any real significant frame wear. I\'m in the process of getting another Kahr.

EXCELENT pocket gun compared to LCP II. I liked it so much that I have ordered a second! Fits in my back pocket with a suitable holster.

Perfect little pocket 9mm, if there is such a thing. Fired the break in recommended number of rounds (combo of brands, hp and fmj) without a single hiccup. Weight is light, trigger is long and smooth, great carry piece.

This CM9 is well built and reliable. I've put close to a thousand rounds through this pistol with brass, aluminum, and steel casings without failure. It's surprisingly accurate, powerful, and ergonomic. It conceals well and breaks down with minimal effort. This pistol is a gem and in my opinion, it is at the top of the list of single stack 9mms because of its overall size weight potential capacity, all at a great price.

For the price my only issue is that the mags get stuck in gun if you put them in to hard. Buds was great as always.
