A while back I traded NGIB my stainless Springer GI for something more sensible as an EDC back in August. Before the 1911 kool-aid drinkers start in, I am a fan of the gun. However, when you have 4 titanium screws and 3 rods fusing you from L3 to S1 in your lumbar spine, that much weight on the hip is not comfortable and can cause a great deal of pain. It was a great gun, and was a classier carry piece for more formal situations. It just wasn't reasonable for me to carry it if it was going to cause me pain. I was very impressed with the fit and finish of the gun. For those unfamiliar with it, the P9 is just a dressed up CW9 with more hand work and milling. The rifling is also polygonal instead of standard. It came with night sights, two holsters (even swap), and some ammo (even swap with some .45 of mine). Well, I've been carrying it for a while now. It has replaced my 642 Airweight and 1911 as an EDC. It's so light, I sometimes forget it's there. Very thin, sleek, points well, and is just plain comfortable to hold (even though I have big hands). It makes the Glock 27 I used to have look like a cinderblock and my 642 bulky. The trigger is phenomenal. I finally got some free time (I'm student teaching full-time this semester, and the school district is on fall break this week), so I decided to actually go and fire the gun I've been trusting my life to (Yes, I'm bad...). Since I had to take care of business in Savannah, I decided to hit up Patrick's. The first 20 rounds were 115gr. JHPs from MA Customs at 15 feet. They grouped pretty well. Then I went to 50 rounds of MA Customs 115gr. FMJ reloads at 20 feet. The performance was okay, but you could tell they were reloads. I did have one failure to feed, but this was due to a round that I could see was too long before placing it in the magazine. I just decided to place it in to see if it would feed. More fliers here, but I think it was a combination of ammo and shooter. I also did try to get some head shots on the small guy, so those at the bottom aren't that bad. I then proceeded to shoot 50 rounds of Independence 115gr. FMJ and 50 rounds of Federal Champion 115gr. FMJ. The Independence grouped very well, even at 25 and 30 feet. I started playing with distances, although this is not a distance gun, just to see what it was capable of. No picture of it, but flinches and trigger issues were definitely more apparent at distances beyond 15 feet. Still, groups were respectable. Again, this isn't a match gun, so I consider anything "minute of a man's head/vitals" to be good For the grand finale, I put up an adhesive reactive target on the original target and shot 12 rounds of 115gr. Hornady Critical Defense at 20 feet. Like almost everything I have ever shot by Hornady, it grouped well. I thought I took pictures, but my phone lost them. I then covered those holes and shot what was going to be 12 rounds of 124gr. +P Speer GDHP at 20 feet. Wow... While the entire CW and P line of Kahr pistols is +P rated, I would not recommend it if you planned to make any sort of distant shots. The gun worked fine, but the shooter had a bit of a jolt. I decided to fire the remaining rounds from the box of 20. To see if there would be any improvements. Grouping started to improve, but +P is far from tame in this tiny package. The best thing I have to compare it to would be a DoubleTap or Buffalo Bore 158gr. +P hollowpoint in a 642. Snappy ain't the word for it. However, keep in mind this is someone with big hands firing a small gun. Your results may vary. I plan to keep some in the backup mag, but I wouldn't use it for ranged shots. I took it home, cleaned it, and cleaned the mags. The wife has made me start cleaning my guns outside due to the smell of CLP, Shooter's Choice, RemOil, etc. stinking up the house. Disassembling the gun is a breeze, and it cleaned up quickly. In disassembling one of the mags, which by the way make Glock mags look like a Rubic's Cube, I managed to lose one of the small plastic pieces with a nipple that goes between the floorplate and the spring. This was out of a new mag the wife bought me for it, so I replaced it with one from one of the older mags that came with the gun. I looked everywhere before giving up, even crawling on the ground under the porch. Pros: - Slim and lightweight - Easy to conceal OWB or IWB - Comfortable to shoot, even if you have big hands - Accurate, especially for what it is - Easy to maintain/KISS engineering - +P Rated - Feeds like a champ - Low recoil on loads within standard pressure specifications, even at the top end - Phenomenal trigger - Massive extractor Cons: - Holsters not easy to find (in stores at least) - Magazines expensive - +P probably going to be uncomfortable to shoot - Might forget you're wearing it and walk into an off limits place - If you aren't used to a DA trigger, it will take some getting used to - No "double strike"/"second chance" capability if you get a hard/bad primer - Availability I don't know why more places don't carry these guns. The whole lineup seems to have rave reviews, customer service (from what I've read) is top notch, and it's probably the last carry gun I'll buy for a LONG time. I feel that comfortable about it.
