    For some reason* I've gotten over my cheap gun affinity (although I still think Taurus is a great brand)

    *Maybe it's all the cash that's rolling in, go computer illiteate gettysburg!

    ANYWAY

    Anyone own either? Any other small automatics you can reccomend?

    Buying my mom a present (which I will probably use regardlessssss) HOORAY FOR OBTUSE JUSTIFICATION

    I own a couple Glocks the 23 and 27. Both .40 cal. Love 'em. I have thought of getting the Kahr .40 cal model- don't know the model number because it is even lighter than my 27. Looks like it would be easier to conceal.

    But I would rather buy me junk for the truck right now.

    Neither!!!! Lady Smith-snub nose 5 shot with .38+p rounds. No messing with mags or levers, just point and click. What my mom carries and she is 69, and can put em all in a torso at 20 feet, good enough.

    I have a PM9 in my collection. On a 1-10 scale of satisfation I would give it an 8. Mine hasn't left the house in quite awhile. The dept. I work for has an approved list of off-duty carry weapons listed by brand. Kahr is not on the list. Admin doesn't see the need to update the outdated brand list... :mad: .

    About the gun. Extremely concealable!! I could wear shorts with a tucked in t-shirt and you would never know it was there. It is very light, around 16oz. I do have to be more conscience of how I sit or bend over when carrying one of my Glocks, even the G26 and G27.

    My Kahr is very reliable. I practice with Wal-Mart 115gr. WWB and load with Winchester Ranger 127gr +P+. I have put a couple hundred of the +P+ through it and had no problems. I, however, still have alot more faith in the reliability of my Glocks.

    If you are serious about it being for your mom, you might want to get your hands on one to try. The PM9 is very small and thus has a stiff recoil spring. My wife has alittle difficulty properly operating the slide. She does not have this problem with any of the Glocks. I personally haven't noticed that big of a difference but she has.

    One more thing. Even though the Kahr is tiny, it is very controllable and quite accurate.


    Wow. I think this is my longest post yet!!

    I always try to discourage women from carrying in their purse. You know the first thing a "purse snatcher" goes for. Plus, if you set the purse down even for a second you just lost positive control of the weapon.

    Also, please don't carry a Glock loose. At least put it in a pocket holster. :blush:

    Well, I wish my mom would carry but I doubt it's going to happen, and it's going to be a .38 revo anyway for simplicity

    So year really it's for my right cargo pocket

    Thank you very much for the info!

    Not bad at all with .38 +p. "Quite noticable" with full .357. I have one of these also but it is a safe queen. I used to load it first 3 .38 +p, last 2 .357.
