The Kahr P380 is right up there at the top of the price list. Unfortunately the price does push a lot of people out of the Kahr market while shopping for a 380. However, this no longer has to be the case because Kahr is now offering the 380 pocket pistol in their CW line. The new and cheaper option will be the CW380.

Until the recent release of the CW380 we prefered a few of the cheaper options as they provide a quality concealed firearm at a better price point. The CW380 has now made your decision a bit tougher.

With that in mind there is a good chance that you will purchase the Smith & Wesson Bodyguard. However, if price is not a major factor for you then we recommend you get to your shop and see how the two pistols feel in your hand.

We have mentioned before that our love of the customer service and warranty through S&W makes us a bit biased, but it’s hard to go wrong with either pistol here.

9mm CCW Comparison, Kel Tec PF-9 vs. Kahr PM9 Kahr CM9

| Comparisons, Product Info | September 8, 2011

There is a chance that the first thing you notice about these 9mm pistol options could be the price difference. What justifies spending, in the case of the Kahr PM9, up to $450 more than the Kel Tec PF-9? Well, that is an extremely hard question to answer. Both the Kahr and Kel Tec are good firearms. The size of the Kahr PM9 / CM9 is preferable from a concealed carry point of view, but even that can be argued based on your method for concealment. Let’s be honest, it really comes down to personal preference on this one.

Specification Comparison:

Make / Model Height Length Width Weight Capacity Price
Kel Tec PF-9 4.3 in. 5.85 in. .88 in. 12.7 oz. 7+1 $333.00
Kahr PM9 4.0 5.42 .9 15.9 6/7+1 $786.00

Kimber Solo and Kahr PM9 – Kahr CM9, a 9mm CCW comparison

| Comparisons, Product Info | August 25, 2011

The Kahr PM9 was micro 9 pocket pistol before micro 9 pocket pistol was cool… After the huge boom in popularity of .380 ACP pocket pistols we saw demand for .380 ACP exceed production for both ammo and arms. Take that and throw in our constant desire for more stopping power and you get the micro 9 concealed carry 9mm market.

Let’s be honest though, how many of these 9mm pistols even deserve to be called a pocket pistol? I suppose it’s all relative and subjective and such, but last time I checked most of these so called pocket pistols have nearly the same print as a 1911. Given the choice, I would take a .45 or even a 9mm 1911 design over any of the micro 9’s that don’t fit the pocket pistol description.

Thankfully with all this said, the Kimber Solo, Kahr PM9 and Kahr CM9 actually went with the concept and did a fairly good job. They may border on being small enough to deserve the tag pocket pistols, but right now bordering is better than missing the mark.  We have a quick comparison below for you to check out.  One thing that might stick out is the $$$$$$ section.  The Kahr CM9 gives you a nice little savings.  The differences between the PM9 and CM9 come down to manufacturing processes, but the dimensions of both remain the same.

Make / Model Height Length Width Weight Capacity Price
Kimber Solo 3.9 in. 5.5 in. 1.2 in. 17 oz. 6+1 $747.00
Kahr PM9 4.0 5.42 .9 15.9 6/7 $786.00
Kahr CM9 4.0 5.42 .9 15.9 6 $565.00
