I have a lot of use for my .410. It’s great for small game, especially when you can’t use a rimfire due to not knowing where the rounds will go. Like tree rats in tree.

I went to the gun store the other day with every intention of getting a Ruger LC9. Then I found out it had a magazine safety disconnect. The trigger was pretty smooth, but a little to looong to my liking. Between the two, I couldn’t justify buying one. Picked up a Kahr CM9 and fell in love with that thing. Put 125 rounds through it at the range today. Pretty sweet!

Yeah the LC9 has a long DA trigger pull but its very consistent.

You prefer the Kahr?

That would be the first thing I’d do. It has a slide safety for heaven’s sake!

The PX4 Storm is really HEAVY compared to the Kahr CM9 or Ruger LC9. I think it weighs more than a Glock.

“Don’t shoot lead boolets through a barrel with polygonal rifling.”

How come? Does it damage the barrel?

Hey, did you ever make it over to Ammo To Go? One of these days I’m going if I ever get time.

I just like it better. It seems to be well made. The trigger is very nice. I’ve been told their customer service is very good too. Hopefully I won’t need to use it.

After about 75-80 rounds, I did have the slide lock back with rounds still in the magazine for some reason. I might have limp-wristed it or got sloppy loading the mag. Not sure. They say to put at least 200 rounds through it to break it in.

Some how Polygonal rifling builds pressure with lead boolets.
Then glock doesnt support the entire cartridge on the feed ramp

Ive seen a few glocks blow

MY only concern with the Kahrs is that they were a bit bulky an d he trigger is long.

I like the Keltec too but I dont trust the mechanism

I should take a closer kook at the Kahr, but for me its the Ruger LC9

The smaller Kahrs are every bit as slim as the LC9 and just about the same weight - about 16 oz with an unloaded mag.

I really like my KelTec P11. The trigger sucks.

The LC9 trigger is much nicer.

One of the things tat drew me to the lc9 is that the trigger is so smooth.

Yeah its a long DA but it’s smooth

I prefer a crisp SA

This entire argument about whether you can carry in a federal building or not is horse shit

Down here I know people that do baptismals wearing glocks

If I cant carry, than I cant protect or defend

We just had an example of that this last week with those kids killed in Ohio.

And everybody poo-poos the .22LR as a “mouse gun” but this kid manages to kill 3 people with a Ruger semi, 10-round pistol.
