Kahr CW9?

I seen an article in a magazine about the Kahr CW9, and it looks like a neat piece for deep concealment or a BUG. Anyone here have any personal experience with one? How is the trigger? How does it shoot? What kind of holster do you carry it in? How bad is the recoil - can you shoot a whole box of ammo per range session without discomfort? I want to eventually get a smaller pistol for a CCW, but I am not yet sure what I want.

They look like nice thin carry pieces, never shot one... we have them in our store, but haven't sold a one!

Too many of our customers won't buy because the "moonies" own them.

Best,

Gerry

I have a E9 that I paid little for and was going to simply shoot once and sell. It has the steel frame and is still around.

IMHO, the Kahrs are super CCW guns. The trigger is sort of like a light Glock trigger, at least on the three or four I've handled and shot. Friend has the small .40 with a plastic frame - recoil is there, but (IMHO) not unpleasant.

Moonies = cult, followers of a Korean guy named somethingorother Moon. The founder/designer of Kahr is one of his sons, Justin Moon... and it was started up using Moonie money.

Sun Yung Moon is the founder- they give lots of money to P2a causes and other conservative causes- they are a well funded contributor to lots of conservative causes and the right has always grappled with the dicotomy between wanting their money and being ashamed to have them associated with their causes publicly.

Ah, well I dont know enough about them to be offended that they are connected with the company, so I guess I wont worry about it. Beisides, arent they made in America? I would feel better buying from any American made outfit than I would buying from the Chinease. But I would even buy guns from the Chinease; since I figure if they are going to sell them cheap I might as well get some; you cant have too many guns! And if the Chinease ever try to invade or something, it will be funny for them to be facing their own products. I guess I am just indiscriminate; I will buy guns from anyone, if they are a decent value!

Yeah, they're made in Taxachussetts. Not sure why a gun company would locate in such a horrible location...

Guess the Moonie thing was discussed.... they do steal millions every year and brainwash loads of "lost" souls....

I think Sun Yung Moon may still be in jail.... with his 100 Rolls Royces rusting in a field in Washingtron state......


But.....
Kahr hired the QC guy from Kimber and he has really done things for their manufacturing... even polished up the AutoOrdnance 1911!

How long has Kahr been in business? I never haerd of them until recently. And when did they buy out the auto ordnance name? Was A-O out of business before that and dormat, or were they still producing their 1911s and semi-1927s?

Kahr started as a CNC machining company in 1981, then went the Kahr route in 1986.

Auto-Ordnance Mfg and the name belonged to Numrich (Gun Parts Corp.) until recently. Kahr bought the name, intellectual property and manufacturing rights.

Hope this helps...
