Kahr’s products are extremely popular among the concealed carry crowd for a number of reasons, most having to do with reliability, design, and of course the ease of carry.
Their weapons are also really snappy to shoot, with top notch sights, magazines, and an offset barrel that better aligns the shooter’s hand with the bore.
Since concealed carry isn’t our primary concern here, we went for the CW9 over the lighter and more compact CM9 version. One reason for this is simply that larger guns are easier and more comfortable to shoot for most. Still, this is by no means a large handgun. The CW9’s low magazine capacity will attest to that, 8+1 for a 9mm. Retail: $399
