Purchased used for $350, enticed by Kahr brand (reliability), size (concealability), and caliber (9mm--bigger than .380). After solving my mag release issue, and over-looking my personal preference for single action or two-stage triggers, this is a fine handgun that accurately places a bullet every time you pull the trigger.

Had to send back to Kahr to repair the magazine release, which was causing the mags to fall out during firing. Had it back in a few weeks. Now it shoots perfectly and is very accurate. Recoil is no problem and, although the breakdown pin is rather tight, it breaks down and cleans easily.

As I'm sure everybody knows, this gun has no external safety, but it has has a very smooth, somewhat light, but very long trigger pull with no indication of when it's going to go bang. I, personally, don't like that at all but I guess many do. I MUST ADVISE AGAINST CARRYING THIS GUN IN A POCKET WITH ROUND CHAMBERED--the long trigger pull doesn't do it. IMO, any gun in a pocket HAS to have an external safety. No external safety = get a good holster!

The sights are similar to a straight-8--block in the rear and dot up front, which work fine for its intended purpose. The CW, of course, is a cheaper version of the P9, and I don't care for the pinned front sight.
