It just occurred to me that Kahr Arms is an exhibitor at the NRA Annual Convention, which I'll be going to this year. So I may get a chance to put my hands on the T9 and see how it feels after all.
Seems like a neat little 9mm that could do a lot of things well. Capacity isn't a big concern with me; I'm well past the phase in life where I see value in stuffing as many rounds as possible in the grip. If 8+1 isn't sufficient for any need then I'm likely in bigger trouble than a pistol could handle.
