My 2 cents
I for one would recommend the Kahr CM9. Internally I believe identical to PM9, but cheaper due to less machine work, not so elegant engraving, only one 6 round mag and maybe something else just can't remember for sure. That being said I picked one up last week at local gun show for $405 out the door with tax included and I am VERY impressed with the accuracy of the 3 inch barrel and the lack of recoil which seems to me to be less than my PT 738 .380 from Taurus. Size is almost identical to said Taurus. Pictures will reflect. I could have easily qualified for my carry permit with gun no doubt, and am happy to have more firepower than the .380. Excellent answer from Kahr to make an accurate affordable 9mm pocket gun!
