    Me too. Looking for a new CCW.

    I have a SA XD-9 that I love so thinking about the XDS9. Looking at the Kahr PM9/CW9 and also the P380/CW380. Also thinking about the Sig P938.\

    Any comments on any of these would be appreciated!

    That new Glock would probably be a good choice then

    Never been a Glock fan.. Don't fit me well. I do like the LC9 as a carry piece. My wife and I both own one.. Wonderful gun in a pocket sleeve. Shot the Kahr and it is nice, but for the money would go LC9. Would never go 380. Ammo costs too much and as they always say, " friends never let friends carry a 380" Am really interested in a Sig small frame .45, but that will have to wait till I pay off the tranny rebuild.

    I have a Kahr PM9 (which I really like), Glock 26 and Kel-Tec PF9. However, by far, my favorite carry gun is my Rohrbaugh R9 which is a true pocket 9mm. It is an extremely solid pistol and reminds me of the early Seecamps.

    I've shot the LC9 and it kicks like a mule. While I don't mind that and may end up going that way, wanted to ask around and test some other guns.. I have another glock but liked the 42 b/c it was a little bigger so might absorb some of the kick. On the contrary, if it's the same size as a pocket 9, why not get a 9! Next year they'll probably release the pocket 9 everyone was hoping the 42 would be.

    I've been intrigued by the Kahr's for awhile and may go that route...but I LOVE my Springfield Armory 9. It's too big to CCW (in my opinion) so I want to check out the XD subcompact 9.

    So many choices, I may just have to get them all! lol

    I have the LC9 and my son in law has the Kahr. Both are fine. I am not worried about the kick as CCW. I hope I never have to use it but I expect if I do I will never remember the kick.
    What if all we have today is what we gave thanks for yesterday?

    I totally agree Gary. None of the pocket pistols are really fun to shoot.

    I have the Springfield XDS.45 and like it very much. It is very nice to shoot does not have a lot of muzzle whip in my opinion. I carry it in a Crossbreed holster which I would recommend. I have not shot the XDS.9 but I would assume it would be a good choice.

    I have the Glock 42 on order for my wife but have not gott'n it yet.
