An effective, light-recoil defensive round – but don’t count on a light, defensive load not going through sheet rock and hitting a neighbor or family member on the other side. “You are responsible for every bullet that comes out of your gun.”
George Hill has an excellent and thorough review of this gun over at Human Events.
The one thing that has always bothered me about concealed carry guns is that they are all about compromise. You give up power for smaller size. You give up accuracy for a shorter barrel. You give up everything you really want in a handgun for the ability to have it on you all the time. Maybe I’ve grown cranky. Maybe I’m just fed up. Whatever the source of my feelings, I’m tired of compromises
Kahr Arms introduces new compact pistol series.
From Tactical Wire:
The CM Series takes the value priced features from Kahr’s CW series (3.6″ barrel 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP models) and incorporates these features into a smaller 3″ barrel package. The CM9093 has the same external dimensions as the PM9093, which make it ideal for concealed carry by licensed civilians and law enforcement personnel.
Comment by Watcher3223:
ANY handgun round won’t provide protection if:
1. You are a bad shot.
2. You subscribe to the notion of one shot kills with handgun loads.
3. You don’t have a gun.
It’s been said that the purpose of a pistol is to fight your way back to a rifle. That said, a 9x19mm is effective for its intended purpose.
While you want to get as large a caliber as you can handle, the truth is you do not want your body invaded by a bullet of ANY kind. Even a well-placed shot with .22LR can kill your target.
“I was shot point blank in the chest Friday the 13th of July 2007, the bullet entered near the front edge of my left armpit about 4 in. to the left of my left nipple and about 2 in above it.
The bullet traveled through my left lung destroying about 30% of it then the bullet nicked my aorta and heart sack it then ricocheted of of the inside front of my ribcage.
It then tore through my diaphragm leaving a 3 in by 2 in hole in my diaphragm. From there it tore through my stomach destroying 3 acid ducts and causing me to lose about 20% of my stomach.
From there the bullet nicked my liver and spleen then it traveled through the back third of my spinal cord canal from about the middle of T11 on my left side to about the middle of T12 where it exited my spinal canal and traveled about another inch to my right parallel with the skin of my back and came to rest.
The bullet was a Speer Gold dot 9mm that was fired from a Glock model 17.
This was all caused by a fellow soldier who was being stupid and playing with his personal handgun.
Now I have a few rules that I make damn sure are followed around me…
#1 When a firearm is cleared everyone in the room checks it not just the handler.
#2 Do not put a magazine in your weapon without alerting others around you. (physically stick your finger in the chamber area and make sure that there is not possibly a round, this is used as a double check. first look then feel.)
#3 Pay attention to barrel awareness, flagging (accidently or purposefully crossing someone with your muzzle) around me will defiantly get someone a “boot camp ass chewing” and possibly shot.
#4 No matter how trained and experienced your with weapons you can still screw up. (I find that sometimes people with more experience can be at a higher risk of messing up due to becoming lax with their firearms handling.
#5 Always keep yourself and others around in check about safety and have them keep you and each other in check as well. (If someone corrects you listen to them don’t just blow them off and possibly get mad about being corrected, listen to them.)”
