I’m a fan of service-size pistols, and for the past few years my “go-to” carry sidearm has been a Springfield Armory XD 9mm. It’s accurate, reliable…
That’s no so much an issue in the winter under heavy clothes, but in North Carolina’s jungle-like summer heat and humidity, it simply isn’t easy to carry covertly when wearing a tee shirt and shorts. As a result, it spent far more time in the gun safe that it did on my side where it belonged.
I’ll have another one someday, but I traded it this evening for something a bit smaller, and lighter.
It isn’t one of the sexier (and far more pricey) high-end Kahrs, but the entry-level CM-9 will perform the role I required of it just as well as a higher priced pistol, and I won’t mind as much if it gets dinged up during regular use.
