    Just curious if any of you own or know anything about these?? I have held one and liked the feel. My question is the reliability of these. I currently own a SIG P239 in 9mm and want one more gun in the same caliber. They are both in the same class as far as size because I have small hands. This way I will have a black Nitron finish and a stainless pistol.:big grin: Any help would be appreciated.

    My father had one when they first came out (i was still underage :o ), i remember all sorts of hype about how compact and lightweight they were. i shot it frequently and recall it being a nice handling, reliable weapon. A family friend still carries his off duty when the mood strikes him and has never reported a problem either.

    The subcompact Glocks and more recently the Kahr sorta pushed the 3913 out of favor, but if you prefer a slim grip and don't need *the* smallest thing out there, it'd be a good buy if you can find a like new one for $350 or less.

    For Kahr, i'd personally like to try out a PM9, which is as small as they come.

    I carry a P9 & have a K9 Elite as well. I carry the P9 & have a bit of trigger work done to it. If you get a Kahr make sure you get the Elite trigger. It comes standard on the Elite models as well as all of ther poly guns. I was thinking you might like the K9 if you don't carry on a daily basis. The K9s are not that heavy but the poly series guns are so light you forget you have them on. The K9 will also have a bit less bite when shooting.

    My father used to carry one a few years ago. I shot it several times and found it to be a reliable and more than combat accurate. It is easily concealable but the grip is a bit too short for my big hands.

    My buddy has one that I've shot a few times. Not bad, but not my 5906tsw :dunno:

    I second the KAHR brand weapon. After I get my XD40, I'm getting a compact .40 from KAHR (don't know which model yet, haven't done my research) for my back up carry
