The Kahr P9 is a semi-automatic small-frame pistol chambered in 9mm. Kahr is one of the premier manufacturers of pocket and sub-compact pistols and have lines for popular calibers such as .45, .40, .380 and, of course, 9mm. The P9 is just one line of small-framed pistols chambered in 9mm. Other Kahn nine mil sub-compacts include PM9 and MK9.

Features on the P9 include a locked-breech system where the backwards force is absorbed by the slide rather than the frame. Another feature that helps resist wear are the stainless steel inserts lining the inside of the frame. The black polymer frame has a textured grip and is very lightweight. It weighs a sliver more than a pound loaded at 1.01 pounds. The overall width is 0.90″, so it’ll be easier to conceal. It has a double-action only trigger that sets off the action with a longer pull. It doesn’t have a safety switch, but it’s less likely something other than a trigger finger will pull a double-action trigger all the way back. It also has a passive striker block, which is an internal safety that prevents the gun from accidentally discharging if it is dropped. And it comes with adjustable three-dot sights.

Optional features include tritium night sights (add about $100) and it is available in a stainless steel or blackened stainless steel finish (add about $50).

Kahr recommends the P9 for concealed carry.
