Ruger LC9 Vs Kahr CM9 - TheFireArmGuy




What do you think about this video?

aaronistoledo: The LC9 also has a key lock for the slide. I myself prefer having safeties. I hate the mag safety, HATE IT! Sometimes things happen and a mag can drop and cost a life. I bought one LC9 and have 2 Kahrs placed in my home (bad neighborhood). I must say aside from the mag safety I find them about equal.

Bethany Calabrese: Thanks for the video!! Is the recoil about the same on both?

bigwalt2990: Just got my new CM9 in today....the freaking trigger squeaks. You field strip it and you can see the trigger bar riding against some little piece of wiring looking stuff. Why am I the only one with a squeaky trigger? NO ONE EVER MENTIONS it when they review the Kahr. Smooth smooth smooth is all I hear. So I buy one, and it vibrates as it squeaks. Not to mention the blemishes in the stainless, and all the slivers of polymer I had to scrub off the frame inside and out... Prety much had to finish the manufacturing on the friggin thing. This gun better be the shooter of all shooters, that's all I can say. (sorry, had to vent)

smajoria3: There's a loaded chamber indicator on the right side of the Khar! You've probably figured that out already. Lol

frankie2234: I hope the LC9 works better than the LCP....what a piece of junk, that I own. It has been back to the factory, and the moment I got it back, it still jamming rounds into the side of the chamber. Makes a heck of a paperweight!!!! I can't trust Ruger, because they had a chance to fix it and failed. Bye, bye Ruger.

Dennis Carraher: I have owned both. I gave my sister the Kahr. I found a Galloway kit for my Ruger and now I am very happy with it. My twin brother owns a Kahr. I like both, for me the Ruger, for the rest of my family, the Kahr.

glockman1983: Here here. I don't know how many gun vids I've seen on here, you sir have made the best "vs" video I've ever seen. Practical and to the point. Exceptional video sir.

Joseph Simeone: * did I mention the Kahr's great trigger.

TheFireArmGuy: @rasey077 My buddy loves the LC9 too and shares many of your thoughts about it. The Kahr CM9 is mine and I love that too. I think that both are great and its a matter of preference either way

Tabitha Langford: I think the answer is obvious....its a safety feature. People have been known to shoot themselfs or others because they think the gun isn't loaded just because the mag is out.Some gun company's have even been sued over it (such as jennings). Although i think its common sense to eject the round in the chamber alot people don't or just forget.

TheFireArmGuy: Yes there are so many good choices. I would say get a couple. I sure have a bunch

TheBrandin1234: does anybody know if you buy a handgun from a private sale at 18 in florida???

ny2001us: You sir, did not address the full context of my comment.

32MrDV: Same here FireArmGuy I also shoot low with LC9. I'm on my way to the range to master the trigger on the LC9. It's one of my primary carry pieces, so I must master it before I can consider it saving a life.

Adam Fort: The CM9 has a 7 and 8 round mag available from Kahr website. The LC9 is not the victor in that department. My gun dealer has the CM9 new for 389 so it is also cheaper. Price varies greatly by time, state, and who you know.

Dave Van Halen: Hey nice videos, I just discovered you, thank you for what you are doing. I do have a question, I recently purchased the Ruger LCP 380, I carry it everyday, it fits very nice in my back pocket, however in the back of my mind, i keep questioning myself, if my LCP 380 will have the stopping power if a situation came about??? I will apperciate any feed back from you or anybody that might know.. thank you.. dave_vanbrocklin@ymail.com

MrRampro: Great video thank you

TheFireArmGuy: Much appreciated

gmcjetpilot: WHY is a magazine safety a big deal? IT IS NO FACTOR IN REAL LIFE... and it might save your life or from shooting your gun accidentally. You can make up all kinds of scenarios up in your head that will never happen, where you are the hero and save the day all because there was no magazine safety.... It just is not a factor.

Justin derrell: bud gun shop currently has the cm9 for 369.00

bigbrolla: Many would say advantage Kahr when it comes to the safety features. The LC9 is a lawyer designed gun w/ way too many external safety features. A long double action trigger is fine for revolvers...why not a semi-auto? I love Ruger (own/have owned several of their pistols) but I sold my LC9, mostly bc of the way too long, gritty trigger. Looking at getting either a Kahr CM9 or a Sig P938 (or maybe a Shield or XDs...so many good choices out there now).

coinfinder1: MY second gun or bug is also a Ruger the litlle peas shooter lcp 380 with some ammo that mushroom out 3/4 of a inch! Thats in a pocket holster. That little gun is very good at up close range.

TheFireArmGuy: Ruger are all lawyered up

TheFireArmGuy: Good point and I can see how the mag disconnect is a safety feature

TheFireArmGuy: Yes crimson trace makes a great laser that fits on the trigger gaurd

MrBuckeye63: Trust and reliability is determined after 500 rds of carry ammo thru each gun ...not your personal preference

TheFireArmGuy: Kahr is not $100 better it is $200 better than the LC9. Now I know some guys like the LC9 and Im a Ruger fan (my vids are proof) however in this comparison Kahr for the win

TheFireArmGuy: It shouldnt be more expensive. Its the same platform just smaller

Joshua Combs: what is your opinion on the Beretta Nano? Im trying to decide between the nano and the cm9.

TheFireArmGuy: Man what a great comment and I appreciate you sharing it. I agree if one is between the two to save the extra bucks and get the Kahr

TheFireArmGuy: I agree Bryce. I felt the same way with the LCP. I dont get that same cheap trigger feeling with the SR models

TheFireArmGuy: You make a great point - thanks

Happy Cattle: I like 'em both.

TheFireArmGuy: The safety is in the shooter and not the gun. I dont mind a longer trigger pull but thats a real lot

TheFireArmGuy: @harpoclarx That is my thought too

TheFireArmGuy: Still worth mentioning

TheFireArmGuy: Overpriced - maybe in some cases but not the CM/CW series. Reliability issues - I havent seen it. Kahrs are excellent

Manson Prepper: LC9 has too much of that California compliant bullcrap Kahr arms rocks

TheFireArmGuy: Everyone is biased in some form or another

TheFireArmGuy: Thats true but they make some great guns. I have a mini 14 and love it

Joseph Simeone: I just picked up a cm9 for$ 380 total OTD $423 I can not find a LC9 for under $399 so I say the price is equal but quality Kahr hands down. Safety is a opinion not a fact,the best safety is the shooters trigger finger off the trigger. If you like the Ruger California safety features go for it. The LCP is safe but not allowed in Cali. so ruger decided not to make 2 styles of LC9 and doom us all to the LC9 love it or leave it based on the crazy amount of safeties built in to it.

gstrader73: I love my CM9...great comparison!

robalan57: The PM9 is more polished than the CM9 and the PM also has a match grade barrell. I bought the PM9 as main carry and CM9 as backup. I am sure I wouldn't know the difference between them in a fight. You can save a few bucks by going with the CM9. Your friends may think you are cooler if you get the PM9. You can be super cool if you get them both. :-)

LVen21: Great job. I've been going back and forth on which I want to purchase for an EDC pistol. We've got a lot of gun shops in my area (Atlanta) and one has the Kahr for $358.99 brand new. My favorite shop has it for $399 and will probably buy from them because I like to support the shop I frequent the most. Thanks for helping with the decision. I'm buying the CM9.

TheFireArmGuy: Thanks for checking it out bud. Ive carried the Kahr for two years and love it

jes: @TheFireArmGuy I am still waiting to get my hands on a Kahr. They look like great guns and everytime I see one at a show or in a shop I have a hard time putting it down. I may end up trading my LCP off for their .380 pocket rocket. I still have yet to hear a single bad thing about Kahr except that the slide release has "pointy edges"...lol...apparently people are getting boo-boos on their wittle fingers....

Doug Hansen: Nicely done, sir.

TheFireArmGuy: I had the LCP for about three yrs then traded it for an XD

ny2001us: The Kahr does have a loaded round feature, that the ejector is flush to slide when empty and protruded when there is a round in the chamber

TheFireArmGuy: My fav Ruger is my mini 14 tactical. I have a couple vids show it off. I am looking for a Ruger revolver as well. Possibly a SP100 or a security six
