I've been devouring everything I can find on the three above mentioned handguns and would like to know if any one has these and what are your likes/dislike about each one over the other. I am wanting this for CCw and have been carrying an Officers Model 45 for years and it is time to go to something much smaller and definitely lighter.
My main interest is in the PM45 due to small bady stature. (155lbs and 5'6")but after looking at the price especially vs the CW45 I may go that route. Only issue is it is slighty larger. And from what I can tell the P45 is similar in size to the CW. Is the slight size difference that big? I am in Northern MN and I have been all over trying to find any 45 cal. Kahr and they are next to impossble to find. Lots of 9mm's but no .45's. I really would like to find/look at one personally before purchasing one.
ANy help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
WW

I have a P45. I had mixed emotions on the gun at first. The trigger pull is lllllooooonnnnnggggg. Accurate double-taps take practice. I like the gun...a lot. I need to shoot it more to be perfectly comfortable with it. Personally, I do not think I would go any smaller for a .45, and I'm 5'10" 170 .lbs. Recoil is not bad, but if you're looking to go smaller, I would get a 9mm...or get the P380 when it's available.

I have the PM45 and had the CW45 til I sold it. Both can be easily concealed but I prefer the PM45. In my opinion, either would be a good choice.
