USA – -(  In a time when the President wants to make American great again we’ve all rejoiced at what seems to be a lull in the war on our right to defend ourselves.

This inspired a re-evaluation of the American handgun market and I was a bit saddened to realize just how few choices we have that are actually made in America.

There are a few companies that still manufacture in the US, but those that equate to the Wal-Mart of gun companies didn’t interest me and so I kept looking.

What I found was Kahr and the CW 9 from their Value Series.

With an MSRP of $449 and a street price about $100 less Kahr has found a way to make a quality firearm in the United States and still have it be both quality and affordable. Cost reduction is accomplished by reducing machining on the slide, conventional rifling, and using a polymer front sight and MIM slide stop lever.

Other that it remains the same quality from Kahr that fans have come to expect.

The Kahr CW9 Pistol is a Double-Action Only, but the trigger feels more like it is made of ball bearings as it glides through its stroke into the firing position. Perhaps part of that feel comes from the broad metal trigger shoe which feels remarkably comfortable after spending too much time handling guns with trigger-mounted safeties. Comfortable is probably the best single-word description I can offer for the CWP hand gun.

Beyond the trigger shoe is the reassuring double action providing both safety and readiness while carrying, and the 7+1 capacity proved just the right size for my larger hands to remain slim for carry, yet provide enough handle to be comfortable on the range.
