Kahr or the Glock is fine. I am a believer in keeping it simple. If you have Glocks or Kahrs go with the same brand. Everything is in the same place , triggers are the same , sights etc. if it the only carry gun she will ever have pick the best one that she shoots the best. Never " feels the best" as the Golfing great teacher Jimmy Ballard said " Feelings will fool ya"

I'm a woman and I have both. I have been a die hard Glock fan for the last 12 years but since I got my Kahr CM9, I haven't carried my Glock much. It is my night stand gun however.
If she is going to carry it, I would say the Kahr definitely. If it is mostly going to be used for home defense and the range then I would say Glock.

I'd advise her to go with the one she shoots better and make comfort a secondary issue.

If she shoots the Kahr as good as the G26, it's a go. If she shoots the 26 better, I'd advise her to go with the Glock.

Either way it will be a sound choice.

The Kahr CW9, CM9, PM9, M&P shield are all better than the G26 in my experience. I have had about 20 women to the range to shoot these (and others) head to head and none of them picked the G26. That said, it is personal preference and there will be things she may like that trend to the emotional side so you may or may not understand her choice.

All 3 of those are big turn off for me, With trigger being the deal breaker.

Absolutely I have had both sold the piece of junk G26 that kept throwing brass in my face, even after sending it back to Glock. I am not hating on Glocks because I still have a Gen 2 19 that runs beautifully. I also still have the CW9 with at least 500rds thru it and it keeps on going. Check out the Kahr forum for reliable information on the Kahr.

I just showed this post to my girlfriend and she said that your girlfriend really needs to shoot an LCR before she makes up her mind. I bought her an LC9 as a present but she hated the trigger and we ended up trading it plus some to get her LCR but shes happy... finally

The Kahrs are interesting...my LEO tradein K9 I can hit a gnat, wonderful groupings. My CW9 throws lead all over the place for me. Difference between steel and polymer and type of grip, so it will take a little bit of experience to get that sorted.

To their credit, Glocks are very consistant with the way they place lead across the product line. I shoot the 21, 19, 17 and 23 all about the same.

My wife is very petite and has tiny hands. She tried every double stack 9 mm available and fell in love with how the Springfield Armory XD9SC fit her hands. That is my first recommendation any time small hands are an issue.

Well I'm a guy, but I have a G26 which I've carried almost daily since I started carrying a gun. I would never give it up. Just recently I acquired a Kahr PM9 to supplement the Glock. Unfortunately I cannot report as to my opinion on the Kahr as I have not got to shoot it yet. It looks and feels like a nice weapon. I'm hoping to get to shoot this week.

I would be more interested in the S&W Shield if they offered it without the manual safety. I don't know why they don't since the other M&P guns can be had without it.

My wife also likes the Beretta Nano. No safety and a very compact design.

My wife has trouble racking my CM9 and will not carry it although she shoots it well. She say my G19 is to thick for her hand, so no love there. The Shield that I got for her seems to be the one that she is absolutly comfortable with. Fits her hand well, has no trouble racking the slide or taking it down to clean and shoots it very well.

Sounds like a good choice.

I've never shot a Shield, but her observations of the other two is correct
