    I'm a retired LEO with a total of 30 years, and 10 years in armed data center security for a medical IT company after that. For the vast majority of those years, I was forced to lug around an issued Glock G22. Glocks simply work, and my last duty Gen 3 G22 (given to me by the PD when I retired) is my nightstand gun. However, I'm just tired of the damned things, and I guess I'm looking for a little bling in my old age. I live in and frequent areas with very little crime, and my every day pocket carry is now either my CW380 or Seecamp LWS32. If I have to go to a dicey area, I'll strap on my S&W Shield 9mm. And if for some reason I have to travel to the hood in Kansas City, I've got my trusty G22 to take with me.

    Now that I've experienced Kahr with my new-to-me CW380, I'm thinking about selling the Shield and replacing it with either a K9 or MK9.

    You might also give some strong consideration to the little CM9. I keep one in my right hand jeans pocket at all times---very comforting.

    I'm old school. While I admit the new polymer frames are lighter, and do reduce felt recoil. I LOVE old school all metal firearms. Guess that's why I still carry a 1911 as my EDC.
    Anyway, I have a K9 and love it. I also have a PM9 and it's great for pocket carry. You can't go wrong with any Kahr.

    I carried a Kahr K9 as my back-up, strapped to my vest. Then I went to an agency that restricts on-duty carry to issued Glocks, but they do issue a G27 for back-up, so I try not to complain.

    PM9 is my on duty back up in a Renegade ankle holster. I've never found a 9mm as small that's also 100% reliable and as accurate as the PM9.

    It's also been my occasional off duty as well. After a recent incident off duty, however, I'm carrying a compact double stack and probably will on a permanent basis.

    I'm a Deputy Coroner and my carry gun will be the CT45 once I can get in to the range officer. AL

    I think the Glock 43x might get some attention in the back up weapon search for LEOs. Lighter than a Kahr a small or smaller and 10+1 capacity

    We have a few 43's already riding in vest and 1 or 2 of the Sig 365's now too.

    I saw my first 43X and 48 yesterday. I was surprised, and impressed, especially with the 43X. If I was still into SA striker fired I'd be sorely tempted to pick one up. As it is it looks like something that will give the P365 a run for its money.
