Kahr PM9 9mm is smaller and lighter and thinner, more powerful, more controlable than a .38 snub. Many millions have pocket ccw'd such a .38 snub over the decades, ample proof that it's easy to always have such a 6", 15 oz 9mm with you. So why settle for a 21-24 oz, 6.3"-6.7" PPK or Makarov, hmm? Only reason is being too CHEAP to spend the extra $400 over the cost of the Mak. Since that $400 is the same as 4000 rds of cf practice ammo, HOW good is such a lame going to BE with his ccw pistol, hmm? Not very, that's how much.
