Self defense
I had a lot of failures with my Kahr P40, couldn't really resolve them and came to the conclusion that the 40 round was too much for the engineering of that gun. It was also uncomfortable to practice with, though any small gun is. I'm carrying a Taurus PT 709 now and I really like it (mixed reviews but mine has been flawless) but I'm thinking of trying out one of the Kimber Solo models or a S&W Shield.
