It's only been about 3 years of carry for my Kahr CW40. I had carried a Firestar m40 on and off for at least a decade. When I got really serious about carrying ALL OF THE TIME, I mean every single second. I went and traded my trusty old Firstar for the Kahr. They but hold the same amount of ammo, but the Kahr is so light and I really like the double action on the trigger. I did a little work to it and it pulls at around 3.5lbs
I get too many new guns to stick with the same old carry gun. I buy a new commander and put it thru its paces and once it passes all the tests, I will carry it for a while. Then I switch around. Sometimes, I carry a full size 1911, just depends what I feel like that day. P.S. I have carried a firearm every day for 30 plus years and have gone from revolvers to plastic and back again but have decided to settle on a 1911 for the last 7-8 years. I will never carry anything else besides maybe for a bug gun.
I swept my carpet in front of the reloading bench since this photo, don't laugh, but this is my beloved TRP I mentioned above. Once I spend the time to work up some good loads or find some HP ammo this thing likes better it will go back on my hip. The glock is just easier to maintain out and about up on the mountain in wet weather but this is my favorite 1911. I sold my first one like an idiot, had a nice S.A. loaded that was my first 1911
