Tony in Kansas City sends in today’s Q&A voicemail, which is a follow-up to his first voicemail a couple months ago. He was looking for a pistol for concealed carry and IDPA BUG division. Ben and I suggested that he look at the S&W Shield, Springfield XDs, and maybe another pistol or two. Tony went to the range and rented a few guns, and then the Range Officer let him try his Kahr PM9.
His question is: are double action only pistols competitive?
BUG division isn’t super competitive. It’s a place for people to come shoot the guns that they actually carry, but it’s not the place that people generally build competition guns. I say if you like the PM9 best, go for it, and shoot it in IDPA, no problem.
