Both should work well, but which one fits your hand best? Glock take down is little bit simpler, but even that is not big deal. I personally prefer that Glock. The M&P series I haven't been able to get comfortable with.

small 40's are a "load" to shoot well.

Both Good...buy the one that fits your hand the best...try and shoot both before you decide.

I prefer the Glock...I have a 23

As the others have said, It is gonna be what feels better in your hand. Personally I like the xd's better than either you mentioned, but out of those two I like the glock.

Glock 27. fit makes world of difference as stated above. However, I did hold a KAHR 40 that was really thin the other day. Have no test knowledge of the KAHR though. Glock goes Bang everytime plus you can carry it with any 40 cal mag they make in it. I carry a 27.

Yep, buy something that feels good. The Glock and M&P are both really good choices. I have had a Kahr P40 for 7 or 8 years I would guess and it is my go to carry gun. It has been very reliable, though it has needed magazine springs once. For what its worth, it has stayed loaded pretty much the entire time I have owned it. I would say it is more susceptible to "limp wristing" than a Glock 27 (and probably needs magazine springs replaced more often, which is weird since it is a single stack), but the only time this has been an issue is when others have shot it. I rounded a few corners on it to make it fit me better. It is pretty rude when shot, but manageable. I prefer the Glock or M&P triggers to the Kahr, but the fact of the matter is I prefer the "thinness" of the Kahr more. It is light and carries very well. It is down on capacity (6+1), but that is still one or two more than a compact revolver and it can be reloaded easier than a revolver as well.

I have seriously considered picking up one of the smaller Kahr PM models for an even smaller carry package. If I go that route though, I will probably drop down to 9mm. I really like the .40, but with less grip to hold on to, I think there would be a definite control advantage to the 9, plus my wife will need to be able to shoot it comfortably.

For me I choose the M&P Compact over a compact Glock because it feel better in my hand than a Glock does. That is just me. If you can, try both and see which one you like.

Neither if they have a plastic receiver. Wouldn't have one in the house.

Kahr makes both polymer and steel frame models. The model I have is polymer, but the K and MK series are steel. Steel is a little more expensive and a little more weight.

What do you have against the polymer receivers, Mr. Bowser, if I may ask? Is it just a preference or something from personal expereience? I am a big fan of steel frames myself, but some of the polymer choices out there are pretty well established and proven, to say the least.
