I owned a K9 in the 90's. Liked it a lot. It was a companion to my Browning Hi-Power. I transitioned out of 9mm and moved into .38/.357 for a couple decades. Just recently transitioned back to 9mm and found the P365. Sized like the K9 but with the capacity of the Hi-Power.
No brainer for me.
The K9 was very solid, easily concealable, and digested +P easily. Same for the P365 - w/ nearly 2x the capacity.

I like the all-steel pistols, but the polymer pistolas were problematic. The PM9 ran fine, but the PM40 showed the flaws in the pistol. After Kahr rebuilt and then replaced my PM40, I sold it and went with the Glock 27. Thicker, but never had a problem with it - and I shot it a LOT.

I really like the PM9 and have had mine for many years. It’s been reliable, though I don’t have a huge round count through it. I have no problems carrying larger pistols, so my PM9 has not been carried much. I like the trigger feel, smooth. And, it’s still a great choice for just dropping in a pocket for a short walk, where there is no expectation of trouble.
Prior to Shield and P365, the PM9 was a top choice for CCW when wearing a suit or tailored clothing - easy to conceal well in such attire. Being able to wear casual clothing for many years, larger pistols have been no problem for me.
I agree with others here that when the Shield came out, appeal of the Kahrs began to fade.
And now, with the P365, I can’t see any reason to choose the PM9 over the P365. That said, I really don’t want to let loose of my PM9... I will still keep it around, just ‘because’, I guess. Good little pocket gun - if you have use for a pocket gun.
