Just joined up here, seems like a great forum! I picked up a PM45 a few weeks ago for concealed carry (pic included of course). I've been through quite a few pistols for carry duty over the years and have to say the Kahrs are tough to beat from a weight/size standpoint. I'm in Texas so it's not easy to conceal due to the heat. I have a couple of PM9's as well but it sure feels better knowing you have some thumpers available. I've put 350 rounds through it so far and it's been perfect with Federal and PMC ball, Speer Gold Dots and Hydrashoks. I did buy some reloads at the range on my 2'nd trip and it did not like those at all. Anyone have a recommendation on 185 grain vs. 230 grain ammo for a short barrel pistol like this? I use Speer GD's pretty much exclusively in all my carry guns but I'm curious about penetration/expansion for the lighter vs. heavier weight ammo, though with the .45 it may not matter too much.
