"If I walk in the woods, I feel much more comfortable carrying a gun. What if you meet a bear in the woods that's going to attack you? You shoot it."
I found it interesting. Some of it personal preference, some issues not really important. Seemed like he liked most of the things on the Kahr better (trigger, controls, barrel), slides close, frame finish and grip angle not a biggy, guide rod and spring assembly I don't like the plastic of the Kahr either. The slide rails and hammer were the two big things for him. The hammer is just a preference thing. I would prefer metal slide rails, but my Ruger P95 has poly slide rails and that thing is a tank of a gun. So who knows...buy the one you like best and fire it enough to be confident in it.
I looked at his collection and he has some nice stuff!!!!!!!! My stuff isn't near that nice. I don't buy fancy purdy, although I appreciate it when I see it.

No Guns, No Safety, No Peace.
Guns are like sex and air...its no big deal until YOU can't get any.
why is everyone bashing?
i thought i read some where that even if all the plastic rails on a kahr were gone the gun would still cycle without any issue. can someone confirm that?
There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.
Well, if the flood comes, he'll be prepared.
Sometimes ya'll are like a bunch of Betty's sitting around the table drinking tea and gossiping about the neighbors.

Well, I certainly can't say he uses boring colors for his wall colors.
Well made comparison video. Thanks for sharing but I wouldn't agree with much... but it'a all opinion and preferences anyway. I recall the first time time I picked up a Sig P290, expecting Kahr like weight and was surprised at the heaviness of the Sig. My thought was "OMG, this thing feels like my HK!". I had high hopes for the Sig because I prefer a hammer to a striker, but the weight was too much negative. For the same weight I can carry a Kahr TP9.
