    My new Kahr it!

    Was actually looking for a lightweight .38 when I happened across a CM40 in my dealers case. I've always been interested in the Kahrs but sub-compacts were always too much $$$ for my $380 the CM40 took care of that problem!

    Took it out for the first time yesterday afternoon. Temps were in the low teens but this was the first day for temps to be up to double digits so I was anxious to go. I shot 135 gr. Hydra-Shok's, 155 gr. Hornady TAP, and 165 gr. Speer Gold Dot's. The only hiccup I experienced was the third shot of the first magazine. It was with one of the 135 gr. loads that didn't fully return to battery (about an 1/8 inch). After that is digested everything perfectly with empties thrown a good 10 ft. away.

    Accuracy was better than I expected as I knew it would take a bit to get used to the DAO trigger (my normal EDC is a 1911) but I was suprised how well I did. I guess years of shooting DA revolvers really helps. At 10 yards POI was pretty much spot on.

    After all the complaints I had read I was expected my hand to be sore from the grip but I experienced no problems of the kind. I think I have found my new summer/pocket carry piece.

    CM40 is a great little pocket cannon. Congrats on the new addition.
    Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.
