I made an impulse buy today, sort of. Let me back up. I used to own a Kahr MK9 that I loved. Accurate little pistol and a pleasure to carry. Then, after 450 rounds of flawless performance, I had a malfunction where the empty shell casing got stuck backwards in the ejection port. The open end of the casing was wedged on the extractor. It took some effort to clear it. This spooked me and I sold the gun to buy a S&W 340PD.
I was explaining this to a friend of mine. I told him how much I miss the Kahr and wanted to get another one, but was afraid of the reliability issue. He is a firearms instructor and said that it might have been bad ammo and I should give Kahr another chance.
So I was thinking about my 340 and how it has the internal lock that I am not crazy about. I have two other j frames, so do I really need to keep this gun? If I had extra cash I would have kept it.
Anyway, today I traded my 340PD for a new Kahr P40. It feels so nice in my hand. I cannot wait to shoot it. It will take me awhile to trust Kahr again. It took me about a year to break down and get a Kahr again. I'm going to put A LOT of rounds down range to make sure she is reliable. More than the 200 that Kahr recommends.
I'll post pics in the future.
