    I have a P45 and have had problems with it...I need to stop procrastinating and send it back to Kahr to get looked at.

    I just looked at the PM45 at the local gun shop. seems like a nice gun, very small and very light for a 45. the price seemed a little outrageous, nearly $900.

    I'm scared of them. I'm not a fan of the .45 due to the higher recoil and noise factor and a .45 in that little thing would probably do me in if I had to use it. I carry the CW9 and I think the recoil in it is snappy with defensive loads. I can only imagine what the .45 is like.

    I own a P45 and carry it daily. It's got 850 rounds through it and has had no problems. It'll feed anything I load into the magazine. Felt recoil is that of a .45 ACP.....no different than the felt recoil of a G36 I used to own.

    Recoil-sensitive folks might want to wear an Uncle Mike's padded shooting glove if they're skittish about felt recoil.
    The Edge ... there's no honest way to describe it. The only ones who know where it is have gone over.

    I onced owned a P45 and it was 100% reliable. Never had a malfuction of any type while firing various brands of .45ACP ammo. I traded it in on a Glock 27 and regretted it as soon I got home. I couldn't see myself using the slush fund to buy the same exact gun after foolisly trading it off, so I waited for the PM45. I have owned the PM45 for 5 days now and I am very impressed with it. I put 500rds. of WWB 230gr. FMJ and 3 boxes of Speer GDHP Short Barrel 230gr. ammo thru it without one single glitch. I think its a keeper!


    born2die: I wouldn't buy the PM45 for $900 that is way TOO MUCH!!!

    I would consider buying one. Honestly, I think that a .40S&W has more recoil than a .45 ACP.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!

    I currently have and carry a CW9, tried the polymer 45 and 40 models before settling on the CW9. I helped a fellow range member break-in the 45 version and had shot another range buddy's 40. I found the 45's recoil to be excessive, and at the time I was carrying a 3.5 inch 1911 as my primary. The recoil of the 40 felt even more excessive than the 45. Double taps being the norm I dicovered that I could deliver two shots to the thoraic triangle with the 9mm faster and with more accuracy than I could with either 40 or 45 Kahrs. I have an assortment of 45 caliber 1911's, XD40's and S&W .357's and enjoy shooting them very much, but when I go out the 9mm Kahr rides on my hip.

    That is downright ridiculous, we sell them for a little over $500, don't know what area you are in but if you have one go to sportsman's warehouse and check on out.

    Folks i think we are discussing 2 different models the more common and larger Kahr p45 , and the newer , smaller pm45 . With Kahr pistols , like womens undies as you get more skimpy you get more expensive .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
    We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .

    I have a P45 and love it. It is my daily carry weapon. I did have to send it back to the factory right after purchase because of a bad slide release, but after they worked on it I have had no problems since! I just love the slimness of the gun and i can also get my whole hand on the grip.
