    My new Kahr PM45

    I picked up my new Kahr PM45 tonight. I plan to build both pocket and OWB holsters for this pistol. I hope to survive 200 rounds of break in practice this weekend
    I know the PM45 is a newer Kahr model and was wondering if anyone else has purchased this model, what they like or don't like about it?

    Subscribed. Really interested in this gun. I went with the PM9 for everyday carry but was a toss up between that and the PM45.

    There is one absolutely huge flaw in the PM45.



    I don't have one yet.

    I got a chance to squeeze off five rounds when I saw someone I sort of knew at the range with one. I absolutely love it. I'm not sure I could shoot 200 rounds in one sitting. I will subscribe and await your results.

    If you can locate a Handall Jr in town, get it before your sesstion. It will help A LOT in the confort department.

    I added one to my PM9 and regret not doing it sooner. Front finger groove is perfect and covering the rear strap keeps the gun from canabalizing your hand.

    I have a pm9 that I really like. If yours is as good a gun as mine you will be very happy.

    I went to the range last Friday night with my new Kahr
    PM45 and I built pocket holster over the weekend.
    At the range, I fired 150 rounds of blazer brass 230 grain ball, some Winchester white box ball ammo and 25 rounds of 230 grain Speer Gold Dot Hollowpoints. The little .45 digested them all. I did attempt to fire some older reloads. I had a failure to feed with a 185 grain semi wadcutter lead bullet. That one wouldnt feed and I had one heck of a time ejecting the cartridge. It looks to be an improper crimp. I had one jacketed hollowpoint reload dent the primer but not fire. All in all I'm really happy with this Kahr.
