Kahr PM9, first range session
Took the new pistol (along with two others I'd managed not to shoot yet! :ahhhhh:) to the range yesterday (the Kahr came in to my FFL on Friday night, had to work 10 hours Saturday).
I now see completely what all the "fuss" over this little pistol is about. I got the Black Diamond finished slide, and the night sights. This thing is very much (to me anyway) like a miniature Glock (with an improved trigger). It is everything my Glock 26 tried to be, but couldn't.
It is light, and quite small. It'll actually work in the front pocket of my jeans, in a Milt Sparks pocket holster. The accuracy, while not superb, is everything I need from a small light handgun. The trigger is very nice, with expected muzzle flip at firing, but nothing more than many other small handguns of substantial caliber.
I fired 120 rounds without a hitch. This was 100 rds. Winchester White Box, and 20 rounds of Gold Dot hollow points. The next range session will consist of at least 80 rounds of some type of hollow point (L.E. choices are my preference, either Gold Dots, Winchester Rangers or Federal HST). Kahr states the weapon requires a 200 rd. break in, and should not be considered reliable until then (next Sunday will see me at the range if my ammo gets here in time :yup:). Then, I'll have a good option in between my Kel Tec P3AT, and the Springfield Micro Compact .
