    Nice find, good weapon, must have been used, don't think you can buy new Kahrs in Mass. not on the approved list as far as I know unless this has changed.. Where are you going to shoot?
    Always carry, stay safe!

    It was used... but when I picked it up I knew it was the one I wanted, it felt right, and felt like it fit my hand perfectly I was instantly more comfortable with it than with any of the other guns I had handled.

    We might just shoot here, we have the land and a safe place to do so... or maybe at the Rod and Gun Club in Sturbridge .... if it doesn't get any warmer...

    I can't wait to handle it enough to feel comfortable carrying it... so that means I need to get out there and handle it!!

    I've carried a Kahr K9 for about 15 years. With many thousands of rounds through it, I know that I can trust it with my life and the lives of my family.

    You done good!

    I've noticed that as well. Wasn't it last week that a poster here bought an EMP for his first pistol? Thought that was odd...but it's probably just jealousy

    Good choice. Kahr makes a nice weapon. My dad carries a PM9 and I enjoy shooting it from time to time. Even thought about getting one myself...for now I will have to stick to my M&P, just fits me nicely!

    It may be a nice gun... .but it was a BIG investment for me... but knowing that I didnt have the cash to buy a couple of so-so guns I figured I would buy ONE that I liked and wouldn't have to replace it any time soon...

    Well, you would have done fine except...

    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!
