OK I had to do it. Was inventorying my collection and I realized that I do not have a PPK in any of my gun safes. My collection isn't that large but a PPK should be in everyones.
Went to the gun store looking for a PPK and they didn't have one, so I was browsing and started handling the Kahr's.
Boom there it was, the TP-9. Such a sweet well balanced 4" barrel Kahr. I had recommended Kahr K-9 when they first came out and my dad has sworn it to me upon his death, so I never really thought about buying one cause I knew some day I'd have one.
BUT (ahhh dont we love the buts) this one was brand stinking new and the gun manager explained that his company would no longer carry this particular model and he had reduced the price that morning.
Sticker shock left my wallet empty. Brand new in the box out the door for $400.
Nice story and all is well, until the day comes when the woman I married happens to spot the new piece of iron (and plastic) on my hip and question about its purchase.
Oh well, its been a few years and it really is such a sweet weapon. To bad the PPK will have to wait a while.
(Ohhh ya before ya'al yell about pictures, be patient its on lay away till payday and when i get it, you'll get pics).
Now I have to think holsters. Seems like the folks at Sparks will be getting a couple hundred of my hard earned tax payers dollars for another Summer Special and Mag pouch.
Later all, have another mission to pack for. I took 6 days for the per diem (gee got a new gun to pay for).
