Took the Kahr PM 9 MM to the range today again to try out some different 9 MM Loads I have at home as well as some reloads.

I chrono'd some Hirtenberger 9mm 100 gr Truncated Soft Ponts, Federal 115Gr JHP's, Federal Premium Hydra-Shock 124 Gr JHP's and some Winchester Ranger STX 127Gr +P+ JHP's. Below are some photos of the groups at 10 yards and chrono data. The Ranger +P+ felt the hottest and gave a good jolt. You know you were shooting something but it was controllable non the less.

1101 fps
1192 1192

Cast Lead Round Nose with 4.5Grs. Unique ran around 1050 fps and shot pretty well in the Polygonal rifling of the Kahr PM 9 MM.:gah: Reminton 124Gr Golden Saber +P's ran about a same as the lead reloads.

Yes the GemTech Trinity in 9 MM is scary quiet on the S&W 422. Yes I said 9 mm. I got the Trinity for my Glock 17 but one day I saw on Gun Broker an adapter for the 422 so I bought one. Wow! It will also fit my 9 mm AR with a multi-mount. I prefere the 9 MM for sending the Jacks to meet Baby Jesus with a 95Gr .380 JHP loaded with 4 Gr of WW 231 in 9 MM cases. It wont cycle the Glock but I dont want it to. It will come out of the Glock around a 1050 fps and it really does the job on the Az Jacks. Check the link on You Tube for some of my other toys......God I love Arizona! Grew up in Dallas/Plano but here, we have better weather, drier, no Chiggers, fireants, few Mosquitoes.............
