    If you purchase from a Davidson dealer ( http://www.galleryofguns.com/# ) you don't have to lose money on a lemon. You may lose the cost of test ammo but not of the gun.

    I owned a PM40 for about a year... Had a few issues in the first 200 rounds (asd predicted), then perfect since, w/ hollowpoints and ball.

    My suggestion... Quit bitchin and sell the damn gun. Every manufacturer makes lemons... Some more frequently than others.

    If I send a gun back TWICE to the manufacturer (never have), I'm not going to ask to have it repaired. I'm going to have it REPLACED. New serial number. New gun... If you talk to the right people, and ask the questions the right way, I'm sure you will get satisfaction. If you speak to ANY company, the way they have been addressed in your email you are going to get NOTHING. Gun business, ANY business...

    My 2 cents...

    Keep the XD and the Smith, sell the Kahr, and buy a Kel-Tec, or three...

    Yeah I know... it's NOT a 40!!! Go ask the idiots in jail who have been shot by more than one gun... They won't have a preference for a smaller caliber...

    I've been tempted to buy the 9mm version of that little polymer Kahr, but I've been told many times that it's not a fun gun to shoot at all.

    I may eventually step up from the 32 Keltec to the 380 Keltec I suppose.

    I like my PM9! Shoot a Ruger LCP then shoot the PM9 right behind it. The PM9 shoots like a dream.

    I have heard that the PM40 kicks like a mule. That being said my wife handles her PM9 just fine, I would say it actually has less felt recoil than her little Bersa T380cc did.

    Interesting...

    The Keltec 380 isn't that much fun to shoot after a few rounds - it just seemed to reason the PM9 would be pretty bad.

    My PM9 feels fairly heavy while handling it compared to the LCP, 14 oz compared to 9.5 respectively.

    I added a Hogue grip sleeve to the PM9 with finger indentions and that also seemed to help a lot.

    Depending on clothing, I alternate between my PM9 and PX4SC for this time of year and am comfortable with both.

    While I wouldn't call it a range gun, My wife can run through 200+ rounds a session without getting sore. IMO the trigger difference between the KT and the PM is worth the extra $. I just can't get use to that long heavy trigger

    I always thought that the Kahr trigger was like the Keltecs. I've held the Kahrs before, but never tried to fire one before.

    Being your 3rd post and all... um.. It's harder to "complain" when you test your carry gun before you count on it to defend your life. I personally do not carry a pistol for defense that I have not personally fired at least 600-800 rounds thru with no failures. That's why I carry my Glock 32. ( I also carry my Kimber Ultra Raptor II that has about 1400 rounds thru it with about 2 FTF's, most likely attributable to user error when I first got it). For the most part though, I carry the Glock, because it works, and I've used it enough to know it works.

    I'd also like to mention that I own a Kahr 40 Elite 98 that has a metric shart ton of rounds thru it with narry a hickup.(2) I'd trust the Kahr as much as the Glock but with one exception... the Glock holds 14 rounds of .357 Sig, and the Kahr only holds 7 rounds of .40.

    Also... in case no one has ever told you... ALL CAPS IS RUDE!!!! Welcome to the forums by the way.

    I respect a forum that does'nt censor this type of content.

    Some people have had bad experiences with Kahr's as well as KelTecs as well as Taurus's as well as you name it.

    Heck,some H&K's are getting a history for breaking their trigger bars.

    I just read where a guy bought a brand new Sig and was having no end to the feeding problems with it.

    The key is to send the message and move on.

    Just because I get a bad copy does'nt mean that they are all bad.

    I read alot of people that absolutely loves their Kahr's as well as other brands.
