    Just put my first Kahr on Layaway

    I just put my first Kahr on layaway this week. It is a K4043 Stainless .40 S&W.

    I have owned Glock, S&W Glock Clones, Taurus, Star Microstar, and currently own a Llama .45.

    The .45 is a little too large for me to CC, so I went to buy a smaller bore. I was going to buy a bersa or a kel tec, but wasn't happy with the smaller calibers.

    Then I saw this little Kahr .40 and fell in love.

    I can't wait to get her out.

    I'm betting you are going to love it. I think that the little steel framed Kahrs are great. I wanted a K9 for years, and when I finally got one, I wasn't disappointed. I won't be letting mine go.

    Just shot my MK9 for the first time today and I am in love! Great shooting little pistol, this is going to be a great summer time carry gun.

    I'm sure the K40 is going to be just as nice. Congrats

    Be sure to follow the break-in period with the Kahr's as they are mdae very tight. After break-in, I have had no issues with my PM9.

    The owners manual on mine said fire 200 rounds to make it 100% reliable. I put the first 75 rounds through mine today with no hiccups.

    Sorry, been away for a few days. As timc indicates, the owners manual states 200 rounds. I shot WWB and Blazer Brass through mine for the break in period and if I remember correctly only incurred two to three fail to feed issues. I have between, 300 - 400 rounds through it now and have not had any issues since break-in.
