Greeley, PA – In 2014, when Kahr Firearms Group purchased their 620-acre parcel of land for the new corporate headquarters, they knew that some of their new “neighbors” in the wooded acreage would be home to various species of wildlife. Much to their delight, a sow bear and her cubs would find all the comforts of home less than 400 yards from the corporate building.
For the third year since Kahr Firearms Group acquired the land, the Pennsylvania Game Commission has come out to check the vitals on the sow that they actually collared in 2006.
Last year, we reported that the sow was healthy and that she had given birth to 4 cubs. Sadly, those 4 cubs did not live, so this year, mama bear gave birth to two adorable cubs, now weighing in at 5 lbs.
Upon receiving permission from Kahr Firearms Group to enter the property and check on the status of the bears, the sow was located using a tracking device and was then darted with a sedative. While the Pennsylvania Game Commission officer collected blood, hair and vitals on the sow, the officer handed over the two cubs to Kahr personnel in order to keep them warm while outside of the den and away from their mom.
“Everyone loves a good bear story, and at Kahr, we feel like these bears add so much interest to this beautiful piece of property where we go to work every day” said Frank Harris, VP of Sales & Marketing. “Every year, a small group of us gather around the Pennsylvania Game Commission officer eager to once again see how our bear neighbor is doing and what offspring she gave birth to over the winter. Sadly, the two previous years she had lost her cubs due to her ailing health and also natural predators, but we were thrilled to see two more this year. We respect the animals of this forest and are so grateful that in spite of our busy office this has not disturbed her and she has decided to stay for the duration.”
The new Kahr Firearms Group corporate headquarters was finished in 2015 and the office in Pomona, NY was closed.

The 2015 event drew in over 150 shooters, and we really appreciated the opportunity to share our pistols with this talented group of shooters. This year, we decided to become a title sponsor so we could offer even more support to IDPA” said Frank Harris, VP of Sales & Marketing, Kahr Firearms Group. “We are proud to sponsor an event that brings together some of the top defensive pistol shooting enthusiasts in the world. This championship brings together civilians, law enforcement, federal agents, retired military, and also some international shooters. It is a fun event to attend and a great organization for us to support.”
The International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) has clubs throughout the USA and internationally. The focus of IDPA is to hone sport-based defensive handgun shooting skills and give shooters with mid-level to expert shooting skills an opportunity to compete against each other in various divisions for rankings.
“The 2016 match will improve over last year by adding even more props, movers, vehicles, challenging stage designs, and better Safety Officer incentives” stated IDPA Match Director, Cody Claxton. “With Kahr as our title sponsor, we will also have even more great guns to give away. It will be a truly fun event for everyone.”
“There will be 7 divisions in total at the match and shooters will participate in 12 defensive handgun stages of fire” stated Cole McCulloch, President Peacemaker National Training Center. “Each stage is based on real time defensive concealed carry scenarios involving moving targets, vehicles and even an airplane. The event is open free of charge to spectators. We are thrilled that Kahr Firearms Group is our title sponsor this year. Kahr pistols are ideal because they are highly concealable, practical and fit the Compact Carry Pistol and Back Up Gun Divisions now offered in IDPA.
