In my opinion, some of the most user friendly of the double-action-only (DAO) pistols on today’s market are made by the Kahr Arms. I feel that the DAO trigger on Kahr pistols is one of the primary reasons for their popularity. The smooth, light and stage-free stroke is accomplished by means of a system in which
Way back in January 2009 I posted my first review of the Kahr CW4543 compact .45ACP pistol. I was – and continue to be – duly impressed with the weapon and this report/review is the result of having reached the milestone of firing 5,000 rounds through it. Just seven months ago I did a “past

Time goes by quickly. It has been many years now since Justin Moon debuted his first Kahr pistol, the K9. That first trim Kahr has spawned a long line of popular concealed carry sidearms. The K9 quickly proved that it was no dog. My first one gave me 25-yard groups as tight as 1.88 inches
I have a few guns; guns for home defense, concealed carry, for fun, for sporting competition, and for hunting. The Kahr CM9 definitely fits right into the concealed carry profile, however it does it in a size and caliber which is a little unusual. For my concealed carry guns, I have three main carry
