Based on my past experience with a K40, which was a nice shooting 40, it was still snappy compared to a 9mm or a 45. I personally like the 45, and enjoy shooting them. If you want the extra pop a 40 provides in a compact gun for sd I can see it....... but I wouldn't enjoy shooting it as a range gun, the 45 has a push when shooting as it's a lower pressure round.
I agree. I have a Kahr 40 as well as a 45. My 45 is what I carry and the 40 I keep around the house. I love the feel of my K40 in my hands and that is the primary reason I keep it. Plus, I happen to like that snappy feed back from my 40. She's just a bit heavy to carry except in a shoulder rig. When I take the 40 to the Range I only shoot about 10 round through her.

My K40 says: "I love you Daddy, I really do". My TP45 asks: "Did we get'em Daddy, did we get'em".

I don't understand the reasoning behind "I'm gonna shoot this gun a bunch before I clean it, to make sure it's a good, dependable gun".
My money is more valuable than that to me....so
Can someone please tell me exactly what this proves?
If it makes sense, I may try it...

Some folks believe that if it works when dirty, it will work when you "need" it. :phew:

For that matter, if it won't shoot 3-400 rounds without cleaning, it ain't no good for a defense tool. :startle:

Just my not so humble opinion, based on my experience and training :crazysmile:

Ok, now that makes sense. I cleaned my PM40 when new because I had no idea if it had some type of preservative grease in it.
After approx. 300 rounds I quit having to bump the slide home and she became trouble free. All the while clean and lube every 50
rounds. I attribute the now 100% reliability through normal fouling to a proper break-in. I believe 500 consecutive rounds is not out
of the question.

Most Glocks can be taken new from the box and put into service, but most Kahrs can not. Why? I think Kahr's are like high performance automobile engines, they must be broken in to allow the parts to seat properly. I love my Kahrs and I trust my Kahrs. Besides breaking-in a new Kahr is all part of the fun, the pride of ownership....plus I like that new Kahr smell....and so does Lynyrd Skynyrd

Ooh, that smell
Can't you smell that smell?
Ooh, that smell
The smell of death surrounds you, yeah
