Guns & Ammo Review - Meet the Mini-Kahr
Guns & Ammo Magazine said:The advantages of a small gun are real and can't be jeered away by making snide comments about little calibers. A lot of us are proud to be carrying "mouseguns," because even a mousegun is better than depending solely on harsh words.
Kahr has been making ever more compact 9mm, .40 and .45 pistols for a number of years now. It has a solid reputation in the gun-toting circles I frequent, which includes non-sworn and LEO groups in some of the cities with the highest shooting statistics in the nation. The Kahr users I know all went to the brand for some simple reasons: compactness, ease of use and durability. When it comes t a compact 9mm, .40 or .45, it's hard to beat a Kahr. The ease-of-use issue is simple: They are all DAO pistols. And all the Kahrs I've ever seen have worked flawlessly, for me and other owners.
Which is why a Kahr in .380 is exciting. After all, who doesn't want a durable, stainless, compact .380 that can literally slide into a pocket? Kahr sent me a pair of the new model (SN 9 and SN 22) off the line to handle and test. Before I had time to do more than open the boxes and fondle the pistols I had phone calls and emails telling me to forward No. 9 to our stellar photographer for his love-shot work. However, No. 22 was intended to be shot as much as I could.
