I've had the P380 on order now since January 21 from (what I think) is the largest privately owned gun / range store in Minnesota. I'm curious if other people have been waiting this long. My dealer claims I'm the only one on his list and he has over 150 on order. I would certainly think that considering his size, he'd be able to get a few of them in. Along the same lines, has anyone heard how many Kahr has been shipping out? What would you folks consider a reasonable waiting time for a new gun like this from Kahr? Summer is almost here and I'm going to start wearing lighter weight clothes pretty soon so I'm obviously getting anxious for the pocket gun.

Thanks

Jack

The latest I heard from (Kahr last week) was that they are waiting on slides to be completed. My guess - and don't hold me to this - is that guns will start appearing on retailer shelves in some quantity within the next 60-90 days. Maybe sooner. Plenty of time to order that perfect holster. :)

Finally I'll pick up my P380 this Thursday even though it's been at my dealers a month, damn 200 mile drive each way.

I live between Roanoke and Lynchburg, VA and have had a P380 on order for a month. The dealer assures me I'll get his first one, but, no word yet.

Hell I called all over Indiana to two big dealers and they are eithe lying to me or they have never gotten any. I foundmine n the internet from a fella who wanted to sell his and buy a sig. $550 delivered to my door, It shouldbe here Friday--hopefully.

theya re had to find, as kahr is not making one ever 52 seconds likethe ruger lcp are coming out the door. Takes alittle longer to make a kahr..

Finally, Picked up my P380 Thursday and now I can't wait to shoot it. The Ruger LCP is a neat pistol but the P380 feels so much better. I now have my new summer gun. My dealer was suppose to get 10 a month but has been getting only 5, and has a long waiting list.

I've been waiting a little over a month and my dealer says he gets the first one from two distributors, once they get them. (Hopefully soon...)

Not only feels better, it is better.

still waiting. Perhaps my dealer has no priority. But three distributors tell him they haven't seen one. So if that's the truth, what's the holdup??
Any speculation why the P380's are so rare? Is Kahr short of ammo to test fire? Or are they doing a mod on the slide stop problem we've heard about? Or are they working on other guns that have higher profit?
Any of you gurus that know who to call at Kahr, have they said anything new and exciting?
Sure, there are a couple on gunbroker but I'm not going that route. Ordinary dealers ought to get some consideration too, not just the big shot online shops that then put what they get on gunbroker.
I bet the Taurus TCP 380 will be out soon and if it shows up at my dealer before the Kahr, I might reconsider the whole idea.

my guess gramps is that kahr is so far behind in all gun production right now that the P380 is coming out slower than they maybe want. They only employee less than 80 people, so kahr by most gun companies is very small. they make a ton of different models and probably alot of thier stuff is even vendored out to be produced. I have had on B. O. for over 2 months now extra magazine springs and magazine followers for my P380, Just wanted to have um around but so far, they are paid for but "no cigar".

I could never find one here in Indiana and still have not come across one fromthe two "big" dealers that I tried to work with even.

Who knows that tauruse might be a real sleeper to and be a great gun. I am anxious to see one myself, especially in the titaniumslide. but like the kahr, it willbe scarce to find sititng aorund also. taurus also makes a ton of guns for the market and dealer show cases are very bare compared to a year ago. When I go into gander mt (ug!!) and see guns spaced out about a foot apart that tells me something and when I see the entire top shelf with nothing but those god awful butt ugly PINK semi's by I think taurus,t hat also tells me something.

I had the sporting goods manager at our local wal mart tell me that about 2 months ago a gander mt employee came in and bought every round of semi ammo he had 380, 32, 40, 45 9mm. He said he didn't know it untl it was to late as an employee did the selling as he was off that day. believe it or not that is his story...

Come to Indiana gramps and you can shootmy P380 tillthe cows come home but bring ur own 380 ammo, there ain't none around here, and my 700 plus rondsa re iced down next to my Buds....

I walked into Mary's pistols here in Tacoma in June this year looking for a backup/summer gun and asked her if she had kel-tec or kahr, she bought out a 380 model of each my eyes were drawn to the kahr, love at first sight! She said she had just got two in and also had the ruger lcp and would I like to see that. By this time I had my credit card out along with my CCL and would have left her store that afternoon with the p380 except the FBI puts a hold on all my firearm purchases so they can have a agent fire it and get a ballistic signature of each gun I buy (F)oolish (B)unch of (I)diots.

Ordered mine way back in January. No luck yet.

I've tried calling Kahr a few times. The SE rep hasn't returned my call. And today I tried to call "Heather" at Kahr who's supposed to know something and she didn't return my call either.

Does anybody know what's going on there? A report somewhere says Seecamp has stopped production on 380's due to ammo shortage. Has Kahr stopped production also?

If anybody has a hot line to Kahr and can find out something, I'd sure like to know.

Maybe the place where u ordered it is not getting any or maybe not teling you when they do and peddling it some where elose. We have read a few reort son here of shooters just walking in a gun shop and walla, there in the case sits a P380. I think kahr is shipping, not alot, Have seen nonein Indiana anywhere but I know they are comingin. the two dealers I tried to buy offof, one the largest in Indiand claims they have enver gotten any, I know better to. theyare taking care of thieri special customers first. I was lukcy tofind a shooter who wante dto sellhis P380 to buy a sig or other wise I would not have one either gramps.

i seriously doubt if seecamp stopped produection due to ammo shortage, theyd on't make many anyhow, so u don't see those sitting around at all. I wold doubt if Kahr is slowing productiondue to ammo shortage, as the demand for the P380 as u know is still very high. Hang loose gramps, maybe when you get yours it willbe the new dlc finsih slide with nite sites already on it.
