I've spent the last few years following all these new small 380s that have come out. Looked at the Kel-Tec but was not impressed. Thought about a Ruger LCP but could not find one for a reasonable price. Intrigued by the Taurus TCP. Then I heard Kahr was going to make a 380. I waited and glad I did. I plan on purchasing one very soon. I have read every article published on the Kahr. It is clearly the best of the breed and clear step up from the others.
