Kahr came found their groove in the 1990s with the rise of concealed carry reform in the US. This was on the heels of the Federal Assault Weapon Ban which limited magazine capacity to 10 rounds or less. A firearm designed from the ground-up as a concealed carry piece had a huge advantage over the rest of the industry that had to play “catch up”.
My search for a concealed carry gun continued and I ended up with a Kahr P40. The P40 is another 40 caliber pistol but is thinner than the Glock, just like I wanted. It has a short, 3.6 inch barrel but comes with a grip that is long enough to wrap your entire hand around. Many sub-compact pistols are chopped short and you have to curl your pinky finger underneath the handle when gripping the gun. Not the case with this stainless steel bad boy.
I already own the Glock 23 and was thinking about purchasing the P40 for a little more effective CCW. I've recently read some pretty disturbing reviews on the Kahr P-series and now I'm wondering. Would love to get some feed back on this.
