Chambered for the potent .45 ACP, the Kahr P45 and its variations, the PT45 and CW45, are very good striker-fired handguns. The Kahr P45 has a polymer frame that is textured all around the grip for a firm hold that grips well even in the damp Pacific Northwest, where my co-worker Thomas McKiddie makes his home. He has a Kahr P45 and he raves about it.
Having been retired for some years, my needs in a carry gun, which I’m authorized to pack under my retirement status, have changed significantly, but I decided early on that if I were going to bother carrying something, that it would be of sufficient chambering to get the job done if called upon. Okay, I confess, I have packed a few .32s and .380s (maybe even a .25 once or twice) in my time and do share a real affinity for the titanium-cylindered, aluminum-framed Centennial from Smith & Wesson; but most days find me packing a Kahr P9 in 9mm.
Well, if you’re Justin Moon of Kahr Arms you design a .45-caliber semiauto pistol that’s based upon your highly successful 9x19mm and .40 S&W semiautos, and you call it the P45.
