Review: Kahr Tungsten .380 Pistol

Some years ago, when the Kahr 9mm pistol was introduced, I obtained and tested an example as soon as possible. In doing so, I found a reliable handgun with excellent features. A smooth Double Action Only trigger, excellent machine work, and a truly compact frame made for a trend-setting pistol. The design was both fresh and intelligent.

SHOT 2014 — Kahr CT 40 and CT 45

Known for reliable, tough pocket pistols in a price range that reflects their quality, a Kahr goes bang every time. For self-defense, you can trust your life on a Kahr handgun. Now, with a saturated market of affordable and even cheap, small defensive handguns, Kahr Arms introduces two new full-sized pistols that it hopes will grab a portion of the market share.

Where can I Buy the Tiffany Blue Kahr Arms PM9?

A picture of a Kahr PM9 pistol with a Tiffany blue frame, packed in a famous Tiffany box with a Tiffany necklace draped over it is making the rounds on social media sites such as Facebook and Instagram. I have seen plenty of comments asking where to get the gun. I understand why. What woman’s smile doesn’t get brighter when handed that distinctive blue box? What’s even better than jewelry? A 9mm inside that rather large Tiffany box. I can see how this picture is going viral right before the holidays.

9mm Pocket Pistols Compared

These are three of the most popular 9mm pocket pistols sold last year. Their features vary considerably. The Kahr and GLOCK are both reliable and proven designs. However, the Shield is a fierce up-and-comer. Which one would fit your needs as a daily concealed carry weapon?

SHOT 2013: Kahr Arms CW380

Kahr Arms does pistols right and that is why every Kahr Arms handgun is indistinguishable—you can tell it’s a Kahr. They don’t mess with fancy aesthetics that make no difference to the functionality of their guns, they just make a gun that works reliably every time. Kahr’s new 2013 CW380 is no different. It looks just like the P380, but at a considerably lower price point.

SHOT 2013: Some Old Favorites Make a Cameo

There is something about old models of guns, especially military firearms. At the 2013 SHOT Show, Kahr, Auto-Ordnance and Magnum Research put out a few throwbacks I thought the world should see. The Thompson sported a familiar configuration. A 30-round stick magazine and that huge reciprocating charging handle. Unlike many modern semi- or fully-automatic sporting rifles, it’s fun to actually see the charging handle fly back toward you when the weapon cycles. It still strikes me as odd when I see old model firearms fresh from the factory. Most of the originals have very aged wood and no shortage of dents and scratches from years of improper storage or heavy use. Seeing clean and shiny new Thompson sub-machine guns decorating the walls on the side of a huge portrait of Winston Churchill holding a Thompson is just plain cool looking.
