I had a problem when I first bought it. Sent it back to Kahr and they did a good tune up on it. Have had it about 7 years and put at least 300 round through it and no problems at all. The thing that impresses me the most is the trigger pull / action. Very smooth and usable.

Glock 19 9MM, and I sometimes pocket carry a Ruger LCP II .380. And yes--I rarely take the round out of the chamber in either. Only to clean them. If I ever had to draw it and fire, I really don't need to be spending the time to chamber one.

Various Glocks. Not much since in having a pistol that doesn't have a round in the chamber.

People who own guns should keep them locked up so children can never access them because they will find them.

TEACH your children about guns, and the consequences of touching your guns, and the differences between real guns and toys.
While you are teaching, be sure to teach them to shoot, and the proper way to handle guns.

Education works.


As for the OP, that is classified information in this house, available strictly on a "Need To Know" basis.
Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, who reads any internet forum has the required Need To Know.

I agree and taught my children the same way.

However in today's World the state laws call for locking guns up when children are involved. I prefer my way of educating and living under my house rules.

When you refer to "state laws", to enhance your credibility please give the state and the statute number.
It is easy to say "It is the law!", but if you state Montana Code Annotated 45-3-103 (MCA 45-3-103) your readers can look it up and know exactly what the law is.
AFAIK, The State of Montana has no child protection law. Actually, according to a google search, very few states do.
