I'm thinking "Kahr folks" are gonna like the Kahr's, and "Ruger folks" are gonna' prefer the Ruger offerings...
And the Rohrbaugh folks are gonna laugh at what the peon's are buying...
I've considered a Kahr of one type or another for decades, but for one reason or another just never had one call my name loud enough.
On the contrary, I've owned Rugers for roughly 40+ years and never had a bad one.
Between my wife and myself we have three LCP's, and all three functioned perfectly right out of the box.
I have 6-7 9MM pistols, and I was not in the market for another one, but my buddy bought an LC9 and let me shoot it, and I'm telling ya, it's a sweet little pistol.
So, I bought one and it has been perfect right out of the cheap white cardboard box, and the accuracy, at self defense distance, is amazingly good..
I don't know how good the little Kahr is... I'm guessing very good. But for MY needs in a self defense weapon,and that is, absolute reliability, self defense accurate, and reasonable compact size for cc the Ruger LCP (@ $365.00 no less) is perfect.
(The LC9 is actually MORE than self defense accurate.. At 7 yards I can shoot a group than can be covered with 50c piece, and that's as good as my HK P2000sk can do for me..)
And my 4 decade history of owning Rugers, all excellent, made buying the diminutive Ruger LC9 a very, very easy decision..
Just glad we are offered choices, and I'm sure those folks who buy the Kahr will be well served...
Just no more served than I am with the LC9..
No offense, just conversin'..
