Wow!

Thanks for all the information guys. I'm going to see what Kahr will do about the shipping. I'm not sure if it's still under warranty though. Next time I'll just take it to a dealer.

Didn't think about that, I knew it wasn't law, just a carrier requirement. Story I've heard as the reason is that over night shipments are handled by fewer people, thus reducing chances of it being stolen. Doesn't say much about their opinion of their employees or their ability to control them.

Well, my gun is under warranty and I was just informed that Kahr will not cover my shipping. That really pisses me off.

Sorry to hear it. I have heard of some manufacturers sending extra mags, etc. with the repaired pistol, I suppose to help make up for the customer's freight cost. Will be interesting to hear if Kahr does something like that.

This could be a consideration, I guess, when selecting a firearm. I believe Colt, Springfield & Hi-Point pay freight both ways & I'm sure others do also. But, who buys a pistol with the idea they are going to be sending it in for repairs?

Yeah, no kidding. If they dropped a couple of extra mags in there that would be more than fine with me. Next time I'll have uncle ship my guns for me. I don't mind paying USPS Priority. I do mind paying over $70 though.

I did tell them how upset I was about the situation. Especially considering I've talked with other Kahr owners where the shipping was paid by Kahr. And also the fact that I paid a lot of money for this gun and it hasn't worked right since day one. I had less problems with my Kel Tec I sold to get the PM9. In fact, it never had any problems.
