[5 of 5 Stars!]The Bud’s purchasing process was, as usual, painless and fast. I have purchased several firearms from Bud’s over the past two years and have never been disappointed with their prices and service. The Kahr PM9 I received was a beautifully finished work of art. Before going to the range, I disassembled the pistol and lubricated it. The Kahr’s insides were machined and finished as beautifully as the pistol’s exterior. I finally got some time to go to the range and the little Kahr PM9 was truly impressive. I have been shooting for over 60 years, hunting, in competition, and for fun. Along the way, I have fired a lot of handguns and I can honestly say I have never had a small handgun shoot as well, out of the box, as the Kahr PM9. Kahr recommends firing at least 200 rounds to guarantee reliability, before carrying their guns for personal protection. At the range, I fired 300 rounds, with 100% reliability. That’s a LOT of magazine reloads, with 6-round mags (thank God for UpLula mag Loaders!). There were no problems whatsoever. I began the range session by firing several mags of FMJ rounds (Federal American Eagle 124 gr. and 115 g., Aguila 124 gr., and HPR 115 gr.). I then fired several brands of defensive hollow points, sometimes even mixing different brands in the same mags (Federal 124 gr. HydraShok, Hornady Critical Defense 115 gr. FTX, SigSauer V-Crown 115 gr., Speer Gold Dot 124 gr. and 147 gr., and Remington 124 gr. Ultimate Defense). The Kahr PM9 never missed a beat and accuracy was amazing, especially considering the size of the gun. Slow fire resulted in almost single-hole accuracy at 7 yards and cloverleaf shot groups at 10 yards, with several of the loads. The trigger, great in the beginning, got even better as the range session progressed. Trigger reset was extremely short and double taps were incredibly easy and fast. I don’t own a shot timer, but I believe double taps were as fast or faster than those I can do with my full-size Walther PPQ M2 9mm pistol. Felt recoil was negligible. I was so impressed with this pistol that I just ordered a Kahr MK9 for my shooting/concealed carry collection.

[5 of 5 Stars!]Purchased my Kahr PM9 from Bud's on 12/4 and picked it up from my FFL on 12/12. Typical good service from Bud's, especially during the Christmas season. Went to the range today (12/15) and put the recommended 200 rounds through the PM9 for break-in purposes. I used a mix of 115 grain fmj, 124 grain fmj, 115 grain Hornady Critical Defense and 124 grain Speer Gold Dots. I am happy to report not one single FTF or FTE. It ran flawlessly. The gun is quite comfortable to shoot despite the bear paws that I have for hands. Muzzle flip is manageable. I shot from about 10 yards and was able to get good groups. I can say the gun is certainly more accurate than I am. I'll need more practice as I don't have much range time with pocket sized pistols. Speaking of pockets, this little gem of a weapon slips very nicely into a coat pocket or large pant pocket.... including my DiSantis Nemesis holster. Just what I was needing for the times I do not want to go IWB with my Glock 30S or 23. This Kahr is a high quality gun. It's very slim, light in weight and handy. So far I am very pleased. If you're looking for a pocket sized pistol that is chambered in 9mm, then you should have a look at the Kahr PM9.Show More Reviews...
