Well, I finally bought my first Kahr. It's a used K40. The gun doesn't look like it's been fired at all. There is no dirt or grime in the gun which leads me to believe it is either unfired or well taken care of. There are some wear marks on the barrel but that can be explaned away by being played around with and not shot.
I decided to pimp out the gun. I stippled the front and back strap and polished the controls (trigger, slide stop, and magazine release) and grip screws. How did I do?
Boy this gun sure is heavy for being all steel. It weighs more than my G-19 when loaded. The nice thing is that the recoil should be nice and soft.
I decided to get a few extras for it. For one thing the gun came with only one magazine. I figured I needed at least two more just to carry it. So I ordered two more from Bud's Guns and a double magazine pouch. Then I turned attention to the sights. I'm getting a set of Crimson Trace laser grips for it so I figured that I had the night angle covered. So I bought a set of the fiber optic sights for it for the day (green front, red rear). I couldn't see investing in tritium night sights if these sights were being used for the daylight. The holster part was covered when I ordered a Crossbreed Mini Tuck IWB.
Overall it is a really nice gun and fits well in my hand. It has just enough length in the foregrip area to hold all of my fingers. I lubed the gun using the pictures in the lube thread.
Now as for loads to use in it. I have on order 500 rounds of Federal HST 180 grain in .40 caliber. Is this a good load? Forgive me as I'm new to the whole .40 caliber thing and am only going from what I read in the Ammo Oracle. I plan on breaking it in with FMJs and the last couple of rounds will be the HSTs to check for function.
