    I bought the CW Kahr 45. I was very impressed with the slim width and ability to conceal it. I shot 50 rounds at a 15 yd KD range. I didn't have a problem with it's accuracy. I had a big problem with it's design in regards to the grip. It feels awesome in my hand. It's slim design allows me to easily grab it firmly. After about 10 shots the web of my shooting hand was sore. After 50 rounds I was wondering how the heck KAHR missed that problem when designing it. The grip on the fingers are great. The sharp contour in the web of the hand area is a killer. I need to be more diligent researching my weapons. It would probably be fine in a 32,380,9mm, but not the big boys.

    I don't know what happened with Mr. Sellens Kahr 45,but I have a Kahr CW9 that is almost 4 years old.I was target shooting with it using reloads.One shot was a hot one and it blew the ejector out of the gun.I called the dealer that I bought it from and he called Kahr and told them what happend. The dealer called me back and told me to bring the gun back that Kahr was sending a new ejector and Kahr would pay him to fix the gun at no charge to me.This happend late in the spring of 2011.I guess you could say this is standing behind your products .I also have a Kahr CW45 and I love both guns,very easy to conseal.
