Went to the gun show here .......

And picked up a new hand cannon

Kahr Arms CW45


It is extremely small and conceals great. And no, it was not loaded during picture taking.

I have the CW40 and want a CW45 in a bad way. Let me know how your hand feels after the 200 round break in.

I have heard different things....some have said the .40 is actually worse for whatever reason . Several of the self defense rounds are not as hot.


I figure either way, after shooting hundreds of rounds out of my LCP, I can handle this one.

Congrats on the new pistola....I just read an article on them, and have been thinking about looking into one.

Post up how it handles...shoots....so on and so forth.

Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them.

Those are fun as hell to shoot! If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay?

Once I do get my CHL I don't think I want to carry my service XD, so I may need something a bit smaller.

your gun should always be loaded during picture taking.

It is a little unnerving looking at that big barrel unloaded as it is.

Made it to the range last night. The gun shot flawless. The kick is in my mind no worse than my Ruger p89 or my LCP. It really is all relative. I was able to shoot follow up shots one handed with fair accuracy so it passes that test for me. My hand was not tired or beat up at all. I was actually sad that I had to stop. For reference my mother came along wither her gun also, she put a magazine through the Kahr and loved it. She is 5'3 105lbs. I don't think she would want to put 200 rds through one, but she could certainly handle it in a defense situation without a problem at all. Food for thought for your wife, mother, or anyone with a smaller frame.


I shot 150 rounds. I could have shot another 150 but it was late. I had 1 ftf due to a bad primer, and one SP. All the residue near the end made it harder for the extractor to get the shells out, but it worked great.

Personally I felt the accuracy was fantastic. I am not a marksman by any means but my groups were tight and it went where I aimed, even further down range. The range I shoot at is a little dim in one area and the white sites showed up no problem.

This gun can be broken down by hand with no tools required (Line up the dots and pull out the slide lock lever, push forward and it's off). Cleaning was a snap as the slide comes off the rail and getting the barrel and spring apart was simple.


All in all I am extremely pleased with it and feel it was a very good investment considering the price.

I used WWB FMJ and Blazer to see if it would handle lower end stuff. This is going to make a great carry piece and I would recommend it.

If anyone is worried about recoil in a compact .45 Federal makes a 165 grain expanding fmj they call personal defense low recoil. About the same price as hydrashocks but a whole lot less recoil.
