I went to a local gun store yesterday with the intent of buying a Kahr P40, as they were on "clearence", however, when I got there, they were sold out. Anyway, I drove to another store, and looked at all of the used / trade in stuff (my favorite counter) and spotted a KT P40, for $289. I thought "not bad, but I'm not overly interested at that price". Then, I looked at the gun to the left of it, another KT P40 (I was kind of shocked to see one P40, much less two), this one marked for $259. A much better price I thought, then I read the tag, included in this price was not one, but two mags (both with +1 extensions already installed) and a Don Hume JIT belt slide holster. Well, as they say, the rest is history. So I now have a P40 to keep my P11 and P3AT company. :lol:

Phred,
Don't know your shooting experience, but here is some unsolicited advice regarding the P-40.

1) Skip the 180 grain ammo. Use 165 grain max.
2) Buy a Hogue Handall Jr., or some type of grip sleeve so you can have the best grip possible. A good grip is everything with the P-40. It will kick quite a bit, and if you're not used to it you could have malfunctions because of limp wristing.
3) If the P-40 does not have a trigger shoe, order one from Kel-Tec.

Keep us posted regarding your shooting results and overall satisfaction with the P-40. I own two and wouldn't carry anything else.

Regards, Keys 8)

What Keys said, plus the eraser trigger stop. That helps with the tendency to jerk thru after the hammer release resulting in low POI.
