    Default I did a forum search but cannot find any info on +P ammo

    I found a gift certificate in a kitchen drawer for 50 dollars from Santa Claus from Midway that hasn't been used yet. Figured might be a good time to experiment with factory ammo in my older (10 or so yrs old) PM 9. Most guns have the +p on the barrel somewhere if they can handle +P ammo. I don't see this anywhere.

    Speer has one for short barrel pistols "Speer Gold Dot Short Barrel Ammunition 9mm Luger +P 124 Grain Jacketed Hollow Point" but they are +P as are many of the currently available cartridges.

    I don't want to beat up my gun needlessly but would love to chronograph these and see what they will do.

    Anyone know about +P ammo?

    The +p ....yes or no battle is about as lively of a subject as "380...good enough for self defense?" to some people. Myself, and it is just MHO, I see no reason to shoot +p ammo in my firearms. Do I detest anyone that does...NO. I have shot some NATO rounds that was given to me in my CZ clone (TriStar C100) but the firearms are manufactured in a NATO plant in Turkey, and test fired with NATO ammo.

    Most Kahr's are not recommended for +P.

    This is off the Kahr website...... Q. Which ammunition is recommended for use with Kahr firearms?

    A. Kahr Arms does not endorse any particular brand of ammunition. However, not every brand of ammunition produces the same results. Please check the markings on the barrel hood of your firearm to determine the proper caliber. Kahr suggests a visit to a pistol range to test fire different brands of ammunition in the proper caliber. Kahr do not recommend steel case, reloads or un-jacketed ammunition.
    The Kahr pistol is rated to +P.

    +P is ok, +P+ is a no go.

    What got my interest was the bit about being for short barrels, like my PM 9. This detail might just be a marketing gimmick. 99% of my shooting is with reloads and I can tell a difference in the flame out the barrel on some guns. Usually faster burning powders compensates somewhat for a shorter barrel.
