    Default New carry

    I hated to do it, but I have parted ways with my MK9 after almost 9 years of carry. It was just becoming too difficult to rack the slide or disassemble for cleaning. If I ever would have had to clear a jam or any other issue under duress, it would have been difficult and slow and dangerous. I'll miss it..…………………………….At the same time I was contemplating saying adios, undenounced to me, the wifey wasn't happy with her mode of carry. She said that her firearm was getting a bit heavy and it was a bit large for the way she likes to carry. So, we made a deal. I let go of the MK9, she let's go of her firearm, which I was happy to take over as my new carry firearm, and she gets a new Ruger LCP II. Everybody happy...…………………………………..This is my new carry. Gave up a couple of rounds but I feel that it's plenty. I'll be using 38 +p or .357. Stout enough for me I'll have a report on the Elsie Pea after some range time...………………….

    Absolutely nothing wrong with that, I have the 22 version of that for my wife to play with, always planned to get the 357 as a running mate.

    No need to adios neither, owning a Kahr is not a prerequisite to being or remaining a part of our little family.

    Good choice. If the DA trigger pull gets to be too heavy, there are replacement spring kits available.

    I do not carry mine, but it has served as my car travel gun for 25+ years.

    And if you want an extra round, you could switch over to the six shot .327 Federal Magnum version....

    I don't feel under gunned with 38+P's. They have some nice loads out there. Running an 8# trigger spring, a 9# hammer spring, shims, polish. I had it set up for the wife. I've always loved the firearm. Really smooth trigger. I can get three fingers on the stock grip. I think that I got the better part of the deal. May change the grips, but any other grip changes the aim point of the firearm. Many people have changed, only to go back to the stock grips. I see you have the snakeskin inserts on your .327...……. Always liked them...……………………………….

    I have 5 kahrs accumulated over the years. Do not carry the .45 CW much, due to pain in my wrist when shooting it.
    I have 3 Ruger SP101's. I like the size of the gun and grips.
    38 Spl. 3" Bbl.,bought before the .357 mag was available. Do not see any need to move up to a .357 Mag.
    4" Bbl. .22 l.r.. Bought just before .22 l.r.. ammo became unobtainable. Now I have 1000's of rounds through it.
    Most recently .327 Fed mag. 4" bbl.
    All have been polished internally and shims added.
    Front sight of .38 Spl. painted red with nail polish. I like the trench sights.
    .327 Federal Mag was recently gifted with an aperture rear sight to help my ageing eye sight.
    I reload for centerfire revolvers.

    I recently got one of those Rugers. It called to me on a visit to local gun shop and ended up following me home.

    Love the grips on that one, don't hardly even look like a Ruger. Totally different look.

    Yeah, polished and shiny. Nice looking grips. That would be hard to pass up.
