    A cap and eye protection help.

    I got to Hickam a few times in the early 80's... once diverted there on the way to Guam with a digital-upgraded bomb/nav sustem (DBNS) B-52D because of a typhoon in the way, and another to take a B-52D there for a static display... early 1982 before we switched to the H-model in August '82.
    We drove our Rent-a-wreck through a Magnum PI filming scene with the red Ferrari on the side of the road, too. I was a big fan, but not sure who we saw 'cause we didn't figure that out until we were passing the car and saw all of the people in the strip-mall parking lot on the other side of the road... cameras and stuff, too.
    After 9 years at Dyess AFB, and 3 years vacation from SAC in Germany, I spent my last two years and a few more at Loring AFB in Northern Maine. I like driving up to Canada to ski... cheap outings. So I've had my taste of snow and still get some in the mountains of SW Colorado at Christmas... usually... up in the air this year with the COVID.

    Trump will be secure by then where he belongs and all this covid stuff will miraculously go away and other than quite a bit of burning and looting and tearing up stuff by the pathetic losers a sense of normal will return.
    You should be ok for CO by December I hope.

    A vaccine would be nice. All of the casinos between here and there are suffering without our money!

    Interesting...were you a pilot in the AF? I was enlisted, and almost made it into a scene of Hawaii Five-O that was being filmed just outside the back gate at Hickam where I happened to be at the time...right at the end of runways 4R and 4L. I earned a commercial pilots license, instrument rating, multi-engine, CFI and CFII while there, and most of my instructors were current or retired AF officers.

Other than that, it's a sweet shooter...I can't believe how mild the recoil is for such a small, lightweight 45.
    It's been a while, but I finally got around to putting a few more rounds through the PM45. I recently found a 50-round box of Federal HST 230gr +P at a semi-reasonable price, so I decided to try 5 rounds yesterday. The recoil wasn't that bad, and the shells ejected exactly as they should...none even close to my mug. I followed that up with a few American Eagle FMJ, and got one round to my cap. So, I'm thinking the face pummeling is a combination of the gun not being broken in and anemic ammo. With the current ammo situation I don't want to burn up the HST for break in at $1.40 a pop, so maybe I'll find a face shield or ski mask to use for a while.

They're both fiber-optic and night sights, so you get the best of both worlds, and they pop out in total darkness and bright sunlight. I won't be firing it for a couple of days till I jump through the obligatory prepping hoops, but I'm a happy camper.

    I have absolutely no connection to Elk County Ammo & Arms in Saint Marys, PA, but they're good folks to deal with on Gunbroker...fast shipping, good communication and the best price I could find on this particular gun.
    I ordered the one that Elk County Ammo & Arms had left. It shipped today, and it's described as being factory new with night sights, with the matte stainless slide. They only used one stock picture in the ad, and did not call out the number of mags it comes with. I'll be very happy if it actually does have night sights, even if it happens to have only two mags. Got it for a great price so I was willing to gamble a bit, given that the stock photo illustration was not a gun with night sights. I've never done business with them before.

    Some feel that they need to practice “zen of the new Kahr” before a new pistol is sent on it’s maiden voyage. One should always inspect and clean off the oil and gunk. Go to the tech section Proper Prep of a NEW Kahr, written by the former typing instructor JOCKO. We all miss his wisdom.
