    I went through 3 or 4 grips on the K6s and none of them had the right geometry to me. Sold it.
    I know what you mean about the hammer, the Taurus 856 is a great revolver, but the hammer spurless model just looks dorky to me. I'm not as opposed to it on other models, especially the J-frames with shrouded hammers.

    It's a fantastic revolver, but the geometry just doesn't fit my hand.
    What's wrong with your hand?

    All this is boiling down to some great and free marketing research for Kahr Co. to develope and introduce to the world the best damn DASA revolver ever imagined.

    It must be S&W shaped.

    It's not about YOU. It's about getting the new gun buyer who's shopping for a concealed carry pistol. If someone has to choose between a pistol that holds 6+1 vs a pistol that holds 10+1 in a comparably sized package, they're choosing the latter. Especially when the choice is well-known makers vs a relative unknown.

    Before I bought my P9, I carried a SIG P239 and a S&W 3913. I gambled on Kahr because the P9 was unique at the time. It was the only single stack, striker fired polymer 9mm on the market.

    Now the single-stack is less preferable. More ammo in a comparably sized package is better.

    The Kahr division isn't exactly printing money at this point. If a revolver came, one would think it would be under the Magnum Research brand. That being said, I don't see that relatively small company gambling on a revolver. Developing a new DA J frame type revolver would be massively expensive.

    Why? The Kimber K6 exists. The Airweight J frame .357 Magnums exist. The LCR exists. And now that CZ has bought Colt and has buckets of money, I expect to see a new Detective Special or Cobra introduced.

    But when it comes to a carry .357, lighter is better---and Smith has that dialed in with the Scandium and Titanium models.

    Well, I know you meant to say "hammers" instead of "triggers", but it is a thing, and carrying a revolver with spurred hammer concealed has a long history of snagged draws and holes worn in cover garments. Cowboys you refer to knew nothing better...if they even bothered to conceal.

    Nothing shootable comes out of a pocket or even a concealed holster quicker than a bobbed hammer revolver. And carrying for defense, the preferred operation is DAO. It's why us old timers migrated so easily to the Kahr. In fact, I go back & forth between Kahr and a DAO snub revolver with no difficulty whatsoever. Unless you're Ed McGivern, you won't equal split times thumbing a hammer.

    Kahr should focus on bringing their excellent trigger and thin slide into the current competitive market with more rounds and modern sight options. But they should do so, IMO, without dropping the current standard models.
