One of our fans found out just how tough the Kahr PM40 is, when his pistol was stolen and thrown from a vehicle during a high speed pursuit! The result? It is a bit bruised, but his PM40 is still ready to run should the need arise for reliable, accurate self-defense. Check out the pictures, and drop by www.kahr.com to see our entire line of super tough, polymer framed compact handguns!
To whom it may concern,
I am writing to you to thank Kahr for making such durable handguns as well as manufacturing in the USA! I have been the proud owner of a Kahr PM40 that I purchased for myself for my 25th birthday (2006).
Unfortunately my firearm was stolen from my vehicle after a string of auto burglaries in the summer of 2021. I was recently informed by Texas DPS that my pistol was recovered when it was thrown from a stolen vehicle during a high speed pursuit. Not only was my pistol thrown from a moving vehicle but it was thrown over a freeway overpass and landed 40+ feet below on the concrete.
Much to my surprise after receiving the firearm back from DPS the damage was minimal and it appears to be fully functional other than a broken magazine and a few scuffs.
Please note, the rubber band grip was installed by the thief and will be removed promptly!
Thank you again,
Andrew from Texas
