It'd be cool for pocket carry, but fuck paying over $900 for one. And forget about sites.
I've considered one a lot but after reading their forums and seeing that it suffered from all the same reliability problems that small autos like keltecs do...I decide against it.
I've handled them every year at shot show. Very cool, and for a super sub compact it's got a pretty decent trigger.
I'd strongly advise reading the rohrbaugh forum yourself before purchasing then. There seem to be a great many that need massaging.
I was under the impressions these worked well too. It just goes to show you, tiny guns have problems because of their size constraints, it isn't based solely on workmanship.
Exactly. I trained with a guy that tried to love his for a long time. Never could get it to shoot reliably.
My dad's Kahr PM9 hasn't been great. Both the front and rear sight have come loose from recoil , and the gun won't feed hollow points reliably. He has to buy Federal EFMJ (expanding full metal jacket) bullets for it.
If I can't conceal my fullsize M&P9, or my 1911 in the clothes I am wearing, I'll take a book bag or something if I am really concerned about it. If I need to pull a gun, it will be one that hasn't ever failed. My M&P has over 2000 rounds through it, and not a single FTF or FTE ever.
If you are real dead-set on getting a pocket gun, I would get a S&W Airweight .357. It's real reliable stopping power in a small package. They do have a punch, but you can carry hot .38+p for human defense, and .357 in bear territory.
Does he have an early VA S/N gun? Kahr has an updated recoil spring and they also polish the ramp as a free "recall". My PM9 shoots 124 gr. GD's 100%
He bought is somewhat recently. I would say within the last year for sure.
