The twelve-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?

Firstly, the .45 loses much in a barrel shorter than a Commander length as HP's don't always open up and 1911's shorter than Commander length are a crap shoot for reliability as well. Also, the G36 has a spotty track record for reliability. Some work great & others don't. If you're dead set on a micro polymer .45 you may check out the S&W M&P as well.

I had the Kahr in .40 and now have the Glock 36. For me, the Glock is a far better choice. Might not be true for you.

I've had 4 Kahr polymer series. 3 of them went back to the factory for unexplainable - dimensionally out of tolerance ftf/e, broken trigger return spring, and something else detrimental all right out of the box. The fourth I traded in at a dealer who knew of the problems. I would not sell a kahr to anyone in good conscience. IMO Kahr's are overpriced paperweights - Great theory - terrible engineering and manufacturing qualityfficeffice" />

I do have a G36 amongst other pistols, I have put approx 1200 230 grain fmj's, and approx 100 -200 of golden sabers, gold dots, hst +p, 185 +p, 230 gr std defensive loads with only one conditional stovepipe:

Upon closer examination of the stovepipe (was a reload during an IDPA match) - the casing was stamped Winchester 1942 and the case head looked to be excessively thin. So I don't blame it on the G36.

I think there may have been legitimate issues with the G36 when it first came out - which should be long gone by now. I think a good portion of the G36 issues are user error. The grip has a longer front to back dimension to compensate for the thinness. Also - the gun is lightweight and you need to keep a firm grip. +p loads are uncomfortable and the mag extension flexes a little and pinches your little finger.

I stick with gold dot 230 gr short barrel loads for the ballistic reasons stated above.

I apologize for the bad grammar but I am sick as a dog!

Good info all the way around mbat.

I've been watching Kahr posts pretty closely and it seems there are two versions - great ones and otherwise.

No rhyme or reason, just the way it is I guess.

Too bad too, because those that are lucky enough to get one that runs just seem to love em

I really like my G36. It is rugged and reliable. The difference in thickness does not sound like much, but it sure feels like a big difference when it comes to carrying it.

Yeah it breaks my heart too. My Kahr P9 and my dad's Kahr CW9 have both been perfect. However I can not deny that others have had problems with them.

Mine is perfect and you can not have it.

I like the G-36 far more than any other model offered by Glock. To my mind it is the best balanced for overall size and thickness and is very comfortable to shoot an carry.

Mmmmmmm. G29! I love mine, but I sure hope it does better as a defensive gun than it did on "Glock The Plates" last weekend! Fun to shoot, but leaving 3 plates standing after a full magazine is ugly. Was it the gun? The sights? The full power Hornady XTPs? It couldn't have been the shooter, er...
