After renting and enjoying a P-32 at a local range, I decided to get one for myself. My motivations were threefold: Although I already own a Kahr PM9, I wanted a gun that could be left in the car without fear of being out $600 if it were stolen. Secondly, it would be nice to have a gun that could be concealed places even the already-tiny PM9 couldn't. Finally, it was just plain fun to shoot. First, the obligatory glamor shot. (As with almost all the photos, click for a larger, bandwidth-gobbling version.) I was surprised by how tiny the P-32 was compared to the PM9, even though the two guns are pretty close in size if you trust the manufacturers' numbers. Problem is, you can't: The numbers were misleading in part because Kahr publishes the slide length, not overall length, of their guns. Tricksy. The length difference is most pronounced from the top down... ...and the width is noticeable from the rear. The most dramatic angle is from the front, although the relative slide:barrel ratios make the .32 barrel of the P-32 appear almost the same size as the PM9's barrel: When you look at the size of the magazines and ammo, though, the difference is clear. That's Federal 124-grain +P EFMJ on the left and Federal 71-grain ball on the right. I've done a gentle fluff-and-buff followed by a Candiru-grade cleaning and greasing, but the action is still a little stiff. Oh darn, looks like I'll have to break it in at the range!
