This last summer I bought my wife a Kahr P9 for self defense. It first had a problem with the slide jamming on the next round to come out of the magazine. I sent it back to Kahr and they fixed it. Now it jams on the spent shell. When this happens, you have to turn the gun slide down and pop the slide to get the casing to fall to the ground. I guess I'll call Kahr again tomorrow. I definitely don't want my wife depending on a gun that continues to jam. Today she shot about 50 rounds and this happened to her I guess about 5 times. I'll keep sending it back to Kahr until they fix it. It's a shame because everything else about it is great. It's accurate, small profile, and fits great in the hand.

My first question is, what ammo are you using?
The second would be, are these factory mags or no?

I am leaning towards bad ammo too. Try a couple different brands in it.

I have been using Winchester Target/Range. I have also used some Wolf and Selmer&Bellot. Mostly target-type ammo. When I have used the self-defense type +p ammo, I don't recall having the problem. I just think that when you shell out $500 for a gun, it should be able to handle just about anything. Besides, it gets expensive to practice with premium ammo.
