Pomona, NY – If you believe that you have earned bragging rights with your long-range shooting skills, now is the time to share it with YouTube fans. Kahr Firearms Group invites all shooters, 18-years or older, to participate in the Kahr 2014 YouTube Video Long-Range Shooting Contest. Bragging rights may only earn a nice pat on the back, but the grand prize for this YouTube contest is worth far more. Kahr is offering the winner $5,000 in value on any Kahr Firearms Group products which includes; Kahr, Magnum Research and Auto-Ordnance.
“Our goal of this shooting contest is to dispel the myth that accuracy is sacrificed in exchange for a smaller sized pistol, like that found in our concealed carry product line.” stated Justin Moon, CEO of Kahr Firearms Group. “Given the tight tolerances to which all Kahr pistols are manufactured, Kahr pistols are extremely accurate at ranges even out beyond that which pistols are generally fired. I have been shooting Kahr pistols for more than 20 years, and even at more than 100 yards, the accuracy and the groupings are impressive. I feel confident that the videos will more than demonstrate just how effective Kahr firearms are.”
In support of the universe of Kahr fans, Kahr Firearms Group invites shooting enthusiasts to submit a video of them shooting any Kahr pistol at 100 yards or more and then posting it to YouTube. Next, provide a URL link directly to Kahr and the winner will be determined by the video that has garnered the most views. The contest period runs November 1, 2014 through December 31, 2014 and the winner will be announced on January 6, 2015.
The Long-Range Shooting Contest video must be no longer than 30-seconds to 3-minutes in length, and must be original footage. The footage must demonstrate shooting at 100-yards, exclusively using a Kahr pistol. Check the Kahr website at www.kahr.com/videocontest.asp for a complete list of contest rules.

Pomona, NY – A crowd of over 180 people shared in the celebration on Thursday, May 29th of the official ground-breaking ceremony of the Kahr Firearms Group new headquarters in Blooming Grove Township of Pike County Pennsylvania located in the Pocono region of the state. Justin Moon, CEO, Kahr Firearms Group welcomed Pennsylvania Lt. Governor Jim Cawley to the event which also included a number of key state officials.
Early last year, Kahr made the key decision to move the headquarters out of New York and move to the more gun-friendly state of Pennsylvania. The purchase included 620 acres of prime commercial real estate from the Pike County Industrial Park Development Group. The ground-breaking ceremony christens the first step in the multi-phased relocation. The corporate offices and the research and development departments will be the first to be relocated. When the second phase commences, manufacturing operations will be expanded to the Pike County location to meet the increasing manufacturing demands for Kahr Firearms Group products.
“We are just a few months into the initial construction phase of our new corporate headquarters, and already the support we are receiving from the Pike County Industrial Park Development Group, the local community, and even Governor Corbett has been extremely welcoming,” stated VP of Marketing and Sales, Frank Harris. “It clearly demonstrates how eager the state of Pennsylvania is to bring job opportunities to the citizens of the state, while also supporting our right to manufacture firearms.”
The move to Pennsylvania will make for a far more cohesive relationship between the firearms manufacturer and the State than what they have experienced in New York. As Kahr Firearms Group expands over the next few years, they will reach out to the community with the addition of employment opportunities.
