“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.”
