    Ok decided to fire some rounds a little earlier and wanted to shoot my Karh .40 and my ruger 40.

    Ruger shoots great as always....just bought a 1000 rouds of sellier bellot ammo and it shot great....

    then i went to shot my karh .40 that i have maybe but 100 rounds in and it just keep grouping low...i mean several inches at 10 yards....you thinks its just me and takes some getting used to a new gun....how is you accuracy with the sub compacts....

    im thinking its just me but wonder how you shot your subcompacts....do you do any thing different.

    I would say that it' slikely you getting used to a new gun. I have that issue when I switch from my Glock 17 or Ruger MKIII to my Walther PPK/S. After firing one of the two full size guns, the first mag through the subcompact is low. For me it could be the different sight styles.

    Get somebody else, a known good shooter, to shoot it and and see if it does the same.

    Are you able to get all your fingers around the grip? Do you have a grip extension? Is there a considerable difference between grip angles of the two? If you aren't shooting off-center and just low, I'd say probably just a matter of adjusting to the Kahr.

    At ten yards, I find it pretty hard to get decent grouping with my PM9, but I'm pretty sure its me and not the gun. I think its just tough to consistently steady that little gun. I find the flush mags work better for me. I'm not gonna talk about what happens when I shoot weak hand only... :oops:

    Im able to hold the gun fine it is small so my hand fits well around it. I think i just need to get some more time in with it but ive been working 80hrs a week and finishing school at night so my time has been extremly limited lately.

    What model is it? PM40? MK40? They are small guns; I had a failure to fire when I first got it because my trigger finger made contact with my thumb. :)

    I think more trigger time is the solution in my limited experience. I know I could use more practice with my PM9. Last time I was at the range (I think its been over a month now :() I looked ok at 7 yards, but at around 10/11 it looked like there was some sorta force field covering the middle of the target. :lol:
