While I welcome the business to Pa., what do we know about the son of Moon? btw, I’ve never heard of Kahr. I guess I’m getting older. Smith & Wesson, Colt, Winchester and my favorite, Henry. So many newer players I can’t keep up.
I’ve got my eye on a new Ruger but I’m not buying until they leave Ct .and move to a more firearm friendly state!
Kahr has been around since the early ‘80’s and produces a well-respected line of very concealable firearms, many in serious calibers. Good guns.
While I have a couple, and am knowledgeable about the basics of owning and operating a firearm, I'm hardly an afficianado or an expert...and I've heard of Kahr. They're definitely not some knock-off brand.
I don't know much about him but I know a little bit about his father Sun Myong Moon (sp?), He was a Korean who started a so-called "church" in Korea back in the 1950s. He and his church came to the US later on and he soon became a billionaire, usually by taking over businesses that were having financial difficulties and making them profitable again.
He was also known for suckering hundreds of thousands of young Americans into his phony-baloney "church". He and his so-called church were often in the news back when he married hundreds of his young converts in mass wedding ceremonies that often attracted nationwide media coverage. His son apparently took over the businesses after the father died a few years ago, and Kahr is just one of the US companies he owns.
I hope every gun and ammunition maker in New England, NY, NJ, and CA will get out of those states and move their manufacturing facilities and business offices to gun-friendly states in the south and west. I know that GA (where I live) would gladly welcome any and all of those companies and would probably offer tax breaks and other enticements to any gun manufacturer that would come on down. Why would any manufacturing business want to continue to operate in states where it's products are banned and it's potential customers are denied their Constitutional right to own and keep them?
Kahr Arms owns the Auto Ordnance - they make Thompsons (Tommy guns).
They also make fine semi auto handguns too.
