    Is it wise to use either Fed. HST 147gr +P or Speer Gold Dot 124gr +P in a Kahr K9 or MK9? I'm concerned as some have said +P can beat up a pistol.

    Early on, the Kahr folks told me the all-steel 9mms were built to handle +P and +P+, and I never saw any problems with either. Hotter ammo will wear guns sooner, just as driving our cars at Autobahn speed will probably do the same.
