Question Any KP91DC in 40 S&W Folks Out There?

I have had a KP91DC in 40 S&W, for several years, that I have never had a chance to use. Wondering if there is any forum members, with any past or present experience, using this pistol. New gun range up the road and would like to finally give it a try. Best ammo, problems, opinions (good/ bad) or recommendations appreciated.

No experience here, with that one, but it's a P series....everyone here that has a P8X or P9x can attest to their greatness. Built like a tank, should shoot anything you put in it. I have a P97DC (.45 acp). Love shooting it, although don't take it out much. Yours should be fun to shoot (I like the snappy .40). Take it and several boxes of ammo and have fun!

Perfecta from Walmart. Brass, cheap, goes bang!

I have it bookended; P89 and P94 in .40. No issues with either. Have fun!

Get the Hogue wraparound grips.

I mainly shoot remanufactured ammo from Freedon Munitions when I don't have my own reloads.

My P91 handles it well with no problems what so ever ...

As the others here attest, the p91 is a great pistol, I own one as well, built like a tank, nearly indestructible, and you will wear out before it will. Any ammo works fine, I usually shot winchester 155 grain or 165 grain white box when I used factory ammo, now just reload all my own instead. What ever you do, hold onto it, they are not making anymore, and for me the 91 was the hardest to come by due to the lesser amounts of them being made compared to the other p series like the 89, 90, and 95.

Took my P89,P93 &P95 out for a workout yesterday.
Great pistols and you will really enjoy that KP 91.
I do find that, unlike striker fired pistols, I have much better trigger control when using my trigger finger much like a double action revolver.
That is the first joint instead of the pad.
Even when in SA mode it feels and shoots better.
Maybe just me though. Anyone else found this to be so?

I saw one P91 in all my years of searching used gun racks....they only made them from 1992-1994. Treasure that pistol, they are well built and soak up the recoil of the 40S&W nicely.

To the OP...hope you enjoy that P-91 in .40...for personal defense, I prefer Winchester's Silvertip JHP round for the .40...nice shooter too!

To hrocco76...I, too, have a P-93...a DAO version...and I love it! It's one of my favorite shooters!

I agree also, I have shot the sr9, and 40. It was just not for me. I am just a die hard and perfer my p series any day. They are highly accurate if you do your part, and I have never had a malfunction and I own one of every series, think its 12 in total.

I've owned this one since the early '90s and have ran thousands of rounds through it. I've never had any issues with any ammo, factory or reloads, it eats 'em all! It can be a lot to get a hand around, being a full size with a staggered stack, but it sure shoots nice!
