Kahr Firearms Group has launched its 2020 Fallen Officer Program, an effort the company launched in 2018 to honor fallen law enforcement officers. The firm is still accepting applications that qualify for 2019, but the 2020 program is now open.

Through the Fallen Officer Program, Kahr Arms will donate a Thin Blue Line Model PM9 customized with the fallen officer’s name on the side of the slide, and his or her badge number and “end of watch” date engraved on the top of the slide. The gun can then be used to raise money for the family or remain with them as a keepsake.

“Kahr Firearms Group is honored to continue the Fallen Officer Program to support law enforcement officers and their families,” said Jodi DePorter, director of marketing for Kahr Firearms Group. “We are committed to continuing our support of the families of those officers who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.”

The special-edition Thin Blue Line PM9 was introduced in 2018 by Kahr Firearms Group to honor the men and women of law enforcement who form a “thin blue line” between a lawful and lawless society. These officers place their lives at risk to protect their communities from harm.

The pistol’s slide is finished in durable Armor Black Cerakote. All other exposed metal parts are blacked out, and a blue line encircles the slide. This special model comes equipped with easy-to-see TruGlo Tactical Night Sights. Two flush mount six-round magazines and one seven-round extended magazine are included. Each are blackened for concealability. As with all Kahr Premium Series firearms, a full limited-lifetime warranty is included.

Applications are now available for the 2020 program and must be submitted by the law enforcement department or family or friends of the fallen officer. E-mail [email protected] to request the forms.
