    Might help if you just post the model of gun it is. P40, CW40, PM40, MK40, etc.

    It's either the PM40 or the MK40, only ones with a 3" barrels (I believe).

    I got a MK9 and love it, I'd imagine the MK40 is a bit more snappy but the heft would make it a lot more manageable than other pistols of that size. It's a real nice sub-compact, perfect for pocket carry.

    Can't comment on the PM40.

    Edit: Noticed the black finish, must be the PM40.

    I have shot a friend's PM40 at the range several times. It is pretty snappy but still tolerable. It reminds me of my scandium framed S&W J-frame in 38 special. No problem with FTE's if you hold it correctly, new shooters might have issues.
    PS-I have the PM9 and love it.

    I love my PM40. Been a very reliable gun for me, although it HATES Fiochhi FMJ truncated nose ammo. It gobbles up Rem FMJ, WWB, Win XDM1 JHP, and DPX. I have 1200 rounds through it in the year I've owned it and the only problems were with the Fiocchi. I have no issues with the recoil, just realize what you are buying up front. It is accurate, great trigger, and easy to carry.

    Regards,
    Josh

    So happens a couple of friends came by today. One had a PM40. The other had the light-weight .45. I have the MK9 which is a very soft shooter. We spent a long afternoon on my range. I expected the PM40 to be a real handful, but it was not. I found it to be very manageable, reliable, and quite accurate. But I fell in love with the Kahr .45.

    I have half a dozen 1911 types in various sizes and configurations, so I can't justify adding another .45, but that little Kahr is certainly enough to make me throw rational thought to the wind. The PM40 is a little smaller than the .45, so if the smaller size is very important, then the PM40 or CW40 would be stellar choices. But I want that .45.

    How would you compare the recoil of a PM40 to a Ruger LCR or S&W 442?
