    MK40 & Double Tap

    Is NOT recommended! I've fired my little Kahr MK40 a lot, +P loads and all. Never really had problem. Then tried some Double tap for fun. Darn thing almost pivoted out of my hand! This is with stock mag, not the extended. Then I tried concentrating on a strong grip and even then it was bucking hard. Threw about 2-3 FTF per mag. The ammo's just too hot for me and this little gun! Went back to "normal" loads like HST and had no further problems! Not sure which DT ammo this was, probably the 165 or 180gr.

    IMO, double tap requires a full sized gun.

    I shot them fine with my 3.5" XD 40 subcompact. It's a bit bigger than the Kahr, but nowhere near full size. A bit snappy but manageable and no FTF's.
