    I had a PM9 and P9 and they had considerable recoil...but the P40 I got a couple months ago is crazy!!:wow: Trying to get off a second shot quick is a trick. I put an AGrip on the grip and that helped alot...but it's still a hand full. My new M&P 40c has half the recoil of the Kahr P40. A little slide weight helps alot!!:supergrin:

    I really don't have that same sensation with my P-40, but have heard others give the same report as you. I'm not a macho man, 6', 165 lbs, with medium size hands. Hang in there and you'll adapt.

    I always thought the recoil on the P40 was easily manageable. In fact, double taps are a matter of timing and rhythm, and not that hard to accomplish.
