+1 on the Kahr...nice guns but the recoil seems extreme when compared to others. I don't know why that is.

Yep, exactly. Very well made and relatively inexpensive to boot. Sub $400 is not uncommon.

The full frame XD is at the top of my list. LGS has the XD9 with the full range kit for 490. XD40 with the range kit for 510. The have an awesome feel to them.

Ya i use a 9mm at the range a norinco 1911 a-1 and the 9mm is a great caliber i use to use a 22 chiappa and the gun was horrible

That's because it was a chiappa lol not because it was a 22

I've heard very few people who HAVEN'T had issues with chiappa. I went and looked at some and they all felt like cheap toys to me. If anyone has anything spectacular to say about chiappa I'd love to hear it, I hate to just dismiss a manufacturer due to bad rep - but I wont throw my money at one. Or a hi-point. They're in a very similar boat in my book.

Have you looked at a Kahr K9? They're about 7 oz. heavier because of metal frame, that might soak up some of the recoil. It would be nice to shot some firearms models in the size of the CW9 just to see what you are most comfortable with. I happen to like the way Kahr's feel and for me they would be great for a CCW, however having never fired one it's possible they may not be all that fun for casual shooting. On the other hand for a self defense situation I'm not all that concerned as I suspect that with a heavy dose of adrenaline flowing in the veins I don't think recoil will be an issue.
