I think Ringo (OP) was a drive-by questioner.

I hate it when that happens!

You're welcome Ringo.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

That's where the 7.3 oz more for the MK 40 might help ease the recoil pain. My early experiences with nasty recoil started with 6" barreled SA revolvers so a light weight .40 pistol probably wouldn't bother me too much. I presently own a Charter Arms .44 Bulldog which has a pretty stiff recoil as it parallels some of the .45 ACP loads. What I figure is that in a firefight situation with adrenalin flowing at max it's doubtful recoil will be much of an issue.

Kahr PM9. Great in the pocket or on the belt. Break it in correctly and you will love it forever.
