I shot LG1980's Kahr a few months ago. I think it was the K9. Thought the recoil was rather tame. It did have a tendency to shoot to the left, I think. Which was easily correctable.

Two things I've learned in handling semi-automatics:
* Make sure to apply grease to the frame and under the slide after cleaning -- makes racking the pistol much easier; and
* Instead of pulling the slide back, hold the slide with the weak hand and push the pistol grip forward with the strong hand (after releasing the safety). Ensure that the flesh of the hand between the thumb and forefinger is up and against the grip, just below the hammer, to engage the grip safety.
