K9 question, based on K40
Shot the K40 at the local range recently, and noticed an unusual (surprising) amount of muzzle flip. The gun was fairly jumping to get out of my hands, and while I considered it was perhaps that eager to attack the target, it seemed more to me like poor recoil management either on my part or the gun's. I emailed Kahr about it, and they said simply that the .40 S&W generates far greater chamber pressure than either the (for example) 9mm or .45 (both of which I shot that day out of smaller guns than the K40 and controlled much easier than the K40), and is known to have greater muzzle flip.
With that stated, how familiar is anyone here with the K9? I figured in all stainless steel like the K40, but using a smaller bullet, it should be easily able to handle the recoil. Recoil-management is prety important for me, because this handgun purchase I one to fill the CCW position; I can't depend on a weapon that is hard to control.
