I have the CW40 and want a CW45 in a bad way. Let me know how your hand feels after the 200 round break in.
Made it to the range last night. The gun shot flawless. The kick is in my mind no worse than my Ruger p89 or my LCP. It really is all relative. I was able to shoot follow up shots one handed with fair accuracy so it passes that test for me. My hand was not tired or beat up at all. I was actually sad that I had to stop. For reference my mother came along wither her gun also, she put a magazine through the Kahr and loved it. She is 5'3 105lbs. I don't think she would want to put 200 rds through one, but she could certainly handle it in a defense situation without a problem at all. Food for thought for your wife, mother, or anyone with a smaller frame.
I shot 150 rounds. I could have shot another 150 but it was late. I had 1 ftf due to a bad primer, and one SP. All the residue near the end made it harder for the extractor to get the shells out, but it worked great.
Personally I felt the accuracy was fantastic. I am not a marksman by any means but my groups were tight and it went where I aimed, even further down range. The range I shoot at is a little dim in one area and the white sites showed up no problem.
This gun can be broken down by hand with no tools required (Line up the dots and pull out the slide lock lever, push forward and it's off). Cleaning was a snap as the slide comes off the rail and getting the barrel and spring apart was simple.
All in all I am extremely pleased with it and feel it was a very good investment considering the price.
I used WWB FMJ and Blazer to see if it would handle lower end stuff. This is going to make a great carry piece and I would recommend it.
