Problem with a concealed carry gun?

I have a Kahr CW9 which I use for carry. I have had it for over 4 years, and have had it out to the range 3-4 times because it hurts my hand after 30 - 40 rounds.
It is a small gun, 5.9" in long, 3.5" barrel, 4.5" high, .9" wide.

I get a tremendous recoil from firing the auto, and after many rounds my hand hurts and it become uncomfortable. Also, if I use only the pad of my trigger finger, after many rounds something (trigger) seems to stick into the bottom of my finger where it becomes very painful.

The range officer told me that this gun was not made to fire round after round at a range so what did I expect.

I would like to know if most small autos behave in a similar way, or is it something I am doing wrong, or is it the Kahr.

If it is the Kahr, can some recommend an auto of similar size that will stand up to the recoil and not pain my hand?


My larger autos, Glock -19, STI RangeMaster, CZ 75 Shadow, and Sig. 226 X5 tactical do not behave anything like this. That is why I "blame" the firearm
