My wife carried the Kahr CW9 and was able to handle it well, but (even at only 15 ounces unloaded) was a bit heavy for her (not to shoot, but to purse carry). We converted her over to the Kahr P380 and she LOVES it. While I would agree with most that "bigger is better," with modern defensive ammo the penetration differences between 9mm and .380 is insignificant.
Another major difference between Kahrs and other small .380s is that the DA trigger is a smooth, long 5.5# as opposed to the LCP or BG at 11-12#. That is one of the best parts about this line of pistols. They don't shoot like a revolver!
I also modified her P380 with a grip sleeve and CT laser... so she's set!
