    yeah in my glock 17. It seems low recoil but I one hand a .357 snub with full house loads all the time and think the 10mm is tame as well. I was also firing a pf-9 the other day with ranger bonded and thought it was tame so don't go by me

    I guess some of us aren't as macho as you. Some feel recoil more than others. I'm 6'2" and 275 and not a wuss, but I have a couple of handguns that I don't enjoy shooting that much. One is a 2" Taurus 617 titanium. Shooting full power 158 gr. mags through it makes my hand ache after a couple of cylinders. Proper grips that fit the shooter's hand make it easier. I took the Ribber grips off it and installed a set of Trackers, but I might go back to the Ribbers.

    The Keltec is a handful with +p rounds. A Hogue slip on grip helps a LOT. The benefits of +p are questionable in a 3" barrel. Corbon makes some good 9mm non+p as does Speer, Hornady, and other top line ammo makers.

    Well yeah, my hand hurts too but these guns are not range guns. Put a couple hundy of your carry ammo through them to verify feed,function, accuracy, and reliability and carry a lot shoot a little. A lot of these pocket guns and compacts arent made for high round counts. , Go buy a G17 or 1911 if you want a range plinker. Believe me in a high stress situation you won't even remember recoil or your hand hurting.

    Those are two statements I will agree with 100% However, you gotta practice enough with the gun to be GOOD with it. Your life depends on it. I carried a PF-9 for a couple of years, and ran a box of range ammo through it about every week, along with a mag of my carry ammo, just to keep in touch with the "real" recoil and sound. I had the extended mag base, the wide trigger pad, and a Hogue slip-on grip and I could handle shooting it that much without much problem.

    Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.
