My wife and son absolutely hate shooting my LCP. It doesn't bother me a bit, but I have more padding in paws.
However, they both can shoot my 637 all day long. Recoil between the two is similar, but I think there's a bigger and more rounded grip to absorb it on the snubby. The LCP basically has a short blade for a grip. Great for concealment, not so great for shooting with fragile hands.
