Well I got out to shoot my new 442 today. Thanks again to everyone who responded to my previous questions regarding this gun.
My opinion is that the recoil of it with Blazer 158 lrn was very manageable. With both Hornady 125 +P XTP and Black Hills 125 +P XTP the recoil was about the same as my Glock 27 on .40 caliber. It had a bit of a snap to it, but nothing that bothered my wrist at all.
I am very happy with this gun. It shot really well with the Black Hills load and at $22.99 for a box of 50, that will be my carry load. It was very accurate for me at 10 yards (1 1/2") so it shoots well, is affordable, and uses a great little bullet moving along at 1050 fps for an energy value of 306 ft lbs. The Hornady load was very respectable for accuracy too --about 3"-- and moves along at 1120 fps.
