I have not fired a .45, but it shouldn't be too bad, considering my revolver has no slide to help soak up some recoil.
My .40 caliber handgun is a bit snappy, and wears out my hand after 4 to 5 magazines.
Thanks all for the welcome.
Glad I found this site. I know my family doesn't enjoy talking about guns as much as I do..lol

Welcome from California! I recommend you go and buy one of each handgun at your local gunshop and then settle in for some serious shooting!

From one newby to another! Good to have ya and a belated Merry Christmas!
I'm leaning towards the .45 myself and looking for a Glock 36 possibly. I've shot a lot of .40 S&W through my G23 but the muzzle flip was something to really get used to. it seems to me (and I could be wrong) that the .45, while very powerful, had a different type of recoil--maybe less sharp and more strong (does that make sense?).
Anywhoo...I'll stop there and say welcome and enjoy!
