    I would like to hear form people who have shot both the P3AT .380 and a Seecamp .380 - how did the recoil between the two compare???

    I am trying to decide between a Seecamp .32 and .380 and heard that the 380 Seecamp recoil was pretty harsh. I thought that since I own a P3AT and don't have an issue with it's recoil, I therefore shouldn't have a problem with the seecamp's recoil.

    Seecamp's recoil is kind of weird..

    It wasn't harsh so much as hard to resist...

    Hold your hand like you're shooting a pistol, then move your hand into a position to knock on a door with the left side of the tip of the slide. (barrel up)

    That's what the recoil does. Snappy, not very pleasant, but not painful either.

    Seecamp=Blowback action.
    P-3AT=locked breach action=less felt recoil.

    The Seecamp sems to have more torque to it. Recoil of either is snappy. They are not designed as target guns to be shot for fun, though for a few rounds of practice or to verify feed and function of your ammo they are shootable.
