HAHA ok back to the subject.
But I guess if you really want something easier to handle then maybe look at getting one that is heavier? Sigs or H&Ks are a little heavier and have models with recoil reducers and they do not all come with a polymer frame which will give you that little bump to the bottom reciever wieght. So that might be the route you take.
Also if you really like the Glock but maybe not the .40 try the .45. You will find that the .45 in a medium sized frame will be very easy to control. The .45 has more of a sluggish push than a firm kick like the .40. Of course you will lose some power going to a .45 but you might find it better in the Glock for what you are doing. Good luck!
My XD SC is not bad at all with 180 grain loads, but is a bit snappy with hot 155 Gr. loads. I stopped shooting them and only load/carry 180 Gr. in it.
Really? I thought the PX4 .40 felt like a 9mm. I didn't have any muzzle flip to speak of.
I think all of the H&K's that are currently in production have a recoil reduction system, not just the USP's. The USP, USPc, and P2000 would all be good candidates.
People perceive recoil differently I'm sure...but after just two range visits the PX4 has become my favorite to shoot (it's currently my only .40) all my other guns are either 9mm or .45. I'm very lucky to have guns that are reliable and great to shoot......if they weren't I'd sell em (and have sold many).

And learn to use your arms as shock absorbers, not locked as solid rods, or the snappy recoil from a .40 will punish you over time especially in the wrists and elbows!
Yeah, this more along the lines of my experience with the PX4. It felt like a 9mm to me, I can't figure out how anyone got muzzle flip out of it... I guess a different grip or really small hands maybe.
Try the Ruger KP944DC.
what I was thinking.
